Arab World Newspapers at the Library of Congress

Arabic Newspapers Published in the Diaspora

Arab communities in the diaspora have been active in publishing their own newspapers and journals all over the world. Although not all these newspapers are published primarily in Arabic, they all deal with the news of the Arab communities in those countries, as well as the Arab World as a whole, each from its own perspective. While some countries list Arabic as a national language, it remains a secondary language in their press--this may include some members of the Arab League. These newspapers, along with any newspapers which contain sections in the Arabic language, are also listed under the following category.

Thus, all the newspaper titles listed here, if not published entirely in Arabic, either have sections in the Arabic language or otherwise reflect the news and views of the Arab community residing in those various countries.

Most of the newspapers listed in this section may be searched in the Library of Congress Online Catalog.

Many Arabic newspapers published by the Arab community in the diaspora are born-digital or are otherwise unobtainable except through their websites. In these cases, only the newspapers that provide free access to their articles have been added to the list. The addresses for these websites are added under the corresponding titles.
