We Are All Fouads


  • I don’t understand the Saudi government’s complete silence on the issue; he has been detained for 90 days and hasn’t yet been released or charged. Are they trying to make Fouad’s case a lesson for other bloggers or anybody who has a voice in their kingdom?

    This is shameful!

  • NINETY! NINETY! Not NINTY. Fix it I beg you. Fix it then delete this comment if you like.

    Oh man I need need NEED to get over my anal tendencies.

    Look just fix it ok? I need to be able to sleep at night.

  • Hal: oh my God…I sat down after one of the longest and most exhausting, dehydrating, frustrating days that one can only experience in Amman, with a zillion things on my mind and a “to-do list” as long as the nile river…

    And please know that this comes from an extremely humble fan – I can’t help my OCD I really can’t.

  • I was going to mention that, but then my internet slowed down to nothing and I knew Hal come to your rescue.

    I also hope you have a better day tomorrow, and your list shortens to the length of the Jordan River. And a few long awaited blessings poured out, as well.
