9 Nov 2010 at National Press Club, Washington DC

Dining with al-Qaeda has been selected as one of the books on show at the National’s Press Club’s annual Book Fair & Authors’ Night on 9 November 2010! This year the jamboree showcases 90 journalist-authors who sign their books that have appeared in the preceding year. NPR’s Diane Rehm is the honorary chairperson of the event, which runs from 5.30pm and ends “promptly” at 8.30pm. I will be joining the authors gathered at the 13th floor ballroom of the National Press Building near Metro Center at 529 14th St NW, at the corner of F & 15th Sreets NW in downtown Washington. Hope to see you there!

    Dear Mr. Pope, I was somewhat surprised, and very pleased, that, in your book, “Dining with al-Qaeda,” you were courageous enough to be critical of Israel. As you note on p.53 re IAK, most reports in the Washington Post and the NY Times show a definite bias for Israel, and make no apoligies for it. Your reporting was very straightforward and factual. Thank you. I wish you would write a book specifically about the Israeli/Palestinian issue.

      Thanks for your message, I’m glad you liked the book. By the way, when I singled out those newspapers it was because there were studies about their contents to quote from and also some mea culpa from their editors. I think it’s the case in most Western newspapers, because of a feeling that Israel is on the West’s side. As for an Israel/Palestine book, thanks for the suggestion, but I don’t think I’ll go there — of the 300 books appearing every year on the Middle East, most of them are already on this subject!
