Over at FrontPage Magazine (via RaymondIbrahim.com), I discuss how, while the Western media portray the Muslim Brotherhood camps as peaceful “sit ins” where Islamic supremacists “hold vigil,” in fact, these were torture camps, where people were mutilated, raped, and slaughtered:
Now that the Egyptian military has finally begun to neutralize Muslim Brotherhood terrorist bases, the so-called mainstream media are doing what they do best””twist reality to the Islamists” benefit by casting them as innocent victims merely “holding vigil” only to be slaughtered, while calling for the prosecution of the military for “human rights abuses.” They essentially follow the pro-Brotherhood Al Jazeera’s lead of portraying these bases in Rab”˜a al-Adawiya and elsewhere as peaceful “sit ins.”

Then, his “pious” tormentors supplicated their god by saying, “In the name of Allah,” before hacking his finger off.
Women are also easy prey in the Brotherhood camp. According to a recent report, they are being abused for refusing to have sex with Brotherhood supporters. One woman was reportedly tortured to death and another critically injured and hospitalized… Continue reading
