Blogger Gets 4 Yrs. In Prison For Insulting Islam?

by Dr. D ~ February 22nd, 2007

AP Story:  “ALEXANDRIA, Egypt, Feb. 22 – 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.”  Read the whole story.

Comment:  Oh, Oh!  I guess I better not visit Egypt any time soon!  From what I read, the blogger was a proponent of ‘reform’ within Islam.  Something that most Islamic countries are still not ready for, even those which are supposed to be democratic like Egypt.  A year for criticizing the President?  Wow, the American blogosphere alone would fill every jail in the world if everyone who criticized Pres. Bush was sentenced to a year.  It calls into question what kind of democracy Egypt really has.
