Beneath the robes of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood you’ll find brownshirts and swastikas. Egyptian President Morsi tried to give himself Hitler-like unassailable power and enshrine sharia into the Constitution, spurring protests from people who recognize a dictator in the making. However, the Muslim Brotherhood is not just a political party, they’re their own police state, with the power to arrest, beat, and torture those who oppose them.
The Brotherhood gave a first class tour to reporters for the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm so the paper could spread the word about the fate awaiting those who don’t fall into line. The story was picked up by Al Monitor web site and republished by Israeli newspaper Arutz Sheva.
Bearded Muslim Brotherhood police and security officials, some in civilian clothes and some in military uniforms, supervise 15 bearded men who carry out whippings and beatings of demonstrators arrested for opposing Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.
Of course, there is more than one torture chamber, as that would be inefficient. The Brotherhood likes to have chambers as close to the site of arrest as possible. This one just happened to be outside the presidential palace.
The most common form of torture was simple beatings. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t branch out in the future to more sophisticated stuff. Still, beatings seemed to be good enough, as some victims were beaten so badly they were unconcious.
The place left an impression on the reporters.
“We left the place and found blood flowing on the sidewalk of the palace,” wrote the Al-Masry reporter. “Someone had tried to cover the blood with soil to remove it. However, no one will be able to clean the image of this blood from the memory of Egyptians for hundreds of years.”
Remember, this is the group that Obama and Hillary want to engage with. It’s a pity that Neville Chamberlain is dead.
