Egypt 2.0: Court sentences mother and 7 children to 15 years in prison for converting to Christianity

Yeah, it sure was smart to hop on the "dump Mubarak" bandwagon after all of two days of protests. Because we have a real friend in Egypt now.

Nadia Mohamed Ali and her children Mohab, Maged, Sherif, Amira, Amir, and Nancy Ahmed Mohamed abdel-Wahab will spend 15 years in prison.
