Fear Factor in east Saudi Arabia

The fear factor is gone in East Saudi Arabia.  One of the protesters there called me yesterday, and what impressed me: 1) the most advanced technological expertise; 2) the sheer bravery of protesters there.  They are vocal in calling for the downfall of the royal family.  You talk to an activist there and you know that he will be in jail the next week.
