* A prominent atheist video blogger says he has given up hope on life in Egypt and has launched a crowdfunding page called ‘Help Me Escape Egypt’ to aid him in purchasing another nationality. Gaber says he needs $100 000 to obtain nationality from a place such as the Caribbean island nation of Dominica. He has been repeatedly detained by authorities accusing him of blasphemy, which is sometimes prosecuted in Egypt under laws against ‘insulting religion.’
