Imagining a year of self-immolations

Blogger Issandr El Amrani of the Arabist has an unusual and provocative piece of political fiction in Al Masry Al Yom, almost in the style of Jonathan Swift or George Orwell. I can only admire his vision of the happy outcome of this grim tale -- hundreds of thousands of Arab mothers taking to the streets, laying siege to presidential palaces and parliaments, blocking traffic.
