Please Read - This One's Got Me Angry

Egyptian blogger Kareem Amer was just sentenced to 4 years in prison for things he wrote in his blog. What did he write in his blog which earned such a harsh sentence? He criticized Islam and the King of Egypt.

There's a site [here] which is working to free Kareem. They're also translating his blog entries into English so you can know exactly what earned such a harsh sentence.

Please support him in any way you can. Learn and get involved. And most of all, cherish your freedom of speech.

If I were criminally liable for criticizing President Bush I'd be put away for life. This is serious stuff... and this is a prisoner of conscience.
