I was born and raised in and around Vancouver B.C., and have been a journalist since 1993. I've won several awards for investigative reporting and column writing, and now specialize in Middle East politics, Canadian politics, anti-Arab/anti-Muslim media propaganda, and language.
For seven years I wrote a political column for the bi-weekly Arabic/English Canadian Arab News, and am published in whatreallyhappened.com, mediamonitors.net, the Middle East Times and Tehran Times and other publications. I am also a freelance editor and the author of The Host and the Parasite—How Israel's Fifth Column Consumed America, an analysis how agents of Israel came to control U.S. Middle East policy, and Exploding Middle East Myths—15 Years of Fighting Zionist Propaganda.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Russian Studies and a Master’s degree in Political Science from the University of British Columbia.
