The Egyptian state put Abdel Karim, a freethinking blogger, in jail. Now as the court
circus hearing approaches, we get this jaw-dropping news:
Abdel Karim's father announced today that he is disowning Abdel Karim, and that he would like to see Sharia Law applied to his son, in which he would have 3 days to repent at the end of which if he is not repentant, he would be killed.
If Karim is murdered, then this will be, in effect, an honor killing.
