Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood revives barbaric practice of crucifixion

Some critics refer to Muslims as still mired in the 14th century because of their barbaric practices of beheading, stoning, and treatment of women. Given the latest news coming out of Egypt, we need to dial the time machine even further back to the first century A.D. and before because the Muslim Brotherhood are executing political opponents and Christians by crucifying them.

The Romans did not invent crucifixions, but they perfected it as a form of torture and capital punishment designed to produce a slow death with maximum pain and suffering. It was one of the most disgraceful and cruel methods of execution and usually was reserved only for slaves, foreigners, revolutionaries, and the vilest of criminals.

Michael Carl reports for WND that, not content with “their man” Mohammed “Jerusalem will be the capital of Egypt” Morsi being elected President and seizing control of the military, the radical Muslim Brotherhood are employing the primitive method of crucifixion against Morsi’s opponents.

Several different Middle East media confirm that during a recent rampage, Muslim Brotherhood operatives “crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.”

Raymond Ibrahim, a fellow with the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorism, said the Arabic media identify the crucifixions as the work of “supporters,” “followers” and “partisans” of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is a pan-Islamic theocracy. The victims are “anyone who is resisting the new government,” as well as Egyptian Christians who are treated with extra brutality.

Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow Clare Lopez cited chapter and verse from the Quran to explain that crucifixions are not simply normal for Islam, they’re demanded. Lopez explains:

“Crucifixion is a hadd punishment, stipulated in the Quran, Sura 5:33, and therefore an obligatory part of Shariah. It’s been a traditional punishment within Islam since the beginning, even though it’s not exclusively Islamic. The Romans used it too. So, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood haven’t the option to not include crucifixion within their legal code. It’s obligatory to comply with Shariah. And yes, it’s for shock value also to be sure.”

Lopez warns Egypt’s Christians to leave, comparing the coming persecution to what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany: “The Copts must get out of Egypt as soon as possible – for the many millions who will not be able to get out, I expect things will continue to deteriorate – just as they did for Germany’s and Europe’s Jews from the 1930s onward. The warnings were there long before the ghettos and round-ups and one-way train trips to the concentration camps began in the 1940s.”

UPDATE (Aug. 23):

Since I first posted this story, doubts have been heaped on it — that the story is a hoax concocted by those devious “Jews.” Well, WND has a new article confirming the crucifixion report: http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/video-report-confirms-egyptian-crucifixions/

Here’s a video confirmation of the story by the Arabic-language Abu Dhabi-based Sky News Arabia :

Walid Shoebat, a former radicalized Muslim who converted to Christianity and is today an acknowledged terrorism expert and Arabic translator, told WND several Arab newspapers also referenced the crucifixions as a fact, and that a number of websites had reported on the situation, including one that posted an image of a man who had been targeted, but apparently survived with a gaping would in his side.

Al-Wai Al-Arabi (Arab Awakening) is another source that took a photo of a naked man covered with a blanket who was rescued from the crucifixion, said Shoebat, confirming that the Arabic text says victims were crucified on trees in front of the palace.

Shoebat said the Lawyers Union in Egypt investigated the story and demanded a probe, accusing Egypt’s new president Mohammed Morsi of preventing the Republican Guards from intervening to rescue what they termed Muslim Brotherhood gangs on “what seemed as the most despicable attack on civilians.”

  1. Why can’t the Muslims see they are working for the devil not God at all. Why can’t they see this, and repent?

  2. Jonathan, They have not evolved. Their ideology rules them emotionally and intellectually.

  3. I do hope the Copts remember what happened to the Jews. Some Jews did not believe it would happen, but when it did, they were stunned. LIke many Copts, many Jews, particularly in Germany, had families with a long history in that country; some for more than 900 years, and some who had a history in that region longer than many Germans. So it was only natural that they could not understand what would happen.
    God have mercy on them, and may they be safe.

  4. Barbaric people… evil through and through…

  5. So there you go Hillary and Obama. Let’s all sit down and have tea with these peaceful, freedom loving folks!

  6. I see your sarcasm. Obama knows how bad they are willingly not giving a damn. It looks like Obama is one of them with a disarming smile.

  7. Absolutely disgusting…

  8. Salaam,

    But President George Bush, an Evangelical Christian, is on record stating:

    “ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE”!

    WAS HE DRUNK WHEN HE SAID IT?

    IS HE A LIAR?

    CAN WE ASK MITT ROMNEY THE QUESTION:

    “IS ISLAM A RELIGION”?

    WE KNOW WHAT BARRY HUSSAIN “MUHAMMAD” OBAMA SAYS!

  9. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for informing us about this incredible and horrible practice. I am stunned, horrified and sick for the poor people subjected to this inhumane torture. Jesus, please help us! Jesus, please help us! Jesus, please help us!

  10. Nice going, president POS.

    • As president, Obama has access to the best advisers in the world..No American president could be this incompetent. So in the absence of any reasonable explanation,we must assume the disaster he has created here and across the world is going as he planned

      • Exactly.

        The true-believing Islamists need a united front against Israel, but the moderate Arab leaders have been standing in their way.

        Which is why, with the help of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the moderate leaders are being kicked to the curb in favor of those who are willing to play ball.

        I hope, for the sake of his country, that Mr. Netanyahu does not depend on the comrade Dear Ruler to be there for Israel when it matters most.

        -Dave

  11. 14th Century? They wanna party like it’s 799! Or earlier.

    Religion of peace, my butt.

  12. Who on this blog would give joandarc’s plea for Jesus’ help a thumbs down? He is our Lord and Savior. In Him we find salvation. He is the source of all solace. The Coptic Christians are being persecuted for their belief in Him, Their crucifixions are brutal and tragic.

  13. History repeats itself the Muslim brotherhood is the new Nazi party. Mohamed Morsi is becoming a monster dictator like Adolf Hitler. We are now endangering of repeating our history. We haven’t learned our lesson from Nazi Germany. Morsi already had his Reichstag event in the Sinai. The Copts are in just a danger as the Jews in Germany were in 1933. The holocaust didn’t start overnight and this won’t start overnight as well. This greatest threat to the world probably since Hitler. The Middle east like Europe of the 30’s is very unstable. Hitler started the most destructive conflict in history WW2 who who is going to stop Morsi from starting WW3. We see he wants to conquer Israel just as Hitler wanted to conquer Russia and Britain. I’ve never thought a new Hitler would come to power. We are seeing the rise of the 4Th Reich. Obama has been having his Neville Chamberlain moments.

  14. May God bless all being crucified. Please, Lord, stop this horrible carnage, now, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
    Obama having Neville Chamberlain moments? I considered Chamberlain to be stupid. No, Obama is cunning and deceptive. God help him for what he has done.

  15. A story made up by the Jewish media, eaten by the non educated Christian right wing nut job who has no critical thinking ability what so ever
