Naked images of Pharoahs are heresy, says Salafist leader

Images of naked Pharaohs on Egypts temples are tantamount to heresy, prominent Salafist Abdel Moneim El-Shahat said on Wednesday.
El-Shahat, who failed to win an independent seat for the Nour Party in recent parliamentary elections, had previously called Egypts Pharaonic heritage rotten.
Speaking to Moataz El-Demerdash on El-Hayat 2 Channel on Wednesday evening, El-Shahat also reiterated his controversial comments about Egypts renowned novelist Naguib Mahfouz, stressing that his novel Awlad Harretna (Children of the Alley), one of the books that earned him a Nobel prize in 1988, violated the principles of Islam.
El-Shahat had previously said that Mahfouzs novel had symbols that promote atheism and accused him of inciting promiscuity, prostitution and atheism in his books.
However, El-Shahat said he did not mean to personally attack the deceased writer and urged readers to read Mahfouzs novels to know that he is correct. He also sharply criticised Egyptian novelist and activist Alaa El-Aswany, author of The Yacoubian Building and Chicago.
Those who attack me should read Naguib Mahfouzs novels, El-Shahat told El-Demerdash. And I challenge Alaa El-Aswany to read his novel The Yacoubian Building on live TV.
Speaking about women, El-Shahat spoke about his dream for all Egyptian women to wear the niqab (full veil) and claimed Salafists are not the enemies of women.
All brought to you by the "Religion of Peace"
Funny, they survived for thousands of years but will not survive the ISLAMOFASCIST.
Well, say goodbye to the artwork of the pharoahs.
We’re going to be sorry we backed these crazies masquerading as religious leaders.
Yuppers, and he doesn’t have the sense to be ashamed of it either.
This is how it begins . . . .
Egypt might become the first country attacked by the UN in order to protect a UN World Heritage Site.
That’s how they began with blowing up the giant Buddha in Afghanistan.
They won't do a thing. Sites have already been looted. The Cairo Museum was broken into and over seventy items were stolen during the riots, less then half have been recovered and of those many were damaged including items from Tut's tomb.
It goes back further than that, with the burning of the great Library of Alexandria.
I was watching some shows about ancient Egypt with my mother a few days ago and told her exactly that. They will destroy it all if they can get away with it.
“It goes back further than that, with the burning of the great Library of Alexandria.”
Mostly accepted as being accidently burned by Julius Caesar but I take it you believe it was the Moslem Caliph Omar?
“The Caliph has been quoted as saying of the Library’s holdings, “they will either contradict the Koran, in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, so they are superfluous.”
Our “inner barbarian” is far closer than we think. Pre WW II Germany was the world’s most educated and advanced nation. Yet, Hitler took it into barbarism in a few years.
Therefore, beware of those who want to emulate Hitler, wanna be tyrants like Obamoids, Liberals, Prog, ad nauseam.
I wonder if El-Shehat is mispelled. Could be “El Shit in his hat”. That would be more appropriate.
In our lingo, it would be “shit head”. Even more appropriate for this psycho.
If he ever loses his job in Egypt, he can get another one at either Columbia Un, Georgetown Un. or Union Theological Seminary, or in the White House. They need a new chief of staff.
I guess we’ll soon see if there are any sane people in Egypt, or not.
When some Egyptians actually tried to recover some items from the museum they torched recently, they were shot and & beaten by members of the Army.
It’s just another day in koranistan.
Who is casting the shadow in that first photo?
