Seven Egyptian Christians sentenced to death for anti-Islam video
Times of India ^ | Nov 28, 2012, 07.56 PM IST

Posted on 11/28/2012 9:13:08 AM PST by DeaconBenjamin

CAIRO: A Cairo court on Wednesday sentenced to death seven Egyptian Christians tried in absentia for participating in an anti-Islam video that was released on the Internet in September and prompted violent protests in Muslim countries.

"The seven accused persons were convicted of insulting the Islamic religion through participating in producing and offering a movie that insults Islam and its prophet," Judge Saif al-Nasr Soliman said.

The low-budget video, produced privately in California, denigrated the Prophet Mohammad and triggered anti-US protests and attacks on Western embassies around the Muslim world.

The convicted persons included Egyptian-American Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, who is currently serving a one-year-jail term in Los Angeles after an American court convicted him of probation violations that stemmed from his role in the movie.

The 13-minute video portrays the Prophet Mohammad as a fool and a sexual deviant, although cast members have said they were misled into appearing in a film they believed was an adventure drama called "Desert Warrior."

Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church did not issue an official comment on the ruling.

"The Church denounced the movie, which it has nothing to do with. As for today's case, it is a court ruling and the Church does not comment on court decisions," said a Church source who asked not to be named.

Christians make up around 10 percent of Egypt's 83 million people and many complain of discrimination in work and treatment.

I guess the Florida pastor won't be traveling to Egypt anytime soon.

Obama’s U.N. speech denouncing the video, and his silence now, makes him complicit in the death verdict. If anything happens to any of ths defendants, Obama is responsible.

This death sentence was inspired by Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice.

Their scheme to cover-up Benghazi-gate naturally led to this result.

Fraud and First Amendment violations equal “High crimes and misdemeanors”.

Some things are just beyond any kind of constructive criticism.

Because to a Muslim, NO criticism, by definition, can be “constructive”. That would mean revision and disassembling of many of the structural parts of the whole ideology of Islam.

And that may just cause its collapse. A thought held in great dread by all the theologists of Islam.

One thing we know for pretty sure - many of the factors of mental instability tend to be hereditary in nature. Islam has shown itself to be highly supportive of mental instability, and in fact, they thrive on and exploit most of the more violent forms of mental instability.

Casual and intentional inbreeding within the tribal structure over centuries has nourished and intensified these strains of mental instability.

Probably a third or more of Muslims alive, if they relocate to a civilized part of the world, would soon be adjudged insane or mentally incompetent in a rational and unprejudiced observation of their behavior.

Precisely. Took the words out of my mouth. Nobody would have noticed that obscure video if Obama, his Communist servants, and his slavish press hadn't publicized it.

Much like the Iraqi prison-torture nonsense that the press publicized back in Bush's time, resulting in several dozen random deaths in Mohammedan countries in response.

The difference, of course, is that now it's the President and his appointees who are doing it, not just the anti-war traitors, because they are happily working with the enemy.

I would not be surprised to find that trial transcripts contain Obama’s U.N. speech, and Susan Rice’s 5 TV interviews, as evidence against the defendants.

Since they’ve managed to convince more than a billion people that “freedom” means SUBMISSION, I’d say it foments mental instability.

These Christians are dying because of Ubama and Hilary and the world does not give a S&*t!

Let me name the enemy is one word : Islam.

Let me name the enemy in the U.S.A. : the democrat party.

I haven’t seen even on this site anyone even name one of these as the enemy. No wonder people who love freedom are in trouble.

You must not get around much on FR. I see Islam and Dems (and the stinking eltist professional GOP Rinos) listed as enemies daily, numerous times. I also state that myself. I don’t see how you can claim no one on FR says that.

Yeah sure.

Show me the post except mine that says literally:

The democrat party is the biggest threat to freedom or to America. I'll be waiting for nothing. And then show me who has proposed a way to fight the democrat party. We can't even begin to fight if we don't EXPLICITLY name the enemy.

Oh I've seen a million posts against the GOP , Republicans, the Republican party, etc. but i see that on the mainstream media too( the media who are the democrat party also by the way). People might name that the media is a threat but they don't explicitly name that the media and the democrat party are one.

We have to indentify , name the source of all the evil and that is the democrat party. then step 2 we have to put forth solutions to stop the democrat party Which solutions have you seen on here or anywhere? I ‘ve seen none . Oh I've seen suggestions of starting a 3rd conservative party as if there weren't a hundred already including libertarian party , constitution party etc. but those posts are mainly intended as a complaint against the REPUBLICAN party. The first step is to identify the problem ( the enemy) .Then we all have to focus on neutralizing that problem or stopping the enemy . I haven't seen everyone or even a majority on here or anywhere even agree on that which is also a step (focusing all energy on neutralizing the biggest threat). Then focusing all energy on that then once the democrat party is destroyed then we can all go after the GOP as that seems to be the consensus here ( destroying the GOP).

If you had read comments I’ve read, you wouldn’t say what you just said. I’ve seen plenty of discussions on this topic.

First of all, and I have to be quick becuase I’m busy, not because it’s not an interesting and important topic:

The GOP needs a high colonic and get rid of RINOS, DC insiders, the elite professional establishment - who hate real conservatives. When Republicans hold Constitution based conservative principles and can clearly articulate them to the public, that’s half the battle or more, right there. Catering to and pandering to minority groups, trying to be Dems/lite, is a losing proposition.

Second thing is, Rs need to be attack pit bulls against the MSM and the Dem party, alalong with their love affair with Muslims (but I repeat myself there). THey need to attack the lies, propaganda and downright criminality of both the MSM and the Dems. They need to clearly contrast the real intent of Constitutional governance with the progressive commie lies of the leftists. Being afraid that the MSM won’t like them, or someone will accuse them of Islamophobia, homophobia and the like means that the Rs are doomed.

THis is the only way. Attack the MSM and Dems with *no* *holds* *barred*. No more Mr Niceguy Milkquetoast neutered crying panstwetting bunny wabbits.

Me attack Dems does nothing. No one listens to me. But Rs in positions where people listen to them - talk show peoiple, elected Rs, candidates, and so on - need to first of all BE real conservatives, along Constitutional principles, and be courageous fighters who can think on their feet, and are beholden to NO ONE but their own conscience.

This is the only winning strategy.

Ok then show me the protests in the streets against the democrat party. Or show me the PLANS put forth here to destroy the democrat party. I've never seen any of either.

IF we had known that the democrats are the enemy then we would have had protests in the streets against the democrat party. I have seen NONE ever. I know you say that there are posts here (other than mine) that have EXPLICITLY and literally named the democrat party as the worst threat to our freedom and to America BUT i have never seen one. Oh I've seen a million of posts as even yours seems to do to suggest the GOP is the problem. IMO most on this site believe the GOP is the problem . Funny since the media has ruled this country for the last 100 years and the media are the democrat party. That's another thing I have not heard HARDLY anyone here or anywhere mention that 1. the media = the democrat party and 2. that the media(democrat party) has ruled this country for the last 100 years and so has caused all the problems we have. As you can tell from the nickname I chose , several years ago when Bush was president I saw the democrats and the media ( the democrat party) as the threat. Even now with a democrat president destroying the country still we don't see the identifying of the problem.

1st step is identifying the main threat , the problem . The threat is the democrat party.

2. 2nd step is focusing all our energy on destroying that threat. and yes that doesn't mean focusing on bashing the GOP. sure we can destroy the GOP as you all want but lets after the Democrat party as we cannot destroy the democrat party unless we FOCUS and put all our time and energy on destroying that threat.
3. then we have all agree to fight with all we've got against the democrat party (the threat) . but we haven't as there are no protests on the streets ,nothing not even against this Obama democrat or his stealing of the election.

I think even on this site people don't even KNOW who or what the enemy is. If we don't even identify the enemy or at least the main enemy or biggest threat then how do we even begin to fight ? By enemy I mean the enemy of freedom and of America and everything that is good.I have never seen here or anywhere,anyone put forth a plan to destroy the democrat party or to even fight it.

To me the enemy is the democrat party.
Just a few of the literally millions of things democrats have done to destroy this country , turn the U.S.A into a socialist/communist 3rd world country and destroy our freedom

1. The media has ruled this country for the last 100 years and at least 90% of the media are democrats and the democrats have controlled the media for 100 years.
2. Obama is a democrat and we all DO see what this criminal has done to America.
3. Democrats controlled Congress for 40 years before the Republicans finally gained a SIMPLe not a super majority in 1992. So in those 40 years the democrat Congresses built this huge government and momentum for communism. the worst ACT was probably their 1965 immigration act which gave changed immigration to come from the 3rd world mainly Mexico and Latin America so that they imported 80 million foreign potential democrat voters since then. the nail in the coffin was Obamacare which all democrats voted for and not a single Republican did vote for that.

The media will demonize any Republican presidential nominee for example Palin, Cain, Bachmann,Bush you name it.

I will read your comment in depth later. No time at the moment. But here is my short answer:

To win a war, you need a good fighting army. So that needs to happen before succeeding in defeating the Dems/leftists.

Do you work for the RNC or GOP by any chance?

In your post you spent 2 long paragraphs bashing Republicans, oh the Republicans need to do this or that means that your are saying it's their fault. Your post illustrates my point that most (including you) don't realize the threat the democrats pose and the media (the democrats) you spent most of your posts bashing the GOP( how is that destroying the democrat party? it's not) but you as most on here seem to think the GOP is the problem and that's fine if that is your opinion but I just think the democrat party is the threat and that needs to be stopped and lose lips sink ships and we are in a propaganda war so everything we say should be though of first in terms of how will it hurt the democrat party( does any one here think like that ? NO I do but not anyone else) . Let me tell you the media do think like that . the media reporters search for any event and they are thinking how will this story hurt the Republicans that's how they think and if it does then they make it news or if it can be spun in a way to hurt Republicans then they make it news .We don't think like that with that first in our minds that thought to destroy the democrat party( how will what I do or say on the Internet hurt the democrat party: do you think like that or just post whatever comes into your mind : well we know the answer. I don't I think the same way the MSM reporters think I know we are in a war so I post with that in mind (how will what I say hurt the democrat party :. yes I want to destroy the democrat party).although I have less exposure than a media reporter. The fact is no one on here or any conservatives think like that because they don't see the democrat party as the great threat or at least haven't put it in their minds that it should be their first goal to destroy the democrat party . I know the media Reporters have it in their mind first of all to destroy Republicans. As an example look at what they did to Republican Sarah Palin or any Republican for that matter. It might be too late now even if we all do realize who the enemy is and what we have to do as we should have realized this decades ago.

I am too busy to go point by point right now, I will have time later tonight or tomorrow.

You have not answered this question.

How do you fight and win a war with an army that has many cowards, enemy sympathizers, “peace in our time” accomadators, those whose loyalties are with money and not principles, and the like?

Hint: You cannot. Any war has to have a good fighting army with Generals and other officers who are good fighters.

You didn’t answer if you work for the GOP in some way. I will be back and answer in more detail. But your accusation that I or others here minimize the danger of the leftist thugs which include the MSM, you are outright lying.
