Egyptian Blogger Sentenced to 4 Years in Jail
Before booking a trip to see the great pyramids in Egypt, please consider the story of 22-year old Abdel Kareem Nabil. Earlier today, Nabil was sentenced to four years in an Egyptian jail for the crime of expressing his opinions in a blog.
A former student at the Islamic institution Al-Azhar University, Nabil was an ardent critic of fundamentalism and conservative Muslim movements in his blog. He also wrote essays questioning the policies of Egypt’s government headed by President Hosni Mubarak.
In one post to his blog, which was last updated on October 28 2006, Nabil called Al-Azhar University “the university of terrorism” suggesting it encouraged extremism. Another post denounces Sharia Law as it applies to women.
In a short, five minute hearing, Judge Ayman al-Akazi sentenced Nabil to three years in prison for insulting Islam and inciting sectarian strife and one year for insulting Mubarak.
In an December 2005 post, Nabil wrote about riots in which a Coptic Christian church was attacked by Muslim worshipers over a play deemed offensive to Islam. "Muslims revealed their true ugly face and appeared to all the world that they are full of brutality, barbarism and inhumanity," he wrote, calling Muhammad and his early followers, “spillers of blood” for their teachings on the use of violence.
Writing about himself Nabil’s About Me statement reads, “I am down to earth Law student; I look forward to help humanity against all form of discriminations. I am currently studying Law in Al Azhar University. I am looking forward to open up my own human rights activists Law firm, which will include other lawyers who share the same views. Our main goal is to defend the rights of Muslim and Arabic women against all form of discrimination and to stop violent crimes committed on a daily basis in these countries.”
The Associated Press reports that when Nabil was taken from the court and placed in a waiting police truck, “…an Associated Press reporter heard the sound of a slap from inside the vehicle and a shriek of pain from Nabil.”
Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders and Human Rights Watch have all taken interest in Nabil’s plight. Amnesty recently declared him a prisoner of conscious.
