I've been following Salah Choudhury's horrendous case for years. Now, in Bangladesh, the intrepid and kindly journalist finally goes to court to fight for his life, charged with the crime of advocating ties with Israel. (Now, is that un-Islamic, or un-Islamo-fascist?) As he put it in a message to supporters, reported in the Jerusalem Post:
"Now my luck hangs in the balance of being either acquitted from the charges by the court or accorded capital punishment."
"But let us remain strong. Pray for me, for God is with us and we shall win," he said.
And boycott Bangladesh.
