On December 11, one of the Arab world’s top bloggers was arrested by the Saudi Interior Ministry. Fouad Al-Farhan, age 32, is the godfather of Saudi blogging. He was among the first Saudis to blog under his real name and has been an outspoken voice for nonviolent reform.
thanks Sexy Munro for bringing this to my attention. This isnt an Arab issue or a Saudi issue, its about being able to speak your mind and share your thoughts, without the threat of being beheaded by a dull blade
Awesome, thanks Jenny! Yes, struck a serious chord with me too. It doesnt take very much for people to start living in fear a staying quiet…which is really scary.
