Crucifixion and Mob Rule In Egypt

By Theodore Shoebat

It was reported just today, by Raymond Ibrahim, that the Muslim Brotherhood has crucified people, accused of being against Muhammad Morsi, naked and on trees in front of the presidential palace. Raymond Ibrahim reports:

El Balad adds that the supporters of Tawfik Okasha, another vocal critic of President Morsi—the one who widely disseminated the graphic video of a Muslim apostate being slaughtered to cries of “Allahu Akbar”—gathered around the presidential palace, only to be surrounded by Brotherhood supporters, 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.”

Al-Azhar, the major university of the Islamic world, released a fatwa just after this event, which stated that “fighting participants in anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations planned for 24 August is a religious obligation.”

This violence is in fact sanctioned by the Koran, in which it states thus:–

“The punishment of anyone who fight against Allah and His apostle and do mischief in the land is to be killed or crucified or to have their hands and feet from opposite ends or be banished from the land.” (Quran: The table spread)

From this, we can conclude that as long as the Muslim Brotherhood has power over Egypt, this violence will only get worse, and despotism will be the authority of the nation.
