You’ve probably heard the news on Kareem Amer, the Egyptian blogger who was jailed a few years ago for criticizing the Egyptian president and Al-Azhar University. The guy is now finally free after completing his prison sentence.
Unfortunately though, there’s another blogger, and someone I personally know, who is still in jail, simply for the evil horrendous horrible crime of peacefully expressing his views in a very civil way and advocating freedom of speech in his country, Bahrain.
His wife just wrote an open letter to Hilary Clinton who’s schedule to arrive in Bahrain soon, urging her to bring up the matter with the Bahraini authorities.
Thing is, Ali isn’t merely being imprisoned. He’s also being subjected to horrible torture.
Please spread the word if you can.
