If you ever questioned whether you think that we live in a police state in the US, or that George W. Bush somehow runs a regime … maybe you should put things into perspective?
You think your rights are being violated in the United States? Take a good look at what happened to Abdel Kareem Nabil, an Egyptian blogger who was sentenced to 4 years for insulting Islam.
An Egyptian blogger was convicted Thursday and sentenced to four years in prison for insulting Islam, the Prophet Muhammad and Egypt’s president, sending a chill through fellow Internet writers who fear a government crackdown.
“I am shocked,” said Wael Abbas, a blogger who writes frequently about police abuses and other human rights violations in Egypt. “This is a terrible message to anyone who intends to express his opinion and to bloggers in particular.” (Washington Post)
Take a good look folks at what it means to really lose your rights and live under a rule of tyranny.
