Sorry we have no space - Joseph Wakim

Joseph Wakim always suspected that something sinister was growing under the foliage of the ‘Arab Spring’. He warned that Arab Christian minorities could become an endangered species,

but most newspapers responded with ‘Sorry we have no space.’

Apart from the Arab revolutions, his narrative non-fictiondelves into the evolution of Arabphobia such as the photographed graffiti on the provocative front cover.

The book seeks to reclaim the Arab narrative of the silent majority who have been drowned out by the ‘shock horror’ headlines that have been attracted by a noisy minority.

As a Christian Arab, and a minority within a minority, Wakim offers searing insights into the

most volatile hot spots on the planet and their instant impact in Australia.

His witty dialogues and lyrical narrative take readers on a personal journey which constantly

questions public assumptions.

This timely New Release would appeal to anyone interested in current affairs, media, Middle

East, inter-faith, multiculturalism and advocacy.

‘Sorry we have no space’ was launched in Sydney on 21 October by Deputy Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas, and in Melbourne on 29 October by former Deputy Prime

Minister Tim Fischer. It is distributed in Australia, USA and UK.

This inspirational story of how and why this ‘average joe’ became a self-made columnist and

a ‘go to’ voice for the voiceless smashes every Arab stereotype.


JOSEPH WAKIM OAM is a multi-award winning writer who has had over 500 opinion pieces published for over 20 years in all major Australian newspapers. He was founder of the Australian Arabic Council and former Multicultural Affairs Commissioner. He produced a TV documentary Zero to Zenith: Arabic Contributions Down Under.
