Raif Badawi, While Receiving 50 Lashes, Reportedly “Did Not Flinch”

Earlier today, Saudi blogger Raif Badawi was given 50 lashes (the first of his 1,000 lashes punishment) for the “crime” of “insulting Islam.”

I’m also encouraged by this report from @ElhamManea:

My god, that man is brave…

I also loved this beautiful cartoon by Kuwaiti cartoonist @wahabkw:

Stay strong, Raif. You’re in our thoughts.
