Cluelessness of some Western reporters in the Middle East

It just occurred to me: there have been many profiles of individuals and artists in Lebanon and the Middle East region but I am yet to read one thing in the Western press about the cult following of Ziad Rahbani.  I don't recall reading anything about him in the Western press although his reputation and standing in Lebanon and Syria and beyond is uniquely phenomenal.  No one has that kind of cult following among the younger generations.
