A Blogger Should Merit Solidarity

An Egyptian blogger, Abdel Kareem Nabil, went on trial in Alexandria on charges of insulting Islam, inciting sedition and insulting the president through his Internet writings. It is Egypt’s first prosecution of a blogger. Mr. Nabil often denounced Islamic authorities and criticized President Hosni Mubarak on his Arabic-language blog. He has been in detention since November and faces up to nine years in prison if convicted.

Anyone seen any sympathy support movement gathering steam?

Ah, here's one.


Here's the proactive site of support.

And here's an example of his opinions:

The Muslims have taken the mask off to show their true hateful face, and they have shown the world that they are at the top of their brutality, inhumanity, and thievery. They have clearly shown their worst features and have shown that in dealing with others they are not governed by any moral codes.

From what I have seen yesterday of the events at Maharram Beh, which were quite shameful, and have shown me more facts that they have tried to cover over the centuries.

They have indicated that Islam is a religion of peace and forgiveness, but their true face has been uncovered to show barbarism and thievery and fanaticism and not acknowledging others, and attempting to remove them from existence.

Some may think that the actions of the Moslems does not represent Islam and has no relationship with the teachings of Islam that was brought by Mohamed 14 centuries ago, but the truth is that their actions is not different from the Islamic teachings in its original form when it has urged people to deny others and hate them and kill them and take their property, things that they know well but they try to deceive people by falsely defending the teachings of Islam by extremists and they are hiding from the truth and they prefer living a lie

His blog, Arabic and English combined.
