Free Kareem Amer Petition

I'm not usually big on online petitions (fully half of which seem to be dedicated to getting Greg Gutfeld kicked off Huffington Post) but this one is for a good cause which crosses all political stripes.

The Free Kareem Amer Petition has been set up to try and pressure anyone who has some power to try and undo the incarceration of Abdul Kareem Nabeel Suleiman, an Egyptian blogger who just yesterday received a 4 year sentence for the "crimes" of defaming the President of Egypt and insulting Islam on his site.

While this story has been getting a lot of attention on various blogs, FreeKareen.org is probably the best place to go for the most up to date information.

Hello, could you help me promote this freedom video as much as you can, if you agree to its contents, of course. It’s about Egypt’s real nature and the accelerating imprisonment of freedom fighters in general, and bloggers like Kareem and many others under severe threats from the Egyptian Government.

Many thanks, Ahmad
