"Reform": Egyptian Sentenced to 3 Years for Mocking Islam Online

Yeah, I know what I just said about the choices we have in the Arab world. But still, I can be depressed about this if I want:

Egypt’s state media says a Cairo court has sentenced a man to three years in prison for postings on Facebook deemed to be inciting sectarianism and in contempt of Islam.

The MENA state news agency said Saturday a the misdemeanor court found Ayman Mansour had intentionally mocked Islam and used “outrageous and scurrilous” language in describing the religion’s holy book, the Quran, and its prophet and believers.

I used to get really angry over stuff like this, but if I got angry every time someone was oppressed in the name of Islam I wouldn't be able to function.
