Egyptian Islamists Attacking Christian Women for Not Wearing the Hijab

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Western Islamists like to claim that wearing the Hijab is a choice. It’s a choice like paying your taxes is a choice. It’s a choice like everything else in the Muslim world… either you do it or bad things happen to you

“Most of our people are afraid,” Father Mina Adel, a priest at the Church of Two Saints in Alexandria said. “Not a few are leaving – for America, Canada and Australia. Dozens of families from this church alone are trying to go too.”

Father Mina’s church has an important place in the history of the Arab Spring. It was struck by a car bomb on New Year’s Eve 2010, Egypt’s worst sectarian attack in recent decades, in which 23 people were killed.

“Salafis meet Christian girls in the street and order them to cover their hair,” Father Mina said. “Sometimes they hit them when they refuse.”

The Salafis have boasted of their strength in Alexandria and it’s clear that they already have their own religious police operating on the streets, with or without the sanction of the government, but also without its interference.

Volunteer “morality police” in Egypt have ordered taser weapons to help “defend” themselves against citizens whose behavior in public doesn’t align with Islamic teachings, according to a report.

The Egyptian force is acquiring 1,000 of the taser weapons to “promote virtue” on the streets and byways

Ahram reported that the first training session for volunteers who will be armed will be in the El-Mandara neighborhood in Alexandria, Egypt.

Just in case those women start to fight back.

    Egypt will never be the same again, and under Islam, will never go back. Thanks to Barack Obama, there's no secret that Egypt is now firmly in control by the Muslim Brotherhood, who are hard line Wahhab Salafists.

    "For Sunni Muslims, the patriarch of Islamic terrorism is Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab. He who was born in 1703 in the Arabian Peninsula and was a student of Ibn Taymiyah. Wahhabist Islam is known today as the most pure and authentic, and thus fundamental form of the religion. Muhammad Wahhab based his Islam on the Salaf, the earliest Muslim ancestors who were the Companions of Muhammad.

    The Salaf brought them the Quran, the Sira, Tarikh, and Hadith – Islam's oldest and most authoritative sources. Since Muhammad said that Islam could not change, Wahhab taught that anything which was not officially mandated by Muhammad and Allah had no place in the religion. It is why Wahhabists call themselves "Salafists," and why they are the best, most authentic Muslims.

    In direct contradiction to all who apply the "radical" label to the Islam of today's terrorists, the only way for Wahhab or Salaf Muslims to be practicing a corrupted version of Islam, is for Muhammad and his Companions to have gotten Islam wrong. And if that were true, the religion has no basis of any kind. The moment you come to grips with this simple, yet profound, truth, the connection between Islam and terror becomes clear."

    It seems the picture of bearded bozos wearing the table cloth on thier heads is a message
    of what "stupid has come to town"? Yes the asocial dandies start off with a deficit of cerebral
    glory, a fine club to belong to and they go out to beat up on girls, non-muslims, arm yourselves.
    Shame on Egypt, shame on the World…………………..William

      What Italian restaurant did they steal the tablecloths from?

      • WilliamJamesWard

        I don't know Bella but those idiots couldn't steal anything from any Italian restaurant I have_ever had the privilege of patronizing, probably swiped them from a laundry……………..William

        These mindless clones? I'm sure they raided the factory rather than risk exposure to foods of the infidel.

    It would be quick pragmatism stop brutality as Genghis Khan mode…Maybe the shortest road to restrain offensive bestiality ….is grabbing beard when cutting balls. These cowards must be stopped.
    Have a gun Egyptian women!

      "Have a gun Egyptian women!"

      I wouldn't mind giving 10,000 tasers to these crazies if we can arm and train every Muslim woman with handguns, and any woman living under Islamic governance of any kind. Lifetime supplies of ammo too.

    I wonder if these too are courtesy of Mr. Social Justice 0'Bama himself? His justification? Better taser weapons than firearms, for the morality police that is. Besides, he already gave them firearms.

    Acquiring tasers to enforce relegious law,eh. Sounds like torture devices to me.

      "Acquiring tasers to enforce relegious law,eh. Sounds like torture devices to me."

      This is a very good point. I'd have to see their training guidelines, but don't count on anyone giving a damn that isn't already considered an "Islam-o-phobe."

    Religious arrogance has a limit. The outrages grow and one day when retaliation comes these nasty "islamists" are going to get all the slaps in one cheek (as the Spanish saying goes). The clock is ticking
