Saudi Arabia: Eve's blog blocked

Saudi ISP have blocked SaudiEve's blog, and it is said that other blogs will follow.

At this point, it is unclear why exactly SaudiEve has been targeted, as she is neither the most outspoken nor the most political of the Saudi bloggers, as she mostly blogs about personal issues and not Saudi Arabia, and has never written about the Saudi government. Some bloggers surmise that her inclusion of a Christian and a Jewish travel prayer (together with a Muslim one) in her last post before a long journey was used as the excuse to request her blog being banned in Saudi Arabia, raf* said.

Many bloggers have voiced their concern and have called for activism.
