Guy Gabriel is a journalist and adviser to Arab Media Watch, a London-based organisation that
monitors Arab-related issues in the British media. Originally trained in European
languages, he also holds a Masters from the School of Oriental and African Studies
in Middle Eastern politics. He experienced the events of 9/11, the invasion of
Iraq, 7/7 and their respective media coverage all while living in the Middle
East, yet found no evidence of a clash of cultures, nor confirmation of what is
so frequently portrayed in the Western media.
