First Screenings in Arab World, LA Times and Al-Akhbar articles

I write after a long time and realize now more than ever, how relevant "A Jihad for Love" is. Two weeks ago we returned from Beirut where the Heinrich Boell Foundation organized the first ever public screenings of the film in any Arab nation-there were two screenings-one at The Beirut Art Lounge and the other at Hamra's Zico House. Both were packed and the response was amazing.

There is an interesting and short interview with the LA Times here, and the comments section remains, well, interesting!

There was a strong reaction in the Arab media, as expected and leading Left newspaper Al-Akhbar published a piece here and the comments were not all as friendly (though some were).
