EGYPT: Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to rape women and beat men protesting Morsi’s power grab

Hosni Mubarak jailed Muslim Brotherhood members, including Egypt’s current president, Mohamed Morsi. Maybe now, people will understand why. But hey, you get the government you deserve…just like we did.

UK Daily Mail (h/t Maria J)  Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said. They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.

It comes as the Muslim Brotherhood co-ordinated a demonstration today in support of President Mohamed Morsi, who is rushing through a constitution to try to defuse opposition fury over his newly expanded powers.

Just 24 hours earlier around 200,000 people gathered in Tahrir Square, the heart of last year’s revolution which toppled President Hosni Mubarak, yesterday to protest against a new draft constitution.  Large marches from around Cairo flowed into the square, chanting ‘Constitution: Void!’ and The people want to bring down the regime.’

But amid the calls for democracy a sinister threat has emerged.  One protestor, Yasmine, told the newspaper how she had been in the square filming the demonstrations for a few hours when the crowd suddenly turned. Before she knew what was happening, about 50 men had surrounded her and began grabbing her breasts. She said they ripped off her clothes, starting with her headscarf and for nearly an hour, indecently assaulted her with their hands.

A few men tried to help her but they were beaten away. Eventually some residents who had seen the attack from their windows came to her aid and an elderly couple pulled her into their home. She suffered internal injuries and was unable to walk for a week.

Four of Yasmine’s friends were also sexually assaulted in the square that day, in the summer. Afaf el-Sayed, a journalist and activist, told the newspaper she was assaulted by a group of men while protesting in Tahrir Square just over a month ago and she was sure her attackers were ‘thugs from the Muslim Brotherhood’. 

In February 2011 the correspondent for the American network CBS, Lara Logan, endured a half-hour sexual assault in Tahrir Square by a group of men. She said after the ordeal that she had been ‘raped with their hands.’

While the exact frequency of these attacks is unknown, activists have reported nearly 20 attacks in the last ten days and say there has been a dramatic increase in mob sex attacks on protestors in the last year. Most attacks take place in one particular corner of the square, at roughly the same time every evening, and usually starts with a group of men forming a human chain around women as if to protect them.

Yasmine said she was almost sure the assault was planned. She managed to throw her camera to a friend and was able to watch the footage later. She told The Times: ‘Just before the attack it looks like men are getting into position. They look like they’re up to something, they don’t look like random protestors.’

The newspaper spoke to two men who admitted they were paid to target female protestors. Victor and Tutu, both in their thirties, said they operate in a group of around 65 local men and got paid between £10 and £20 a time. But they would not reveal who pays them. ‘We’re told to go out and sexually harass girls so they leave the demonstration,’ Victor told The Times. He said the aim was to cause disruption and instil fear in protesters. He said members of the public sometimes joined in. 

Protestors in Tahrir Square yesterday angrily vowed to bring down a draft constitution approved by allies of President Morsi. The protests have highlighted an increasingly united opposition leadership of prominent liberal and secular politicians trying to direct public anger against Morsi and the Islamists – a contrast to the leaderless youth uprising last year which toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Figures from a new leadership coalition took the stage to address the crowds. The coalition, known as the National Salvation Front, includes prominent democracy advocate Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, leftist Hamdeen Sabbahi and former Arab League chief Amr Moussa.

‘We are determined to continue with all peaceful means, whatever it takes to defend our legitimate rights,’ ElBaradei told the crowd. He later posted on Twitter that Morsi and his allies are “staging a coup against democracy” and that the regime’s legitimacy ‘is eroding’. Sabbahi vowed protests would go on until ‘we topple the constitution’.

The opposition announced plans for an intensified street campaign of protests and civil disobedience and even a possible march on Morsi’s presidential palace to prevent him from calling a nationwide referendum on the draft, which it must pass to come into effect. Top judges announced Friday they may refuse to monitor any referendum, rendering it invalid.

If a referendum is called, ‘we will go to him at the palace and topple him,’ insisted one protester, Yasser Said, a businessman who said he voted for Morsi in last summer’s presidential election.

Islamists, however, are gearing up as well. The Muslim Brotherhood drummed up supporters for its own mass rally today and boasted the turnout would show that the public supports Morsi’s efforts to push through a constitution. Brotherhood activists in several cities handed out fliers calling for people to come out and “support Islamic law”. A number of Muslim clerics in Friday sermons in the southern city of Assiut called the president’s opponents “enemies of God and Islam”. 

The week-long unrest has already seen clashes between Islamists and the opposition that left two dead and hundreds injured. On Friday, Morsi opponents and supporters rained stones and firebombs on each other in the cities of Alexandria and Luxor.

The Islamist-led assembly that worked on the draft for months passed it in a rushed, 16-hour session that lasted until sunrise on Friday. The draft has a distinctive Islamic bent – enough to worry many that civil liberties could be restricted, though its provisions for enforcing Sharia, or Islamic law, are not as firm as ultra-conservatives wished.

Protests were first sparked when Morsi last week issued decrees granting himself sweeping powers that neutralized the judiciary. Morsi said the move was needed to stop the courts – where anti-Islamist or Mubarak-era judges hold many powerful posts – from dissolving the assembly and further delaying Egypt’s transition.

  1. Wonder if the slafists will get to their earthly “prize” – namely, tearing down the Sphynxes? (Good luck with THAT! Those ol’ Pharoahs made them to last foreer!! Lol…) The whole lot of ‘em are total savages and would make perfect subjects for a nuke…

  2. The Muslim Brotherhood is a sinister, evil but powerful and quite effective organization which has snuck various Trojan Horses into America, and sold Obama and his team of 40 thieves on their “peaceful” approach. Morsi’s impatience and ambition could do them more harm than good and for that reason they might consider assassinating him.

  3. But I really feel that Shrillary merits a full niqab…having to look at her bloated Miss Piggy face on the news each day, fawning over islamists and the MB, is too much to bear

  4. Women should lead the way in defeating the Morsi Headbaggers…by refusing to wear the burqa and joining civilization.. the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

  5. Just seeing the action of muslims here, and on other sites,I don’t know how any vrile, healthy muslim man could refuse a pitch like this. (Please use a yiddish street hustler accent)
    “So look, Achmed! Such a deal! You get to be in the mob and act like a big man. Open your mouth so wide that people can see light coming the other end and holler that Alley Snackbar thing, and you get paid for whupping on some guy who may as well have been a Jew. And then maybe you get your rocks off too! Such a deal! Considering the demonstrated intelligence of the average Egyptian male,no wonder they can raise a mob, huh? They could draw a crowd bigger than a “Free Beer” sign in New Jersey.

    • I’ll disagree with you as far as her “fatness” goes: not everybody favours Hollywood-style stick-legs and anorexic bodies.

      That said, it’s obvious that whatever beauty she had or has is totally overwhelmed by her WICKEDNESS – she’s a profoundly EVIL WOMAN, just like her husband!!!

  6. The people of egypt voted and elected demon hood brothers. They get what they deserve. They have to wake up and understand that they are victims of islam the evil cult of muslims. It is time to cut off all aid to every hell hole in the middle east. It is really a bribe and we are not getting our money’s worth from the muslim thieves.

    • I’m not sure, seeing as BO had a lot to do with it, there will have been fraud. The way tyrants work. Whatever, the Copts secularists & moderates certainly didn’t vote for him and they are the ones mostly protesting this dictatorship. Looks very possible that the Isaiah 19 prophecy to Egypt has arrived.

    • Pretty much what you said about the English people. Give is a rest.
      They did not have much choice. There were only two parties, and the muslim brotherhood were the largest and most organised group to take over. They also had help from obamation. I think the whole thing was rigged for the MB.

  7. Maybe Hillary will make a speech in Tahrir Square denouncing Muslim Brotherhood sanctioned rape. She could bring Huma with her as her translator should things get a little dicey.

  8. I’ll never understand how these women can spend their entire lives covered up from head to toe, except face and hands.

    They knew what the MB represents. They voted… now, it’s their problem.

  9. Savages behaving like savages.

    Islam calls for savagery and chanels it for Islamic supremacism.

    Islam hoodwinks beta men to work for the alpha men. It’s like tempting them with winning Allah’s paradise lottery.

    Hillary loves dictators and it shows.

    I wonder if she would have had that smile for Hitler. A lot of Western politicians did.

  10. Never, I think, Redheart. Since they are all beaten upp if they say anything against what their men wants them to say. I hate all those idiots, they are not men they are pigs.
