  1. a correction should be made in your article.

    you state latter when you mean former

    btw, care to name the arab nation that allows free speech of any kind?

    1. Let’s see, in that first sentence we have, in this order:
      1) blogging
      2) political speech
      3) the Israeli-Arab conflict
      So according to you Richard meant the former (instead of the latter) “suppresses the free exchange of ideas”.
      Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

      Which Arab state allows free speech of any kind? All of them, I suppose.

    2. In answer to your questions which Arab nations allow free speech of ANY kind:


      Freedom House rates the first three as “partly free”, although I’d say Lebanon has claims to more than that. It has free and fair elections, a vibrant press and a highly educated urban middle class.
