Petition of Support for Nawal El Saadawi

Egyptian writer and novelist Nawal El Saadawi is facing another campaign of intimidation. A few years ago she faced accusations of apostasy and an attempt to separate her forcibly from her husband. Now a recent play "God resigns at the Summit Meeting" has angered the authorities of Al-Azhar who have threatened court action against her for apostasy and disrespect for the principles of Islam.
