Do we blog to criticize the government?

Osama was interviewed by Al-Jazeera and it was introduced as if he represent the majority of bloggers in the Arab world and specially Jordan.

He claims that we face many illegal difficulties and we receive many threats because authorities scared from us and that because we can unveil corruption, he also mentioned that bloggers are more powerful than journalists because we don't have any law that regulate our activities or limit our freedom but he forgot that we don't a law that can protect us unlike journalists.

4:15 The last question was whether we have demands especially when it comes to having entities that can provide some legal protection for our activities and his answer was; We don't have any, if we are going to demand then we are going to ask the government while our goal as bloggers is to criticize the authority and the government.

Personally, I cannot agree on that goal even though I do criticize whenever I have enough information from trusted sources about an issue that bother me; blogging has emerged from covering war news into a platform that enabled us to share and spread experience regardless of the kind. Maybe Al-Jazeera should start using the term online-activists instead of referring to anyone who stand against his government as a blogger, that only one kid.

Rules of war (in a nutshell) Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
