Egyptian court orders death sentences over anti-Islam film

By Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, for CNN

Cairo (CNN) - Seven Coptic Egyptians living abroad were sentenced to death Wednesday by a court in Cairo for their connection to an inflammatory anti-Islam film, the prosecutor's office said.

The suspects are accused of being involved with the production of the film in California, said Adel Al Saeed, official spokesman for the prosecutor's office.

Since the Egyptian citizens were tried in absentia, the sentence would be applied only if they returned to Egypt.

    I am sure glad that Islam is the "Religion of Peace".
    Wow, imagine if it were the religion of "I Kill YOU!!!!"

    Things would be SO much worse....

    Unless someone places REWARDS or bounties on the EGYPTIAN COURT PROSECUTORS to bring them to international justice for promoting, instigating and inciting crimes nothing is going to change. Islam has to be treated with 'AN-EYE-FOR-AN -EYE" policy.

    EvolvedDNA: While I like your comment about lionylamb, I think he/she MUST be a politician! OR like some of the other comments, Professors in miscommunication & confusion. At any rate, arguing or commenting on religion is always a tough subject! All of us have different thoughts, interpretations, on religious books, stories, etc.. For me, personally, it come down to two words. FAITH & BELEIF. No matter your religion, or for atheists, these two words define your beleifs, and resulting comments. ALL religious books, the bible, the Quran, etc., have been writien by HUMANS! Stories, events, miracles, re written through time. WHO knows how many times these books have been changed, embellished, facts or events changed based on the interpretation of the person re writting them? I am not an expert, but, is there ANY religion that claims that their religious book, is a one and only, true original?

    If you want to know the problem, just listen to some of the vicious, insensitive, and out right ignorant comments made by people. When people say they have read any holy book or book of religious knowledge cover to cover, yet they are against religion persay, then you are already coming from a perspective of bias against what you are reading. I don't think any of these philoshies can be understood without actually studing them.

    Islam is such a disease. Every day the stream of stories is constantly reinforcing it, no matter where you get it from. "Islamophobia" is a political scare word invented to try to brand anti-Islam people/ideas as ignorant or somehow without merit. It exists because no good counter-arguments do.

    Shame about Egypt. One can only be hopeful in a sort of empty way that the revolutionary spirit over there may improve the country/countries instead of making it worse, but it just looks grim, and then the grim gets grimmer.

      Yes, Islam is a disease. It's a disease we're being forced to allow into the US, Canada, and Europe. It's a disease that calls for beheadings of women, for the wholesale slaughter of "infidels." It's a disease that calls for it to be the ONLY law. It's a disease that allows for r–a–p–e of women and children, and then murdering the women and children after.

      I've read both the Bible and the Quran cover to cover and based on that at least I'd say there's not much to choose between them. The Quran's stronger on equality, the Bible on tolerance. I found the Quran a bit repetative in the Believe-or-Burn area, but all this is irrelevant...it's how they are used in the modern world, and, at this point in time, those in Islamic areas take their religion far more seriously and literally. This is a problem both because these religons (both) are outdated and because the Quran is very weak on tolerating the views of others. The equality issues in the Bible actually haven't held back Christian countrie in recent years as it happens (they progressed despite the Biblical issues) while Islamic countries have been much slower. So it depends what you mean by "as bad". Inherently they both have some good and bad and probably both contributed in their day. Currently, Islam is causing its people bigger problems.

    • Big Shiz

      I agree with some of what you seid Sara. But I would say the problems in the Muslim world are the same as the Christian world. Extreme rightwing polarisation. Many Christians still think if you don't believe in there god will go to hell,just like Muslims or Jews. Many christians enjoy economic security and political security Muslims dont. This is because of culture not religion. As the Arab world frees it's self we can say we are with you as brothers and sisters of humanity. If not we open void for the forces of fear and hate to move in.

      Atheists believe in self-anhilation after death: There is nothing after this life.
      Atheists believe that there are no gods, goddess or higher powers.
      Atheists believe that everyone should believe the same way they do.
      Atheists have groups of people that actively engage in converting people to their way of believing.
      Atheism is a religion, just like any other religion. Atheism is as extreme as christian fundamentalism.
      If you'd like to be your own person, try being Agnostic. You can do as you please, believe as you please and be a good person without having to believe in what other people demand of you.

      @ Wasp...thank you for bearing your testimony and your belief system. Sounds like a religion to me. You're still trying to get others to believe the same way as you do, so there's conversion. You're trying to prove that nothing exists as much as religious people try to prove that something exists. You pick at people that don't believe the way that you do as much as religious people judge people that don't believe as they do...

      @Damocles: I am sorry, but your post makes claims of certainty that will require supporting verifiable evidence. Without verifiable evidencal support, your claims are an argument from as-sumption. Of course, I am also making an as-sumption that your post was intended to be a statement of fact. Perhaps you were only stating your opinion of what you believe to be fact because you have no verifiable evidence to support your claims. If that is the case, you would be making an argument from ignorance.

      I hope you understand the difference between a statement of fact and a statement of opinion. As the old saying goes... "You have the right to your own opinion. You do not have a right to your own facts."

    • ME II

      Atheism is often viewed as single negative statement, not a system of beliefs. I.e. a lack of belief in deities and/or the supernatural.
      As such, the beliefs of Atheists depend on the individuals themselves and is not prescribed by a single belief system. Many are humanist but consider also that many Buddhist's would consider themselves atheist in that they don't believe in god(s).

    • She-person

      I believe there is no god, higher power, or afterlife, and that everything can be solved with science. (which it totally can, but im only one person who calls themselves an atheist.
      like christians, muslims, jews, and just about every other group out there, it has its fair share of crazy people.
      but there really isn't too much of a definition used for atheist.
      i guess the only thing that is constant with atheists is the belief that there is no god.
      thats really it.
      but that doesn't mean we dont respect other religions. you can be your own person, no matter that you believe, btw.

      Superman.. Atheists simply do not believe in gods or higher powers.. how is that a religion? I have no idea what other atheists think about, nor is it important. to the disbelief of gods A Christian, Jew , catholic, Muslim have not just believe in the same god as the rest of the group, but other group beliefs.. abortion, gay marriage and a myriad of other common ideas in order to belong and stay in that group....that's a religion.

      November 29, 2012 at 10:40 pm |
    • Saraswati

      @EvolvedDNA, It depends on which definition of rational you are using. If you stick strictly to one defining it as in accordance logic, anything that doesn't contradict itself is rational, regardless of specific premises. Even that is hard to achieve. If you do, however, except scientific method as a premise then you are bound to apply logic to the findings of science in conjunction with your religious principles. That's where it gets tricky, though not impossible, to be rational.

      That's the problem, those type of movies have already been made over the last 3-4 decades. But you didn't see us Christians rising up to kill people over them. You didn't see or hear our President talking in front of the UN about them. Or hearing of him telling families of victims he'll punish those who made those films. Or heaing him tell people that they should be tolerant and sensitive to Christians. And you didn't see any fabricated charge to imprison the filmmakers in the US, and execute those who participated in other countries. Instead they've mostly become wildly famous and successful, serving and worshiping the Devil.

    The Universally-Formed Cosmos of the Triune Manifestation

    We all live amid two chasms of cosmological orders. We have the inner-cosmos and the outer-cosmos. The inner-cosmos is atomically made and is the universal construct of the outer-cosmos. One could not have an outer without an inner. Both are synonymously of the same natures. It stands to reason the inner-cosmos was made first and the outer-cosmos came into being only after the passive finalization of the inner-cosmos was made near complete. The inner-cosmos is transcendent and fixed while the outer-cosmos is ascendant and malleable in their dualities natures.

    The third cosmos is of life itself made from the inner-cosmos living upon the terrestrial faces of the celestial outer-cosmos. This third cosmos is the celled cosmos or the cellular cosmologic orders of all life forms made anywhere cellular life can gain a foothold to evolve and gain in the abundant natures toward the evolution of its structures ever evolving. Without the two main Cosmos coming into existence; living cellular cosmologies could not exist.

    The trinity or threefold nature of chasm cosmologies is one of the greatest and grandest gestures ever to have been formulated! To say God had nothing to do with such a feat of cosmologic inter-dependencies seems an infallible congruency inconsistent for one to say or think otherwise. To say the nature of God is to keep inflating the physical elements of the outer cosmos while deflating the essence needs for the inner-cosmos leaves one to wonder about the third cosmological construct’s real nature for having been created. Why then is there cellular cosmologies and when did such life become established?

    Only for our sister and brother Muslims:

    From the studies of Armstrong, Rushdie, Hirsi Ali, Richardson and Bayhaqi----–

    The Five Steps To Deprogram 1400 Years of Islamic Myths:

    ( –The Steps take less than two minutes to finish- simply amazing, two minutes to bring peace and rationality to over one billion lost souls- Priceless!!!)

    Are you ready?

    Using "The 77 Branches of Islamic "faith" a collection compiled by Imam Bayhaqi as a starting point. In it, he explains the essential virtues that reflect true "faith" (iman) through related Qur’anic verses and Prophetic sayings." i.e. a nice summary of the Koran and Islamic beliefs.

    The First Five of the 77 Branches:

    "1. Belief in Allah"

    aka as God, Yahweh, Zeus, Jehovah, Mother Nature, etc. should be added to your self-cleansing neurons.

    "2. To believe that everything other than Allah was non-existent. Thereafter, Allah Most High created these things and subsequently they came into existence."

    Evolution and the Big Bang or the "Gi-b G-nab" (when the universe starts to recycle) are more plausible and the "akas" for Allah should be included if you continue to be a "crea-tionist".

    "3. To believe in the existence of angels."

    A major item for neuron cleansing. Angels/de-vils are the mythical creations of ancient civilizations, e.g. Hitt-ites, to explain/define natural events, contacts with their gods, big birds, sudden winds, protectors during the dark nights, etc. No "pretty/ug-ly wingy thingies" ever visited or talked to Mohammed, Jesus, Mary or Joseph or Joe Smith. Today we would classify angels as f–airies and "tin–ker be-lls". Modern de-vils are classified as the de-mons of the de-mented.

    "4. To believe that all the heavenly books that were sent to the different prophets are true. However, apart from the Quran, all other books are not valid anymore."

    Another major item to delete. There are no books written in the spirit state of Heaven (if there is one) just as there are no angels to write/publish/distribute them. The Koran, OT, NT etc. are simply books written by humans for humans.

    Prophets were invented by ancient scribes typically to keep the un-educated masses in line. Today we call them for-tune tellers.

    Prophecies are also invali-dated by the natural/God/Allah gifts of Free Will and Future.

    "5. To believe that all the prophets are true. However, we are commanded to follow the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings
    be upon him) alone."

    Mohammed spent thirty days "fasting" (the Ramadan legend) in a hot cave before his first contact with Allah aka God etc. via a "pretty wingy thingy". Common sense demands a neuron deletion of #5. #5 is also the major source of Islamic vi-olence i.e. turning Mohammed's "fast, hunger-driven" hallu-cinations into horrible reality for unbelievers.

    Walk these Five Steps and we guarantee a complete recovery from your Islamic ways!!!!

    Unfortunately, there are not many Muslim commentators/readers on this blog so the "two-minute" cure is not getting to those who need it. If you have a Muslim friend, send him a copy and help save the world.

    Analogous steps are available at your request for deprogramming the myths of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Paganism..

      قضى محمد ثلاثين يوما "الصيام" (أسطورة رمضان) في كهف الساخن قبل لقاءه الأول مع الله ويعرف أيضا باسم الله وما إلى ذلك من خلال "افسح المجال ل ثينغي جميلة". الحس السليم يتطلب حذف الخلايا العصبية من رقم 5. # 5 هو أيضا المصدر الرئيسي للالاسلامي VI-olence أي تحول محمد "سريع والجوع يحركها" hallu-cinations إلى واقع فظيع لغير المؤمنين.

      للأسف، لا توجد العديد من المعلقين مسلم / القراء على هذا بلوق لذلك "لمدة دقيقتين" هو عدم الحصول على علاج لأولئك الذين في حاجة إليها. إذا كان لديك صديق مسلم، وإرسال نسخة منه وتساعد في إنقاذ العالم.

      Prayer does not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.

      An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.

      The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs.

      I'm sorry, "Atheism is not healthy for children and other living things", but your assertions regarding atheism and prayer are unfounded. Using my Idiomatic Expression Equivalency module (IEE), the expression that best matches the degree to which your assertions may represent truths is: "TOTAL FAIL".

      I see that you repeat these unfounded statements with high frequency. Perhaps the following book can help you:

    The history of multifaceted cosmological expansionism within celestial symmetries comes from the terrestrial complacencies of planetary regularities and solarized objectivism wherever the abundance of inner cosmologies coalesces to form stars, planets and moons among many other fragmented structures within the spatial confines of a universally formed Cosmos.

    Lives, upon the celestial shorelines of the terrestrially compliant are biologic cellular cosmological constants, and were ever formed and are continually forming seemingly forever as well placed living conglomerations in naturalisms arcades of wondrous cavalcades marching in steps of melancholy tributes to God upon the most high Cosmos of universalism’s formidable formation on high.
