Egyptian Mosque Turned Into House Of Torture For Christians After Muslim Brotherhood Protest, ‘It Will Only Get Worse’

Fox News – “Islamic hard-liners stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo, turning it into torture chamber for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the latest case of violent persecution that experts fear will only get worse.

Such stories have become increasingly common as tensions between Egypt’s Muslims and Copts mount, but in the latest case, mosque officials corroborated much of the account and even filed a police report. Demonstrators say they were taken from the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in suburban Cairo to a nearby mosque on Friday and tortured for hours by hard-line militia members.

‘They accompanied me to one of the mosques in the area and I discovered the mosque was being used to imprison demonstrators and torture them,’ Amir Ayad, a Coptic who has been a vocal protester against the regime, told MidEast Christian News from a hospital bed.

Ayad said he was beaten for hours with sticks before being left for dead on a roadside. Amir’s brother, Ezzat Ayad, said he received an anonymous phone call at 3 a.m. Saturday, with the caller saying his brother had been found near death and had been taken to the ambulance.

‘He underwent radiation treatment that proved that he suffered a fracture in the bottom of his skull, a fracture in his left arm, a bleeding in the right eye, and birdshot injuries,’ Ezzat Ayad said.

Officials at the Bilal ibn Rabah Mosque said radical militias stormed the building, in the Cairo suburb of Moqattam, after Friday prayers.

‘[We] deeply regret what has happened and apologize to the people of Moqattam,’ mosque officials said in a statement, adding that ‘they had lost control over the mosque at the time.’

The statement also ‘denounced and condemned the violence and involving mosques in political conflicts.’

The latest crackdown is further confirmation that the Muslim Brotherhood’s most hard-line elements are consolidating control in Egypt, according to Shaul Gabbay, a professor of international studies at the University of Denver.

‘It will only get worse,’ said Gabbay. ‘This has been a longstanding conflict, but now that the Muslim Brotherhood is in power, it is moving forward to implement its ideology – which is that Christians are supposed to become Muslims.

‘There is no longer anything to hold them back,’ he continued. ‘The floodgates are open.'” Read more.

    Yes, and I can still hear obama saying that now the Egyptian people will finally be better. Praying for the Christians in Egypt.

      Of course not! Christians or Jews being tortured isn’t news worthy I guess! I don’t know how these people sleep at night. It makes me so mad I could spit!
