Alastair Crooke

I’ve started reading a book about Hamas, written by an Arab who knows several members of the group. The introduction to the book is written by Alastair Crooke, former head of British intelligence and founder of a Beirut-based organization called Conflicts Forum.

Conflicts Forum’s mission is to dialogue with Islamist groups and the West, and it’s the organization I most want to intern with. It would make the perfect Boren fellowship, together with Arabic language study!
