Middle East Complexities: Culture and Conflict: News Resources,
Blogs & Opinion

This guide provides resources to help understand and analyze the often conflicting cultural, religious, political, and historical forces at work in the Middle East. It also served as a companion resource to FV's Spring 2015 Syria Global Gatherings.

A Note About News Sources

News sources are not immune to bias, because reporters and editors are human beings, with their own conscious and unconscious opinions and points of view. Keep this in mind as you read coverage of the Middle East and North Africa, a large, complex and often contentious region. Consulting a variety of news sources, rather than relying on only one or two, may help provide you with a clearer view of events.
