Free Kareem: A dark day for Arab freedom of speech

Did you know that Egypt has solved all its economic, social and political problems? I mean we all know that there is no poverty, no corruption. All the cities are green and all people are healthy. There is only one problem: those damn bloggers!

Don’t be fooled by the young age of these dangerous bloggers. They look young and innocent, but in reality they are extremely dangerous beasts.

So what should be done with those bloggers? Let’s start throwing them in jail!

Let’s make of this 22 year old blogger, Kareem, an example for those evil bloggers. Let’s throw him in jail for four years!

Once Egypt rids itself from its last remaining problem, namely the bloggers, it can concentrate on its next big national project: inventing a machine that allows time travel to the Dark Ages.

Just think of the tourism potential of this machine.

    Repulsive for me and a lot of others, yet enlightened for many more (maybe?).
    By the way Humeid, we (the arabs) are still living in the Middle Ages; we just have plumbing and use cars instead of horses. :P

    The sarcasm is delicious.

    And when did Arab freedom of speech ever see the light? we live in a polar night of repression and political perversion.

    If he said anything bad about Islam, then he deserves it (I never read what he wrote). If not, then FREEDOM for KAREEM and [edited] Mubarak.

    Yea lets we all start insulting Allah and Islam so that we convince ourselves that we have freedom of speech, yea I’m a blogger I’m a lord of my own no on can stop me.

    Let him rust in jail.

    What a disappointing comment, really.

    You say ‘let him rust in jail’, because he used his ‘freedom’ to say something that you don’t like (I am not even sure he insulted Allah or Islam by the way).

    This attitude is used by every repressive group form to shut up others.

    And so, every group want the other group to rust in jail. I don’t know what kind of freedom remains then?

    It seems that not even young bloggers in Jordan understand freedom of speech yet.

    Hello, could you help me promote this freedom video as much as you can, if you agree to its contents, of course. It’s about Egypt’s real nature and the accelerating imprisonment of freedom fighters in general, and bloggers like Kareem and many others under severe threats from the Egyptian Government.

    Many thanks

    Here is the link to the video:

    Well lets say you or anyone else have a family, few kids and one of them likes to insult you for no reason in front of the rest of the kids; he describes you with bad words, he says you are a bad person, thief.. etc and never stops, would you keep him do that and turn other kids on you?

    Another example if he likes to set totally naked in front of others, this is some kind of freedom, would you allow this?

    I guess the definition of freedom is not clear, not only for young Jordanian bloggers but for everyone.

    Some people say he was jailed for insulting Mubarak, but so many Egyptian bloggers insulted him, even much more famous bloggers than this guy and they weren’t jailed, I believe he insulted Islam.

  10. Sid Vicious Says:

    well that’s the whole point now Samer Marzouq, isn’t it? Besides, free speech has nothing to do with letting your kids talk crap about you or sit naked in the living room.

  11. Issa Says:

    I second Marzouq. There should be a big red line when it comes to relegion. Again if he insulted Islam then he deserves it, no Freedom of Speech when talking bad about Islam.
