"The Middle East in London is a bimonthly magazine published by the London Middle East Institute. Each issue is organised around a central theme related to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and the variety of themes is constantly growing. From issues focussing on particular countries (Iraq, Turkey, Palestine) to those spotlighting topics such as oil, contemporary art, the environment and minorities, the magazine endeavours to offer its readers articles that are thought-provoking and fresh; it is not a news publication. The works of contemporary Middle Eastern artists are often featured on the cover and inside the magazine, familiarising readers with MENA’s art scene and adding additional layers of depth to issue themes and individual articles.

Reviews of books, events, films, restaurants, etc. related to the Middle East can also be found inside the pages of The Middle East in London, along with a comprehensive guide to events pertaining to MENA happening in and around London."

"ACCESS ISLAM is a pioneering new tool designed to support the study of Islam in grades 4-8. Comprising over 100 minutes of digital video from the award-winning PBS series RELIGION & ETHICS NEWSWEEKLY the site also contains high quality, multi-media tools; downloadable lesson plans; and resources related to Islamic holidays, traditions and cultures. The video segments can be used alone, or in conjunction with any of 10 lesson plans which are aligned to national standards and vetted by an advisory committee of experts in education and Islamic cultures. We hope these materials will offer both students and teachers exciting new ways to bring to life a fuller understanding of Muslims the world over."

Sound Archive: "Osama Bin Laden Tapes"


http://www.audaciousascetic.com/listen.htm

"Osama Bin Laden Tapes" is a companion website to the book The Audacious Ascetic :
What the Bin Laden Tapes Reveal About Al-Qa'ida
by Flagg Miller.

"Website has been designed to allow non-Arabic speakers to listen to material featured in The Audacious Ascetic while reading English translations in real-time as the recordings unfold. As the book demonstrates, much of the meaning of bin Laden’s words and the significance of Al-Qa’ida for his early primary audiences was lost when edited and converted to print, video, and electronic media for global consumption. These recorded excerpts have been selected and produced specifically to accompany the book. They are best contextualized in tandem with the perspectives and arguments therein."
