More Proof Egypt is a Taliban State
We've known this for a while, but a new example of persecution of minorities by the resurgent Islamist powers-that-be pretty much puts the nail in this coffin -- interestingly, in another case of blasphemy by cartoon.
So, the details. A 17-year old Coptic Christian posts cartoons deemed to be mocking the Muslim prophet Mohammed. In reaction, Muslims with the endemic faulty impulse control we've seen many times before decide that the most reasonable, rational response is to indiscriminately attack Christians and burn down their homes.
No word on whether the thugs or arsonists received any punishment whatsoever. But as for the youth who posted the cartoons in the first place -- well, he can look forward to three years in prison.
Three years in prison for "insulting Islam" and "the Prophet", the court ordered.
Sharia doesn't just guide the Egyptian constitution. It is the Egyptian constitution.
