Egyptian Blogger, Abdel Kareem Nabil, Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison for Insulting Islam


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.

      Yes it is … can one only imagibe what the extreme ones are like.

      Makes people bitching about their civil liberties in this country ring rather hollow doesn’t it?

      In the name of tolerance towards Islam … Muslims are being allowed their own independent school within the public school system. A step towards indocrinating non-Muslims. Wake up American … Wake up democracies of the Free World … in the name of politically correct appeasement we are being taking over from within. Where is the public outcry?
      The public school system is meant to be a melting pot of all cultures/religions.
      When segregated education based on culture or religion is desired by parents for their children … it is independently funded … not financed by public school system. Again Islam is being appeased in the name of tolerance.

      If the Bush cabal lives on much longer, the US will have laws just like these. Kinda makes you wish for another revolution, doesn’t it?

      #4; Nope, I just wish the America-hating whiners and moaners of the radical left would exercise their right to give up their American citizenship and go live elsewhere. Better choose carefully though; not all countries are as accomodating as we are of ignorant dolts criticizing and mocking their own country or its leaders.

      Everyone ,except Muslims, are coming out against Islam ,we should shut them down in the western world because they are a threat to peace and order as we know it.Our democracy will destroy us if we don’t get a handle on this issue.
