"Qatar Island": Saudis Launch Massive Canal Project To Cut Off Neighbor


It almost sounds too insane to be believed, but Saudi Arabia's move to
further isolate neighboring Arab rival Qatar by literally turning it
into an island
is but the latest in an intense year long feud between
the two countries that has already produced its fair share of bizarre
headlines.

Tiny but ultra-wealthy Qatar is a peninsula which shares a 37.5 mile
border (60km) with Saudi Arabia on the kingdom's northeast side and juts
out from the Arabian peninsula about 100 miles into the Persian Gulf.

Saudi media revealed this week the kingdom is quickly moving forward
with ambitious plans to dig a 200 meter wide and 15-10 meter deep canal
the entire length of the land border, effectively creating 'Qatar
island' as some Mideast news sources are already calling it.

When discussing viable options for private and secure messengers here we often complained that Moxie Marlinspike is vehemently opposed to open up Signal's server source code in order to enable an alternative infrastructure, let alone a federated network.

And now, guess what happened.

Amazon threatens to suspend Signal's AWS account over censorship circumvention


Image/photo
Direct access to Signal has been censored in Egypt, Oman, Qatar, and UAE for the past 1.5 years. These countries attempt to block Signal by blocking connections to Signal servers from all ISPs. [...]
With Google Cloud and AWS out of the picture, it seems that domain fronting as a censorship circumvention technique is now largely non-viable in the countries where Signal had enabled this feature. [...]
In the meantime, the censors in these countries will have (at least temporarily) achieved their goals. Sadly, they didn’t have to do anything but wait.
