Genuine crushing of dissent ...

... Four-year prison sentence for blogger “Kareem Amer”.

Small wonder that Egypt made this list: List of the 13 Internet enemies in 2006 published. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden, who also sends this link: 'Inside the Wire'. I think it worth noting that these people are where they are because they were captured on the battlefield and not, like Jack Mapanje, who is quoted here, for their writing. That said, I can't that imagine their situation is very pleasant. But the book is being published and no one will go to jail for that.)
