Egypt's general prosecutor has issued arrest warrants for controversial Gainesville pastor Terry Jones and seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and referred them to trial on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that has sparked riots across the Muslim world.
The prosecutor's office says the seven men and one woman, all of whom are believed to be outside of Egypt, are charged with harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information. The office says they could face the death penalty.

The guy is scum ~ and unfortunately, typical of his kind.

On a side note, the Book of Revelation makes for good reading!
A real President would issue a public statement telling Egypt to “go to hell.”
These people are dumber than a bag of hammers.
Oh come on, they have just gone from being a staunch ally, to seeking the arrest on religious grounds of a host of private American citizens! Give Obama a break. You can’t expect the media to cover everything.
Why, they are busy with Romney’s gaffe that these people don’t want peace .... oops!
Time to cut Egypt off! Add to the list all the Middle East countries until some real changes are made. Call all Americans to not visit these countries and for those living there, better get home. We are at war.
Amazing all the trash muzzies talk about Jews and so on.
What a bunch of pycho babies.
Since we have an extradition treaty with Egypt, I’d go on the lam if I were Terry Jones. Interpol will also be after him.
Holder will be happy to serve them.
Lets keep flooding the mideast with billions in foreign aid U.S. tax dollar handouts.
It’s worked out so well!
I’ll give you one blind sheik and raise you one Infidel?
At least hammers are useful.
What’s scary is that there are some Americans that would agree that he should be arrested.
Please, Egypt! Put me on your list.
1. Instruct Egypt that they have 1 week to get their people under control as it relates to our diplomats.
2. Instruction Egypt that they must publically renounce the arrest warrants issued on any American citizen immediately.
3. Presidential announcement that if these conditions are not met, America will cease transfer of any and all foreign aid to Egypt.
Not really. The dumb ones are those who voted for Sheik Obama.
I wouldn’t be in the least surprised if Obama handed Jones and the ithers over to the Egyptians.
Remember, he had the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff call Jones, who had virtually nothing to do with the video in the first place. It was actually first shown on Salafist TV in Egypt, not to a tiny congregation in Gainesville, Florida.
I am agnostic on Koran burning. Meaning sure do it if you want. But this almost cries out for a day o Koran afire.
” HA! Let’s see if Obama sells out his own countrymen to another court system. “
Obama might wait until after the election.
Funny how Jones was called, and therefore elevated in the international media, so now they come after him and some Copts. The Obama Administration put a giant bulls eye on the Christians of Egypt, besides these Americans.
So, who’s up for making the trip to Florida to physically protect Terry Jones ?
With Interpol having free reign in this country thanks to Outstanding Leader’s EO, I am sure these great men will be arrested by Interpol soon.
I am sure they will be arrested soon.
Obama's foreign policy is a disaster. He's turned Egypt into Iran in less than two years. How long will it be before Egypt starts working on chemical and nuclear weapons? Jimmy Carter couldn't have screwed up any worse than this.
When leadership is needed, we get capitulation. My gut tells me this is playing out exactly the way Dear Reader’s handlers scripted it.
How on earth can this administration support the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremists against American citizens?
Spiraling down into darkness.
Holy men and women, pray for us.
"Disaster", sez you.
"Rousing success", sez The Won.
Well I think Jones could easily find 100,000 bodyguards to surround is house 24/7 on rotating shifts with 1,000 guards posted on each shift. This could get very interesting if Egypt actually tries to arrest him. Interpol, however, will not get involved in trying to enforce Egyptian arrest warrants.
Terry Jones is more than capable of protecting himself. He’s been interviewed several times and makes no bones about being armed everywhere he goes.
He carries a S&W .44 magnum, as I recall.
I agree in principle, though maybe not in those exact words. I would be clear to point out that they have no jurisdiction over the speech of ANY of our citizens and that any action whatsoever to enforce a warrant or punishment in any way against our citizens would be viewed as an act of war. I would add that ALL forms of US aid are suspended until such a time where those warrants have been irreversibly revoked. Failure to revoke within 60 days would result in severence of diplomatic relations and travel restrictions between our countries.
It is past time to deal forcefully and decisively with this BS.
The treaty forbids extradition for crimes of “a political nature” (Article III), and only when the alleged act would be a crime on the soil of the nation where the crime actually occurred (Article I).
Under the old United States, extradition for “blasphemy” of Mohammed - doggyshiesse be upon him - would be strictly forbidden. In Hussein 0bama’s American caliphate, who knows?
“They could face the death penalty”.....Well it’s good to see that rational people run Egypt now. Hey, Hillary! Thanks for screwing this up. Incompetent, arrogant fool.
Bette Midler for one..................
i expect him to be extradited to egypt ... to promote 'peace'
This is total distraction and disflection
Is this another one of those Moslem spontaneous outbursts by the mob on the street?
I want to see them go get Ann Barnhardt.....
As if any silly technicality would stop Osama Obama.
Some of his "chickens" ---coming home to roost.
first they came for those clinging to their guns and religion, and I did not speak out....
Proof that islam (not “radical” islam) is 100% incompatible with our First Amendment, or really with any sort of individual civil liberty.
That is the crux of their war on the west, which right now we are losing and losing badly.
Next step: Egypt to issue arrest warrants for Republican members of US Congress.
Only then will our congresscritters perhaps wake up to the fact that this country is already under muslim siege.
They treated Jones, a rag-tag rural preacher, as if he were a superpower. I don’t even think they had the CJCS call Egypt....
You know what is coming next, “repatriate the blind sheik, and we will drop the charges..”
