Arrested for converting to Christianity
Sandmonkey covered a very important story everyone must read, of an Egyptian man who was arrested and has been rotting in jail for 18 months for converting to Christianity. THAT was his 'crime.' His name is Bahaa El Din Al Akkad, and he is a 57 year old Egyptian, ex-muslim sheikh who converted to christianity more than a year ago, and thereafter was arrested by State Security and thrown in jail. Please read this story. Culture for all readers, what do you think we can do? Another campaign, as I did for Hala Al-Masry? E-mail Egyptian ambassadors? What? How do we get the word out here?
