Watch What You Blog - Only In The Middle East?
This is breaking news I understand, an Egyptian blogger has been sentenced to four years in prison for insulting Islam and the president of Egypt in his blog. Scary stuff!
Abdel Kareem Soliman's trial and conviction will scare a lot of middle eastern bloggers, I think. Egypt has a bad habit of arresting bloggers that criticise the government and Islam. I think the Sandmonkey will write on this subject later today on his blog. I hope he stays safe, he can be critical at times as well.
