In yet another example of the organized and violent nature of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood protesters, yesterday’s report by the Guardianregarding the capture and murder of 25 Egyptian police officers goes some length in demonstrating the fact that the Brotherhood participants are not democracy-loving peaceful activists, an idea that has unfortunately been promoted by the mainstream media since the beginning of the crisis.
On Monday, Islamist militants forced two vehicles carrying the policemen to stop, where they then ordered the policemen out of the vans, and forced them to lie on the ground where they were then executed. The 25 police officers were in civilian clothes and were returning to their bases from having just enjoyed leave time. Their corpses were subsequently lined up by the roadside and photographed.
Initial reports coming out of Egypt suggested that the police had been killed when the militants fired a rocket-propelled grenade at their vehicles and the two minibuses carrying them back to the base. However, it is unclear if the initial reports were simply the result of confusion or if the rocket-propelled grenade was used as the mechanism to stop the vehicles.
Ian Black of The Guardian also reports that the news agency’s Cairo sources have described the killers as “Takfiris,” a term used to delineate Al-Qaeda and Al-Qaeda affiliated groups in the region.
With this latest incident of violence on behalf of what we are being told by the Western media are oppressed democracy protesters, it would be wise to remember the fact that these individuals have been responsible for firing on Egyptian security forces, throwing political opponents off of rooftops, and burning down Christian churches.
In addition, Muslim Brotherhood protesters, or at least Western media outlets, have been caught attempting to fake demonstrations, violent putdowns, and other elements of victimization for propaganda purposes.
Unfortunately, the narrative taking shape inside Egypt is now beginning to closely resemble the early stages of the Syrian crisis almost three years ago.
