Intimidation and threats to Blogger Wael Abbas.

Blogger Ahmad Sherif has posted an English translation of Egyptian police intimidation targeting Egyptian blogger Wael Abbas and threatening him to stop publishing articles and videos criticizing President Mubarak and his son Gamal. “These are certainly not the ways of a nation sitting at the United Nation’s Council for Human Rights, since May 17th, 2007,” said blogger Ahmad Sherif.

    A big thanks to Ahmad, Wael and others who blog in english and arabic. This gives the American people a source to monitor the situation in Egypt and act accordingly in submitting complaints. There are many Americans such as myself who do care for world wide human rights.

    Prayers that Allah will continue to protect you, and empower you with strength and courage.
