Egyptian Blogger Praises Israel from Hiding
Sherif Gaber, in hiding from Egyptian police, creates a paean to Israel that puts Israeli hasbarah to shame.
Sherif Gaber, a blogger in hiding from Egyptian police, has created a paean to Israel that is so good, it puts most of Israeli hasbarah (public relations) to shame.
The video, embedded above, makes a mockery of Arab states that seek to destroy Israel, compares the Jewish state’s achievements with those of its Muslim neighbors and advocates for the Jews’ right to the land of Israel, even if not through Biblical reasoning.
Gaber was sentenced in February to one-year in prison for “insulting Islam and promoting atheism,” by a criminal court in the northeastern city of Ismailiya, where Gaber studies literature at university.
According to Middle East Eye, Gaber was studying at Suez Canal University in 2013 when teachers and fellow students reported him for supporting atheism online, supposedly by running a Facebook page called “The Atheists.”
On 27 October 2013, Gaber was arrested. At 3 a.m., a security convoy turned up on his street.
“[I couldn’t believe] the strength of the security … three armored cars and an army vehicle surrounded my house. I said there must be another Osama bin Laden living in the same [apartment block],” he joked. “I didn’t know I was that dangerous.”
