Arab Labor: The Complete First Season


ARAB LABOR is a raucous and irreverent critically acclaimed comedy series from Israel about Amjad, a Palestinian journalist and Israeli citizen in search of his identity. His personal quest for status and success as a journalist at a Jerusalem newspaper is foiled by the humiliating searches he endures everyday when he leaves his Palestinian neighborhood to commute to his job. In the midst of a walloping identity crisis, Amjad jockeys between two cultures as he tries to polish his image for his Jewish friends and colleagues while enjoying his own down-to-earth family life.

Cultural Foundation – the first stop in your travel itinerary whilst in Abu Dhabi

As the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is the more traditional counterpart of the glitzy Dubai. No less modern and sleek than Dubai, Abu Dhabi is a great mix of progression and tradition. A traveller to the country will find minarets dominating the sky and sitting alongside skyscrapers that gleam and glisten in the sky. Taxis are a safe way to travel about the country, whilst there are a great number of historic, cultural, entertainment, shopping and dining places to visit. The Corniche is a stretch that is home to a variety of hotel accommodation, dining, shopping and entertainment options, whilst the Heritage Village will give you a peek in to the Bedouin tribes that once lived in most parts of the Emirates.

For those visitors yearning to gain greater insight in to the United Arab Emirates will find the Cultural Foundation on Old Airport Road to be a worthwhile experience. The structure of the building alone is attractive, with unique Islamic designs, white colonnades, courtyards and lush gardens. Striving to preserve and promote the culture, history and architectural heritage of the United Arab Emirates, the Cultural Foundation has a collection of artefacts and items all supporting the cause. One of the most interesting items to see in this tourist attraction of Abu Dhabi is the old model of Abu Dhabi city, musical instruments, Islamic art and well preserved photographs.

Home to a theatre, library, cinema, lecture rooms, exhibition centre, meeting rooms and a coffee shop, the Cultural Foundation offers a host of other services as well. Workshops and language classes are held right throughout the year, with special events and concerts held annually, such as the AD International Book Fair, Emirates Film Competition, Emirates Photo Competition, Qalam Art Paris and so much more.

Making a trip to Abu Dhabi? Make your reservation at an Abu Dhabi hotel such as Kingsgate Hotel Abu Dhabi that is carefully designed to meet the needs of the business and leisure traveller. In comparison to other hotels in Abu Dhabi, this one stands out for its exceptional service, wide range of facilities and easy access to the Abu Dhabi Mall.

1948: A History of the First Arab-Israeli War

  • ISBN13: 9780300151121
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description

This history of the foundational war in the Arab-Israeli conflict is groundbreaking, objective, and deeply revisionist. A riveting account of the military engagements, it also focuses on the war’s political dimensions. Benny Morris probes the motives and aims of the protagonists on the basis of newly opened Israeli and Western documentation. The Arab side—where the archives are still closed—is illuminated with the help of intelligence and diplomatic materials.


Morris stresses the jihadi character of the two-stage Arab assault on the Jewish community in Palestine. Throughout, he examines the dialectic between the war’s military and political developments and highlights the military impetus in the creation of the refugee problem, which was a by-product of the disintegration of Palestinian Arab society. The book thoroughly investigates the role of the Great Powers—Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union—in shaping the conflict and its tentative termination in 1949. Morris looks both at high politics and general staff decision-making processes and at the nitty-gritty of combat in the successive battles that resulted in the emergence of the State of Israel and the humiliation of the Arab world, a humiliation that underlies the continued Arab antagonism toward Israel.
