A number of Arabic media outlets have reported the crucifixion of political opponents of Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi outside the presidential palace, according to WorldNet Daily.
Computer translations of several Arabic news websites seem to support WND’s report.
According to the Arabic reports, opponents of Morsi had been crucified and others had been publicly attacked and beaten during a recent rampage by Muslim Brotherhood “partisans.”
The violence apparently began as mobs surrounded a Cairo media center last week in anger about criticism of Morsi’s dismissal of military leaders and the Brotherhood’s securing of power.
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.”
In June, President Obama told the newly elected Morsi that the United States would stand by Egypt, despite calls by conservatives like Allen West to denounce the “democratic” election results.
A year earlier, Obama had described the so-called “Arab Spring” uprisings that were being fomented by the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies as “a historic opportunity” for the U.S. “to pursue the world as it should be.”
He said America must promote “change that advances self-determination and opportunity.”
The proof of Obama’s naivete and incompetence is now laid bare for all the world to see. The Arab Spring that his Administration promoted and supported publicly, politically, militarily and financially is revealing itself for what it has been all along, a bloodthirsty bid for naked power by fanatical savages.
The world is far the worse today for Obama’s so-called leadership.
