The Daily Hookah is the personal website of award winning columnist, writer, author and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania.

The website features Hanania’s columns, news, features and also other posts that may be of interest.

Hanania covers two general topics.

The first is the Middle East. A long time peace activist fighting for justice for Palestinians AND Israelis, and an advocate for the Two-State Solution with security and freedom for both states and people, Hanania writes about the Middle East, the Palestinians, Israel and US peace efforts. Many of his columns are published at The Arab News in Saudi Arabia and on his Arab Writers Group website TheArabDailyNews.com.

The second is Hanania’s base, Chicago, midwest American and U.S. politics. Hanania writes for several newspapers in the Chicago area and across the country on a wide range of topics that include politics, government, and also slice-of-lice features that include topics on Baby Boomers, humor and family-hood.

You can find links to his published books, and also his free online books and writings.

The Daily Hookah also publishes Hanania’s audio and occasionally video podcasts that are available on iTunes and at Podbean.com.
