Angry Arab's Blog Blocked in Syria

Lebanese Dr As'ad Abu Khalil, who lives in the US, writes: “A reader in Damascus tells me that my website is still blocked there. Maybe this will lift the ban: Down with the Syrian regime.”


  • It’s not “his blog” that’s blocked in Syria, but the domain “blogspot’ is, hence all of the blogs are hosted on this domain is blocked, that’s why we find most syrian bloggers living in syria blogging from wordpress instead.

  • So unfortunate! :(

    Syrians (and I) should use a “mask” for their blogs.

    Thanks Google charges just $10 for a domain name.
