What is Good Enough for Cairo Is Good Enough for Brooklyn

The Internet in bringing down corrupt regimes. In Tunisia, the long-suffering population was further outraged when they read Wikileaks’ revelations about the ostentatious opulence of the ruling class. In Cairo, Facebook and the blogs finally brought discontent to the surface. Particularly damaging were the revelations that Hosni Mubarak’s personal wealth is estimated to be forty billion dollars, making him one of the richest men in the world. Ordinary Egyptians knew he did not earn it honestly.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just announced a thirty million dollar US initiative to promote internet technologies and services that help oppressed populations get around censorship and persecution. Maybe we can get some of the money to Brooklyn and other haredi communities.
