German NGO calls for the immediate release of the Egyptian Blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad
Berlin - 29 September 2011 – The non-profit Mideast Freedom Forum Berlin (MFFB) urges the German Foreign Minister to plead for the immediate release of the Egyptian blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad before his hearing of an appeal which is scheduled for October 4, 2011.
The 25 year old Maikel Nabil Sanad was sentenced to three years in prison because of his criticism of the military leadership in Egypt. Maikel Nabil Sanad criticized the brutal proceedings of the military against protestors and meticulously described the many human rights abuses. At a military court he was accused of having spread false information and having insulted the military. Without a lawyer present and without the possibility to inform his family, he was sentenced in a summary procedure. To protest for his release and against his unfair treatment Maikel Nabil started a hunger strike in August and a partly thirst strike since the middle of September. A hearing of an appeal is scheduled for October 4. Nobody knows if Maikel Nabil will still be alive at that day. read more

Ahmadinejad's discourse was not just limited to a smear campaign against Israel.Instead he continued in the traditions of Nazi anti-Semitism when he stated the people of the world are being played with by "a small but deceitful number of people called Zionists.“ According to Ahmadinejad, the Zionists have "been dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the US in a deceitful, complex and furtive manner."
