You’d think Islam would be used to it by now… Egyptian writer to face trial for ‘insulting Islam’

Egypt’s prosecutor has referred a female writer to trial for allegedly insulting Islam by criticising the slaughter of animals during a major religious festival, a judicial official said on Saturday.

“Happy massacre,” Fatima Naoot wrote on her Facebook page in October during Eid al-Adha, the Muslim feast of sacrifice.

Animals are slaughtered during Eid to commemorate the willingness of Abraham to fulfil God’s command to sacrifice his own son, although in the end God provided him with a sheep.

“Massacre committed by men over the past 10 centuries and followed by men each year with a smile,” Naoot wrote at the time.

“Annual massacre observed because of a nightmare of one (prophet) about his son… ,” she wrote in Arabic.

“Although the nightmare has passed for the prophet and his son, each year helpless animals pay with their lives the price of this sacred nightmare.”

Naoot, who is Muslim, deleted her posts from Facebook after controversy erupted about them.

    Bridget Bardot was heavily critisized by muslims AND frenchmen when she deplored the same thing going on in residential nieghbourhoods across France. It is just a celebration of muslim blood lust.and should be banned.

    In the suburbs of Kanata the 90’s a local muslim kept a kid in his yard that all the local infidel children would pet and comb it’s fur, and of course the inevitable happened.The muslim slit the throat of the poor goat of course in front of the young children causing all the attendant trauma one would expect.The muslim told local news that he had done this not to frighten the children but to teach them about his Islamic culture.I often wonder about those children and what they may think of islam today.

  • This woman is a “secular Muslim” trapped inside a system she cannot change, criticize, or quit. You can help.

    Insult Islam and Mohammad as often as you can. The cult of death can be defeated. But it requires people with courage to speak up to the face of evil.

    Tell anyone who will listen and those who won’t.

    If she had a Muslim-Free Islam-Free zone she could migrate to would she still be called a “Muslim” today?
