`Adil Al-Batal is dead

My late brother, Midhat, introduced me to him.  Midhat did not like that I was paying full prices for my cassettes and CDs so he introduced me to him in the late 1990s.  He had a very small store in a street off Hamra street.  He also liked to discuss politics with me but I was always rushing from one place to another.  He was always hospitable inviting me to sit and talk more politics.  I saw today on Christopher Stone's FB page that he died.  He also helped Chris in his dissertation research.  This is his picture in his tiny shop.
