Egypt orders Islamist detained for insulting Christianity
2013-02-18
[Al Ahram] Egypt's state prosecutor ordered on Sunday an bad boy Islamic preacher tossed in the calaboose
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
for questioning on suspicion of insulting religion after a complaint from a Christian activist, a judicial source said.

The preacher Ahmed Abdullah, known as Abu Islam, is already on trial for tearing up a bible during a protest outside the American embassy in Cairo in September over a short film made in the United States that insulted the Prophet Mohammed.

The latest probe came after a complaint filed by Coptic Christian activist Nagib Gibrail who accused Abu Islam of insulting Christians on a television show.

Egyptian law forbids insults against religion, allowing police in the past to arrest Shiite Moslems and Christians for alleged slights against Islam.
