Abdolkarim Nabil Seliman Update

More Egyptian Embassy emails from Olivebranch:




United States of America:
[that one took some searching]

Egypt in UN:

Decorative trimmings for your blog: Fayrouz.

Mainstream coverage: ptpnet and cnet and, erm, pardon my english.

  • Moroccan king pardons 1,111 people for Eid.
  • Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani pardons some.
  • Malawi president Bingu wa Mutharika reprieves 803.
  • Even the infidel and monstrous apparatus jackbooting around in Iraq released 500 prisoners from Abu Ghraib this week.
Does Egyptian PR realise, I wonder, that they are creating a blog hero and martyr by detaining a critic at this time of month and year. The blogsphere, for all it's vibrant diversity, is filled with willfull obstinance. Some find solace in intractable pessimism, others like mules insist on green pasture. All take pride in their falls. An arrest for a blogger is nothing short of sainthood.
