Description

Presentation about Global Voices

 

BLOGGING: More than teenage talk.

“Baghdad blogger” Salam Pax

 

“ I try to dispel the image that Muslims and Arabs suffer from - mostly by our own doing I have to say - in the rest of the world. I am no missionary and don’t want to be. I run several internet websites that are geared to do just that, create a better understanding that we’re not all nuts hell-bent on world destruction.” Text
