Amina Abdullah should have your attention.

Just over a week ago Syrian Security forces tried to arrest her for speaking her mind on her blog.

She is Syrian, a women, and gay and brave, very brave.

Syria in case you were unaware is the country where hundreds of intellectuals are forbidden to travel, 150,000 have gone into exile and 17,000 have either disappeared or been imprisoned for expressing their opinion.

It is ruled by an oppressive torturing regime which has been described as Brutal but also Stupid.

Successful Regime change could also prove to be a powerful challenge to Hizbullah, which receives most of it’s arms through Syria;  yet the Obama government is silent.

Women both individually and collectively are playing an increasing and vital role in the Arab Spring. More Power to Them.
