The Levant was established in 2014 by Dr. Haytham Mouzahem, and Catherine Shakdam as independent journalists and analysts, with an interest for the Middle East. A much talked about region of the world, the Middle East has suffered much injustice when it comes to the media, as bias, prejudices and political motivations have clouded and perverted what should have been a balanced and realistic account of the truth.
At The Levant our duty is to the truth, the essence of journalism.
We intend bring our readers a piece of the Middle East to their lives. Unapologetic in our coverage, we will remain free from all bias … even if it means ruffling a few feathers along the way. And as we all know the truth often generates anger … especially in the Middle East where politics and policies are so entangled in one another that realities quite literally get lost in translation.
Our angle will be regional. We want you, our readers to see things from locals’ perspective – not a reflection of your understanding of the region but how life is on the ground.
Our journey is one of true and profound love for the Middle East and its people – beyond cultural, sectarian and political barrier.
We hope you enjoy the journey!
Owner and Editor in Chief: Dr. Haytham Mouzahem
