Pretty objective but gets some details wrong.
This is a good podcast for sure and worth listening to. However, I couldn’t get passed messing up some facts specifically revolving around Syria. Here’s just a few. Al-Qassam was Syrian freedom fighter who went to fight in Palestine he wasn’t a Palestinian freedom fighter. Second, what happened in Iskanderun (aka Alexandretta) wasn’t merely a disputed referendum but Turkey moved tens of thousands of Turks in to vote right before the election to secure the result. That’s a pretty key fact to miss. Also, while Syria initially joined the Lebanese civil war on the side of the Maronite Christians, they ditched them pretty much as soon as they joined and favored supporting the Lebanese National Resistance Front (LNRF or JAMMOUL for the Arabic acronym) against the zionist invasion and the maronites they initially sided with. Lastly, I found some of the passive sectarian language revolving around Syria a little concerning. Last thing we need right now. I really do enjoy the podcast but couldn’t in good faith not point these details out. Keep up the good work.

Stumbled upon this podcast during Ramadan as I was looking for a new way to add knowledge. Almost through the first season so far and think it is a strong podcast. Looking forward to more. Muttaqi comes off as a real one and I enjoy the personality.

My new interest in history and a sudden desire to learn more about a religion I knew nothing about led me to your podcast. The...Read full review »
