Skip to comments.Egypt court sentences 683 to death including Brotherhood chief
Posted on 04/28/2014 11:16:34 PM PDT by tcrlaf
An Egyptian court sentenced 682 alleged Islamists and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie to death on Monday, a lawyer and prosecutor said, after two brief sessions the defence partly boycotted.
The same court in the southern province of Minya also reversed 492 of 529 death sentences it passed in March, commuting most of those to life in prison.
The court, presided over by judge Said Youssef Sabry, had sparked an international outcry with its initial sentencing last month amid an extensive crackdown on supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
The crackdown has extended to secular-leaning dissidents who supported Morsi's overthrow but have since turned on the army-installed regime.
In Cairo, a court banned the April 6 youth movement that spearheaded the 2011 revolt which toppled strongman Hosni Mubarak, following a complaint accusing it of defaming Egypt and colluding with foreign parties.
In Minya, judge Sabry is set to confirm the death sentences on June 21.

It's too bad the people that fomented and paid for the violent overthrow of Egypt, and the subsequent deaths won't be standing trial.
If you look at the reversal of the 492 guys....getting a reprieve from death....there’s an interesting scenario being played out. Basically, the future President of Egypt will make a decision to commute the sentences of most of these guys (my theory) and let them out, with the provision that they can’t engage in Brotherhood activities again. Most all will agree, walk out, and within a year...be right back at extremist work, then get grabbed off the street by the cops and execution will be carried out swiftly. Families will blame the Brotherhood for dragging their son or father back into the mess, and it’ll incite the public to take a dimmer view of the Brotherhood.
We need some lamp posts decorating here too
Problem is......we’re losing.....careful with that rope Eugene
Islam is a war plan.
Depends on how friendly they stay with Russia.
Haven’t the Egyptians done well - ended up swapping one dictator for another but in between had a Muslim Fundy government. Lots of people died. Now they have no tourists, no longer do they have an independent judiciary and they will probably end up a third world economy if they are not already. In politics one should never chuck out the dictator they know until they are sure what will replace it will be better - so far the EU/UN/US have failed dismally on this in the ME since the coming of the One!
The US State Dept is very sad.
According to Egyptian newspaper El Watan, a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint charging U.S. president Barrack Hussein Obama with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.
The complaint charges Obama of being an accessory to the Muslim Brotherhood, which incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after the June 30 Revolution.
Along with Obama, the complaint reproduced by El Watan mentions several Brotherhood members by name, beginning with the leader of the organization Muhammad Badie, and other top ranking leaders such as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi, adding that “Obama cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from 3/7/2013-8/18/2013, in the Arab Republic of Egypt.”
More calls for Crimes Against Humanity charges against Obama
ICC Complaint Against Obama
The complaint cites Article 7 of the ICC covering Crimes Against Humanity which read as follow:
1. For the purpose of this Statute, “crime against humanity” means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
(d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population;
(e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law;
(g) Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity;
(h) Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender as defined in paragraph 3, or other grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international law, in connection with any act referred to in this paragraph or any crime within the jurisdiction of the Court;
(i) Enforced disappearance of persons;
(j) The crime of apartheid;
(k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.
The complaint details how the Muslim Brotherhood was guilty of torturing, mutilating, raping, and killing Egyptians and inciting violence and the killing of peaceful protesters.
Given the targeting of Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama’s support of them, Obama is guilty of almost every one of the aforementioned definition of crimes against humanity.
I was in Egypt in November of 2011, part of a tour of the Holy Land. Our Coptic Christian guide told us how the Christians were so very excited about the ousting of the dictator Mubarak and the upcoming elections. They were very hopeful that “free” elections and a new constitution would give them a free country. I remember us talking about this back at the hotel when the guide was not there, and wondering if it was even possible for a predominately Muslim country (or non Judaic-Christian country for that matter) to be capably of a “democratic” style government. I tossed in the fact that a “democratic” style government would just mean that the masses would rule, which in their case would mean that the overwhelming majority of uneducated Muslims would vote exactly like their Imam tells them.... and so they did.
Too bad Egypt is using moslem islamo laws and customs in their government. If they would shake off that facade and rule their country intelligently, they just might make it.
Yes, I heard about this here on the MSM. Oh, wait a minute.......
The international outcry was "Yippee, Yippee!"
Obozo should send over his Muzzie Brohood kitchen cabinet thugs to nuance this issue with Egypt.
Youssef: Disastrous MidEast policy implies WH, Muslim Brotherhood in lockstep Wednesday, August 21, 2013 9:09:13 AM · 21 of 21
An Egyptian magazine claims that the six American Islamist activists (pictured above) who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.
The Dec. 22 story published in Egypts Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.
This is all finally coming to light but its too late. The damage has already been done. The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obamas Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood subsidiary. It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the file of Islamic states in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.
Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administrations counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.
According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji,Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.
Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.
Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.
Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as a large Brotherhood organization. source IPT

I’m sure McCain and Obama are crying their little pea sized hearts out. I’m laughing my big ass off.
An Egyptian court sentenced 682 alleged Islamists and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie to death... The same court in the southern province of Minya also reversed 492 of 529 death sentences it passed in March, commuting most of those to life in prison... The crackdown has extended to secular-leaning dissidents who supported Morsi's overthrow but have since turned on the army-installed regime... the April 6 youth movement that spearheaded the 2011 revolt which toppled strongman Hosni Mubarak, following a complaint accusing it of defaming Egypt and colluding with foreign parties.IOW, we can expect commutations on these death sentences as well. This approach used to work very well for Jordan's King Hussein -- sentence to death, or to long prison terms, then the King would commute the sentences.
I’m guessing it has to give a defendent a bit of a cold chill when he finds out his defence lawyer boycotted the proceedings-—yeah, that’ll show ‘em. yup.
Let me know when several hundred are executed, then
I’ll know they are taking out the trash seriously.
Exterminate the Vermin, they’d do the same to YOU!
Exactly, talk is cheap, right? Open fire.
It’s too bad the people that fomented and paid for the violent overthrow of Egypt, and the subsequent deaths won’t be standing trial.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
You mean people like Sec. State Hillary Clinton who had Egyptian College students attend seminars in New York with scholarships to pay their way, on how to overthrow Mubarak?
I agree.Send Hillary to Cairo and see what happens to her.
