The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You a Happy Birthday, Neil MacFarquhar’s new book of reportage on the Middle East, is not to be missed.The viewpoint is somewhat unexpected; MacFarquhar is an Arabic speaking American who grew up in Libya and spent over 13 years as a Middle East correspondent.
