Iraqi Bloggers Mohammed and Omar Visit Palo Alto
Mohammed and Omar, two of the three brothers of the Iraq the Model blog were at an (invitation-only) Spirit of America event in Palo Alto on Tuesday. I wish I could have attended, but had to read about it on Down the Avenue.
Whatever your position on U.S. involvement in Iraq, if you believe in the power of free speech, you have to be excited about what these guys and the other Iraqi Bloggers are doing. Spirit of America is funding an Arabic Blogging Tool that promises to make blogging much more accessible throughout the Arabic-speaking world. Let's hope that Arabic bloggers will do their part to bring freedom of speech, peace, safety, and prosperity to the region.
