"As some of you know already, our friend 'Waleed Al Husseini' who is an active writer and believer in Human Rights disappeared a few days ago, then reports on websites which are affiliated to fatih organisation started appearing that he has been arrested by the Palestinian Authorities for his "non religious" or atheist activities on Facebook...,
Latest news we received is that he is in prison - West Bank Palestinian security agencies arrested him, and he could be facing execution or 30 years in prison!
We need to prepare a campaign, sign a petition, call peoplethat may help him out of the danger he's in."

"Last week --October 31 - November 6, 2010-- Waleed Al Huseini, a 26 year old blogger and an activist, was arrested in the West Bank city of Qalqilya by the authorities there for his atheist activism. His friends stopped hearing from him last week, then several posts made on Arabic forum site posted by users said that he was arrested."

Waleed Al-Husseini writes: "Muslims often ask me why I left Islam. What strikes me is that Muslims can't seem to understand that renouncing Islam is a choice offered to everyone and that anyone has the right to do so. They believe anyone who leaves Islam is an agent or a spy for a Western State, namely the Jewish State, and that they get paid bundles of money by the governments of these countries and their secret services. They actually don't get that people are free to think and believe in whatever suits them."
