A Lebanese blogger who was apparently linked to jailed Egyptian blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad has been denied entry to Egypt on Monday, a Cairo airport official and a media watchdog said.
Imad Bazzi’s name “was on a list of people banned from entering at the request of a security apparatus,” said the official, adding that the blogger who arrived at 0800 GMT was put on a plane back to Lebanon at 1500 GMT. [Source]
Looks like Egypt’s revolution has not done much. The sad story is that Egyptian Blogger Sanad, who began a hunger strike on August 23 and more recently started refusing to drink, “could very soon die.”, according to Paris-based Reporters Without Borders.
This story tells a lot about how influential bloggers could be, and why even the smaller non-political cases, such as the Benihana lawsuit against Mark’s 248am.com blog should be won for all the bloggers’ sake.
Don’t you think that if we have a respectful government in Lebanon, we should be taking action regarding this issue, and at least investigate about the reason of such action with the Egyptian Ambassador to Beirut ? Remember guys how many Egyptian worker we have in Lebanon.
Someone might say ma bte7roz … but if we want to that the issue as a Freedom of speech concept that should be applied everywhere specially in countries that experienced a revolution for freedom, then we should consider this issue as Bte7roz w NOSS! choura2yak.com ?
your sense of advertising is boring.
Are you talking to me?
Lesh are you against mini cases like the Benihana case because they aren’t political and shouldn’t be making a big fuss about it?
no, to the choura2yak dude.
some participations he/she made are quite interesting (imho) but his/her attempt to always market his website isn’t.
I agree with friskies. choura2yak is spamming this blog advertising his site.
agreed with friskies and mark, anyone who wishes to visit shoura2yak’s blog can do so by clicking his nickname, there’s no need for him to post the URL and repeat the name so many times.
