In this weeks episode of The New Arab Voice, we start with a discussion about the recent revelations of Iranian plots to kidnap an American journalist and the ongoing protests happening in Khuzestan province. 
Then, we explore Lebanon's economic nightmare and ask how the country ended up in such a state and what the future holds for the country. 
And finally, we remember British-Libyan artist, calligrapher, activist, and writer, Ali Omar Ermes, who passed away last week.
