Which event in the Middle East & North Africa region had the biggest impact in 2012?

Dear Pita-consumers:

We know that there are many more events that should be mentioned…please feel free to add your thoughts.  The only catch is that it must rhyme :)!  Our new year’s resolution is to promote political and social satire in the pita-consuming region because we believe the freedom to develop political satire signifies a healthy level of political expression and criticism within that society…

  • PITAPOLICY recommends reading The Invisible Arab by Marwan Bishara
  • PITAPOLICY’s new year’s resolution is to improve sense of humor.
  • 2013 will be better, #HappyNewYear !!!
