Re: Saudi Deported Home To Face Fallout Over Mohammed Tweets

I hope this case will help spur those of us in more enlightened societies to publicly and relentlessly denounce any state that executes people for the “crime” of apostasy. Forget about “thoughtcrime” in 1984 – “tweetcrime” in 2012 must have George Orwell rolling in his grave.
