JPost blogger in Egypt arrested
Ahmed Meligy, who blogs for the JPost in Egypt, was reportedly arrested on Monday in Egypt
. No details are known at this time regarding any charges against him.
An associate of Meligy, whose blog "Egypt's Missing Peace" has been critical of the Egyptian government, informed the Post that he had been arrested in Alexandria.
No other information was immediately available, and the Post was unable to confirm Meligy's whereabouts.
Meligy had recently informed Post Blog editor Lidar Grave that he would have to take a short hiatus from blogging because he was receiving threats.
early November, Meligy opened a blog post critical of Egyptian
President Mohamed Morsi with the words, "I hope that I don’t get
arrested for this one." He went on to say "the Muslim Brotherhood is
creating a dictatorship that will set back my Egypt for years to come."
Aren't you glad that the Obama administration is supporting the Morsi dictatorship and teaching them about democracy? Isn't this much better than having Mubarak in power? I don't think so either.
