‘We can read Arabic too!’ US embassy tells Egypt’s Brotherhood

Arham online:

US calls out Muslim Brotherhood after group officials tweet one thing in English and another in Arabic in response to ongoing anti-film demonstrations

Ahram Online, Thursday 13 Sep 2012




While Egyptian protesters battled security forces outside the US embassy on Thursday morning, another standoff was taking place — this time in cyberspace.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s official English-language Twitter account @Ikwanweb reposted a message from the group’s deputy head, Khairat El-Shater, saying he was “relieved none of @USembassycairo staff was hurt” and expressing his hope that US-Egypt relations could weather the events.

This reconciliatory tweet, however, was posted while the Brotherhood’s Arabic-language Twitter account and its official website were both praising the protests — staged against a US-made film judged defamatory towards Islam — and calling for a million man march on Friday.

One Arabic language article on the Brotherhood’s site sported the headline ‘Egyptians rise to defend the Prophet’.

  1. I so hate these disgusting, hypocritical people (muslims), and if every last one of them dropped dead today, I would not shed a single tear. Quite the contrary, I would clamp a clothespin on my nose and dance for joy………right over their filthy corpses!

    Ok, I guess i’m a bigot, lol. Naw, not me.

  2. Randy don’t wast your time hating, dislike them all you want but hate gnaws at a person and causes them to lose ;focus and clarity in almost everything.

  3. Richard, we must vent from time to time to let off a little steam lest we become a mental and emotional pressure cooker, but yes, unbridled hatred definitely can destroy one’s objectivity, one very soul. I have yet to reconcile this fact within myself.
