He is a doctor, no a physicist, no he is Falafel, the super Syrian reporter who has access to the most important people in the world at a one-hour notice. He is the James Bond of reporters, efficient, with a killer instinct to reveal the most important secrets of our times.
He dares to ask any questions to provoke the most astute leaders with his inquisitive mind. No one escapes his challenging inquiries or his laser-like tendencies to get to the truth.
Leaders who talk to him are compelled to think they are talking to their priests at their local church confessionals.
So, when you read a Falafel satire story, you are reading history in the making because he can peer into someone’s soul to reveal their real motives like no other reporter.
Falafel was born in the city of Aleppo, Syria to a family of 14 children. His father Hannah was a storyteller that roamed the narrow streets of Aleppo, and for 5 Piastres, Hannah would tell you the most amazing stories.
His mother was a singer who had her own show in one of the most fashionable dance halls of Aleppo.
He graduated from the University of Aleppo where he majored in journalism. At one point, he built a real Falafel stand outside the university doors that paid for his education, thus his name.
No one really knows his real name, and no one dares to ask him. Do so at your own peril because his pen is faster than your tongue, faster than your mind.
Even his own parents forgot his name. None dares to ask him either.
So, anytime you read one of TFS interview Blogs starring the indomitable Falafel, know this:
You can take his satire stories to the bank.
