Egypt: Internet War on Islam

Egyptian blogger The Sphinx has decided to remove links to Digg on his blog because of the increasing attacks on Muslims and Islam. On Digg, The Sphinx says: “comments bashing Islam and calling for the genocide of all Muslims or the destruction of Islam as a whole started getting extremely positive ratings, while the comments saying that it's just a minority of extremists and not the religion got buried very quickly, along with the comments saying that not all Muslims are terrorists, and that the media is just biased and that Islam is in fact not a violent or hateful religion.”
