About us


The Official Newspaper Of The Lebanese And The Arab Americans In The United States.

What began as a young person’s desire to help the Lebanese and the Arab Americans transform the quality of their lives helped Mr. Michael Absi starting the Beirut Times newspaper in 1985, a bi-lingual Arabic and English newspaper published in Los Angeles.

Today, it is the only bilingual English and Arabic newspaper that is published daily in the United States. It caters to the unique needs of Arab Americans while highlighting equality for Americans from all Arab countries. The paper now covers the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and the Middle East.

The Beirut Times has something for everyone… So whether you are looking for business, cultural, social and political and community news and articles, we provide all the information you will need to know the Lebanese and the Arab-American communities better.

We have tried to stay true to our values and to deliver incomparable news and services for our community readers, and clients.

At the Beirut Times, our love, and care for the community drives who we are and what we do.

Why Beirut Times?

The Beirut Times is a picture of everyday life in its community. It deals with happenings and personalities that are crowded out of its larger counterpart, and thus has a much more intimate relationship with its readers than the more impersonal mass media. It is a family member, and both its news and advertising are much closer to its readers. Generally, it is read in a more leisurely manner so that its life is not one day, but three or four.

As an alternative to the American news media, the local, national and international news is reported in the Beirut Times news section. Extensive news analysis is actually written without distortion or special influence of any kind. Foreign correspondents, posted in vital news centers in the Arab world and Europe, transmit on the scene coverage with specific details, not available through the general media. Major developing news stories are chronicled with in-depth investigative reporting, that tells the whole story instead of throwing abrupt facts at the reader.

Foreign correspondents for the Beirut Times cover news and information's from, Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen and the League of Arab States

Therefore, unlike many other newspapers, there is an intimate relationship between the paper and its Arab American readers, including other ethnic groups, such as Armenians, who have emigrated from various Arab countries in the Middle East. The paper is now recognized as a powerful force in promoting peace through communication.

We thank you for joining us on this awesome journey and hope that you will continue to be a part of the Beirut Times family.
