Four more shot in Saudi Arabia
This is a very significant, and potentially dangerous, development. This too comes with a silver lining, though. It's that finally, the status quo in the Arab states is being challenged. Whether the opposition takes the form of liberalism or fundamentalism, as long as there is an opposition, status quo is rendered unmaintainable.
Such violence in a Saudi city is, to my knowledge, unheard of. May be, this will push the establishment towards a more liberalized system, at least as a reactionary measure.
