Comarade Madawi Al-Rasheed

I want to write a tribute one day to this brave and principled woman, who is a professor at the University of London.  She is a rare brave Arab intellectual who has never wavered in her principled defense of human rights everywhere.  Her stance against Saudi repression has been exemplary despite all attempts at intimidating her or co-opting her by House of Saud.   She is a true independent Arab intellectual.  Follow her on twitter.
