Egyptian Jailed For Insulting Islam On Facebook

Egyptian jailed for Facebook Islam insult


An Egyptian court sentenced a man to three years in jail with hard labour on Saturday for insulting Islam in postings on Facebook, the official MENA news agency reported.

The Cairo court found that Ayman Yusef Mansur “intentionally insulted the dignity of the Islamic religion and attacked it with insults and ridicule on Facebook,” the agency reported.

The court said his insults were “aimed at the Noble Koran, the true Islamic religion, the Prophet of Islam and his family and Muslims, in a scurrilous manner,” the agency reported.

It did not provide details on what he had written that was deemed to be offensive.

Mansur was arrested in August after police tracked him down through his internet address.

Egyptian law outlaws insults to religion. The law has been used in the past to try Shiite Muslims.

"intentionally insulted the dignity of the Islamic religion"


And once Islam gets the UN ruling banning “religious defamation, this will be coming here.

Which left/liberals will like because they can get those nasty conservatives, Christians and anyone else their desired jihadist masters don't like.
