The Alarabiya Egypt roundup

Hmm.. so what do the AlArabiya people have to say about us today?

Let's see, shall we?

 A state of martial law is declared in the City of Asna because 2 Christian males were caught engaging in "illicit activities" with a muslim female. The people suspected that the 2 christian guys were having sex with the female in a store, so they attacked the store, apprehended the 2 guys, sent the girl home to her family, burned down the shop they were in and destroyed the glassfront of the Pharmacy they worked in. The article says that the mob was furious because the 2 guys promsied the girl 100 EGP for "sexually pleasing them", which means the girl is a prostitute. Moral of the story? Don;t have sex with prostitutes from a different religion, that's just asking for trouble. Unless they are christian prostitutes. Those are fair game!

The Egyptian authorities have just arrested a group of people that allegedly belong to a new Islamic sect called the Ahabash. They are 22, 8 were arrested and 14 were getting interrogated as we speak, including 3 lebanese and get this, one Khazakhestani. The sect supposidly encourages getting blessings from Cemeteries and tombs of dead people and praying without washing up first. The charges they are being investigated with include: 1) being memebrs of an unauthorized organization, 2) disdain for religion and- my personal favorite- 3) carrying printed materials that contains their ideological beliefs, that could be read by other people later on. Reading. Very bad for you!

Egyptian Islamic Intellectual "Dr." Zaghloul Al Naggar- lovingly dubbed Zaghloul "el Fashar", because he just makes shit up all the time- is accusing the Christian church of actively trying to convert Muslims to christianity, which is very rude according to him. Actually, his exact words were "Provocation" and "attack on Islam". He claims that bitching about religious conversion from Islam to christianity is legitimate and not hypocritical at all since Muslims don't actively try to convert people while christians seem to have an organized effort doing so, and that most people convert to Islam because they are drawn to it themselves, while those who convert to christianity are doing it out of 1) opportunisms, 2) abduction and 3) Lies. But remember, he is not provoking or attacking christians. He is just telling it how it is.

And finally, a fantastic story of love, idiocy and murder, where a man killed his bride on her wedding night, actually stabbed her to death, because he couldn't break her hymen, and thus thought it wasn't there. Enraged that he married a "used woman", Mr. 2 inch Penis proceeded to stab her and slit her throat, and then ran away. He was later apprehended, and taken to jail, where he was informed that the autopsy report showed that the girl indeed was a virgin and with an intact hymen and that he is a colossal fucking asshole. He is now serving a Life sentence in egyptian prisons, where- if there is a kind and just god- he will get analy raped for the remainder of his years for what he did.

Now, you don't think that the AlArabiya people are slightly biased against Egypt, do you? Nahh..that would be crazy conspiracy talk, right? Not intentional at all, No? 

Right!

    Boy, you have to be a mind reader, assuming there’s a mind to read.

    “He is now serving a Life sentence in egyptian prisons”

    Shouldn’t he be in a secure mental hospital? He is clearly insane.
