Translating Words, Interpreting Events

Video: Christian Girls Gang Raped to Screams of “Allahu Akbar” in Egypt

Print Friendly

Earlier this week a video began circulating on Arabic-language websites purportedly showing a crowd of Muslims in Egypt assaulting and raping two Christian women—on a crowded street and in broad daylight.  The video opens with Muslim men repeatedly shouting the word “Nasara”—the Koran’s derogatory appellation for “Christians”—as they identify two Coptic women who proceed to scream and run, only to be knocked to the ground by several Muslim men who savagely attack them, strip their clothing, and try to gang rape them.  Throughout, the women scream in terror while the men shout “Allahu Akbar,” that is, “Allah is Great,” as well as chant the shehada, or Islamic profession of faith: la ilaha illa Allah (“There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the prophet of Allah”). None of the many passersby intervene in any way.

Coptic girl screams as her assailants manage to strip off her blue pants completely exposing her thighs (between seconds :30-:35 of the video).

Little other information about the video accompanies the Arabic sites posting it.  So I did some searching; apparently the events recorded in the video occurred in 2009.  As for the context, I found a pro-Muslim article titled (in translation) “The truth about the video of Coptic girls raped in the street.”  Here I expected to encounter denial and dissemble, claims that the video was a “hoax,” that these are not even Egyptians, etc., etc.  Surprisingly, the article confirmed the authenticity of the video and what it depicts.  The main quibble it offered was that the video was in fact made in 2009 and that the Coptic activists who recently uploaded  it are troublemakers trying to create “sectarian strife.”

Much more interesting are the arguments the article makes to justify the rape of Christians: it claims that Muslim rage (for this particular incident) was prompted by accusations that a Coptic man had raped a Muslim girl.   Accordingly, Muslims were merely retaliating in like manner (along with raping Christian girls, Muslims also rioted, burned, and destroyed Christian shops and homes, as is customary).

Of course, even if all this is true—if Muslims were merely exercising “an eye for an eye” logic—the ultimate significance of the video is this:  If a Coptic man raped a Muslim woman, he certainly did not do so in accordance to any Christian teaching.  He did it as a base man exercising base instincts—instincts which have nothing to do with race or religion.

On the other hand, what are we to make of Muslims screaming Islam’s two most distinct slogans—“Allahu Akbar” or “God is Great” and Islam’s very profession of faith, “there is no god but Allah”—while raping Christian women?   What does that say about Islam, or at least how Muslims—from the videotaped rapists to the Muslim clerics who issue fatwas permitting rape—understand Islam?

The brief video follows.  No English subtitles are necessary, for all the sounds made are universally intelligible—cries and screams from Christian women and “Allahu Akbars” from Muslim men—the universal sounds of suffering and supremacism.

    And this is supposed to be a religion? It sounds more like a bunch of mentally ill homicidal maniacs. You all know that if this escalates much further there will be a war and I mean soon. If we allow these idiots to infiltrate our country unabated, and we do not act, we’re in for some major shit. Why do we continue to allows these morons in our country, I mean they have already professed their hatred for all of us in America, they are going to try every thing they can to destroy us. And they will, which they already have, attack us from within

    There is no way to justify this behavior, they merely rationalize it with Mohammad’s violent example and Mohammad’s (not the Bible’s) allah’s sanction in Mohammad’s Qur’an.

    Rape Country Egypt. Democracy for the Muslim people in action. And our USA, and even less wise England and France have aided, and continue aiding, this democracy. Can’t help but recall that the democratic “people power” revolution in Indonesia in 1998 was accompanied by pogroms of the Buddhist and Christian Chinese minority and mass rapes of Chinese women and girls by Muslim crowds, as our obscene Madeline Albright and obscene Al Gore praised the rapists as “reformaci” “pro-democracy activists”.

    Why has this not been broadcast all over the world and in the UK? I am not devout of any faith I am a mere human so can not justify, understand or relate their actions to any scriptures…however what I do know is these particular individuals are dangerous they are psychopaths who have been brainwashed by other extremists..I have Muslim friends and they would be absolutely disgusted by this. I wanted to help those women I felt so helpless just watching and then I got angry, why did no one do anything…? forget religion when this happens we are all HUMAN for crying out loud have some morals. I don’t care what certain people think about the UK but that would NOT happen here and that is why everyone comes over here because of freedom of speech..yeah we are such a cruel country taking in everyone from other country’s because their own is out of control. The women in that country must be living in fear for thier lives..I have one word for those animals in the video KARMA.

    • ratonis

      They are inspired by Allah. That is the problem. They are doing exactly what the Qur’an exhorts Muslims to do. Terrorize. Humiliate the infidel. There is nothing in Islam that would PREVENT them from doing what they are doing.

  • Joe

    Typical muzzies. The Democrats want to immigrate them in enmasse like Britain did so we can have this happening on the streets of America like it does in London now.

  • INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR

    And we should welcome these animals into our country of democracy and religious freedom so that they can undermine and disgrace us? We as American’s need to take our country back. Law enforcement can’t do anything about the problem of radical islam in our country because they are bound by ridiculous laws protecting these terrorists who are invading america! Buying up franchise businesses everywhere, and squirming into our economy on a large scale. Ever been to a 7/11? Next time you visit one of these fine establishments, take time to ask who the owner is. Bet it’s not a James Johnson. America’s policy to welcome “qualified” immigrants needs to change. If you want to scream allah, blow shit up, invade our country, kill our soldiers, rape our women that travel abroad, kill innocent people who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wake up America! When was the last time you heard of a illegal criminal organization consisting of radical Christians in the middle east trying to snuff out Muslims???!
