MP Mahmoud Amer, member of the Muslim Brotherhood Parliamentary bloc and member of the Human Rights Committee in the Parliament, stressed that lost freedoms in Egypt will only be restored with serious national wills seeking reform and change via peaceful means.

 

A report on human rights has accused the "internet" of becoming a democratic "snowball" which moves strongly in the Arab world, without being stopped by some Arab regimes, as it blocks, controls, arrests and tortures its users. It stressed that internet became "clearly biased" to democracy and freedom of expression in governments of most repressive countries in the world including Egypt.

 

The report – published by the Arab Network for Human Right – entitled "One Social Network with a Rebellious Message" looks into the freedom of internet usage in 20 Arab countries. It also examines four tools (Blogs, Facebook, Twitter and You Tube) that the Arab internet users, especially young ones, use to fight for their right of free expression and expose corruption and repression in the Arab world.

 

 In his statement to the website theparliament.com, Amer agreed that the internet was one of the tools which motivated citizens to express their opinion in a way that needs support, guidance and increasing the awareness to fall in the interest of the country first and foremost. He stressed that the repression of the government will soon vanish due to nations moving towards restoration of their freedom in a peacefully and positively.
