You need to know that what you say on Facebook can be used against you. Mona el-Mazboh, a tourist visiting Egypt from Lebanon is now in jail for 8 years for sharing her experience in Egypt with the social media world.
Mona el-Mazboh was arrested at Cairo airport at the end of her stay in Egypt after a 10-minute video in which she called Egypt a “son of a bitch country” went viral on social media.
The 24-year-old Mazboh complains of being sexually harassed by taxi drivers and young men in the street, as well as poor restaurant service during the holy month of Ramadan and an incident in which money was stolen from her during a previous stay.
The Obama-backed government that took power during the “Arab Spring” would rather suppress the truth than deal with the country’s problems.
A Cairo court found her guilty of deliberately spreading false rumours that would harm society, attacking religion, and public indecency, judicial sources said.
Quick Tip: In the light of attempts to censor free speech in the USA for similar reasons, this story should alarm every American. As a result, every Facebook user should be conscious of the fact that what they say on Facebook, especially if it’s not politically correct, even if it’s true, can adversely affect their lives.
