Leading Middle East online monthly, The Tower Magazine, launches August issue.

Despite intense international sanctions, the Iranian regime has managed to spread its network across Sub-Saharan Africa, supporting terrorists and acquiring nuclear materials—as revealed in the new issue of The Tower Magazine. Elsewhere in the Middle East, Morocco as emerged as a model of political liberalization that stands in sharp contrast to the violent upheavals of the “Arab Spring”; other features explore the Israeli communities living in the shadow of Hamas rockets, the changing demographics of Tel Aviv, the misguided Olympic dreams of Istanbul, and a new documentary film about Israel’s early years.

Since its launch in April, The Tower Magazine has quickly become an indispensable read on Middle East affairs, and a crucial source for original writing, reporting, research, and policy on the region.

Speaking about the new issue, editor David Hazony said, “As the world is glued to events across the Middle East, this month we offer important new writing on Iran, Morocco, Turkey and the challenges of living along the edge of the Gaza Strip.”

Highlights include:

  •     With the election of Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani, Washington DC based writer Armin Rosen discusses how Iran has spread its network across Sub-Saharan Africa. In the process, Iran has managed to continue arming terrorists and acquiring uranium for its nuclear program in spite of sanctions.
  •     Following the recent overthrow of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the ongoing bloodshed in Syria, Michael J. Totten discusses the progress of a “silent revolution” in Morocco. Based on extensive in-the-field interviews, the author shows how Morocco has emerged a model for liberalization in the Arab world without enduring any of the violent upheavals of the Arab Spring.
  •     Liam Hoare pays a personal visit to the Jewish communes, known as “kibbutzim,” located close to the border with the Gaza Strip. Weary of huddling in bomb shelters and worried about their economic and physical future, theirs is a story of struggle, decline, resilience, and hope.

“There is no better place than The Tower Magazine to turn for exclusive in-depth reporting in the Middle East, coupled with world-class photography and stunning imagery,” said David Hazony. “It is the voice for all things coming out of the region.”
