Saudi arabia: bypassing the censorship

Allegedly, in the author’s monarchy hackers, her money earn her money by helping others to trick the Internet filters

The internet is teeming not only from stories, but is always the subject of those that are sometimes difficult to review. If the stories still play in Arab Marchenlangers, which are currently partly too fearfully considered brutstants of terrorists, a checkout is hardly possible at least from the distance, but maybe a good example of how "True-seeming" can spread. At a time in which in view of the propaganda from all sides and the awareness of the defective information of the media, once again hermeneous to read between the lines, such stories that could be true are at least part of the day’s news.

The story had her start in the English-speaking Arab News. Then she was picked up by BBC and contested message compliant, such as a good-hoax, which is further worn, what a good friend told or communicated a confidential source.. Arab news reports on the 3. November that a reporter of the Arab newspaper EQTISADIAH once as a customer in "Computer centers" The Saudi Arabian capital Riad ied and searched for people who have gained access to blocked websites. That was for a little money – at least after Saudi-Arab relation – without problems have been possible. Everywhere there are hackers who require for the tricks of the mainly censored government between 30 and 70 dollars. In addition, they were still offering access to personal email accounts as well as DVDs with pornography.

Saudi Arabia has long been used to open the internet half-hearted. Threatening is the great, wild world of the web, which does not control as well as domestic media and as the national boundaries. Although it supported by the United States, but not yet a democratic regime, which is also referred to by some Islamist revoluczers such as Ladin as by and by corrupt and from which this is therefore also considerable support, trying to do not bother his subordinates of politically To keep information away. In addition, the values of Islam are to be protected, so that Pokemon was banned for perishable influence on the children and their morals (Pokemon support the evolutionary theory). Although you do not go as far as the Taliban, which have banned almost all media, but you want to control their influence and therefore opened the country to the Internet until the access on the side of the provider by filters on the Arabic ( and political) values obligated content. Since then, inspectors have been working incongrestly to scare the explosively growing web on verbontes and lock the corresponding URLs: a sisyphos work.

Even before the first providers were admitted to Saudi Arabia, people of providers in the liberal Lebanon or elsewhere were able to access access to the Internet. This is still possible, and then the filters are not gripping and accessing everything is open. Whether the payment of the hackers is worthwhile, if you only have to pay the bonds for long-distance language, the question is – and is already a little skepticism against the story for this reason.

Anyway, the background of history is the attempt of a censorship, ie a half-hearted opening in a country that is not only from political grounds, but also because of Islamic morality for many residents, which is likely to be the awarded amoral Watch threats from the West, but also seek open communication in chat rooms (Saudi Arabia is locking access to the Yahoo Clubs for pornography). If women are approaching the Internet out of their custody in the Islamic manner world, however, this is also true for the men who may not only be happy to live in a manner society. Seeking to prevent the Saudi Arab Internet Controllers in King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology by censorship, Iran represents once again as a struggle of the conservatives against opposition television broadcasters from abroad, which both the entertainment in state-owned television acts as also inexpensively information and calls deliver. Access is not to be blocked here by filters, but by confiscating satellite firing (risk of satellite firing; Brightly sacred anger on the Internet). Satellite firing are also banned in Saudi Arabia, but many people still use them. The newspapers are censored, as well as the radio and television channels.

In the times of war against the (predominantly Muslim) terrorism, the interpretation of Saudi Arab hacker history has become difficult. These are now a kind of freedom cheaters, which let the censorship overwind and share the people of the free flow of information, even if they take money on a good capitalist, or are it easy for criminals that are criminals about the laws of a country and therefore tended to apply as terrorists, especially as they do with their knowledge "Cyberterrorist" Start attacks? A new turnaround was given the history of the report that Saudi Arabians are looking for better software for filtering – and now western companies are snake to be the censorship of the author’s monarchs with their strict faiths for services (censorship is a rewarding Shop). The free entrepreneurship of the Western world had probably hurried to help the Taliban if they did not bode the Internet completely.

Arab News is back, referring to experts, who think that normal hackers like those who could crack in such shops, but they were able to crack email accounts, but unable to overcome the filters at the providers. Somehow, however, the story also seems to be in the context of the news that the Konigreich wants to import laws that rule the use of the Internet and also put the crack in punishment. The story could therefore also have the moral background that you have to punish such hackers as they undermine the values of Islam.

At BBC, history becomes a classic western story about the in vain of censorship, which is already amazing, because even in the UK, the media are under patriotic prere because of the war under patriotic prere. It was not further researched, but, correctly, referring to Arab News, but without the doubt at least mentioned there, is affirmatively said: "But where a will is, is also a way. And there is no shortage of people who are willing to pay money to get to forbidden websites. That can be pornography or politics, but whatever in this conservative Muslim country is banned, it is available somewhere – for a price."

But which morality is pulled out of this true, invented or even true-potential history, the Internet is certainly a medium that makes a control of the information, as it was possible with the mass media, much more difficult. The boundaries of ideological, political, cultural or religious rule can be exceeded, these alone are already questioned by the prasence of space distant and different. Everyone has become a transmitter and receptionist of information, which runs all existing sewerings. Even the people of war-proof states could communicate with each other, as partly in the Kosovo war,. No wonder that regime like the Taliban equal to the internet forbid to isolate people from the world, or that authoritar rejoice systems as in Saudi Arabia want to restrain access to the virtual world.

The anarchic, basic democratic and barely controlled Internet goods indeed a subversive weapon against each rule system and the monsters, which can make it, but apparently the western world, which has created this weapon of a previously unthinkable declaration medium, is not willing to remove this too. Even their own hierarchies and controls, as can be experienced this in crisis and war times, could in serrate that democracy becomes too dangerous, which is why it is currently less on the expansion, but rather to control and restriction of the freedoms. And if you already know where people will move, if you are overlooking them all your own dynamics and suddenly become the local beer tables to national and global busts?
