New Tingis

Tingis, the Moroccan American magazine of ideas and culture, has published its new issue, which you can already preview online. Tingis, you’ll remember, is edited by Anouar Majid, who is also the author of A Call for Heresy: Why Dissent is Vital to Islam and America. I keep meaning to write about this book, and I keep getting sidetracked by other assignments. Here’s an interview with Majid on Bill Moyers’ show, just to give you an idea about his work.

Anyway, the new issue of Tingis includes a neat article about the use of the star of David on the Moroccan flag (prior to the French occupation, of course, and the ensuing tribalism), as well as a short story by a young Arizona-based writer, Abdennabi Benchehda: “The Daughter of Dr. Butrus.” Check it out.
