Rapha An Egyptian man, Abdel Kareem Soliman, was put on trial and sentenced to four years in prison last week.  The reason was that Soliman has insulted the Egyptian President and the main religion in that area on his blog.

So our critical question is should a man go to jail for his own personal opinions about someone or something or should he be allowed to have the right of freedom of speech?

Here’s what we think:

    I agree with Hippo Lord. Freedom of Expression and of Religion is a basic Human Right that, if denied, diminishes the free exchange of ideas that is essential to fostering a more peaceful world in which we all can live freely and without fear.
