Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow Fellow at the Middle East Forum. His writings, translations, and observations have appeared in a variety of publications, including the Financial Times, Jerusalem Post, Los Angeles Times, New York Times Syndicate, United Press International, USA Today, Washington Post, and Washington Times.
Mr. Ibrahim’s dual-background—born and raised in the U.S. by Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East—has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets (positioning him to explain the latter to the former).
His interest in Islamic civilization was first piqued when he began visiting the Middle East as a child in the 1970s. Interacting and conversing with the locals throughout the decades has provided him with an intimate appreciation for that part of the world, complementing his academic training.
