    More from the “Religion of Peace.” This poor cameraman deserved better. RIP.

    Oddly enough I’m pleasantly surprised she wasn’t gang raped before/after being shot. Guess even those 13th century animals can surprise even the biggest skeptic. All praise be to allah.

      They were to busy claiming to be the “Religion of Peace” while burning and looting Christian churches to engage in any rape. They will get to that later, their cards a bit full right now.

      We keep having to lower our standards. How sad that we have to look at someone being shot and say at least she wasn’t raped. I agree completely with you, but I’m tired of it.

    And we’re still going to give Egypt money… Shameful.

    Twitchy Team, you have Mick Deen’s age as 62 in this article but 61 in follow up article. Which is correct?

    Most certainly they shot her first in order to easily subdue her.
