Tareq Ali, Khaled Afify, and Magdy Essam

It was announced on the main stage at Rabaa Al-Adaweya that a Christian girl named Mary from Sohag announced her conversion to Islam to condemn what happened to peaceful demonstrators in front of the Republican Guard headquarters.

Activity on the stage began a short while ago, where slogans in favor of legitimacy and in support of Dr. Mohamed Morsy were chanted.

Dr. Salah Sultan, secretary-general of the High Council for Islamic Affairs, said, “I felt very sad for what the army did in firing live ammunition on peaceful protesters, noting that there was excessive violence from the police and army.”

He stressed that the press conference of the Armed Forces and police spread many lies, and sarcastically told the protesters to take out all the alcohol and whiskey from the tents.


The criminal, slaughterer, treacherous murderer of those praying is transferring a big number of Armed Forces conscripts to Cairo railway station

Sherif Mansour

The criminal, slaughterer, trecherous murderer of those praying is transferring a big number of Armed Forces conscripts to Cairo station by train. All of them are wearing civilian clothing so that they can be put in Tahrir Square in order to fool people into thinking that they are supporters of the oppressive coup. It seems that Central Security Forces troops were not enough, so the traitor was forced to seek recourse to army soldiers…El-Sissi is currently really perturbed and confused….I urge this to be shared widely.

Ahmed Mansour reveals: A Jew in Egypt’s seat of power


Abdallah Metawaa

Well known broadcaster Ahmed Mansour has said that Adly Mansour, head of the Supreme Constitutional Court and who has been appointed President of Egypt by the army, is considered to be a Seventh Day Adventist, which is a Jewish sect.

Ahmed Mansour revealed in a post on his Facebook page that Adly tried to approach Christianity but the Coptic pope refused to baptise him.

Ahmed Mansour mentioned ElBaradei’s position when he said that he would not take part in a Shura Council that denies the holocaust!!! This is a token gesture offered to the Jews by ElBaradei so that he can become President of the Republic in the fake elections that the military will guard and whose results they will falsify in their interests…All with the approval of America, Israel and the Arabs, of course.

Ahmed Mansour said in his post, “this is the glorious scene of the future of Egypt and the Arabs, who competed to recognise the coup, the coup whose drum the secularists are dancing to…even to the extent that one of them, who hates religion, Islam and the nation announced that he has been reborn…and that his date of birth is 30/6, that is, the day the army of defeats staged a coup against ballot box legitimacy.

Counsellor Adly Mansour – head of the Supreme Constitutional Court and who will temporarily hold the post of President of Egypt after being appointed by the Armed Forces after the removal of President Mohamed Morsy – will begin his duties today after swearing an oath before the General Assembly of the Constitutional Court.

Imaginary protests in Downtown Cairo and the streets of Giza


Reda Abdel-Wodoud

In an attempt to persuade citizens to take to the streets and participate in protests, a number of cars with microphones attached to them sporadically moved round the streets of Downtown Cairo and some streets in Giza playing recordings of protests. The loud noise caused annoyance to shop owners and residents.

A number of citizens sitting in coffee shops expressed their anger and astonishment at this attempt to rile up the street and delude citizens who preferred to stay at home because of the scenes of violence we are witnessing on television screens into thinking that protests have reached his street and house.

Commenting on the killing of Shias in Abo Nomros…Doctor El-Barr: Unjust killing is prohibited


Doctor Abdel-Rahman El-Barr, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guidance Bureau said that it is not permitted to kill anyone without justification, pointing out that Islam considers blood sacred and it may not be spilt whatever the mistake committed.

He added, in press statements commenting on the Shia killings in the Abo Mosallem area of Giza, “we have a system and law for holding to account wrongdoers and those who incite strife. They may not be killed outside the framework of the law”.

El-Barr made clear that the individuals who committed this act are not Islamists who truly know the sanctity of Muslim blood, pointing out that students of knowledge know with conviction the sanctity of blood and the prohibition on killing a Muslim whatever mistake he committed.

He added, “Maybe it was [the Shia victims] who provoked the people by what they were doing and so the people wanted to kill them, but they had a duty to present him [sic] to the relevant authorities who would hold him to account for his actions within the framework of the law”.

Religious endowments in Assiut denies presence of Imam in Sodfa preaching Shia Islam


Sheikh Ahmed Shehata, head of the Religious Endowments Authority in Sodfa, Assiut denied reports carried by some satellite channels and news websites that an Endowments imam is spreading Amidi Shia Islam in one of Sodfa’s biggest mosques.

“This has no basis in fact and is completely untrue. The matter is no more than bitter rancour and animosity between Sufi sects in competition for leadership of Sufi sects,” Shehata said.

He added, “there is no such thing as Amidi Shia Islam amongst the various Shia sects. The intention was to spread confusion about the mosque’s imam for purposes of this animosity and which are unconnected with the Endowments.”

“This Imam that they are talking about is one of the most disciplined in his sermons: the sermon from last Friday that they are talking about dealt with the extent of the danger posed to Islam and Egypt by the spread of Shia Islam,” Shehata added.

The Endowments head stressed that Sufis must distance their mosques and imams from disputes because we are fully aware of what goes in mosques and we are Sunnis and could never allow anyone to preach anything but Sunni Islam.

Doctor Wahdan: Al-Azhar is the fortress of Sunni Islam and there is no place for Shiism in Egypt


El-Sharqeyya, Ahmed Mahmoud

Doctor Mohamed Taha, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau and head of the Brotherhood’s pedagogy department affirmed that the Egyptian people and government will not accept the existence of the spread of Shia Islam in Egypt under any circumstances.

During his speech – given at a forum organised by the Muslim Brotherhood and Freedom and Justice Party in the town of Awlad Saqr, El-Sharqeyya, to clarify the vision of current events – Wahdan added that Jewish tourists, people without a religion and cow worshippers come to Egypt…Thus is it logical that a tourist would come for two days to spread his creed?!

He also added that Al-Azhar was founded in order to spread the Shia faith but has become a lighthouse and fortress of Sunni doctrine, and will remain so with God’s will.

He concluded his comments by mentioning the necessity of the Muslim Brotherhood immersing themselves in community work and fulfilling people’s needs, saying, “We want people to see our beneficence, and our motto in the current stage is, ‘a strong will untouched by weakness’”.

The forum was also attended by Al-Azhar University professor Doctor Mostafa Abdel-Halim, former MP El-Sayyed El-Atweel and Doctor Ali Salama Amin, secretary general of the Freedom and Justice Party in Awlad Saqr.
