Egypt Issues Arrest Warrants for Terry Jones and Anti-Islam Filmmaker


news.yahoo.com

On Tuesday, Egypt’s general prosecutor issued eight arrest warrants for anti-Muslim U.S. pastor Terry Jones, producerNakoula Basseley Nakoula and six other Coptic Christiansassociated with the incendiary film Innocence of Muslims, the  The prosecutor’s office says the seven men and one woman could face the death penalty and are charged with “harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information.” It’s not clear where the other Coptic Christians live (an names them as Adel Riad, Morris Sadek, Nabil Bissada, Esmat Zaklama, Elia Bassily, Ihab Yaacoub and Jack Atallah) but the prosecutor says they are outside of Egypt at the moment. Meanwhile Jones and Nakoula live in the free lands of Florida and California, respectively, where it’s not a crime to make or promote a movie that depicts the prophet Muhammad as an effete homosexual.

However, that doesn’t mean their security situation isn’t a major legal headache for U.S. officials. As the U.S. is in a tricky position. “If the government were to overtly protect Nakoula, it could be seen by some as tacit approval of the film, and further enflame protests. Leaving him to fend for himself could have deadly consequences. There are examples of violence against others who have written or spoken against Muhammad.” So far, the government has offered some assistance, in the form of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies escorting Nakoula to a meeting with probation officials in the dead of night.

RELATED:

One would assume the U.S. would reject any Egyptian extradition request on First Amendment grounds, which could inflame Egyptian sentiment further. As Lawrence Rosenthal, a professor at Chapman University’s School of Law,  . ‘‘The thing that makes this particularly difficult for the United States is that … we treat what most of us would refer to as hate speech as constitutionally protected speech and Americans don’t appreciate, I think, how unusual this position seems in the rest of the world.” You can say that again.

    Is there a bounty on Terry Jones? I’m strapped!

    Execution for heresy? You’re on your own with that one.

    Egypt is trying to appease the masses. Wasn’t it Egypt who actually showed the film clip on TV to deliberately incite people? Egyptians were actually paid to demonstrate but the govt. isn’t revealing who the mysterious paymaster was. This reminds me of Turkey’s empty bluster after the Mavi Marmara murders. It’s all a show folks!

    “Basheer so true, this along with the firing of the generals are good moves by Egypt.”

    DEAR MJ

    Salaam

    Thanks for the observation.

    As you know I have been spending quite some time interviewing and speaking to Satan himself, and I enjoy doing it, but this woman is worse than Satan. Miss Leigh Sales has hate written on her face and every word she utters is full of lies, hate, disinformation and venom.

    Of course, Brother Mustafa is not a “preacher of hate”, and Miss Leigh knows this very well as she has gone through the ‘pain’ to find out whether he was preaching hate or not. Strangely enough, she should have known this was not true, but by some kind of (Jewish) miracle all she found was one fake website, most probably set up by MOSSAD, Jews or Zionists, with totally fabricated statements that Brother Mustafa confirms are not from Hizb ut Tahrir, and which she almost defiantly ‘handed over’ to him as HER evidence. And, she really did not seem concerned in the least that she was wrong, or caught up using disinformation live, when Brother Mustafa said “this does not look like our website”. Her main concern was exclusively about Jews and Israel.

    “ERADICATING ISRAEL AND PURIFYING THE EARTH OF JEWISH FILTHS”. That is certainly hateful, isn’t it?

    This is all she could come up with as evidence, a fake website! She does not give a damn about Muslims, about their suffering, about them being exterminated by the millions, starved, persecuted, exiled, tortured, demonised, and raped, and so on.

    “DO YOU THIK THAT JEWS SHOULD BE ERADICATED?” This is all she is interested in, and she even condones the slaughter the West and the Jews (like Bernard Henri Lévi, Nicolas Sarkozy, Laurent Fabius…) carried out in Libya because she argues Colonel Ghaddafi committed the capital crime of “not doing a great job for its citizens”!

    On the good side, Brother Mustafa managed to say without being interrupted (which shows that Miss Leigh is not that vicious!) what Hizb ut Tahrir and I have been saying for decades now, that WE NEED TO ESTABALISH A KHILAAFAH AND SHARI’A LAW IN OUR OWN MUSLIM LANDS!

    Miss Leigh proves that she is just another stooge for Israel and the Jews or Jewish interest by trying to insinuate that Br Mustafa was condoning the killing of the US ambassador. Her logic stinks.

    After admitting that she heard Br Mustafa say on a Youtube video: “American ambassadors should not be in Muslim countries. They should leave and go home.”, which he confirms, she asks Br Mustafa if he was saying THEREFORE THAT THE US AMBASSADOR WAS ASKING FOR IT BECAUSE HE WAS THERE, which, of course, he was not saying!

    Lastly, our brave Miss Leigh seemed so concerned about a child carrying a sign saying:

    “BEHEAD ALL THOSE WHO INSULT PROPHET MUHAMMAD!”

    But, she shows no concern at all about all the Muslims that the West is beheading, bombing, killing, holocausting, on a daily basis.

    But, I bet if Brother Mustafa would explain himself and Hizb ut Tahrir policy independently, no mainstream media would air it at all, including her.

    Yet, on the whole, we have to give the she-devil her due, as she allowed Brother Mustapha to say what he wanted to say and toned down her aggressiveness near the end. So, she is not that bad after all, and may even make a good Muslimah, insha’Allah!

    I am glad to see our Brother Mustafa keeping his calm. I would not have been able to. But, my initial remark (which I have removed) was that our Brother Mustafa was a blooming idiot for exposing himself and Muslims to ridicule like our Br Dr Tariq Ramadan does so often. This nonsense about “peaceful protest” by calling for street picnics where the innocent gets injured and even killed should stop! Sixteen got killed today FOR NOTHING in Pakistan!

    Why not PEACEFUL BOYCOTT INSTEAD?

    I went shopping to buy wholemeal sliced bread several times, but each time I found it had E471 in its ingredients, which is en anzyme obtained either from pork (cheaper to make) or beef. So, I did not buy it. Out of all the drinks they sell in the shops, I buy only juices pressed from fruits and with no artificial junk like aspartame. I try to avoid meat as much as possible because meat is a killer and eat as ‘natural’ as possible although I have not far to go in life. My grand daughters want me to live longer and I pray to God to give me health to be able to take care of them as long as possible! I do not waste food or money and do not buy junk like most City Muslims do! So, protesting is picnic (in my view) while boycotting hurts the usurious Jews and the war mongers EXACTLY where it should! Now, it is useless to protest when we support Muslim governments that are members of the Zionist United Nations Dictatorship! We will not be able to establish the Khilaafah as long as we bow down to UN dictates!

    Without the Khilaafah, Islam will remain in the gutter and Muslims will continue to be exterminated!

    Thanks again.
    Salaam.

    The Egyptian masses are genuine but I am not into reading the hearts of people.

    Saw a news report yesterday, on Press TV.. A young Muslim woman, living in London, was asked if she thought that the provocation of this film, should have been ignored by Muslims. She said No, why should Muslims ignore blatant provocation. She also said that this provocation, had united Muslims globally, as no other issue has..

    MJ, excellent video, Taji Mustafa is articulate, and precise, a worthy spokesperson for Muslims..

    “The Egyptian masses are genuine…”

    These are the same masses who allowed the Ghazza Holocaust and even helped in carrying it out!

    Assalamu alaikum, Brother Basheer, Thank you for that interesting explanation of the dynamics in the program with Mr. Mustafe.
    I totally agree with you regarding protesting , for sure, there are more effective means of dealing with the usurious system and what is so frustrating is that it would be easy for the leadership in the Muslim world to boycott effectively many assets of the enemy but they are bought for slaves.

    I used to wonder why hypo- critters and traitors are worst than enemies but with time you realize that they are the mean spirited, cowardly means without which the enemy could not gain ground.

    Your grand daughters are blessed to have you in their lives! By the way, I heard lamb is not as contaminated as beef and to be honest, and I think you will agree, freshly squeezed juices taste sooo much better than the store bought stuff.
