Of atheism in Muslim lands

De l’athéisme en terres d’islam - Idées - France Culture

I heartily recommend this excellent hour-long radio show (in French) on atheism in Arab countries and the link between the uprisings and demands for greater individual rights in recent years, notably in the Maghreb. A really good show and its page has good references, too.
