Egypt bans European papers for comments on Islam

CAIRO – Egypt has banned editions of two French and German newspapers, Le Figaro and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, because of articles deemed insulting to Islam, the state news agency MENA said on Sunday. Under a decree issued by Information Minister Anas el-Feki, the two editions will not be able to enter the country, it said. “They published articles which disparaged Islam and claimed that the Islamic religion was spread by the sword and that the prophet … was the prophet of evil,” it added. “The minister of information said that he would not allow any publication that insults the Islamic religion or calls for hatred or contempt of any religion to be distributed inside Egypt,” the agency said.

Freedom of Speech? Freedom of Expresion? Well only few days ago Iran’s staged Holocaust cartoon exhibition saying that “we staged this fair to explore the limits of freedom Westerners believe in”. So what happen now? Dont be so pathetic….
