Egypt: Death Toll Now At 75 As New Islamist Group Arms Itself, Calls Military Coup A ‘War Against Islam’

It’s a “war against Islam.” That wasn’t hard to figure out …

By JAMES RUSH, JILL REILLY and JAYMI MCCANN, Mail Online – “A newly formed Islamist group is threatening to use violence to impose Sharia law on Egypt after branding the army’s ousting of the Muslim president a declaration of war on its faith.

Ansar al-Shariah in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training its members, in a statement posted on an online forum for militants in the country’s Sinai region yesterday and recorded by the SITE Monitoring organisation. The army’s move, which was backed by mass rallies across Egypt, has raised fears Islamists could desert officially-recognised groups like Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and move to more militant movements.

The group’s sinister declaration came as fierce clashes between supporters and opponents of the ousted president overnight left 36 dead and a further 1,079 injured, and a Coptic Christian priest was shot dead by gunmen in a suspected sectarian attack blamed on Islamist insurgents. The latest fatalities brings the overall death toll to at least 75 in a chaotic week for Egypt.

The most deadly clashes were in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, where 14 people died and 200 were wounded. In central Cairo, pro and anti-Morsi protesters fought pitched battles late into the night with stones, knives, petrol bombs and clubs as armoured personnel carriers rumbled among them. It took hours to restore calm.

The Nile River bridges around the landmark Egyptian Museum where the street fights raged were still covered with the debris of rocks and shattered glass this morning…

Ansar al-Shariah said in its statement the military overthrow, the closing of television channels and the death of Islamist protesters all amounted to ‘a war declared against Islam in Egypt’, SITE reported.

The group blamed the events on secularists, supporters of Mubarak and Egyptian Coptic Christians, state security forces and army commanders, who they said would turn the country into ‘a crusader, secular freak’.

It denounced democracy and said it would instead champion Islamic law, or sharia, acquire weapons and train to allow Muslims to ‘deter the attackers, preserve the religion and empower the sharia of the Lord’, SITE reported. ” Read more.

Cairo Residents: ‘Heavily Armed Islamists Attacked Us’ – “‘The Brotherhood attacked the area with all kinds of weapons,’ said resident Mohammed Yehya, who lost three of his friends in the mayhem. Inhabitants of the Nile island of Manial reported seeing dozens of bearded Islamists armed with machineguns, machetes and sticks … Buildings were pockmarked with bullet holes. Rocks carpeted the floor and charred tyres showed the ferocity of the violence… Residents say the attack began just minutes after the Brotherhood’s supreme guide, Mohammed Badie, gave a fiery speech to Mursi supporters camped out in Cairo’s Nasr City, which was broadcast live on television.” Read more.

World’s Most Influential Sunni Cleric Issues Fatwa: All Egyptians Must Support Morsi And The Muslim Brotherhood

This is the same cleric that defends Hitler and supports nuclear terrorism, affirms the death penalty for anyone who leaves Islam, denies that Jews had ever lived in the land of “Palestine” before and calls for the complete destruction of Israel. In other words, devout Muslims love this guy and take him seriously …

Reuters – “A leading Qatar-based cleric declared in a religious edict, or fatwa, on Saturday that Egyptians should support ousted President Mohamed Morsy of the Muslim Brotherhood and the military should withdraw from the political scene.

Egyptian-born Youssef al-Qaradawi, one of the most prominent Sunni clerics in the Middle East, said in the fatwa posted on his website that the military’s intervention to depose Morsy on Wednesday was against democracy and the constitution.

‘Doctor al-Qaradawi issued a fatwa on the necessity to support the elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy, and to retain the constitution… and calling on al-Sisi and those with him to withdraw to preserve legitimacy and democracy,’ the posting said.

He said many scholars from Cairo’s al-Azhar Islamic university, Egypt’s pre-eminent Muslim institution, agreed with him…

Qaradawi, chairman of the International Federation of Muslim Scholars, has been a vociferous supporter of the revolutions that roiled Arab countries in 2011. Last month he called for a holy war in Syria against President Bashar al-Assad.”  Read more.

Palestinian Child On PA TV: Jews Are ‘Most Evil Among Creations, Barbaric Monkeys, Wretched Pigs’

Because the “prophet” Mohammed said so. Just don’t expect such “facts” to make it into the watered-down, sanitized version of Islam that is often fed to a Western audience. An evil beast covered in frosting and sprinkles is still an evil beast …

Zechariah 9:5-6, 9-15a, “Ashkelon will see it and fear; Gaza will writhe in agony, and Ekron too, for her hope will wither. Gaza will lose her king and Ashkelon will be deserted. Foreigners will occupy Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines…. Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you… He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners… I will bend Judah as I bend my bow and fill it with Ephraim. I will rouse your sons, O Zion… Then the LORD will appear over them; his arrow will flash like lightning. The Sovereign LORD will sound the trumpet; he will march in the storms of the south, and the LORD Almighty will shield them.”

Children Reciting Poem on PA TV (Fatah), 7/3/2013: “I do not fear the rifle because your throngs are in delusion and ignorant herds. Jerusalem is my land, Jerusalem is my honor. Jerusalem is my days and my wildest dreams. Oh, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets. Oh, you who were brought up on spilling blood. You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship. Oh Sons of Zion, oh most evil among creations. Oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs. Jerusalem is not your den, Jerusalem opposes your throngs. Jerusalem vomits from within it your impurity …” Watch more below.

Flashback: Muslim Cleric: Jews Are ‘Apes And Pigs’, ‘Making Our Children Loathe The Jews Is a Form of Worship of Allah’

Luke 17:1-2, “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones [children] to sin.’”
