Free Kareem

Kareem Amer a young Egyptian blogger was sentenced to 4 years-since 2006- in prisons for charges I, personally, didn’t know they exist in our modern world till the day of his prosecution. Amer was found guilty of insulting Islam and the president (YES Mubarak).He has completed his sentences FULLY without any parole and yet he is still detained; Kareem’s Lawyers have no information why he is been held captive up till this now.
Kareem was the first blogger to be prosecuted for personal writings publishing online, this was a part of opposition crack down post-2005 elections. This harsh unprecedented rule had main propose; to deter bloggers and people who found at Internet a free speech refuge in a country has been -in the last 60s years- ruled by generals, martial and emergency laws.
Mubarak has been always outspoken about the retaliation of an Islamists (Muslim Brotherhood) getting to power on religious freedom level, spreading the scare of new Iran. NDP was very proud with the secular regime which fights religious intolerance of Muslim Brotherhood; towards minorities and women. On the other hand, people- like Kareem- are being prosecuted for speaking their mind about religious believes.
The Irony is where the sentence of Kareem- for speaking his mind- was harsher than Mamdoh Ismael’s –Ferry incident which Mubarak laughed at earlier this week-
I would love to compare this sentence and the same cases which take place in Khomaeni’s Iran. Is this making NDP better than Iran and Hamas??
Some people refused to show solidarity with Kareem's case because he is “atheist” and ”infidel” which is totally ridiculous and hypocritical Freedom of speech should protect both Islamists/Copts/and Infidels otherwise it’s constriction of liberty.
For people who found Kareem’s case irrelevant to “their freedom” quest I would say Mubarak regime oppression didn’t differentiate between Muslim and Non Muslim. Poverty, oppression and torture have no religion. The true insult of Islam is disrespect of choices taken and ideas expressed by  the god given mind.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November

Happy Guy Fawkes day everyone

For those of you who know nothing about what the heck this is click here

And I love to share two of my favorite (V for Vendetta) parts  =)




You have No Fear Anymore, You Are Completely Free”



The Man Who Drank The Tea

On an Upper Egypt tour, Mubarak “spontaneously” asked a poor/ordinary upper Egyptian man to offer him “Sa’adi Tea” at his home 

I will not comment on this boring  election stunt which we have to watch every 5 years ,thus far what I am concerned with  is Mubarak’s outrageous joke. The 30 year-president of Egypt, made a cheap joke on the expense of the dead 1000 Egyptian workers drowned in the Red Sea; while the NDP member accused of this catastrophe has been free since and his company still operates with the same low safety ferries.

Yet, I won’t mention the rescue operation which we all have seen on TV - Rescue Teams took 6 hrs to act-

I can not believe there are people that really laughed at this cheap joke; those dead corps of our sons/fathers/sisters/mothers

This is the script of the joke:

Random Upper Egyptian Guy: We use ferries to go to the other side of the Nile; to Girga

Mubarak:  Are they the same ferries that sink  **laughing** !!

Random Upper Egyptian Guy: No sir **Laughing**

---- Laughter

This Video Montage for the Comedian Mubarak and pervious interviews with (MURDERED) workers families



Ya Rayes! those people have died under your watch because of the corruption, neglect and poverty which are NOT funny.

Moreover, their families never had the chance to say goodbye or to get justice which is NOT funny either.

By the way: your re-election; that means we have to live through this another 6 years is NOT funny anymore.
