Egypt: Video of extrajudicial executions offers glimpse of hidden abuses by military in North Sinai

Unarmed Men in Sinai

 A video has emerged that appears to show members of the Egyptian military shooting unarmed detainees to death at point-blank range in the Sinai Peninsula and staging the killings to look as if they had happened in combat.
The leaked video, which was posted on social media on Thursday, could undercut claims made by the Egyptian Army in December that the men were suspected terrorists who died in a fight with the military.
The video was released the same day that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met in Egypt with its president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, to discuss improving their countries’ military relationship. It also comes after human rights groups accused the Egyptian military of killing up to 10 men in January in a staged counterterrorism raid in Sinai.
The three-minute video, which was released through a channel associated with the 




Muslim Brotherhood, appears to depict part of a raid that the Egyptian Army highlighted in a Facebook post on Dec. 6, 2016. That post included photos of three bloody men in a grassy area with rifles next to them. The post said they had been killed in a military raid on a terrorist base and an explosives storehouse.
Eight people were killed and four others were arrested, the military said on Facebook in December, as Egyptian armed forces “continued to tighten their security grip” in the Sinai Peninsula, where the country has waged a yearslong battle.
But the video shows no firefight and starts with soldiers mingling next to an armored truck in a sandy field scattered with bodies next to shrubs and grassy patches. But it does show the killing of at least three people. In one case, a soldier casually holds a rifle over a man on the ground and shoots him in the head. In another, soldiers escort a blindfolded man into the field, place him on his knees and shoot him multiple times in the head and upper body.
The pro-state Egyptian news site Youm7 called the video a fabrication carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned in the country, and said the people in the video did not have Egyptian accents. An Egyptian military spokesman did not respond to a request for comment late Thursday.

 one point in the video, a man off camera tells a soldier in Arabic to shoot the captured men in a variety of places. “Don’t just do the head, O.K.? Don’t just do the head,” the person said.
In addition to the three men seen killed, the video shows two men lying on the ground who were apparently in the Facebook post. The same men included in the Facebook post in December were apparently also shown in a military video shared on YouTube in November for an operation that claimed to have killed eight terrorists “during clashes.”
Sarah Leah Whitson, the executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East and North Africa Division, which released a report about the January killings, said the group was investigating the latest video.
“We have not yet verified the video, and are working on it,” Ms. Whitson said in an email. “But it accords closely with our findings about other summary executions in Sinai and Cairo.”
Mokhtar Awad, a militancy expert at George Washington University, said the video was unlikely to be widely discussed on Egyptian news media because of emergency laws enacted by Mr. Sisi last week after suicide attacks by the Islamic State on two Christians churches on Palm Sunday.
“The worst thing I’ve seen before is of soldiers beating a guy,” Mr. Awad said. “We’ve never seen video from Sinai or elsewhere showing an Egyptian serviceman killing someone in cold blood.”
Together with the accusations of extrajudicial executions in Sinai in January, Mr. Awad said, it suggested “a growing level of impunity” in parts of the Egyptian military, particularly in Sinai where local emergency laws have been in place for years.
“It is a significant problem, and something that needs to be seriously addressed,” he said. “Otherwise things could head in a very problematic direction, of this somehow becoming a new normal.”

#ISIS terrorist is are #US Army



(This ASTONISHING PICTURE has just been tweeted by British MP George Galloway; it’s astonishing because it exposes US troops posing as ISIS TERRORISTS…So there are obviously factions within the US military and government who are engaged in terrorism; it’s not difficult to see now how easily ISIS will enter into America; especially if there are those within her own military and government willing to facilitate the terror!!!)









 



Israel Trains ISIS Terrorists in Sinai









150 Americans now involved with ISIS army as 'virtual caliphate' aggressively recruits terrorists on the Internet and the FBI says 'It's not even close to being under control'

#Halloween and Bigotry #islamophobia


Halloween and Bigotry



Most of us remember the scandal last Halloween, when a couple of guys decided the tragedy surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin would make fun cosplay. 
Blackface and all…

And this year will be no different. People will still decide that ethnic identities make great costumes, that horrible news stories are funny, and that bigotry can be fun.

But are these costumes funny to you? …



Or how about posts such as this one below?



The fact that so many people use Halloween as a time to promote their hate and bigotry is frustrating for me on a personal level, but it goes beyond that. When does the hate stop? When do people begin to wake up and say; yes we have freedom to express ourselves, but this is not okay?















Costumes such as Native American, Sexy Burqa Girl, Jihadist, Or anything with blackface… they are not funny. 







They come from a dark place in someone’s mind. They are not only hurtful to the people they portray(falsely), but at times can spread a hate that incites violence and hate crimes.
Please think about these things when you choose your costumes.

A powerful call Azan #islam #muslim #islamophobia

A powerful call Azan







Anyone who's ever visited a predominitely Muslim country has probably heard the call to prayer. Most recently, in the news, there was a couple who sued over the call to prayer. They didn't want the Azan to interrupt their vacation, regardless that they were guests in a foreign country. Wether you love it or hate it, your opinion is molded by the influences of your life. But, what if you could hear it for the first time without bias? Without prejudice? Without any knowledge of what it meant?



What if you were an innocent 3 year old American child? The world still holding all it's mystery and goodness, you're still able to feel hope and faith without fear. What must it be like to hear the Azan in that state? Surely it must be wonderous. 
Luckily we have the chance to see that happen. In a video, popular on youtube, you can see her face. Stunned she looks around, trying to understand what she's hearing and where it's coming from, as she asked her father to explain. Her face hold so much emotion and fascination. She isn't offended. She isn't indifferent. She is enthralled by what she hears. At one moment she stops with a look on her tiny little face that is indescribable. Searching, both inside and out, for what it is she's hearing and feeling. It's pure. 
To watch it now, I can feel the amazement. And maybe, this little 3 year old girl can teach us all something. To forget the things we've been conditioned to think. To stop and listen. To feel.

#Muslim woman attacked on Vienna train

A 37-year-old Muslim woman from Vienna has complained to police after being attacked by a woman whilst travelling on Vienna’s metro.



She believes that the woman, who hit her in the face, did so because she was wearing a headscarf. Police said they believed the attacker was “disturbed”.

Zeliha Cicek is the third Muslim to have been assaulted in Vienna in the last month.

Cicek, a school teacher and mother of three children, is ethnically Turkish. She said she was talking to her sister on an U3 underground train on her mobile phone when the woman started shouting at her in English. “I calmly told her she could speak to me in German and suddenly she stood up and slapped me in the face. I dropped my phone and it broke, I was so shocked,” she said.

An English man came to Cicek’s aid but the angry woman scratched his face. She got out of the train at Stephansplatz – and despite Cicek screaming that she had attacked her the woman was able to flee without being stopped.

Cicek told the Kurier newspaper that she didn’t believe that the woman was drunk or mad. “The English man also thought that she had a problem with me wearing the headscarf,” she said.


In August two elderly Muslim ladies wearing headscarves were attacked in Favoritenstraße. Police were reportedly slow to respond to this incident, and only began questioning suspects days after.

Austria’s Islamic Religious Community Association said that Muslims often experience discrimination in Austria but that “it is not well documented”. Spokeswoman Carla Amina Baghajati said that the association plans to start collecting data on all religiously motivated incidents. However, she said she did not believe that the police lacked sensitivity to the issue.

Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner again warned against the “spread of hatred and incitement by populists. They become complicit when it comes to attacks on innocent people.”

#Yemen: Clashes Unsettle the Capital #Sanaa


Fighting between Shia rebels and Sunni militias in Yemen has escalated, with clashes on the edge of the capital.


Armed rebels, known as Houthis, shelled buildings of the state TV and the main Sunni Islamist party, Islah, in Sanaa.
Hundreds of residents have fled their homes and international flights to the city have been suspended.
About 40 people have been killed since Tuesday, reports say. The rebels have staged protests for weeks, demanding political and economic reforms.
President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi has dismissed the government and promised to review a decision to cut fuel subsidies.




Over the past few weeks the rebels have occupied protest camps on the road to the airport and staged sit-ins at ministry buildings, as well as clashed with fighters loyal to Islah.
On Thursday night Houthi fighters attacked the state television headquarters in Sanaa.
"The Houthi group is continuing to shell the television building with all kinds of weapons until this moment," the channel said on Friday morning.
As fighting intensified, foreign airlines suspended flights to the Sanaa.


"Arab and foreign airlines have decided to suspend their flights to Sanaa for 24 hours because of developments in the capital," the Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement on state news agency Saba.


The measures could be extended depending on the security situation, the statement added.
