Muslim Brotherhood ‘Crucifies’ Opponents

Pages: 1 2

Originally published by the Investigative Project on Terrorism

Last week in Egypt, when Muslim Brotherhood supporters terrorized the secular media, several Arabic websites—including Arab NewsAl Khabar NewsDostor Watany, and Egypt 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.

That there were attacks and violence—both in front of Egypt’s presidential palace and at major media facilities—is well-documented. An August 9 report by El Balad, a widely read Egyptian website, gives the details:

Last Wednesday, August 8, “thousands of the Muslim Brotherhood’s supporters” attacked 6-October’s media facilities, beat Khaled Salah—chief editor of the privately-owned and secular Youm 7 newspaper—prevented Yusif al-Hassani, an On TV broadcaster, from entering the building, and generally “terrorized the employees.”

El Balad adds that the supporters of Tawfik Okasha, another vocal critic of President Morsi—the one who widely disseminated the graphic video of a Muslim apostate being slaughtered to cries of “Allahu Akbar”—gathered around the presidential palace, only to be surrounded by Brotherhood supporters, who “attacked them with sticks, knives, and Molotov cocktails, crucifying some of them on trees, leading to the deaths of two and the wounding of dozens.”

Far from condemning these terrorists, Al Azhar, Egypt’s most authoritative Islamic institution, has just issued a fatwa calling for more violence and suppression, saying that “fighting participants in anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations planned for 24 August is a religious obligation.”

Most of the aforementioned Arabic sites point out that these attacks are part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s campaign to intimidate and thus censor Egypt’s secular media from exposing the group’s Islamist agenda, which Youm 7, On TV, and Okasha do daily. [Note: the latter’s channel was recently shut down, despite Morsi’s previous reassurances that “no station or media will be shut down in my era.”]

    "In reality, there is little reason to doubt this crucifixion story."

    Except for the fact that Mr. Ibrahim habitually passes on about one fake blowback story every week. Where are the pictures? The nifty Photoshop job presented above is not going to do.

    • Margaret

      And the video of the man getting his throat slit was fake? I couldn't even watch it, it was so terrible. He is exposing the darkness and one of so few brave enough to do so.

    • JeremyBeadleshand

      It's hard to get media coverage on anything in a country were the media is owned by the government, it's why the BBC never says anything bad about Muslims and hundreds of cases of child pedophilia Ended up unreported for years.

    • Ramzi2

      I read Arabic and I can tell you that the stories Mr. Ibrahim reports are absolutely true. Kudos to him for being one of the rare voice who exposes so much of these stories!

  • mburu chege

    Raymond Ibrahim is coptic christian from Egypt….only daft people would expect accurate stories from him….he hates muslims so much

    • JeremyBeadleshand

      I wonder why

    • Kufar Dawg

      Gee, I wonder why non-muslims might tend to hate muslims? Maybe it has something to do w/the institutionalized persecution, murder, rape etc. of non-muslims practiced by muslims in all islamic states?

    • Drakken

      Only useful idiots of the left and savage muslims who hate Western Civilization continue to push us kaffirs untill our backs are against the wall and then you will get another Vlad "The Impaler" Tepesh who understood you muslims all too well.

    • Ramzi2

      If non-Muslims are not qualified to report on Islam, then by your own logic, only 'daft people' would expect accurate stories from Muslims — since they hate non Muslims!

  • Yusuf

    ibrahim propaganda jobs are a bit too tiring even for hard-core zionists/anti-islamists…

    • Choi

      What's TIRING are JIHADI ATROCITIES!

    • Stan Lee

      Surely, "hard-core Zionists" must be living in Israel. Yet, such people aren't perpetrating capital crimes against Muslims living in Israel as Israeli citizens. Here we have the case of Coptics in mortal danger in the country of their fathers.
      Why do you accuse Mr. Ibrahim of propaganda?
      In other words, as far as you're concerned, there are no Muslim crimes against the Coptic Christian minority of Egypt.? I know that such crimes were very,very, rare under President Mubarak if even non-existent.
      Not so anymore. Can you justify such criminality?

    • Kufar Dawg

      Um, what happened to Egyptistan's formerly large and prosperous Jewish population again Yusuf Al Taqiyya?

  • MikeWood

    Looks like the Muslim Brotherhood damage limitation squad has been sent to FrontPage to deal with this one.

    • MotherGoose

      no kidding. what's up with that?

    • Kufar Dawg

      A lie a day is the prophet's way!

  • Andy

    Egypt and the world can thank Obama without whose support the MB would probably not have made much progress there.

    • Choi

      They would STILL BE ILLEGAL and KEPT IN CHECK by Mubarak.
      We DON'T have a Foreign Policy,WE HAVE OBAMA'S PREJUDICES & "NOTIONS".

  • Indioviejo

    Mr. Ibrahim does a great service to the world by keeping us informed of the Muslim savagery conducted daily on any body opposing group-think. This is what we should expect in the West as the savages extend their stealth Jihad.

    • Stan Lee

      The savagery has appeared in America, intermittently. It comes in the form of "honor killings." women and girls of Muslim families are the victims. After the killing is done, the killer/killers are quickly on their ways to Islamic countries, where they disappear into the populations.
      They then, are out of the reach of American law. We have a State Department, with embassies in most of those countries, that's yet another story!

      • Kufar Dawg

        There's evidence to suggest the Egyptian muslim bastage who honor killed his two daughters in the USA (I believe it was in Texas, but I might be mistaken) is actually still living in the USA under an assumed name.

  • Kuffar

    Obama's bretheren committing barbaric acts while shoveling in billions in US taxpayer dollors bank rolling their upcoming genocide. I wonder what Lara Logan thinks of her Jeffersonian patriots after she was gang raped by these SAVAGES.

    • Xanatos321

      Probably turned conservative. You know, the "liberal until raped" thing. Maybe she will listen to Pamela Gellert or Robert Spencer and realize that excited muslim mob is ALWAYS bad news no matter where and when.

    • Kufar Dawg

      What has happened to Lara Logan? She seems to have kinda disappeared from the lieberal MSM since she was gang-raped/groped by freedom loving islamonazis in Egyptistan. I guess it's her lieberal reward for being a victim.

  • Katharina Sri

    Mr. Raymond Ibrahim is the much needed brave voice of the much suffering Coptic Egyptians and other Christians, especially mass/individually murdered, raped and tortured in religious/ethnic Genocide under the most evil, Nazi and global Arabic-Islamic Jihad as led by the Saudi/Qatar kings-sponsored Muslim Brotherhood! And now, these evil savage Jihadist have even infiltrated the White House under that most treacherous that Dictator/Islamic Nazi Muslim Brotherhood-worshipping/Saudi-king bowing/War Criminal Obama and his evil REGIME!

  • LindaRivera

    This is a MASSIVE VICTORY for the Obama-Clinton administration. Behind the scenes, U.S. leaders worked to oust U.S. ally, moderate Mubarak, in order to bring to power U.S. leaders' top FAVORITES, the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is the DESTRUCTION of civilization and global Islamic conquest.

    Every Christian needs to ESCAPE Egypt! There is NO ONE to help the Christians and other innocents. No one! God help them!

  • Ghostwriter

    Sadly,Schlomind and mburu don't want to deal with reality. They just want to hate Jews. That's all they want to do.

    • Mburu

      this is sooooooooooooo tiring.

      Anyone who criticises israel or jews is labelled a jew-hater…..

      dont Jews take criticism too like everyone else or the "chosen people" are off-limits ??????????????
      mr. ghostwriter

      • Drakken

        Here I'll help you understand more clearly, screw the effing muslim savages palis, the muslim savages get exactly what they deserve and more, hopefully the Israelis quit screwing around with Gaza and pushes them into the sea and calls it a day.

  • Coptic John

    To the MB and their accomplices in US administration, I'm saying with Jeremiah " Render to them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands. Give them sorrow of heart, your curse to them. Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD. Lamentations 3:64-66

  • Ramzi2

    I read Arabic and I can tell you that the stories Mr. Ibrahim reports are absolutely true. Kudos to him for being one of the rare voice who exposes so much of these stories!

    Twenty first Century awareness will end the dispute between Sunni and Shiite; they both will agree that it is impossible for a sky god named Allah to exist. Only the Goddess Lady Luck will be worshipped; her presence is always felt. Mosques and other houses of worship can be converted into casinos; horny men will get a complimentary room with a naked lady called Luck, lonely women get her pimp.

    As the Muslim Brotherhood nominees have been chosen to represent the majority of the Egyptian Muslim people through a transparent elective process ,where is the problem if these representatives put a series of guidelines to protect the social cloth from being pierced by radical media attacks ,especially if the news writers were known to be submissive propaganda tools of the vanishing dark era of Israel's puppet: Mubarek

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      And what of the Copts? Do you want us to ignore what's happening to them?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Says the muslim friendly bigot who pretends Israel murders children.

  • http://iamiranaware.wordpress.com/ IranAware

    Then go back to the NYT then, if the reality scares you..

  • MotherGoose

    My doomed what?

  • Ricky Michael

    Here's the thing, if the tide of Islam is not turned, then some day it will be just as bad here in the US as it is in Egypt. And, If this starts to happen here, what makes you think that you who are atheists will escape their violence? You won't. You shall become an equal target with the same bulls-eye on your backs as the Christians have. If they had the chance, they would line us all up on crosses.

    Mr. Edwards, who is your real enemy? A truthful answer would have to be Islam.

  • Drakken

    If you believe the palis your dumber than a bag of hammers. The palis get exactly what they deserve, screwem!

  • Kufar Dawg

    The only "religious" war being waged today is by ISLAM against everyone not muslime. Don't believe me? Try going to any islamic state and publicly preaching any other faith (incl. atheism), see what happens.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    Sounds like the palestinian parents need to quit using their children as targets.

    You know the Israeli's hide their children in bomb shelters, do the palestinians? Or do they send them up to check points with bulky packs and pretend it's wasn't their doing?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    You never seek the truth.

    You are a hate filled bigot just here spouting iranian talking points. The way you sound today would indicate to me trista Parsi is nervous about Israel taking their military out.

  • Kufar Dawg

    Um, the Christians in Nigeria are being murdered w/abandon by your muslo-nazi compadres. Many more Christians have died than muslimes. But you know what? I couldn't care less how many muzzies die ya pig.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

    See, the hate and the drive towards violence rears it's head once again.

    Wee, isn't there a 'kill the Jews and Christians' website you can comment on so you don't offend normal thinking folks? It may be in farsi, but your handlers can help with that I'm sure.
