Today in the Arab World

The Egyptian military have appointed a populist politician as Prime Minister. This is a great step towards securing a democratic system, as there were some legitimate concerns that the interim military government might have simply seized power for themselves.

The International Criminal Court has deemed the massacres in Libya worthy of being investigated as crimes against humanity. Despite his declarations that no peaceful protesters were killed,  Gaddafi, his family, and high level officials will all be on the hook for the thousands of deceased dissenters.

Meanwhile, fresh demonstrations continue to demand change in Algeria, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, Iran, Yemen, and Morocco. As well, Saudi Arabia seem poised for protest.

Keep pressing on, freedom fighters. Your courage is helping create a more just world.
