The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information today, strongly rejected the Ministry of Culture and Information decision on January 1st , 2011 to approve the new executive regulation of electronic publishing, which contained 20 articles dealing with electronic publishing with the same restrictive manner in dealing with newspapers and publications in the Saudi system for publishing and publications.
The regulation contains items to organize all types of electronic publishing including blogs, forums and short messaging . Internet users have succeeded in creating forums to express their views more freely than in paper publications, with less control imposed by the authorities. This regulation came to limit freedom of of opinion and expression on the Internet. Article # 7 stipulates a permit for electronic publication to be granted by the Ministry of Information!

The Bedouin king of doom really scare of late. Their highly guard flock whose happens to educated/travel oversea (and broader their thinking from the "typical cultural enforced veil" and many silly rule which block their mind), little by little has come to their senses. It begun to brush their subconscious about the system put in place before their very eyes, on how notorious absurd it was even to do a simple menial task back home. This is getting more apparent nowadays. And when the young law academician by the name Mohammed Abdulkarim publish the on line regarding possibility of a power struggle inside the ruling family, then it all hell break loose in Riyadh so to speak!
Actually, this is no news nor anything new really for those in the know but in this land, where almost everything been (conveniently) put as taboos then it was like an atomic bomb blast above the holly land where the unholy king, the court of Al Saud and their cohort rule and plunder the state coffer. While this saddos live extravagant in their court and spend lavishly oversea, their so call subjects live in a such conditions unthinkable for such rich country, corruptions, patronage, lack of employments and the old womenfolk are begging in the street etc. Perhaps it gonna do a big shock if this people knew about the price tag of the gift that the King of Spade gave Obama( as well as to his family) not so long ago. A whooping hundred thousand petrol Dollar!
To summed it short, the court of Bedouins are not really dumb as dumbbell at least not their fat asses advisors for sure, and the wind that brew from Tunisia since late last year surely scare the shit out of 'em. Granted they are not dumb but far from been wise really. Therefore they choose to block the access by mean of restricting access to the new media, after all they seam to do it well on the old media as the newspapers are nothing but dead all dead in donkey's years.
Perhaps they got the idea from "a bunch of kids" who just graduate from the western varsity. These people has no idea of how the Internet really work! They are doom to fail and their moved will cost 'em more them to save their asses. Mark my work.
And the best part is, now the infamous Imelda Marcos of the Arabia are safely in their land together with tons of gold, robbed(as all and decades of looting and blood sucking is not enough still) from the central bank shortly before feeing the country (according to the French intelligence source). This former Tunisia’s Madame La Présidente really make the Grace Mugabe look a slightly modest but then in the eyes of Kingdom of Bedouins, this is nothing..
