The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

It will be blogged.

The Weekly Standard has a fascinating article on the blogging revolution in Saudi Arabia. One of the sites they mention is an aggregator of Saudi Blogs called what else? Saudi Blogs.

It seems that as usual in that region of the world women are taking the lead in the realm of social change.

Truly amazing. It may be that just as FAXes and Xerox machines brought down the USSR, the communications revolution may also bring a transformation to the heart of Islam.

Lets hope the Arabs don't shut down local access to the internet.
The schools are in real need of reform also.
The children are taught at an early age to hate Israel, and Jews are typcally de-humanized on T.V..
