Syrian bloggers unite again

February 28th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

We’ve all got different views. And we don’t hesitate in battling it out in the comments section of eachother’s blogs, and by challenging eachother in sharp-tongued blog posts.

But for the third time in a year, Syria’s bloggers have united to put their names to a joint post challenging Egypt’s decision to jail a blogger who insulted the president.

In February last year, we complained at rioters who damaged foreign embassies in Damascus during the cartoon protests. And then in July we condemned Israel’s war on Lebanon.

Before that, there were barely enough bloggers in Syria to mount such a campaign.

Syria’s blogosphere is growing in size – and power.
