Arabic Blogging

The Powerline guys report on the Friends of Democracy project "that will create and host an Arabic blogging tool to enable other Iraqi (and ultimately other Arab) blogs to spring up and be heard. The idea is that any Iraqi who declares himself of herself to be pro-democracy can have a blog and be connected to other pro-democracy bloggers. As Mohammed put it, 'I'm enjoying my freedom and I want others to enjoy theirs too.' I wish that every American could have heard Mohammed's words, or even just seen the joy on Omar's face as he showed off the new blogging tool to guests."

Wonderful. Omar and Mohammed blog at Iraq the Model. Check it out.
