Report
BACK
 

It is a mystery: how do you land in the Middle East and leave with a story in your notebook. How do you choose the people you need to talk to, and why their little story is relevant. I really understood the horror of ISIS by listening to two women explaining how in Raqqa, women police bite to death women who do not properly wear the veil. Very often, truth comes from people who do not have a voice, who don´t exist. I never met a president, a sheikh or a general speaking honestly about what is really going on in a place in conflict. But I did find an illiterate kid, in a frontline ghetto of Northern Lebanon who told me: "This is not about religion. It´s about politics".
