I will be traveling and not posting much for the next few days. I was going to write something about the new report on corruption by Kifaya (basically that I think it's a great, concrete move by the movement that should hush critics who say it's not accomplishing anything) but don't have time, so read Abu Aardvark's post which mentions it, further discusses the press situation, and meanders through the moral maze of Arab democracy promotion. But hopefully Hossam will keep you informed in the next few days too. And if anyone has the text of the report in an electronic format, the email address is issandr - at - arabist.net. I quickly checked the Kifaya site but they had some kind of technical error.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
