A year after the Egyptian uprising began, I take a look with this Orange County Weekly cover story at how the Arab Spring has swept through OC at a time when Arab-Americans are seeking to officially designate ‘Little Arabia‘ in Anaheim. The subtitle asks, “Can one of the country’s largest Middle Eastern neighborhoods patch up its rivalries to become OC’s next famous ethnic enclave?” See what local property owners, politicians, restaurant chefsand a younger generation of activists have to say.

The story is online and on newsstands now. For those of you outside the Weekly’s OC/LBC distribution area, click the following link and share your thoughts there:
