Internet Human Rights Alert – Egyptian Blogger Abdel Kareem disowned by father
From Egypt's Rantings of a Sandmonkey : "[Embattled Egyptian Blogger] Abdel Kareem's father announced today that he is disowning Abdel Kareem, and that he would like to see Sharia Law applied to his son, in which he would have 3 days to repent at the end of which if he is not repentant, he would be killed."

“The Father also announced that he intends to disown his son publicly in court – accompanied by his Koran-memorizing 4 other children – the day of the verdict in order to ‘lift the pressure’ that the civil society and human rights organization maybe imposing on the Court. He also called the Human Rights organizations who are fighting for his son’s freedom ‘Chimps Rights Organizations’ since ‘they are defending a Chimp like Abdel Kareem’ who is emulating the west in ‘their thinking and opinions’. Nice, eh?
Why do I have the feeling that this court session will be a circus?”
Help free Kareem here.
