Top Egyptian cleric Ahmed el-Tayeb the grand sheik of Cairo’s Al-Azhar: Mubarak deserves mercy

Mubarak deserves mercy

ALL THE PEOPLE IN EGYPT “WELL THE POOR” want mubarak swinging from an acasia tree, but if orders are given it has to pass this man Ahmed el-Tayeb the grand sheik of Cairo’s Al-Azhar, Mohamed Ibrahim Abdel-Monem was convicted of killing 20 protesters on Jan. 28,in his absence he was tried and convicted . The court referred the case to the Grand Mufti, Egypt’s religious authority who must approve all death sentences.


Egypt’s top Sunni Muslim cleric says the country’s former president Hosni Mubarak should be granted mercy instead of facing prosecution,

Ahmed el-Tayeb, the grand sheik of Cairo’s Al-Azhar institution, was quoted by German weekly Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung’s Sunday edition as saying that “mercy should prevail over justice” given Mubarak’s achievements and his poor health.

Representatives of Al-Azhar, the pre-eminent theological institute of Sunni Islam, in Cairo could not be reached to confirm the comments.

“One should consider that Mubarak has done a lot for Egypt over a long time. He’s an old and sick man. Mercy should prevail over justice,” he was quoted as saying.

The weekly, which said it interviewed el-Tayeb in Egypt’s capital, further quoted him as saying that toppling Mubarak was an expression of the people’s desire for change “which Al-Azhar supports.”

El-Tayeb also voiced concern in light of the recent clashes between Copts and Muslims in Cairo, saying those were directed “from interested groups outside” the country, accusing “the West of seeking to foment chaos in Egypt.”

“Muslims and Christians have lived peacefully together since Islam’s introduction 1,400 years ago,” the newspaper quoted him as saying.

so with all this power he cant even get a muslim drug addict to pay up,

Egyptian general admits ‘virginity checks’ conducted on protesters

go home make a new president, they were told!

OK GIRLS YOU CAN NOW START BLOGGING ON HOW THE ARMY ARE LIARS,,, THEY SAY NONE OF THE WOMEN WERE VIRGINS.

THIS MEANS THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE WOMEN ARE GOING TO HAVE ONE HELL OF A JOB PROVING THAT THEY ARE VIRGINS TO THE NEW HUSBAND TO BE ,

YOU WANT DEMOCRACY, PROVE THESE ANIMALS TO BE LIARS,

more verbal garbage coming from the ARMY liars

,,we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs).” you mean they were smoking? well how dangerous is that,

A senior Egyptian general admits that “virginity checks” were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring, the first such admission after previous denials by military authorities.

The allegations arose in an Amnesty International report, published weeks after the March 9 protest. It claimed female demonstrators were beaten, given electric shocks, strip-searched, threatened with prostitution charges and forced to submit to virginity checks.

At that time, Maj. Amr Imam said 17 women had been arrested but denied allegations of torture or “virginity tests.”

But now a senior general who asked not to be identified said the virginity tests were conducted and defended the practice.

JUST AS MUCH AS SHEIHK MOHAMED TYEB DEFENDS FEMALE CIRCUMCISION AS PART OF THE CULTURE OF LUXOR.

“The girls who were detained were not like your daughter or mine,” the general said. “These were girls who had camped out in tents with male protesters in Tahrir Square, and we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs).”

The general said the virginity checks were done so that the women wouldn’t later claim they had been raped by Egyptian authorities.

“We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” the general said. “None of them were (virgins).”

This demonstration occurred nearly a month after Egypt’s longtime President Hosni Mubarak stepped down amid a wave of popular and mostly peaceful unrest aimed at his ouster and the institution of democratic reforms.

Afterward, Egypt’s military — which had largely stayed on the sidelines of the revolution — officially took control of the nation’s political apparatus as well, until an agreed-upon constitution and elections.

Mubarak denies ordering shootings

The March 9 protest occurred in Tahrir Square, which became famous over 18 historic and sometimes bloody days and nights of protests that led to Mubarak’s resignation.

But unlike in those previous demonstrations, the Egyptian military targeted the protesters. Soldiers dragged dozens of demonstrators from the square and through the gates of the landmark Egyptian Museum.

Salwa Hosseini, a 20-year-old hairdresser and one of the women named in the Amnesty report, described to CNN how uniformed soldiers tied her up on the museum’s grounds, forced her to the ground and slapped her, then shocked her with a stun gun while calling her a prostitute.

“They wanted to teach us a lesson,” Hosseini said soon after the Amnesty report came out. “They wanted to make us feel that we do not have dignity.”

The treatment got worse, Hosseini said, when she and the 16 other female prisoners were taken to a military detention center in Heikstep.

There, she said, she and several of other female detainees were subjected to a “virginity test.”

“We did not agree for a male doctor to perform the test,” she said. But Hosseini said her captors forced her to comply by threatening her with more stun-gun shocks.

“I was going through a nervous breakdown at that moment,” she recalled. “There was no one standing during the test, except for a woman and the male doctor. But several soldiers were standing behind us watching the backside of the bed. I think they had them standing there as witnesses.”

The senior Egyptian general said the 149 people detained after the March 9 protest were subsequently tried in military courts, and most have been sentenced to a year in prison.

Authorities later revoked those sentences “when we discovered that some of the detainees had university degrees, so we decided to give them a second chance,” he said.

The senior general reaffirmed that the military council was determined to make Egypt’s democratic transition a success.

“The date for handover to a civil government can’t come soon enough for the ruling military council,” he said. “The army can’t wait to return to its barracks and do what it does best practice and protect the back passages on the borders
