Cairo court sentences 7 Christians to death for role in anti-Islam video; Update: 8 sentenced to death

On Wednesday, an Egyptian court sentenced seven Christians to death for their role in producing “Innocence of Muslims,” the crummy YouTube video that members of the Obama administration spent weeks blaming for the death of four Americans in Benghazi. In September, Egypt announced it would try the people involved in the film for “harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information.”

Some of those sentenced to death by the Cairo court are reportedly American citizens. All were tried and sentenced in absentia.

We eagerly await the Obama administration’s response to this latest outrage from the Religion of the Perpetually Insulted.


As this story develops, we learn that a total of eight people were sentenced to death by the Egyptian court.

The AP reports, “The case was largely symbolic since the seven men and one woman are outside of Egypt and unlikely to travel to the country to face the charges.”

      And that is why a “Progressive” government does its best to proliferate laws and regulations.

      Several university law schools have done studies, and while the exact numbers vary, they agreed that at this point any particular citizen on any particular day has violated at least two conflicting laws or regulations that carry minimum jail time.

      This is how the socialist works. You’re kept off balance and you can be jailed anytime at the State’s Whim— so you see the advantage of cooperation, don’t you, comrade?

    Didn’t this Mohammed thing start out with a goat?

      No, but the adult version finishes with one!

    If Obama can call out a video for disgrace, then he sure can call out an Egyptian court for sentencing 7 to death in absentia. Mr. President, are you and your administration going to spend weeks criticizing Egypt for their actions? A little more harmful don’t you think? Calling on a sentence for death on a video. I want to see the president say something about this one. I won’t hold my breath. I think Obama needs to just keep his mouth shut at times. He can be dangerous to our country when he speaks without thinking. This administration has been doing a lot of talking about things that makes our country look bad, disorganized, incompetent and not truthful. When will the people of this country call our government out on these things? The government needs morality check!

    Instead of calling him the Prophet Muhammad, they should call him, ” the Pedophile Muhammad.” Just sayin.

    Obama tried the video makers in the court of public opinion (also in absentia) and blamed the murder of four Americans on them. Does anyone really expect Obama to reverse course and challenge Egypt’s court ruling which did the EXACT same thing Obama did?

    I hope all seven are prepared for a midnight knock at the door from the feds.

    Arab Spring, hah! Is there a more screwed up country today?

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    How did I miss out on this?

    I wonder, if I submit my name, could they add me in an addendum?

    I’d even travel to face the charges, at their expense, though…

    My price to face the charges would be one hour uncensored & unmolested (no irony intended) live video hookup to a place of my choosing.

    I think I’d be fairly safe— I look nothing like a camel…

    Oh well then AP, if its just symbolic, we shouldn’t worry about it. You know, because there’s not violent Muslims who would murder these folks outside of Egypt. Remember that time when Salmon Rushdie was safe if he traveled anywhere but the Middle East? Good times.
