Imagine being pulled out of your house by the police to face a festivity like mob (with music, drums beating and chanting) to be dragged to a car, all the while suffering blows and fists to your body by the crowds, and all of that because you are suspected of thinking/believing that there is no god.
Watch this video, for the most part of it you can easily think that this was taken at some middle eastern wedding or party, until the last few seconds when a person is pushed out in the frame and the crowd just goes wild on his person. This is how it looks like in the Arab world, if you have the miserable luck of being a non Muslim in a Muslim land you face a very real chance of having this – or worst – happen to you.
This is the face of the new Egypt, the “liberated” Egypt, the country who pulled itself out of the tyranny of the former government. In the past few days we all witnessed the explosion of Islamic zero tolerance to anything non Muslim, this was at the boiling point for many years and when the signal was given all believers followed the known pattern, there can be only one religion, there can be only one version.
We in the West did not go through hundreds of years of struggle to form this civilization to see it kneel down before a stone age animalistic and barbaric culture, and we should wake up and make sure this is understood.
