Egypt: Morsi Incited Shia Murders

After being murdered by a Sunni mob, Hassan Shehata’s mutilated corpse was dragged around the streets

It seems the more time passes, the more the name of Muhammad Morsi — former Egyptian president and Muslim Brotherhood leader — appears in connection with violence and bloodshed.

Earlier, for example, a Libyan document implicated Morsi with the U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi.

Now, days after the brutal mob attack and murder of Sheikh Hassan Shehata and four other Shias in Egypt in June 2013, a video of an Egyptian Salafi sheikh preaching against the Shia has appeared where he makes the following assertion: “President Muhammad Morsi has issued orders for national security, to follow and arrest all Shias in Egypt.”
