The Netizen Report: Inaugural Edition – Global Voices Advocacy

Arab Sources: Bishara on Palestine’s UN bid
A little bit over-hyped description of my -probably- favorite Arab intellectual, Azmi Bishara. An interview of him worth reading indeed. Somehow he is an unintended consequence, a happy one, of Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians. He was expelled from Israel and banned from returning to his land and ended living and working as a scholar in Doha, Qatar, from where he has been commenting on the Arab revolutions from day one. Why is this guy not on Twitter?
UPDATE: Actually he is on Twitter (reportedly): @AzmiBishara (thank you Rachid)
Johann Hari: A personal apology – Johann Hari, Commentators – The Independent
One of The Independent’s leading columnists admits to plagiarism and wrongful editing of rivals’ Wikipedia pages. Actually I found it funny and instructive at the same time.
