Give Walid Husayin your support
A West Bank blogger faces a possible life sentence for insulting Islam and Prophet Muhammad.
We call the Palestinian authority to release immediately Walid Husayin from prison. The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as “the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression.”.
Nobody should be arrested or jailed for saying what they think when it is not incitement or ” hate speech “. Expressing a belief in Atheism or against any religion or belief is not a crime.
