For the Third Successive Year, Egyptian blog wins Deutsche Welle's Best of the Blogs award

Last Year, Alaa Abdel Fattah 's blog won Reporters Without Borders Special Award, which has become an integral part of the Best of the Blogs Awards (BOBS). R of Beyond Normal is the winner of Best Arabic blog for 2004.

This year best Arabic blog award went to Egyptian blogger Jar El Kamar. The Deutsche Welle's Best of the Blogs (BOBS) is an annual competition that picks blogs from all over the world in different languages.

There is no doubt that Egyptian bloggers made impressive strides in improving the cause of freedom of speech and expression after long decades of state-controlled media. The blogosphere provided a window for free people from different streams to express themselves and here they are winning.

Congratulations to Jar Al Kamar... Go Egyptian Blogosphere into more success and freedom!

I was not in the blogosphere yet, thanks for the correction.

I hope the Egyptian blogosphere gets some moderate voices not neocon sock puppets who merely repeat propaganda masquerading as "freedom."
