I was only ten years old when MBC began broadcasting via satellite from London in 1991. To me, that was a moment in history equivalent to the 1984 launch of the Apple Mac computer. It changed everything – not just for me but for a whole generation who was suffering from the mind-numbing effect of Arab state-owned media outlets.
It was through MBC that Arabs worldwide rallied together to support causes that unified them. From standing up to Israeli aggression in Palestine and Lebanon to creating and cheering pan-Arab moments.Faisal J. Abbas
