The Arab Spring takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood has run amok, with reports from several different media agencies that the radical Muslims have begun crucifying opponents of newly installed President Mohammed Morsi.
Last week in Egypt, when Muslim Brotherhood supporters terrorized the secular media, several Arabic websites—includingArab News, Al Khabar News, Dostor Watany, andEgypt Now—reported that people were being “crucified.” The relevant excerpt follows in translation:
A Sky News Arabic correspondent in Cairo confirmed that protestors belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others. Likewise, Muslim Brotherhood supporters locked the doors of the media production facilities of 6-October [a major media region in Cairo], where they proceeded to attack several popular journalists.
Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow Clare Lopez cited chapter and verse from the Quran to explain that crucifixions are not simply normal for Islam, they’re demanded.
“Crucifixion is a hadd punishment, stipulated in the Quran, Sura 5:33, and therefore an obligatory part of Shariah,” Lopez said. “It’s been a traditional punishment within Islam since the beginning, even though it’s not exclusively Islamic. The Romans used it too.
“So, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood haven’t the option to not include crucifixion within their legal code. It’s obligatory to comply with Shariah. And yes, it’s for shock value also to be sure,” Lopez said.
Lopez includes a warning for Egypt’s Christians and compares the coming treatment of the Christians to the Jews in Germany.
“The Copts must get out of Egypt as soon as possible – for the many millions who will not be able to get out, I expect things will continue to deteoriate…”, Lopez said.
Remember that the CES wanted the MB to win.
Remember the claims of democracy, then why are they enforcing the practices of Shariah law?
It is unraveling in Egypt as I feared it would. The citizens of Egypt are going to feel the full weight of radical Islamists and get exactly opposite the democracy and freedom that they protested for. This will ensure that Israel’s south border will no longer be stable and in fact it will become quite porous.
Why is the MSM of the USA not reporting this? I located a normal link on Drudge Report. Nothing on Fox, CNN, NYT, Washington Post, etc. I Googled & IXQuicked crucifixions in Egypt and pulled the 2 articles I reference and a handful of similar alternative news outlets that are reporting it. Remember the exhaustive coverage the so-called Arab Spring protesting received by the networks and MSM?
MSM = Main Stream Media
CES = chief empty suit = current president of the USA
