Mubarak election

In preparation for the election this week, the Mubarak regime arrested 1400 Egyptian who committed no crimes and have not been charged with crimes, to my knowledge.   If this was another regime (which does not serve Israel) ,there would have been an uproar and Amnesty and HRW would have issued urgent reports.  But when the arrested are bearded or veiled, Western human rights organizations don't take notice.

PS A correction.  Nadim tells me that Human Rights Watch issued a report and that it is featured on the site.
