Egyptian general admits 'virginity checks' conducted on protesters
CNN ^ | 5/30/11 | Shahira Amin

Posted on 05/30/2011 9:21:58 PM PDT by Nachum

A senior Egyptian general admits that "virginity checks" were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring, the first such admission after previous denials by military authorities. The allegations arose in an Amnesty International report, published weeks after the March 9 protest. It claimed female demonstrators were beaten, given electric shocks, strip-searched, threatened with prostitution charges and forced to submit to virginity checks. At that time, Maj. Amr Imam said 17 women had been arrested but denied allegations of torture or "virginity tests."

Lord knows there are plenty of things I get riled up about lately concerning our newly elected ‘Republican controlled’ congress but every time I see a story like this I want to pull my (remaining) hair out of my head.

I can only hope that some Presidential (Palin/West/Cain) candidate tells Congress (who apparently lacks both huevos and a moral compass)”When I am elected, you will NOT send me a bill that includes funding for any country where such activity goes on...EVER. All such will be vetoed and you will be mocked individually and personally in every venue I speak in if you do.”

Is it really so much to ask? For Bohner all on his own initiative to decide “Know what? I stand up for women, regardless of what country they live in. I refuse to send one dime of aid to barbarians.”

Is it really?

O is giving $Billions to set up the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

O is attacing Libya to set up Al Qaeda in Libya

O is doing everything he can to destroy America: Minimizing oil drilling maximizes oil to Arab countries, open borders destroys the US internally, spending $Trillions destroys the US economically etc.

O is doing exactly what a RADICAL Muslim would do if he got the opportunity to destroy the US. It takes time, he can’t do it in FOUR years so he can’t be too obvious, otherwise you’d realize what is going on.

By the time most Americans figure it out, it will be too late.

If you look at MY posting, and things that JimRob posted to me, it should be clear.

JimRob is NOT happy at all.

We’ll see ‘bout things. Eh?

Do you believe that Romney might take the nomination? JimRob is wholly unwilling to accept the consqeunces.

There is NO FreeRepublic post-Romney.

Like, hell. I said if Romney wins the nomination, I’m no longer a Republican. And I and FR will actively campaign against him. If that drives away more than just the RINOs, so be it. I will not be party to electing an abortionist, homosexualist, statist Republican to walk all over our constitution. Leave that crap to the damned democrats! We don’t need two abortionist/socialist parties. It’ll be time for the constitutionalist Tea party to blossom.

Rebellion is brewing!

See!

There he is.

He can speak for himself.

We had this discussion what happens if Romney gets the nomination.

Apparently people will be able to post Pro-Romney all they want (it would appear based on most recent JimRob commentary). Not what I took away from the discussion...

That’s fine.

Jim, I'm not pushing anything. I'm sorry to haee said aything. I understand you position: no homo,abortionist, statist. IF Romney gets the nom you're still NOT endorsing the foreging. FreeRepublic will still be here and as long as they don't endorese the bad, they're golden. I'm foolish to think that Bastiat might have been recieved in better ligtht... Like hell (JimRob), understood... When Romney recieves Republican nomination JimRob renouncess his affiliation with Repub. Its after that point thast it'll be o.k. to post pro-Romney at FreeRepublic.

It must be great to terrorize women to keep Zer0’s phoney money flowing in . . .

Hey Egypt! How’s that democracy working for ya? Gotta throw in some virginity checks to make it look like you can kick ass and take names? We have a name for scum like you who find it a thrill to strip and shock women. We call you perverts and I hope we get the pleasure in kicking your asses.

Egypt. What a joke!

They need that money. You don’t think these checks are made for free do you?

Seriously though:Obama is wasting his time sending this money to Egypt, He should just be making the checks out to Al Quaeda and cut out the Middle Man.

Hard to believe one sissified Kenyan racist could bring down the United States, but Obama is doing one hell of a bang up job at trying.

Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Hazem Abu Ismail announced his intention to run in Egypt’s upcoming presidential elections.
Sun, 29/05/2011

He said that if elected he would implement Islamic sharia law and cancel the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

Ismail was the Brotherhood’s candidate in 2005 parliamentary elections for Dokki in Giza.

The group announced earlier that it would not take part in the presidential elections and confirmed that it would compete for only half the seats in Parliament. But Ismail is the second Brotherhood member to have announced his intention to run for president in defiance of the group’s leadership. The other Brotherhood candidate is Abdel Moneim Abouel Fotouh, a liberal-minded Islamist.

Abu Ismail said Saturday during a speech in a Dokki mosque that he will sweep the elections. Since he is an ordinary man, he said, the masses will support him.
