‘I Wanna Be Like Osama’

the MusicalThere are a number of reasons why Cafebabel.com is exciting. One of them is that the community of writers that contribute to the current affairs magazine are not afraid of controversy. They look at events and issues that are being played out on the various political, social, economic and cultural theaters across Europe and dissect, analyze and discuss them without fear or favour.

An example of this is Carles Matamoros and Nabeelah Shabbir’s report on Zoe Samuel’s, Jihad: the Musical which caused a storm in the European media during its three-week run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In their review, Matamoros and Shabbir discuss the controversy that surrounded the musical, it’s general reception as well as their own reactions to the musical.

Matamoros and Shabbir’s article is well worth reading.
