Mohamed Hisham’s Escape From Egypt

From Mohamed:

I am Mohamed Hisham, and I am a public atheist in Egypt. The first step to a society that has freedom from religion is to stand up and be heard. I did that, appearing on TV twice, and immediately paid a price. Family, society, and now the state have declared themselves my enemy, with beatings at home, credible threats of death from across Egypt, and constant fear of jail my new reality. I can no longer peacefully express myself in this place. I can’t win here on my own. But with the help of my friend Troy Garnaut (who is running this campaign) and whichever organisations and donators hear this message, we plan on finding me a new home where I can live freely and warn about the dangers of Islam. Watch my short asylum plea, then see my TV appearances and the translated threats below. Help me (with a small donation to this gofundme or a share to raise awareness) get to where Enlightenment values and Human Rights still hold true, and I promise to add my voice to those in my new home seeking to prevent religion taking hold. Help me get to the West, so I can help. So I can live.

** Notes from Troy: Mohamed was referred to me by a source through my online presence promoting atheism. Funds will be dispersed to Mohamed and asylum lawyers we engage at his request for safety and security reasons. On arrival in the West all remaining funds will be transferred to Mohamed’s preferred account. See video authority by Mohamed below**
