Los Angeles Times is looking for a Middle East correspondent: job description--kid you not

"The Los Angeles Times is looking for a seasoned reporter to cover the Middle East.
This correspondent will anchor our coverage of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Syria, as well as monitoring the turbulent progress of “democracy” in Egypt, North Africa and the Gulf. But more than that, we are looking for an accomplished writer who is capable of plunging into these ancient and dazzling cultures, capturing their mesmerizing variety, deep intellectual history, turbulent social upheaval and — from ISIS insurgents to entrenched dictators — their capability for brutish violence."  Who wrote this?  Raphael Patai?
