EGYPT'S FREE SPEECH MARTYR: A special feature on blogger Abdel Kareem Soliman over at Pajamas Media. Excerpt: "This verdict sets a legal precedent for prosecuting someone for what they write on the Internet, on charges that are not easily defined or defended against. This could be used to prosecute any blogger the government feels like punishing, and serves a huge blow to freedom of speech in Egypt."
