Saad Eddin Ibrahim, the noted Egyptian-American political scientist who was imprisoned for nearly a year and a half before being acquitted, has penned a new editorial for the Daily Star. It's on the status of Christians in various Arab countries and is well-timed to coincide with the current sectarian tension in Egypt over church construction and the conversion of Christian women to Islam.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
