From Speaking His Mind To Expulsion From Al Azhar: Abdelkareem Nabil Soliman’s New Dilemma

October 30, 2006

Abdelkareem Nabil Soliman has had a tough time of it.

First, the 22-year-old law student attending Egypt’s world-famous Islamic university, Al Azhar, witnessed late 2005’s Alexandria Riots firsthand.

Then the young man was arrested for posting his decidedly un-Islamic thoughts on his BLOG.

While he claims he wasn’t treated horribly (as many are in Egyptian prisons), the fact that he was even detained for speaking his (nonviolent) opinion in a country, no, region of the world where people routinely kill Copts and other Christians because we aren’t “smart” enough to believe in “the better religion,” as Islam is often called, is very sad. Sadder still is the fact that these violent acts are rarely, if ever, prosecuted.

Back to the “Abdelkareem’s Raw Deal Timeline,” the beginning of 2006 had young Kareem expelled from Al Azhar University. Keep in mind that this University bans Copts (Christian Egyptians) from attending, even though they pay the taxes that keep Azhar’s doors open.

After the expulsion, the Alexandrian native was featured on an Al Jazeera documentary about bloggers and freedom. Surprisingly, several famous Moslem bloggers supported Kareem, despite the fact that he dragged their religion through the mud. It should be noted here that Abdelkareem was born a Moslem.

Things had seemed to settle down for a while, until this week, when it turns out that Kareem is being interrogated again (in the Egyptian “neyabah al 3amah”) for his writings and sentiments.

Thankfully, lawyers from a big Human Rights Organization in the Middle East will be with him.

Unfortunately, however, all the lawyers in the world won’t be able to keep Kareem out of prison this time if the powers that be realize how many people in the Western World care about his fate.

Or perhaps it is the ever-growing assembly of eyes that are peering in on the pitiful practices in Egypt that have the power to save young Kareem.

Spread the word, keep him in your prayers, and don’t forget to say a prayer for the safety and freedom of all Egyptians.. and all human beings everywhere.

    “Please don’t think I’m a hater, I just want Peace on earth, and obliterating Islam is the only way to do it.”

    You obviously dont want peace since you managed to eleminate 1.2 billion ppl off the face of the earth…hmmm I wonder what if the same feelings were reiterated about christians how would you feel? I assume hurt and angry…(Wait I rather not entertain those thoughts because I would never stand for someone wishing such evilness on Christians)….But this does make me question why does hypocrisy runs so deep amongst ppl who claim to want “peace”….While I sympathize with Mr. Abdelkareem’s perdicament I find you acutely racist and really ppl like you shouldnt be allowed to use the internet because you spread hatred and you are no better than the Hitler that once roamed the earth and no better than those Egyptian goons you speak of…Please don’t rally for the support of individuals seeking freedom when you want the destruction of a transnational community (and while this is redundant, it is important to note they do make up more than one sixth of the world population..)!

    Think before you speak…or in this case blog….it’ll do the world good…

    I said to obliterate ISLAM, not Muslims. And have you ever heard the phrase ‘40,000 Frenchmen can’t be wrong’?
    Well, that saying can perfectly apply to the misguided 1.2 billion you speak of..
