Good News From the Land of the Pharaohs

Egypt has released blogger Abdolkarim. The Big Pharaoh reports:

Egyptian blogger Abdolkarim has been released after 18 days behind bars. He posted a short entry on his blog saying that he will tell us about what happened to him and that he thanks everyone who stood beside him even if he/she didn't share his thoughts. Of course, those who helped Abdolkarim include a lot of non-Egyptians who took the time to email or call the Egyptian embassies around the world.

I will keep you posted with his new entries.

Great news and great job by all those who e-mailed or called Egyptian embassies. Let freedom of speech reign!
