Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Begins Crucifying Opponents?
According to The Algemeiner, a Jewish newspaper, Egyptian sources reported the following:
“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.”
The mob attacks were also documented on the Egyptian website El Balad: “(On Aug. 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 also reports that when supporters of journalist Tawfik Okasha gathered at the presidential palace, they were surrounded by a Brotherhood mob 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.”
Clare Lopez of the Center for Security Policy told WND that crucifixion is a punishment commanded by the Quran, Sura 5:33, and is part of Shariah law. “It’s been a traditional punishment within Islam since the beginning. … So, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood haven’t the option not to include crucifixion within their legal code.”
