New Roundups

I've been a bit remiss in keeping up with the news this week, so here's a quick recap of some of the goings on:

Egypt is cracking down even more on the media and the Muslim Brotherhood.  And again, the US isn't saying anything about it.

A small TV station in Kuwait was attacked by a mob, for making fun of the ruling family.

Rachel Corrie's family finally got their day in court, in Israel.  The driver of the bulldozer that killed Rachel testified behind a screen.

Bahrain is cracking down on Shi'ites, ahead of elections there.  Bahrain has a large Shi'ite population, and is worried about Iran gaining a foothold.

Blogger Ali Abdulemam is still in jail in Bahrain.  I'm not sure if he is Shi'ite or if he was just arrested for daring to speak his own mind.
