Back to Lebanon
Since the so-called ‘Arab’s Spring’ began in 2011, and following his resignation from Orient TV, he has decided not to be involved in Arabic Media unless if he will be hosted as an expert in Middle Eastern, Russians, and International Affairs.
In May 2013, he returned back to Lebanon after he spent 32 years of his professional life as an immigrant.
In August 2013, he published his first book under the title: ‘Asnam Sahibat Al Jalala’ (The Idols of Her Majesty).
In February 2015, he published his first poetry book under the title: ‘Marabe’e Ishk’ (Gardens of Love).
In November 2015, he published his favorite book under the title: ‘Al Putinya’ (The Putinism).
Between May 2015 and June 2018, he wrote more than 600 Political Analysis, most of them on Russian Affairs, for ‘Mon Liban’, ‘Lebanon 24’, and ‘Eurabia’ News Websites.
In June 2019, he established ‘Salamouna Post’ website in Beirut, aiming to encourage people talking in Arabic to take ‘Salam’ as choice and target under the slogan: ‘In Peace We Trust’, and he had recently established ‘J.D. News’ in English hoping to achieve the same goal.
