I live in Germany, so I don't see the front pages of US papers - but surely Freedom House's annual survey of global freedom was today's big headline story, right?
The people of the Arab Middle East experienced a modest but potentially significant increase in political rights and civil liberties in 2005, Freedom House announced in a major survey of global freedom released today.But no doubt you knew this already.
According to Thomas O. Melia, acting executive director of Freedom House, "The modest but heartening advances in the Arab Middle East result from activism by citizen groups and reforms by governments in about equal measures. This emerging trend reminds us that men and women in this region share the universal desire to live in free societies."
By the way, the US is rated as "free" - some of you may not have known that.
