It’s very cool to see a friend launch a new website on a great domain name, especially when it has a greater purpose than to generate revenue. Arabs.com is a new forum-themed website that was recently launched by Future Media Architects and its founder, Thunayan Khalid al-Ghanim.
Thunayan took some time to write a thought provoking post on Arabs.com, which explains the forum’s purpose, touching on the historical significance of current events in the Arab world:
Though conscience is a concept difficult to define in general, it is quite easy for the person to credibly define their individual conscience. Individual conscience is the standard of credibility to which we subscribe and express ourselves. At Arabs.com, the human conscience, consciously defined by human individuality, is our source of credibility.
The greatest space of freedom is the one between a person’s ears. Arabs.com is concerned with safeguarding the independence and integrity of this space.
It is Arabs.com’s profound belief in the maturity of the Arab consciousness—which has transcended the stagnant political process and overturned historical convictions—that compelled us to lay the foundations for this forum. This is a forum for Arabs, by Arabs, from every dissent, without bias or preference for one voice over another. This is a forum to create a reality for Arabs without censorship or guardianship, where each person is responsible for their exercise of free choice and expression.
History is made not by super-powers of heaven or earth, but human-made, through the collective exercise of humanity expressing its self freely, and that is our strategic philosophy in contributing to the creation of a new reality in the Arab world and the world at large…”
FMA has tens of thousands of domain names, and likely hundreds of top quality domain assets like Arabs.com. Development is time consuming, especially when you consider the moderation that must go into operating a forum such as the one on Arabs.com.
Although I don’t speak Arabic (some might say I am still trying to master the English language), I want to wish Thunayan and FMA, bettawfeeq – good luck on this new venture.
I also look forward to seeing the launch of one of my favorite FMA domain names, Ibiza.com, which is expected in April. Hopefully I will get to celebrate the launch of the site with him in Ibiza (wife permitting of course).
