Egypt Coptic Christian Maikel Nabil charged with insulting Islam, Germany requested to send home Joseph Mayton | 30 September 2012 | 0 Comments
Egyptian blogger Maikel Nabil is charged with insulting Islam while in Germany. CAIRO: Egyptian Coptic Christian activist Maikel Nabil, who is known internationally as the first prisoner of conscience in the post-Hosni Mubarak Egypt after the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) jailed him for insulting the military now faces charges of insulting Islam, he reported on Saturday while in Germany.
The Egyptian government have requested that the German government return Nabil as soon as possible so he can stand on the charges, Egypts Youm al-Sabaa newspaper reported.
He is being accused of contempt of the Islamic religion and abuse of the divine. Also among the charges, the newspaper reported are insulting the Prophet and his followers.
The lawsuit against Nabil says that he consistently insults Islam through his online activities, including his Twitter account.
It is unclear if Germany will respond to the request or if Nabil will return to the country in the near future as he now faces charges that could see him return to prison.
Nabil was jailed by the military junta in early 2011, but was freed ahead of the one-year anniversary of the January 25 revolution that ousted the Mubarak government from power.
The Egyptian government and military council had received fierce criticism domestically and abroad for their detention and sentencing of Nabil, who was jailed for comments he made in a blog post entitled The army and the people are not one hand.
On April 10, 2011, in a case widely seen as the first of its kind in the post-Mubarak Egypt, Nabil was sentenced to three years in jail by a military court.
The young blogger spent most of his time in jail on a prison hunger strike to protest his treatment in Egypts judicial and prison systems.
Last fall, authorities sent Nabil to a psychiatric hospital after he refused to eat. Doctors and observers said it was a move by the government to distance themselves from the potential death that has faced the young blogger during their care.

This is simply the new Egyptian government expressing their outrage at the paltry offering of $450 million that Obama wants to give them. Tolerance? Up it to $2-3billion and maybe the Coptics will be allowed to live...for now.
Islam is an insult on civilization. It is merely a cult of death. It promotes hate in its so-called holy book. It promotes death. The world needs to destroy all vestiges of this hate cult as it attempted to do naziism.
Islam is an insult in and of itself
I will not submit. I will never surrender.
I will never surrender Da Vinci, Newton and Einstein, for Allahu Akbar, and flying passenger planes into office buildings.
I will never surrender Michelangelo, Vermeer and Rembrandt, for Allahu Akbar, and forced female genital mutilation.
I will never surrender Descartes, Locke and Jefferson, for Allahu Akbar, and beheading apostates of conscience.
I will never surrender Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, for Allahu Akbar, and child rape called arranged marriage.
I will never surrender Shakespeare, Byron, and Shelley, for Allahu Akbar, and stoning rape victims to death for adultery.
I will never surrender Faulkner, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, for Allahu Akbar, and poisoning schoolgirls for daring to learn.
I will never surrender the sacred freedom of speech, for Allahu Akbar, and laws that forbid telling the truth about an evil false prophet.
Voltaire said, To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize. I will not be ruled over by the followers of a Seventh Century desert pirate, rapist and mass-murderer.
Randall Wallace said, They may take our lives, but they can never take our freedom. Would that our leaders were so brave, or as dedicated to human liberty. But even without them, I will not submit, and I will never surrender to a barbaric death cult masquerading as a religion.
I’m going to print that out, Matt. Thank you.
Under Islamic law (shariah), the definition of slander is very different than in the U.S. legal system. The Islamic book of law, The Reliance of the Traveller (or Umdat al-Salik’) says that Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person [a Muslim] that he would dislike. Likewise, the hadiths (or recounted sayings and deeds of Muhammad) contain the following account :
Do you know what slander is? They answered, Allah and His Messenger know best. He said, It is to mention of your brother that which he would dislike. Someone asked, What if he is as I say? And he replied, If he is as you say, you have slandered him, and if not, you have calumniated* him. — Sunan Abu Dawud
For a totalitarian system of societal control like shariah, information dominance is very important. Controlling the message, in other words, is critical. Within the Muslim community, fostering close bonds of loyalty is well-served by a policy like this one on slander. Its real impact for non-Muslims, though, is a little different. The prohibition on telling harbi (non-Muslim residents of Dar al-Harb, the lands where inhabitants do not live under shariah) anything negative about Islam is meant to keep infidels unaware of the true character and intentions of shariah-promoting Muslims. In fact, telling the actual truth about Islam to non-believers is considered so detrimental to the prospects for shariah Islam to achieve its global domination objectives that Muslims can be subject to punishment if they disclose such things.
i have read many cases, of MUSLIM TERRORISTS, in Europe,
who “could not be returned” to their home countries,
because they would be persecuted.
This should qualify him for asylum, right?
This should qualify him for asylum, right?
I would also add typical Islamic behavior :
1 - Posing as victim, while being THE aggressor.
2 - Being a bigot against ALL kaffirs (non-Muslims) and falsely cry “racism.”
And I agree.
And sooner or later we’re going to get the chance to prove it.
1. Find the filthy pig requester.
2. Send predator.
I can think of nothing more insulting than being a Muslim.
Rescuing THE pig from the clutches of pig hating Congressman Keith Ellison. Iowa loves FLOYD!
