And #Egypt is indeed next after #Tunisia

I was just wondering this morning whether the political assassinations will start in Egypt after Tunisia or whether they already started with the murder of young protesters. No need to ask now because Salafist Sheikh Mahmoud Shaaban issued a fatwa calling for the murder of National salvation front leaders !!

Yes Sheikh Mahmoud Shaaban is saying that it is legal to kill ElBaradei and Sabbahi because they want to bring down President Morsi !! "Both made it clear that they do not want that"
You must know that the Muslim brotherhood supporters and members in Egypt are defending their counterparts in Tunisia crazily claiming that the Islamists did not do it but rather the counter revolution in Tunisia !!
I do not need to speak about the comments that wish the same fate of Belaid to all President Morsi's opponents.
Anyhow ElBaradei was alarmed from this , he has to because it concerns his life. Here is his tweet.

Nader Bakkar , the official spokesperson of Al Nour Party demanded Al Azhar to investigate Mahmoud Shaaban condemning the Fatwa. It is worth to mention several Egyptian figures in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s were victims of similar fatwas. Some of them paid their lives for like Farag Fouad.

  1. Is it not a crime in Egypt to incite murder? This is a serious question. Can anyone answer it?

  4. Thank you @Anonymous and @Sarah. Perhaps this sort of thing needs to be focused on. Members of parliament lobbied. Letters to the press. Appeals to the chief prosecutor. What are radical opposition lawyers doing? I understand that you have a dysfunctional system, so do we in the UK, but law is like a muscle, it only gets strong when used. This guy needs to be sorted out. He should be arrested and tried.

  5. Islam is the real problem, and not only in Egypt; for any crime you wish to justify, the Noble Koran has a verse to sanctify it. And the Hadith/Sunnah will fill in any missing crimes you might need- just ask the Prophet.

  6. Not if you are an Islamist- ANYTHING can be justified by reference to the Holy books.

  7. @Charlie Darwin This is offensive nonsense. Secular Atheism in the form of Stalinism, Maoism or under Pol Pot justified massive crimes. Christianity has done the same. Nazi Germany was a culture that inherited Enlightenment values. Recent American and British leaders are war criminals, by any rational reading of international law. They have all justified crimes in the names of their religions and ideologies. Apply the standards you apply to Islam across the board and you will run out of scope for prejudice.

    1. So what- a list of atrocities somehow justifies Islamic savagery? Secular Atheism? Tyrants do their evil regardless of atheism or religion as you well know. You need to inform yourself about moral relativism, and the tu quoque fallacy, Roger: Additionally you need to know more of Islam-

    2. Just HOW do you justify your views after seeing the appalling content of this video?

    3. "Tyrants do their evil regardless of atheism or religion"
      Precisely. So why are you banging on about this particular religion then?

    4. This 'religion' is the motivator for ALL the violence going on in the Arab world right now and if you dispute this then there's no point discussing with one who will not see the truth. How much do you know about Islam??

    5. And Islamic extremists do THEIR evil in the name of Islam, justifying it by verses from their scriptures. Don't you see the difference?

      As for 'offensive' may I suggest that amputation, stoning, crucifixion, beheading, forced marriage of little girls to old men and other quaint Islamic customs are maybe a little 'offensive'??

  8. Islam is to peace as slavery is to employment. From a distance they make look similiar but they are not. Islam is fascism brought to a cosmic lvel, pure evil, pure oppression, pure slavery, pure hate and eventually pure death. Remember the muslim saying" "We love death as they (The Jews, weterners, etc.) love Life.

    1. Absolutely right, well expressed. It must be true that the great majority of decent Muslims (and I know a good many) are completely unaware of the contents of the Koran, or have been brainwashed into ignoring much of it. What do you think?

  9. Arutz Sheva has this story Video: Egyptian Salafi Cleric Calls to Kill Opposition Leaders and they have a version of the video with English subtitles.

  10. Is no one going to challenge this? I am an atheist and I find this kind of talk unacceptable. We had lies like these spewed from the Nazis about Jews 80 years ago and millions were murdered as a direct result of it.

    1. I don't get what your viewpoint is? Defensive of Islam yet rightly outraged by this video- you're confusing me! I also am atheist, and most determinedly so regarding Islam. Other beliefs are also disagreeable in some ways but none as supremacist, racist or violent as the ROP. Interested to read your response...

    2. My viewpoint is Liberal (John Stuart Mill). It is what people do that matters, not the thoughts they hold. For the former we have sanctions of law, national and international, for the latter we must have freedom. In my view this cleric has broken the law by inciting murder and should be tried for it. There are all kinds of things said by the Great Poetic Irrationalities (shall we call them). Are you suggesting we need some kind of planetary thought police or book burning agency to close down these thoughts? You have a right to be offensive about Islam. But it is none the less offensive and crass. There is little difference that I can see between your viewpoint on Islam and the Salafist Wahabist viewpoint on Liberalism and democracy. We need to calm down and concentrate on what people do. The beheading of a Shri Lankhan servant by the Saudis and the beating to death of Baha Mousa by the British Army, or the attack on the Twin Towers and the penetration bombing of a shelter in Baghdad are equally crimes. You have a bee in your bonnet me old mucker. Calm down dear.

  11. Oh Dear we are getting confused. My reply "Is no one going to challenge this" was to Anon "Islam is to peace". I have already opposed the cleric up above. Frankly, I can't stand any of you....Can't you all find some other planet?
