Sudanese Ex-Muslim Humanist fled to Egypt from his family who wanted to kill him, his family followed him there and UNHCR Egypt refuses to do anything to help him get Asylum. He was apprehended by the Muslim Brotherhood and tortured. He recently informed Twitter that he’ll likely be killed tomorrow.

He explained his family arrived in Egypt to hunt him down:

He says he will likely be killed tomorrow by his family under Sharia Law in Egypt:

If anyone is willing and able to spend a few minutes, I honestly don’t know how much help this can be, but if you think it is worth a shot: Contact your Congresspeople / Parliament, contact any human rights agency you know of that you think can be of help, contact whomever you think can be of help. I hope some organization can just get him somewhere safe from harm. Doesn’t have to be any specific country if immigration is a no-no for some people, just safe from being killed. If you think it’ll even slightly help, then please try. I’ve been emailing every international human rights organization that I know of and my Congresspeople.

Update: 

Well, his case just got murkier. The French Embassy is looking into his case and will act accordingly should they find his asylum case legitimate. Zineb El Rhazoui, the woman who translated his tweets and has been in contact with him, including sending him money to hide in an undisclosed location in Cairo until his family stops hunting him down, has withdrawn support because the French Embassy claim that the emails he shared with Zineb were faked and deny having ever communicated with him. Other Ex-Muslims found that he had tweets of himself liking Islamic content and opened up questions on why.

Her thread of tweets explaining the information, with a useful translation button at the bottom, can be found beginning here: https://twitter.com/ZinebElRhazoui/status/1114220927238144000

He claims that he liked the Islamic content from several years back to convince his family so that he wouldn’t be killed by them:

So, it is possible that he is lying, but it is also possible that he is being entirely sincere and was just desperate to prevent his family from killing him a few years back. He may have tried to show he was a sincere Muslim to prevent them from killing him. Situations like this are sudden and the need to respond to protect Ex-Muslims is urgent, but evidently some people do try to fake it for asylum so it is a question of which possibility is the truth and with limited time to determine it. The wait and see approach can lead to people being killed and that puts even more pressure on the entire situation. Despite that, I do believe – given the limited time – that asking international amnesty organizations and Congress/Parliamentary people to check into it is the right course of action given the consequences of what could happen. Zineb says if its determined to be fake, then it needs to be vigorously denounced because it makes sincere cases all the harder to gain asylum. The French Embassy is on standby and if they determine his case is sincere then they’ll help, but they’ve maintained a standby approach for now until more evidence accumulates. If he is a sincere case, then he should be safe in the previously mentioned undisclosed location that Zineb helped him get.

I’m not sure if this update will engender ire towards me in particular, but I would like to thank you all who shared an email or calls to your respective government and international organizations for responding in a timely manner and for helping. I will accept any condemnation since I did choose to make this post. I do still believe it is important to share and respond quickly when situations like this arise so that people who can help can verify the claims. We can only proceed with best of information that we have available, but I am trying to maintain as much accuracy and accountability to you all as possible for this post with this update. After listening to Ex-Muslims and reading more in-depth on Islam, I just feel disgusted by how much the most vulnerable people are being marginalized when talking about their own human rights, even being thrown out of social media when trying to talk about their human rights. I suppose I also felt it was a case similar to Sherif Gaber. In any case, he should be safe and the French Embassy is looking into his case and is ready to help him, if it’s found to be sincere. Thank you all again.

The Intolerance of Nerdfighteria: How Discussing Human Rights Gets You Muted And Banned

So, awhile back I attempted to share Ex-Muslims of North America content on Nerdfighteria Discords in an effort to join their communities while sharing information on an important human rights topic. When doing this, I was immediately accused of bigotry, when talking about human rights I was accused of making a strawman (even though no opposing argument was given nor any discernible information regarding any opposing argument), and I was told that I was posting on “incorrect channels” — the channels I selected were related to Politics and stated it was for divisive and controversial topics. Evidently, human rights wasn’t included in that package as I was muted by one Nerdfighteria community and the other refused to respond to my question of whether they valued the human rights of Ex-Muslims.

A part of me just didn’t want to believe that Nerdfighteria, a community that seemed so calm, compassionate, and open to polite communication of ideas could be so intolerant towards the human rights of some of the most vulnerable people in the world today who live in fear within their own societies for the crime of having their own opinions. So, I made and used an alternative account to check and see if I could open discussions about the human rights of Ex-Muslims who essentially have to live in fear for their very lives and the human rights abuses that women in Islamic majority communities suffer. I primarily did this because as far as cost-benefits analysis, the human rights of people should outweigh the woeful ideal of religious tolerance. If that seems like an excuse for “trolling” then I would honestly respond by pointing out that the human rights of these people and the ability to give their human rights issues a platform should be paramount to the public discourse. Just as we discuss Yazidi and Christian women being abused as sex slaves by ISIS, Ex-Muslims being hunted down and killed for the crime of freedom of thought is just as relevant of a human rights issue. Also, I find it astonishing and sickening that fellow Liberals can dismiss the human rights of these people so callously without any regard for what they’re condemning these people too. I suspect it’s because people don’t want to open the discussion on the hot topic of religion in order to protect their own religious traditions. As such, I suspect that their own religion is more important than people’s human rights. Furthermore, trolling seems to just be a meaningless personal attack for shutting down discussion whenever a topic that is personally uncomfortable comes up. It’s a meaningless term that ignores critical examination of the content in order to swipe away all nuanced discussion due to personal comfort levels. I personally feel a sense of frustration and disbelief that this crucial human rights issue hasn’t found a stronger acceptance in Left-leaning public discourse.

For this new attempt, I used another username and shared videos of human rights crimes.

Why Criticize Islam?

Islam is an innately violent, hateful, racist, sexist, and bigoted religion. It is the most barbaric of the Major religions.

Islam is a hateful and dangerous death cult. The Sharia (Islamic Divine Law of the Abrahamic God) must be accepted as unquestioned fact that nobody can argue against to be a Muslim. The only people allowed to interpret the Hadiths are so-called “Islamic Scholars” which are composed of people who know Arabic and are an Islamic theologian (Imam or some other priestly equivalent) so a “scholar” is a theologian who accepts the Quran as unquestioned fact that can’t be challenged. Obviously, there is no room for critical thinking there.

The average Muslim will then seek the Islamic “scholar’s” advice on how to live and the Theologian’s duty is to categorically assess what parts of the outside world are allowed or not allowed for a Muslim to follow. Two more rules further solidify Muslims largely being incapable of critical thinking or even thinking in general. Fitna, i.e. you can’t distress a Muslim for believing in Islam or make them question it. And finally, Bidah which is referred to as “invention” i.e. you can’t change any aspect of Islam with a new teaching or idea because the Quran is suppose to be the perfect book on how to live life for all-time for Muslims.

In effect, this religion categorically goes to war with all outside logic and reasoning so that Muslims learn only to value other Muslims. It’s a cult in every sense of the word. The highest authority is considered the Quran and Muslims must seek Imams or equivalent “Islamic scholars” for their opinions. Oh, and Muhammad is regarded as the perfect human being to model after.

Therefore, Muslims can’t possibly be critical thinkers, they’re largely incapable of thinking itself, and they threaten to harass, insult, and kill any and all who leave the faith of Islam and who make Muslims question it.

A few facts for you:
