The Debate

The Arab World and its media

Another 24 hour news channel in Arabic? As we extend our own coverage to 24 hours a day, we'll talk of the need for evolution, not revolution when it comes to free speech in the Arab world.

Fouad Al OBAID, Columnist for Kuweit Times
Samir AITA, Chief Editor for the Edition Arabe - Le Monde Diplomatique
Nahida NAKAD, Head of France 24 Arabic Service
Mohammed HAWAS, Chairman of Sahara Group UK and candidate to the next Egyptian presidential election (2011) and candidate to the former one (2005) (via satellite from London, UK)
