Monem: first blog-post from prison

The Egyptian blogger Abdel-Monem Mahmoud managed to smuggle his first blog-post from his prison cell in Torah Mahkoum where he is being detained for a renewable term of fifteen days: “Despite all what happened from prison, torture, corruption and poverty; I am still in love with you Egypt. I might have thought of leaving you but I can never hate you. I love you Egypt and I want you free. I will continue to blog, write, and demonstrate until you are set-free.Nora Younis has posted a translation of the blog-post.
