So long, Raymond
For the past year Raymond Ibrahim has enlightened us here at Jihad Watch with his insightful posts (1,367 of them!), his superb explorations of jihadist belief and practice, his illuminating reports on the brilliant programs of Fr. Zakaria Botros, and more. But now we must with great regret bid him adieu, as he will be devoting his full energies to his work as associate director of the Middle East Forum.
Raymond has added a great deal to Jihad Watch, and he will be missed. But this is just farewell and not goodbye: we will be continuing to follow his excellent work here, and may soon be working together on some projects.
Raymond, thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for the cause of freedom.
