Yemeni journalist gets six years hard labor for telling the truth about the regime

The other day I told you about New Jersey mom Jane Novak and her relentless blogging on the subject of the treacherous Yemeni regime and their persecution of journalist Abdul Karim al-Khaiwani. Al-Khaiwani faced the death penalty, and he might very well have gotten it without international coverage of Jane’s campaign.

Still, he got six years hard labor.

Thank God for the free press in this country.

If you want to see what it was that got al-Khaiwani in so much trouble, and what the Yemeni government is punishing him for exposing, you can check it out at the Jawa Report. But be warned–the photographic evidence of Yemen’s “Sudan-like” jihad against its own people that al-Khaiwani wrote about is horrifying and not for the squeamish.

Jane’s blog is here, and she’s still fighting.
