Facebook "blogger" Ayman Hassan Mansour has been sentenced to three years imprisonment on charges of "exploitation of religion to promote extremist ideas with the intention of inciting sectarian strife, damaging national unity and insulting the Islamic religion."

Mansour reportedly confessed to the charges during investigation, providing no justification for his actions.

The court verdict was issued upon the court's "confirmation of certainty that the defendant, through his Facebook page, has deliberately offended the dignity of Islam and subjected it to ridicule and mockery, in addition to insult, scorn and contempt; noting that the words said by the accused, all focused on the Quran and the religion of Islam and the Prophet of Islam and Muslims and members of his household, is outrageous and scurrilous, and that the defendant [used the words] at will."

ridiculous
so we throw freedom of speech out the window for the sake of some myths about a book? i think this will only create more anti-religion blogging. Religion should not be immune to criticism.

The downfall of Egypt
I keep stating it, but Ahram Online will not publish it; There is no tolerance or free speech in Islam. Islam will be the downfall of Egypt.
