This will cause those associated with this evil to be publically shamed and cause association with such things to be a source of shame for those involved, thus inhibiting other pin heads from joining up.

    Egyptian women have to realize that the muslim broterhoods secret war upon them as equals in Egyptian society, is now an open war.
