Mideast Egypt Sectarian Clashes

Three Egyptian Coptic students are facing charges of insulting Islam

Three Coptic students will face trial this week in Egypt for allegedly insulting Islam after they appeared in a video which showed them mocking Muslim prayers. Their teacher—who filmed the video—has already been sentenced to three years in prison on charges of insulting Islam. The students are expected to stand trial on Thursday.

    Geez. You live in the middle of a Muslim oligarchy that, given their religious zealotry stones people to death for less and yet, you’re stupid enough to make a movie mocking their hate filled, bigoted, misogynistic, 11 century, pseudo religion. This quite obviously falls under the category of WTF were they thinking? I somehow don’t think they’re going to get a suspended sentence and a hundred hours of community service for this little prank despite the fact that Egypt is one of the more progressive of these hell holes. But, on the plus side we’ll get to see if our Government and Amnesty International will fight for their right to insult someone else’s religion in their own country.
