Homicide Rates in Egypt Tripled Since Muslim Brotherhood Takeover


Robert Johnson at Business Insider takes us on a brief tour of the and improved Egypt. The democratically Islamist Egypt that went from a somewhat functioning country to a completely failed state whose leaders do nothing but spew bigotry and encourage their followers to engage in violence.

Homicide rates have tripled since 2011. The number of armed robberies rose from 233 in 2010 to 2,807 in 2012.

That’s more than a tenfold increase. It’s an impressive achievement. I’m not sure we could pull that off even if we combined Detroit, New Orleans and Oakland into one giant city.

Many ‘beat cops’ still carry outdated weapons like this 1958 Hungarian pistol, lack adequate ammunition, and refuse to carry issued sidearms on patrol for fear of being robbed. The Muslim Brotherhood’s handpicked officers get new weapons, radios, and nearly twice the pay.

The Brotherhood has proposed laws reducing Egypt’s legal age of marriage to 13-years-old. Some party officials indicate marriage at nine years of age is perfectly acceptable. Temporary marriages between young women and foreigners lasting often just days have become increasingly common. Desperate parents sell daughters for as little as $450.

There are up to 50,000 homeless youths still roaming Cairo. Forced to steal and beg to survive, they significantly add to the crime problem. The World Health Organization estimates there are 1 million homeless Egyptian children.

Cairo faces frequent gasoline shortages and long lines at filling stations when gas is available. Public services like road maintenance are often non-existent.

It will take massive outrage against the Muslim Brotherhood by the Egyptian people to reverse the damage. Public beatings and stabbings like this are unfortunately not enough to incite action for change. Egyptians are just too busy trying to survive.

The Arab Spring sure worked out well. We should repeat it in Syria and let the Muslim Brotherhood take over as many other countries as we can. Including the United States.

    Wow! So glad the Arab Spring worked out. So glad that our president is arming these thugs and giving them money. Disgusting.

    The fact of the matter is that anyone who is not Islamic enough is ripe for murder, and this does not even include those who are non-Muslims, especially the highly victimized Copts.

    How many times, and how many ways, does one need to state:yes, under Sharia Law more brutality occurs, than not. The Brotherhood Mafia brooks no dissent, and every Islamist group, in one way or another, is part of its umbrella. This is why wherever Islam reigns supreme bloodshed follows.

    And if NOT for the Islamist-in-Chief's dictates to Mubarak, GO NOW, Egypt would be less of a basket case, and the region wouldn't be exploding to the degree that it is – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/13/coming-full-c

    Not only is Obama Inc destroying America, but they are setting fires all over the Mid East.

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    Parents are selling their daughters for $450? That's a lot. Wait til it gets to $2 and it will! When Egypt finally and completely collapses, the U.S. will take in millions of them. And then WE in the U.S. will collapse.

  • And So It Goes…

    Egypt as it once existed is gone. Syria as it once existed is gone. Libya as it once existed is gone. Tunisia, Yemen, Algeria, gone, gone, gone. Somalia, Mali, Iraq – all gone. The entire Arab world is disintegrating before our very eyes, ladies and gentlemen. All that will be left is roving gangs of thugs who will stoop to the lowest possible level of human depravity. We must gird ourselves and strengthen our resolve while we watch a good part of the world empty out. Sending them aid or weapons is not only useless, it contributes to the problem of thuggery, corruption and murder and only strengthens the cruel and violent. We are witnessing the descent into hell of people who adamantly refused to change and enter modernity and the civilized world and there is nothing we can and should do about it.

    Daniel Greenfield, do you think this news and the statistics will ever reach the media of the Arab world — assuming there is still an organized media left in them? My feeling is that as soon as the news hits the borders of any Muslim country, particularly an Arab one, it gets magically reversed: "Muslim Brotherhood eliminates theft, murder, prostitution, and gangs. Streets are spotless, traffic problems vanish, tourists return, money flows, hunger is eliminated and all is well in dar al Islam. May peace be upon you."

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    "50,000 homeless youth roaming Cairo…" One would have to be insane to go to Egypt now. Has tourism completely disappeared or are there thrill seekers wanting to play a real game of cat and mouse? Survival of the fittest? Crossing the street and getting to the other side?

    When the MB runs out of people in their country to murder they will likely start killing people outside their country. It appears that these people will not be satisfied with a life without mortal enemies. The USA needs to stop funding people that want to kill us. Obama either. Does not get it or he wants us to fail.

    The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in America Barak Hussein Sadam Benghazi Obama is
    responsible for all that has happened and the ensuing bloodshed and his reply to such and
    acusation "What me worry?"……..We will see most of Europe burn this Summer…………William

    Such a beatiful country, with such impressive heritage, the suez canal, and those amazing impossible-pyramids — all of them stolen from the origional Xtian Copts & and thrown away for a satanic moon-god !

    All classic examples of what islam achieves when it invades great nations !

  • AntiIslam1

    I still remember the celebration and the dance on the grave when you helped the islamists wreck Libya and kill Gaddafi. Now it is suddenly a bad thing? The very definition of hypocrisy.

    It obvious that the new rulers will ignore all former agreements on border and immigration control and let EU be flooded with islamist "missionaries". And I personally place the blame 100% on US of A, France and UK. Should there be a terrorist attack anywhere near I live I will start hunting down the aforementioned. Should there be a terrorist attack anywhere in those terrorism supporting filthholes I will point a finger and laugh.
