The truth will set you free

"In 40 years of writing about the Middle East, I have never seen anything like what is happening in Tahrir Square. In a region where the truth and truth-tellers have so long been smothered under the crushing weight of oil, autocracy and religious obscurantism, suddenly the Arab world has a truly free space — a space that Egyptians themselves, not a foreign army, have liberated — and the truth is now gushing out of here like a torrent from a broken hydrant." --Thomas Friedman

Thomas Friedman: He attended Hebrew school five days a week until his Bar Mitzvah,[1] then St. Louis Park High School where he wrote articles for his school's newspaper.[2] He became enamored of Israel after a visit there in December 1968, and he spent all three of his high school summers living on Kibbutz Hahotrim, near Haifa.[3] He has characterized his high school years as "one big celebration of Israel's victory in the Six-Day War."[3]
