The woman behind this short video love note to Saudi Arabia, known only as Areej, tidily and artfully summarizes the problem at the core of the unrest now embroiling a number of states in the Arab world. After righteously decrying Saudi's discrimination against women, and its censorship policies, Areej writes, "I love my country, but my country is not mine."


Simple, true, and the sentiment behind the downfall of an increasing number of Middle Eastern regimes.
