  1. And well-deserved too.

    I noticed this:

    Egyptian Judge Ejects Lawyer for Christian from Court

    ... Attorney Nabil Ghobreyal was expelled from the courtroom at Cairo’s Administrative Court following a heated argument with Judge Mohammad Ahmad Atyia. The dispute arose after Atyia refused to acknowledge the existence of legal documents detailing the successful attempt of a Muslim man to convert to the Baha’i faith. Ghobreyal had planned to submit the court records of the decision in support of his case [relating to a Muslim convert to Christianity].

  2. A well deserved recognition of this excellent blog!
