Saudi blogger Saudi Jeans comments on blocked websites in Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi has allways blocked sites since the internet came to the country in 1996. Can anyone remember the Mattawa shooting at satelite dish’s in Riyadh. Information is power and they don’t want us to have any of that. I got alot of information from a new book called “Paramedic to the Prince” by an American paramedic that woprked for King Abdullah. Really says alot of things I did not know about Saudi. Read it and lets have a debate on it.
