The war on blogging

Yesterday I was struck by news that france is going to incriminate posting violent material on the web and blogs. That means that if a blogger filmed police beating up demonstrators in France and posted it on U-Tube the blogger will face imprisonment.

When democracies set the example, it gives non-democratic regimes the excuse to follow the oppression. Turkeys has been for years trying to polish its human rights record to enter the EU. Today the story on the following link was published:

the story is in arabic but basically Turkey is banning any Internet visitor in Turkey to visit U-Tube. This was a court order that came after the prosecutor advised the court of such because the website has posted films showing Ataturk as homosexual.

هادي المطيف ضحيتنا جميعاً Hadi Al-Matif is our victim




English Below

العمل في مجال حقوق الإنسان أمر ملئ بالمواجع والآلام، فكل يوم تقريباً نسمع عن ضحية من ضحايا ممارسات وسياسات الدول، تشعل شرارة الغضب والحزن في داخلنا، فتنفجر مشاعرنا دون جدوى ونصاب بالاحباط الشديد واحيانا نغرق في دوامة الاكتئاب. وهذا كان الحال معي عندما سمعت عن قضية هادي سعيد المطيف الذي مازال يقضي عقوبة بالسجن بدأت منذ خمسة عشر عاماً عندما قال "صلي على ذكر النبي" وهو لم يتعدى الثامنة عشر عاماً. سجن في عام 1992 بعد ان فسر البعض قوله هذا على انه اساءة للنبي، ليفقد هذا الشاب السعودي مستقبله وليحرم من حياة طبيعية يعيشها غيره من جيله وليمنع من ان ينمو نمواً طبيعياً يمر بالمراحل المختلفة للإنسان والتجارب الانسانية الطبيعية التي جميعنا مارسناها.
