    Profile

    Tony Karon is a New York-based South African journalist, currently a senior editor for the online edition of TIME magazine, where he has worked since 1997. Besides his editing duties, he writes regular analytical commentary on the Middle East and the wider 'arc of instability' at TIME.com and also for The National in Abu Dhabi, and more occasionally for Haaretz in Israel, the Sunday Times in South Africa and other outlets. He also maintains his own commentary site, Rootless Cosmopolitan. He has also done extensive TV punditry on CNN, MSNBC and Press TV (Iran).

    Born and raised in Cape Town, he graduated from the University of Cape Town with a BA (Honours) degree in 1982, worked in anti-apartheid activist media in South Africa, and later for the Mail & Guardian Weekly and the Cape Times. Arriving in New York late in 1993, he worked variously for such magazines as Spin and George, as well as four Britain's Channel Four TV network -- and even briefly at Fox News. He is currently at work on a book project on nationalism and Jewish identity.
