On Muslim Silence

Big Pharaoh wrote an excellent article decrying the Muslim silence in the face of terror attacks, particularly terror attacks by Muslims against other Muslims. This is a blog based out of Egypt, which had a huge vigil to free Alaa from Egyptian prison. They are foremost advocates for freedom, and have paid the price for it. Please go to their blog and show some love for what they are doing.

"Egyptian blogger Alaa (of Big Pharaoh)"

Is Big Pharoah, Alaa?

I had no idea that the two were the same.

Yup, they are one and the same.

Wow.

I sent my few chain emails about releasing Alaa and I never knew it was BP. I hope he is ok after that clash with the Egyptian regeme.

Now I have a face to put with the words. :)

Okay, I double checked on the website...

Seems that Big Pharaoh is not the same as Alaa/Manaal. They simply reposted so much from Alaa, I was under a false impression.

Alaa's actual site is here:

Oh I was convinced! So much so that I asked BP to confirm it for me! LoL.
