ISIS terrorists in Egypt.

It’s simply a matter of historical fact that Christianity predates Islam in Egypt by at least 600 years.

Guilty: Egyptian Lawyer Calls for Raping Women in Ripped Jeans a ‘National Duty’

a

Late last October, Egyptian lawyer Nabih al-Wahsh appeared on the Al Assema (The Capital) network to discuss a proposed anti-prostitution law with Cairo-based civil rights activist Abeer Suleiman.f5003775872dedbd688dc2463b673a82

Keep in mind, an Egyptian civil rights activist is light years separated from the Western definition.

With that aside, Islamic fundamentalist al-Wahsh flew off in a tirade of, well… Islamic fundamentalist proportions.

In mid-freak-out, a frenzied al-Wahsh let slip the innermost thoughts of your average 7th century Islamist.

Sadly for the good lawyer, the Muslim Brotherhood is no longer calling the shots in Egypt.

As reported by London’s The Daily Mail;

An Egyptian lawyer has been handed a three-year prison sentence for saying it was men’s ‘national duty’ to rape women wearing tight, ripped jeans.

Nabih al-Wahsh said that if a woman wore such trousers she deserved to be sexually assaulted and harassed.

His comments during a television programme had provoked outrage and complaints to the state prosecutor, who decided to put him on trial.

The prosecution charged him with ‘publicly inciting to flout the law’ and ‘spreading with malice reports and statements meant to perturb public order… and harm the public interest’.

Wahsh was on Saturday sentenced in absentia as he didn’t show up to his hearing after being released on bail. The sentence can be appealed.

Religion of Peace 36-Hour Alert: Axe attack in Germany, Priest Killed in Egypt, Mother & Daughters Stabbed in France

Endangered species - Egyptian-Christian woman publicly proclaiming her Faith.
Endangered species – Christian woman in Egypt publicly proclaiming her Faith.

George W. Bush originated the phrase “Religion of Peace”. Barack Obama certainly used the same sound byte a number of times.

But in a news cycle that seen major Muslim jihadist terrorist attacks throughout the world as well as anti-cop homegrown terrorists are massacring police officers across the nation, much is being missed. Sadly, these other newsworthy events around the world are getting lost in the mass media shuffle.

Egyptian president calls for ‘unified Arab force’ to battle ISIS

EgyptMilitary

Despite Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi having been described as a devout Muslim, he’s made it clear he has very little love for the Islamic jihadist terrorist organization that now goes by the nom du terrorisme of the Islamic State (IS). The North African leader’s disdain for the hard core shari’a fundamentalists is to such a degree, he’s called for a pan-Arab military organization to counter the terrorists growing threat.

As reported by CNN via KSPR (of Springfield, Missouri) on Feb. 23, 2015, and also by the Jerusalem Post on Feb. 24, 2015, President al-Sisi took to the airwaves as he said in a televised speech to the nation, “The need for a unified Arab force is growing and becoming more pressing every day.” Without giving specifics of his call for the Arab World to unite to his banner, al-Sisi reportedly told his nation that Jordan and the United Arab Emirates have already come on-board in a military union.

While the issue of ground troops has yet to be made public, those in military circles have made clear that air power alone will never defeat the threat posed by Islamo-terrorists. CNN military analyst and retired Army Maj. Gen. James “Spider” Marks stated “it’s about time” an Arab leader the likes of President al-Sisi finally went public in calling on the Muslim World to destroy ISIS, “Strategically and politically for the region, this is a big deal, and it’s absolutely the right first step.”

As noted by Foreign Affairs magazine on Sept. 15, 2014, when Barack Obama ordered the U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq in late 2011, ISIS had as few as 800 members in the embattled nation. Since Obama’s about face in Iraq, ISIS has taken control of huge tracts of land in Iraq, Syria and Libya. Meanwhile, the total strength has been estimated by the Russians at 70,000, while the Kurds approximate their total under arms at 200,000. Various reports have also bubbled to the surface stating that the terrorist network has operatives as far away as the Philippines and Sweden, to as close as Yemen and Lebanon.

Victims of ISIS terror; Twenty one slain Egyptians declared saints and martyrs

Canonized martyrs for the Faith.

In what may be a thinly veiled message to the ISIS terror network that they aren’t easily cowed, the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria has declared the 21 murdered Christians to officially be added to the Church calender as both saints and martyrs. Deemed “The 21 Coptic New Martyrs of Libya,” the Coptic Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and Apostolic See of St. Mark very well may may have signaled to the Cairo government that the 60 million Copts world-wide are solidly behind President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s fight against Islamic Jihadism.

Historic moment; Muslim leader avenges murdered Christians

Egyptian Christians stand with President al-Sisi against ISIS.

In what many Western and Middle Eastern Christians have been asking for years, especially since the rise of al-Qaeda and ISIS, a leader of a predominantly Muslim nation has militarily hammered the Islamic Jihadists specifically to avenge the murder of Christians. As reported by CNN and also by The New York Times, both on Feb. 16, 2015, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has authorized at least two different waves of Egyptian fighter-bomber aircraft to attack ISIS troop concentrations and facilities to avenge the tortuous execution of Christians of Egyptian citizenship.

Egyptian ‘wife rape’ fatwa issued; Salafist cleric silenced

With quite the history of issuing his share of über-fundamentalist Islamic fatwas (religious rulings), Egypt’s Sheikh Yasser Burhami’s latest edict may have landed him in more hot water than he’s prepared to deal with. As reported on 25 April, 2014 by the Royal House of Saud-owned Al Arabiya news portal (of the United Arab Emirates), and also by the Nigerian-based Naij news service, the Islamic cleric is also the Vice President of the influential and notoriously hard-core Al-Da’wa Al-Salafiya (ultra-orthodox Salafist) Movement.

Egyptian Fatwa: Women who swim in the ocean guilty of adultery

Bang your head. Complete with "prayer bump" from slamming their heads on the ground during prayer, Cairo police on patrol.

“Standard Sharia Law punishment for adultery for a woman is slowly stoning her to death…”

India Today published on Nov. 28, 2013 that a listing has recently been compiled in Egypt of some of the more puritanical Islamic Fatwa’s issued during the presidency of now deposed leader Mohamed Morsi.

During Morsi’s brief stint as president, the Muslim Brotherhood and the equally violently straight laced Salafists issued blatantly anti-women fatwas on a regular basis.

Arguably leading the list was the Fatwa (Islamic religious ruling) issued that noted the Arab word for “sea” is masculine, therefore, if and when sea water comes into contact with a married woman’s pelvic area, she literally committed adultery.
