  • I admire the great courage and persistence of Nora Younis in bringing us this report. Those of us who live in Police States should take heart from her example.
    Those of you who live in less repressive nations might reflect on the great gap between reality and what the mass media disclose.
    There is a great need for bloggers to write about conditions close to home. No outside person can grasp what is going on there.
