This is a real joke seriously what is going in Syria currently , that makes me thank God thousand times that I live in Egypt despite all what the regime does from fighting the naughty bloggers who are exposing its scandals national and world wide
As you may have known in the last two weeks the Syrian regime has blocked several web services and hundreds of Websites and blogs
The most famous web services that were blocked in Syria are the following :
- Google earth "May be for security reasons , but Israel too complained and yet it did not block nor Google changed the maps and surely the Americans and Israelis won't depend upon Google earth , it is blocked so the people will not know where are the palaces and mansions of Al-Assad dynasty !! "
The Websites and blogs that are blocked currently are of course for the opposition and forums ,lately the Kurdish and PK supporting Websites joined them "For the Turkish friends of course"
Today I found out that another two Web services are blocked recently are there "
Now why on earth they block Amazon.com !!?? I mean what is the harm from a website that sells books and other stuff online ?? Because it contains books that are considered against the regime !!
Ok a smart question : How many Syrians buy from the Amazon inside Syria ??
I do not want to hint that the Syrians more and more are heading towards wordpress self hosting despite the fact that some web hosting companies do not welcome to hosts Syrian or Iranian Websites . Of course not to mention the Typepad blogging services . They are very smart in the Syrian intelligence as it is the party that follows the Internet , they know very well that inside Syria most Syrians go to blogger.com due to the fact it is free and much easier where as Typepad is used mostly by Syrians who live abroad , not to mention that the Syrian Envoy to the States got a blog there , oh yes but to my surprise I speak more about the politics of his country in my blog more him in his blog , his blog is all about Syrian painters and his travel with his family around the globe !!!
I wonder what website they would block next in Syria ??
by the way I won't post petitions and stuff because they do not care about them
Ah I know what they will block next , the petition sites !!!
For their eyes only to the Syrian intelligence service men who watch the net here is my favourite book in Amazon ;P
