Event Description

Dear friend, atheist, agnostic, free thinker,

Waleed Khalid Hasayin (pen name: Waleed Al-Husseini), a 25 year old atheist activist, from the city of Qalqilya in the West Bank, Palestine, was arrested by the Palestinian authorities on October 31st, for his activities on the internet in criticizing Islam, using a satirical style of writing.

The authorities have also accused him, of creating a page in Facebook, talking in the name of Allah the Islamic God, using words similar to Allah's Quranic verses, in an attempt to mock God and reveal that his Quran isn't really that miraculous, as Muslims believe. This accusation if true, means only that Waleed is being persecuted for peacefully using his right to freedom of expression!!

News has surfaced that he is undergoing torture where he is being detained now :(( and that his life is at stake because he could very likely be facing a death sentence (at best prolonged imprisonment), and in addition, the angry Muslim masses are demanding his head, as is also evidenced by their comments on reports of his case in the internet. The Palestinian intelligence has reportedly told the media that he will be referred for a martial court!!! His legal position is not clear, and all evidence is pointing to that he will be brutally persecuted for merely expressing his atheistic views. Waleed has done no harm to no one. He was only using his pen and keyboard to criticize religions and expose the many problems in them.

Here are two of his blogs (English) (Arabic)

Waleed's case is of utmost importance because it also signifies the persecution of a whole minority class which is atheists and freethinkers in the Muslim world.

Please, Waleed needs our help now. Waleed needs the attention of the international media, international human rights organizations, plus strong legal assistance which his friends and supporters unfortunately are not able to provide for him now.

Here are links to the reports of his case in the media (in Arabic)

You can also read the fury in people's comments below the articles, with some demanding that he should be executed, and others that he should be tortured and crucified, etc.
