Egyptian blogger Abdulmonem released

Egyptian Abdulmonem has been released from prison, welcome back bro. The blogsphere passed a crucial test for solidarity with one another regardless of political differences. Abdulmonem is a MB blogger, was jailed 15 April 07 and the response was overwhelming. Egyptian, Arab and non-Arab bloggers, liberal or not, supported Abdulmonem.

"Human rights" activists in the Middle East most often campaign for and care about those they preceive as "liberal", the blogsphere must be different however.
