Egyptian blogger Alaa arrested again
I’m worried about Sandmonkey. Alaa (remember several years ago, I took part in the free Alaa campaign when he was jailed for criticizing the Egytpian government) has been arrested again, this time for criticizing Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood on his blog. There are arrest warrants out for four other bloggers but they aren’t identified in the article over at The Blaze. From inside the prosecutor’s office, Alaa posted messages on Twitter saying most of the accusations were based on comments sent to his account by others, rather than anything he posted himself.
Meanwhile, Islamists in Egypt have taken over a mosque and are using it as a house of torture for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the latest case of violent persecution that experts fear will only get worse.
How ’bout that Arab spring.
