Al Jazeera’s Wadah Khanfar: A historic moment in the Arab world
As a democratic revolution led by tech-empowered young people sweeps the Arab world, Wadah Khanfar, the head of Al Jazeera, shares a profoundly optimistic view of what’s happening in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and beyond – at this powerful moment when people realized they could step out of their houses and ask for change.
“I am here to tell you that the future that we were dreaming for [in the Middle East] has eventually arrived,” Khanfar told the audience at the Technology Entertainment and Design conference (TED), speaking about the recent popular uprisings that have toppled long-standing governments.
“A new generation, well-educated, connected, inspired by universal values and a global understanding has created a new reality for us,” he said.
