What our members say about Arab Digest

Arab Digest is a trusted source of Middle East analysis for senior executives and policy-makers worldwide.

“Exceptionally valuable analyses – timely, insightful and cogent”

Ray Close, former CIA Middle East specialist

“Since WAND and the Al Shafie Miles Bulletins began I have been reading them closely. They are a unique and very valuable source of information on a wide variety of Middle Eastern problems. I would urge anyone who wants to follow events in this area to read them regularly.”

Özdem Sanberk, retired ambassador; former permanent undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ankara

“WAND offers us a level of informed commentary which is unique and much valued. It has the colour and credibility which is lacking in many of the more widely available but sterile open sources of information.”

Stephen White, President, Systematic UK

“Illuminating commentary” which “very much helped me remain in touch with developments across the Arab world.”

George Morton, independent banking consultant with more than twenty years’ experience in Gulf banking, until recently a director of the European Islamic Investment Bank

“We have been thoroughly enjoying the WAND newsletters, which are highly topical and exceptionally well written (and therefore a pleasure to read).  The combination of accessible tone and authoritative commentary is especially appealing, and a significant differentiator from the great churn of available media commentary and analysis on the Middle East.”

Michael A. Innes, Director and CEO, Thesiger and Co. Ltd

“Getting your emails – love them – Just want to let you know your analysis is ‘spot on’!”

Pat Mancino, Executive Vice President, National Council on U.S. – Arab Relations

“Fascinating, well-written and spot on with its analysis.”

Tarek Radwan, Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, Atlantic Council

“The Arab Digest is an excellent product, in that the authors have a real eye for picking out the issue of the day and offering up multiple perspectives on it.  I often find myself forwarding them out to my colleagues at our embassies in the region and waiting for their reactions.”
