Getting the Word Out

One of the biggest problems in the Middle East is the lack of a free press. Bloggers have tried to circumvent this problem by using the internet, which in some cases has led to their arrest and persecution.

A new blog called cyberdissident.org has been launched by the Adelson Institute for Strategic Studies to help these bloggers. By translating their posts into English and other European languages this blog will help to spread the word, in addition to encouraging those in the west to work to support them.

    Thanks – this is a great find, but it makes for some gruesome reading.

    I wish someone would help me translate into good Hebrew. I can speak it, but my writing is slow, tortuous and so full of mistakes.
