To the barricades, bloggers (again)

: Middle-Eastern regimes are discovering blogs… and jailing bloggers. Two are in jail in Iran (and one is in exile). Now a Bahraini blogger has been arrested for what he wrote on his blog. His “crimes:”

1. Defaming the royalty

2. Inciting hatred towards the regime

3. Publishing news to destabilize security (“تزعزع الأمن”)

4. Violating the Press Laws

5. Violating the Communication Laws

Much more on the case here. The arrested blogger’s site is here.
