Kharabeesh is a collective network founded in 2008 by a small group of bloggers in Jordan. The idea behind the initiative was to create a channel for Arabic content in social Internet media. The focus was from the beginning on political content and the Internet to address critical issues that were impossible to publish in traditional media. The collective became widely known with their satirical cartoons mocking Arab dictators in the beginning of the Arab revolutions in early 2011.
