An Algerian blogger has been given a 10-year prison sentence for interviewing an Israeli official.
Merzoug Touati was convicted on Thursday of “incitement to non-armed gathering,” “foreign intelligence aiming at harming diplomatic ties,” and “incitement to gatherings and sit-ins in public spaces” by an Algerian court.
The interview was conducted with Hassan Kaabia, the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson for Arabic-speaking media.
Get a load of these whoppers by the Algerian media:
While the released video is largely about reforms to Algerian financial laws, The Annahar, an Algerian newspaper, came out with an article titled: “The blogger’s case exposes an international network to recruit Algerians to the Mossad.” The article included a map claiming to list Touati’s connections in Israel, and asserted that Touati aimed to undermine the stability of Algeria.
A Muslim talks to a Jew = Spy! = Traitor!
That's the psychotic level of Jew-hatred in the Islamic world where a simple interview with an Israeli Jew can land one in jail for a decade.
