Jail for insulting Mubarak

According to the judge who convicted the Egyptian blogger Kareem Amer, he should spend four years in jail, and one of these years is for insulting the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, but what is the insult? What exactly did Kareem Amer say?

Kareem often criticised Mr Mubarak's regime on his blog, in one post he described the president's regime as a "symbol of dictatorship". It seems that this was seen as an insult because the Egyptian government claims to be democtratic.

But have you noticed that we only had one democratic president for the past 25 years???

Governments should be open minded about blogs. The problem with the Egytian government guys is that there is no use in them being open minded if they dont have brains in the first place.
