Mashallah News is composed of a group of journalists’, bloggers’ and graphic designers’ collective. Mashallah is their platform of disOriented news.

Mashallah News was born in 2010, at the end of a long and hot summer. They are based in Beirut, the funky and decadent capital of Lebanon.

They come from all over the Mediterranean sea and beyond. They were born and bred OR chose to live in the region. Mashallah News team aim at spreading a new outlook on countries from Morocco to Iran, everywhere the word Mashallah is used, thanks to their team of correspondents reporting from major cities in the region.

They are interested in underground cultural scenes, social taboos, multilingualism, identity crises, organic wine, urban planning, body painting, humor, art and going beyond mental, cultural and national frontiers.

They are tired of cultural propaganda, bribes, scape-goats, Lawrence of Arabia, CNN, ill-informed foreign correspondents, camels, Samuel Huntington, pollution, palm trees and flying carpets. They believe in describing cultural change, social issues and the unexpected, rather than repeating stereotypes and simpleminded images.

They are a multilingual platform because they want to reach English, French and Arabic speaking audiences.
