Egyptian TV Host Says Jihadi Attacks On Churches Are ‘OK,’ But Not On Mosques

An Egyptian TV host went off script Friday, saying that it was justifiable for jihadis to attack churches, but not for them to attack mosques.

The Sada al-Balad Media Group quickly suspended host Rasha Magdi after her remarks, which she made in reference to the recent Sinai mosque attack in which ISIS militants killed 305 people, according to Egypt Independent. Magdi claimed that it was understandable for jihadists to attack Christians since jihadists view them as enemies of Islam and was therefore mutual violence, but that a jihadist attack on a mosque was an attack on their own.

    Was that on CBC?

    • Mark Matis

      No. Of course not. She’s a CNN employee.

    Isn’t she just quoting the quran? What’s the big deal?

    • WalterBannon

      she was quoting one of Trudeau’s cabinet ministers

    just another moderate muslim expressing the religion of peace’s love for all

    Big deal, that is already policy in Canada. I was communicating with some of my Christian friends in Egypt over the internet last night, and they wondered if our prime minister is a sodomite.

      He is. Like his mother’s husband.

    • Watchman

      Probably not, but if there are votes in it he’s probably willing to give it a try and become good at it just on principle.

      Maybe he swings both ways like old Pierre. Although in light of all the tearful scenes and attendance of just about every homosexual event, who knows.

  • Maggat

    Sounds as if she may be a card carrying member of Canada’s liberal elite.

  • What a silly b!#ch.

    • Alain

      Which one? The one who pushing M103?

    She’s Western looking and not covered. This is an example of why it is meaningless to pretend that banning Muslim attire, customs, etc. will change them. Some of the strongest shariah-pushing Muslims are the ones who deceptively appear Western (at least on the outside).

    • Watchman

      The problem is the press loves these Muslims that appear to be modern, rational people with Western ethics and morality since they promote these as being the true Muslims and the violent jihadists as not being true Muslims. These ‘moderate’ Muslims are the sea that the ‘extremist’ Muslims swim in, and will spawn some of the next generation of ‘extremist’ Muslims.

      If you have a bowl of M&Ms that have a few that are undetectably poisoned, it is no reasonable argument for you to say that I should eat some because the vast majority are perfectly safe and that the poisoned M&Ms are not real M&Ms. I don’t care, I don’t want any because of the danger.

    • Alain

      That Muslim attire with the face hidden is only predominant in the West where it is to give the finger to the host country and its citizens; demonstrating their supremacy.

  • Sid Falco

    Just being honest. If you were to ask all of the “new Canadians™” that same question you’d get the same answer more often than not.

  • Del Evans

    You show me a moderate muslim and I will show you a liar

  • DMB

    What a promiscuous slut this women is for not covering her face never mind her hair. She should be wearing the appropriate attire and I do believe this is it for Egyptian Muslim women!

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    That uncovered face of hers will look a lot better after an acid wash.
