Obama-Backed Islamist Mohamed Morsi Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison For Torturing Protesters

Egypt’s Morsi Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison – Al Arabiya News

An Egyptian court on Tuesday sentenced ousted president Mohamed Morsi and 12 other defendants to 20 years in jail for involvement in the arrests and torture of protesters during his rule.

But the court acquitted Morsi of murder charges that could have seen him sentenced to death over the killings of a journalist and two protesters during clashes outside a presidential palace in 2012.

Morsi had been facing the prospect of a death penalty, which would have been a symbolic blow against his Muslim Brotherhood movement – target of a brutal government crackdown after then army chief and now president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi overthrew him on July 3, 2013.

Ahead of the verdict, the Brotherhood slammed Sisi and called for pro-Morsi protests on Tuesday.

“The coup commander is exploiting the judiciary as a weapon in the battle against popular will and the democratic and revolutionary legitimacy represented by President Mohammad Morsi,” it said in a statement.

Morsi also faces a possible death penalty in two other trials, including one in which he is accused of spying for foreign powers.

Separate verdicts in those two cases are due on May 16.

Morsi was toppled after mass street protests against his year-long rule.

The new authorities then launched a sweeping crackdown on his supporters in which more than 1,400 people were killed and thousands jailed.

Hundreds have been sentenced to death after speedy mass trials which the United Nations called “unprecedented in recent history”.

The authorities have also targeted secular and liberal activists who spearheaded the 2011 uprising against long-time autocrat Hosni Mubarak, Morsi’s predecessor.

In November, a court dropped murder charges against Mubarak in his own trial over the deaths of hundreds of protesters in 2011.

Tuesday’s verdict involved a case in which Mursi and 14 other defendants, seven of whom are on the run, are charged with the killing of three protesters and torturing several more during clashes in front of the presidential palace on December 5, 2012.

Defense lawyers say there is no proof Morsi incited the clashes. The verdict is open to appeal.

Sisi has vowed to “eradicate” the Brotherhood, an 85-year-old movement that staged major electoral gains between Mubarak’s fall and Morsi’s presidential victory in May 2012.

The movement was designated a “terrorist group” in December 2013, with the authorities blaming it for attacks on the security forces.

Jihadists have claimed these attacks in retaliation for the anti-Brotherhood crackdown.

In a country where the army has been in power for decades, Sisi’s May 2014 presidential victory crushed hopes raised since the popular anti-Mubarak revolt of a civilian democracy.

However, Sisi’s regime is widely popular among Egyptians tired of more than four years of political turmoil, but rights groups say it is more repressive than under Mubarak.

Muslim Sheikh Receives Stiff Fine For Raping, Torturing And Murdering His Own 5-Year Old Daughter Whom He Suspected Of Not Being A Virgin

Muslim Sheikh Accuses 5-Year-Old Daughter Of Not Being A Virgin, Beats Her To Death, Gets Off With $50,000 Fine – Front Page

There are some who speculate that the location of the biblical city of Sodom was in Saudi Arabia. They may have a case. Saudi Arabia is what happens when you combine absolute evil with ungodly amounts of money.

It’s not just that monsters like Fayhan al-Ghamdi exist in Saudi Arabia. They exist everywhere. But in the heartland of Islam, where Mohammed first began his wave of crimes against women and little girls, they operate with the sanction of the state.

Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi, an Islamic television preacher in Saudi Arabia, beat Lama, his 5-year-old daughter to death during a custodial visit. Saudi police had found the 5-year-old wandering the streets, she was taken to the hospital and placed in intensive care.

The side of her head had been mashed in, her back was broken, she had a skull fracture, bleeding in the head, a broken left hand, bruises all over her body, and burns that apparently came from an iron. One of her fingernails had been pulled out. There were signs that she had been sexually assaulted in various ways that are too horrific to describe, but that are in serial killer territory.

Lama died in the hospital and a trial began.

……..

“The person who committed this heinous crime is the girl’s father, who tells people how to live their lives and encourages them to cultivate the fear of Allah, who used whips and irons on the body of a 5-year-old girl,” her mother said.

Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi told the judge that his daughter had been “behaving strangely” and questioned her virginity. He took her to a medical professional to have her virginity checked.

Sheikh al-Ghamdi had a job with the Saudi Ministry of Education where he was supposed to be working with troubled youth. The court found that under Islamic Hadith from several sources that states that a father cannot be executed for killing a child, that he should not be treated as a murderer.

It was narrated that the Prophet (Mohammed) said, “No father should be killed (executed) for killing his son.” (At-Tirmidhi)

Or alternatively.

Do not kill him that killed his son, but kill the mother to kill her and her son. (Ibn Qudamah)

Apparently that also applies to jail time for torturing your 5-year-old daughter to death. Instead the court sentenced Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi to 4 months in prison and to pay $50,000 in blood money to the mother of his child.

This is what the Islamic justice system and its values are like. This is the Sharia law that the left insists on importing to America and to Europe.
