Manalaa.net spews hate and bile towards Israel
Alaa was the Egyptian blogger who was jailed for months over his protest of the Egyptian government actions. I wrote about his jailing and torture right here. Well, thanks to google's (imperfect but very useful) web translator, I was able to actually read manalaa.net. And it is not pretty. You can read for yourself the hate that is spewed on that site towards Israel. I thought to check this out based on a comment Alaa left on Big Pharoah. Here I thought that Alaa was jailed for being all counter-cultural, and now I find out that that is far from the truth. I cannot wait until Google's web translator from Arabic to English gets out of the Beta stage. Then it can really be put to use!
