These are the kinds of laws that the Organization of the Islamic Conference is working to bring to the West. “Egypt court upholds 4-year sentence for blogger,” from Reuters, December 22:

CAIRO (Reuters) – An Egyptian court confirmed the four-year jail sentence imposed on an Egyptian student blogger for posting writings critical of Islam and the government, the state news agency MENA said.
Blogger Abdel Kareem Nabil Suleiman, then 22, was arrested in 2006 and charged with publishing opinions aimed at disturbing public order, insulting the head of state and defaming Islam. He was expelled from al-Azhar University, Egypt’s most prestigious seat of Islamic learning.

Suleiman will spend only one year in jail as he has already spent three years in detention since his arrest….

    Just goes to show how screwed up Islam is.

      Unsettling. If Egyptians enjoyed freedom of speech, might they change the law that prohibited criticizing Islam? Or would they need to change to a non-Islamic government?

      mahalo for your comment and have a very Merry Christmas!
