On Arab blogging

"The one political topic that did cut across all the various clusters in the Arabic blogging world, however, was the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, in particular the situation in Gaza." (Thanks Muna)

Maybe this could serve as an answer to the guy in today's meeting who challenged the speaker who stated: "the Palestinian issue is still the only issue that can bring people out in the streets simultaneously in Beirut, Cairo and Barbes"

But note how the BBC places Iran among the Arab countries.

Oh and in the same article, this gem too my quote of the day:

Jihadists aren't blogging

Prof Daniel Brumberg, Georgetown University
