Karim Amer is an Egyptian man currently serving a four-year term in Borg al-Arab Prison in Alexandria. He was sentenced on February 22, 2007 for making dissentient statements against Islam and his government on his blog. He made these statements in a peaceful and non-threatening manner, but was still imprisoned. Amnesty International has declared him to be a prisoner of conscience and has demanded his immediate release. I think it is necessary for the international community to come to his aid at a time when he is unable to do so himself. Please sign the petition for his release and spread the word.
