Most of Saudi bloggers, especially those who write in English, criticize their own people and government very harshly. There is no doubt some of their criticism is correct and realistic, and it plays a major role in the reforming our society. However, such criticism reaches the whole world, in the absence of what could give a good image about our country, because we don’t have any website to talk about the good aspects of the Kingdom. I get embarrassed when a foreigner asks me for info and photos on Saudi Arabia; where can I find anything good to give him? Do you support the idea of such a website? Or is it just that there is not anything good about our country?
There is, of course, some good things about our country. And when I find these good things, I write about them. The difference is: bad things get in people’s nerves. I know it is not easy for anyone to criticize one’s self, but in the end of the day, someone has to do it. How about you? What do you think?
