Waq al-Waq

Waq al-Waq. I don’t know what that means. And the subtitile is not very helpful for me: „Those of you who are familiar with the story cycle of Sayf bin Dhi Yazan, or the work of Muhammad Mahmud al-Zubayri or even, and I’m reaching here, Yaqut al-Hamawi’s Mu’ajim al-Buldan will understand.“

But the author has a new column out „about the dangers of comparing Yemen to Afghanistan/Somalia“. And he wished it were longer and more pithy. Maybe this is a general problem as that is all information of this post. But I don’t want to blame the author, maybe there will be more information if the reader would follow the given link to the named new column. And other websites are more close-mouthed when hinting to external links.
The only thing I am observing is that the comparison of Afghanistan and Somalia seems to have taken place already and they were evaluated being equal to a far degree. Obviously they have not taken piracy into account in this comparison.
