In some parts of the world, even visiting Israel is a crime worthy of death (and at least the Zionist lobby is trying to do something about it):
The American Jewish Committee (AJC) today urged world leaders to press Bangladesh to end its persecution of Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, a Bangladeshi journalist whose trial for sedition set to begin Thursday, 12th October.
Choudhury, the editor of Blitz, the largest tabloid English-language weekly in Bangladesh was arrested in November 2003, when he tried to attend a conference in Israel. He was imprisoned, it is said, under extreme difficult conditions, and then released last year after efforts of United States Congressman Mark Kirk, among others, to seek his freedom.
One can’t but think, however, that the AJC is simply pleased that a journalist is railing against Islam, rather than facing the death penalty.
