Seems like Tomanbays only argument is that the detained bloggers writing is so repulsive and anti-free speech itself that it disqualifies him from that particular human right. Alaa got a lot of similar comments. It's unfortunate and I don't think those bloggers and commentators themselves would like to be dragged away by seven security agents in the middle of the night.
Well, here is my unfortunate opinion in bullets (I hope this works out!!):
- Nobody have the right to deny anybody the particular human right of free speech.
- The government most certainly doesn't have the right to detain anybody on the basis of his opinions, whatever they are.
- People on the other hand have the right to sue anybody how they deem have insulted, or incited hatred or oppression against them. (Which is different from denying them free speech)
- Being from a majority doesn't deny you that right.
- Christians in Egypt's need to make use of that right more often, as there are much more hate-talk and inflammatory speeches made against their religion than Muslims.
- I am not supporting AbdelKarim, but nevertheless opposing his detention, because the government doesn't have the right to represent my own religious beliefs, or defend them on my behalf.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
