Iyad el-Baghdadi

Iyad el-Baghdadi is a Palestinian writer based in the United Arab Emirates who rose to prominence following his diligent reporting of the Arab Spring uprisings and their aftermath. His Twitter account has consistently been ranked as one of the most important social media accounts in the Middle East. El-Baghdadi is known for his satirical work, “The Arab Tyrant’s Manual,” which humorously highlights how embattled leaders in the Middle East and North Africa responded to the 2011 uprisings. He is currently working on “The Arab Spring Manifesto,” a project that will provide a detailed account of his vision for an Islamic libertarianism.
