Inside Egypt’s Terrorist Camps: Torture, Rape, Mass Murder

Print Friendly

Now that the Egyptian military has finally begun to neutralize Muslim Brotherhood terrorist bases, the so-called mainstream media are doing what they do best—twist reality to the Islamists’ benefit by casting them as innocent victims merely “holding vigil” only to be slaughtered, while calling for the prosecution of the military for “human rights abuses.”  They essentially follow the pro-Brotherhood Al Jazeera’s lead of portraying these bases in Rab‘a al-Adawiya and elsewhere as peaceful “sit ins.”

Egyptian man describing how he was tortured, electrocuted, and had his finger severed in the name of Allah in the Brotherhood’s torture camps

What the mainstream media have failed to report is that for over two months in these “sit ins”—or more appropriately, mini-emirates in Egypt—many Egyptians have been tortured, mutilated, raped, and mass murdered in the name of Islam and/or Brotherhood rule.  (Of course, this is unsurprising considering how the media also failed to report on the nonstop and heinous attacks on the nation’s Christian minority and its churches, all validated by Brotherhood leadership.)

The anecdotes are many.  For instance, one man accused of stealing was tortured and had his finger chopped off (in accordance to Sharia).  He appears in this video—his face beaten to a bloody pulp—describing his ordeal.  Like so many in Rab‘a, he was there not as a Brotherhood supporter, but because he worked in the area.  Accused of stealing, he insisted he was innocent.  When his accusers refused to relent, he said, “Fine, if I’m a thief, hand me over to police,” but they said, “No, we will hand you over to Allah.” He was taken to a room and tortured for fourteen hours, including by being sprayed with water and repeatedly electrocuted and stabbed and sliced with a switchblade (in minute 3:47 he exposes his mutilated chest).   Then, his “pious” tormentors supplicated their god by saying, “In the name of Allah,” before hacking his finger off.

Women are also easy prey in the Brotherhood camp.  According to a recent report, they are being abused for refusing to have sex with Brotherhood supporters.  One woman was reportedly tortured to death and another critically injured and hospitalized.  An Egyptian organization concerned with female rights said it “will expose in the coming days the extent of the violations and crimes against humanity which our sisters have been exposed to by the orders of the General Guide [of the Brotherhood, Muhammad Badie] to coerce women to engage in sex-jihad, with torture to death for those who refuse.”

Here is another live interview with an Egyptian reporter who was kidnapped in Rab‘a, beaten, and told she must stay “because we need women for sex.”  The logic behind the sex-jihad (or in Arabic jihad al-nikah) is that women are permitted to copulate with single, male Brotherhood protesters to help alleviate their sexual frustrations so they can focus on empowering Islam—which among the Brotherhood is synonymous with empowering the Brotherhood—without becoming too restless and possibly abandoning the jihad.

Then there are the corpses that are being found.  According to journalist Ahmed Musa on Tahrir TV channel, one of the arrested terrorists confessed that Brotherhood leadership murdered more than 80 people who were either suspected of being police informants or were trying to escape the Brotherhood camps. The Brotherhood then buried the bodies in a mass grave inside Rab‘a.  According to the arrested terrorist, the Brotherhood fears that, “if their camps are broken up, their crimes against humanity will be exposed and that the Ministry of Interior will take pictures of this mass grave and broadcast them to the world.”

Aside from these atrocities and accusations of atrocities, reports of general beatings were surfacing every day.  The majority revolved around people working or living in Rab‘a, who were pressured to join the pro-Morsi protests, only to be beaten savagely for refusing.

Despite the many serious human rights abuses that took place under Brotherhood auspices, the only Western media ever to allude to any of this was an AP report that, after explaining how bound, dead bodies were found near Rab‘a and how many in Egypt insist it’s the work of the Brotherhood, immediately went into default mode by suggesting these could all be false allegations and, if dead bodies are being found, perhaps it’s the work of the military trying to frame the Brotherhood—exactly what the Brotherhood has been caught doing, killing their own supporters to frame the military.

Brotherhood exploitation of the media to garner sympathy is an old phenomenon.  Years back, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, discussing how Islamists often turn to violence when “dialogue” doesn’t go their way, said:

But when I see that you are firing at me, trying to kill me—well, I have to defend myself.  Then the international news agencies go to these [Islamist] groups for information, and they tell them, “They are killing us, they are killing us!”  Well, don’t you [news agencies] see them killing the police?!  I swear to you, not one of the police wants to kill them—not one of us.

And now, as the Egyptian military disperses the Brotherhood’s terrorist camps, right on cue, the Western press is doing what it does best—skewing reality to the benefit of the Brotherhood.

Still, there is one positive side to all this.  Because so many Muslim Brotherhood members and their Islamist allies had congregated in Rab‘a and elsewhere, turning them into mini Islamist states where Brotherhood rule was enforced—torturing, chopping fingers off, sexually abusing women, and murdering dissenters—we have gotten a glimpse of exactly what sort of state the Brotherhood sought to transform Egypt.

But just as it took several months before even Fox News told of the Muslim Brotherhood torture chambers—despite the fact that any number of Egyptian media had for months been disseminating pictures and videos of those tortured—no doubt it will take a while before news of the Brotherhood torture camps is ever disseminated in the West.

Update:  Now that Egypt’s military has cleared out and is investigating Rab’a, buried bodies are indeed being found.  So far, 28 bodies, most bearing marks of severe torture, including charring from electrocution, have been discovered — the handiwork of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Mr. Ibrahim, I rarely take the time to comment on your articles, but they are invaluable in showing the “religion of peace” as it really is. One can only hope that God has mercy on all those innocent men, women, and children who are tortured, raped, maimed, and killed in the name of this most primitive and brutal cult-like religion. One can also only hope that our “leaders” in the Western world will wake up before it’s too late. Keep up your outstanding scholarship.

      Agree,Prayer is the only Answer

      • Stan Marsh

        Praying achieves nothing because even if there is a God it does not intervene.

        • ann bradley

          I agree. The Bible states that God takes care of those who help themselves. The Bible also states that God does not interterfere in the affairs of men. He gave us the world to take care of it and each other and every day, in every country we see the results of not heeding this simple but oh so effective Biblical teaching,

          • marla1

            I have stated that on this blog ,but the Americam fools expect God to take care of three hundred million in this country alone with out us helping to take care of ourselves!! God helps those who help themselves! And the thing we are suppose to call pres. and the Washington politicians are taking care of themselves with taking every thing we own> I oslima and 536 to there hundred million and we the people can’t get rid of them?? Stupid Americans!

    • bdm

      Agreed. Mr. Ibrahim’s accounts are invaluable to “read between the lines” of the articles from sources such as the New York Times and gaining a real understanding of the situation on the ground.

    • anything

      the religion itself is not the most primitive and brutal cult-like as you have described!! This religion is the most clean , developed and peaceful if you know it and using it right!!
      Unfortunately the human itself is the most primitive and brutal cult -like being- and even before Islam appeared or was already existing some people were using other religions to do primitive and brutal cult-like things.- oh and some people they dont even have to be religious to do primitive and brutal cult-like things.

        Not every terrorist is a muslim, but most terrorist are muslims….

      • seawasp

        You obviously have not read Sura 9 of the quran.

  • mollysdad

    On the Feast of Our Blessed Lady’s Assumption into heaven, the Muslim Brotherhood are slaughtered on the streets by the Egyptian Army. On this day of the Christians’ Purim, let us rejoice and be glad, for Esther has triumphed a second time, alleluia, alleluia.

    • swissgnome

      No Christian should rejoice in the slaughter or death of anyone who doesn’t have forgiveness. We should be weeping. The evil one laughs but we should cry as Jesus did: “father, forgive hem for they do not know what they are doing”

      • mollysdad

        Jesus was praying for the soldiers who crucified Him, as they did not know that Pontius Pilate had acquitted Him of any crime.

        The Muslim Brotherhood, however, do know what they are doing. For them to murder and despoil people is unconscionable by any standards. God’s judgement that they are guilty before Him has been revealed, and now these revolting infidels are receiving the punishment they deserve.

        • swissgnome

          Hmm. Roman soldiers couldn’t care less about who they hurt: most of them were quite brutal.
          I do understand he outrage raised by the cynical brutality of the brotherhood, and I’m not trying to minimise their crime. They will be rightly punished for their actions, if not on earth then before our Lord Jesus.
          However, Paul of Tarsus is an example of how God can turn the most opposed, violent hearts to Him in repentence. If we can, we pray for these people that they will see The Light.

          • mollysdad

            Roman soldiers cared about obeying orders, and obviously they presumed that Jesus had been found guilty of a capital crime. He had not.

            Jesus said that whoever believes the Gospel and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.

            Now we see God sending punishment from heaven as Muslims slaughter Muslims. All designed to bring sinners to repentance.

          • swissgnome

            I don’t think we’re far apart on judgement, mollysdad. Just we ought to have a sense of dread and awe when we see it in action.
            I get angry deep inside at funerals. It reminds me of the awful cosmic consequences of sin and shame that is visited upon generation upon generation. I felt awe and dread last week standing on a mountainside in the alps realising the beauty of our planet is carved from the total destructive flood and judgement of the world.
            I get angry when so many turn own the offer of the gospel week after week in my town. I see women in burkas and bearded men who are blinded by the evil one and pray that grace and mercy triumph over the blackness in the souls.

  • Arius1071

    Like the Western media that covered up the mass murder of the Soviets in the 1930′s the media today does the same for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The Bush/Obama policy in the Middle East is causing immense suffering for Christians in Egypt, Iraq, and Syria. Let us hope that we are seeing the collapse of US policy in the region.

  • shearwater

    We live in a moral universe. Apparently, Muslim terrorist groups do not believe this. Some day these thugs will be judged by God and they will be punished. “Vengeance is mine. I will repay., says the Lord. Talk about Allah being the most merciful and most gracious, I ask, “To whom?” Certainly not these copts or any other Christians, Jews or non-Muslims.

  • Pap

    The western media is either unbelievably naive or just refuses to admit that its world view is flawed. CNN’s attempt to report unbiasedly is laughable. The bravest people on earth right now are the anti-Morsi Egyptians who want to preserve their great heritage.

    • Dennis

      The western media is owned the elite that are working on the New World Order to come into effect.

      • marla1

        you are right but Americans are to stupid and gullible to do anything. There are sent to die for the middle east but won’t die for their own people !!! They cannot kill even if their life depends on it in the middle east!! Thanks to that communist muslim who is stinking up the white house!

    if we believe the Bible, it states no man’s government will ever work. It says in end times God’s people will be put to death or imprisoned. People have been put to death for believing in the Living God, and just like the Holy Roman Empire, church and state are going to join together again, and rule the whole world and persecute all God’s people they can. God will be back before He allows the whole world to be destroyed, but who ever does live in those end times are warned it will be very bad, but to stand your ground and don’t deny him, if you save yourself by not acknowledging him, you are out of the Book of Life forever. “The Alpha and the Omega” He is the beginning and the end, so he already knows the outcome.Some of the leaders in the end are not necessarily aware that they are enabling the rising of “the beast”, or “government”, the wh*** riding the beast will be church and state together.Nothing will get better til He comes to rule with His government, then all these guilty people,( dead and alive) will be judged and all the slaughtered innocents will be justified and comforted and will live forever…
