Roughly a year after revelations the Muslim Brotherhood had tortured Christian demonstrators at a Cairo mosque, more Egyptians are coming forward, detailing abuse they endured during Mohammed Morsi’s presidency.
The torture allegations come as no surprise to Egyptians demonstrators brutally beaten by pro-Morsi Islamists.
CBN News contributor Raymond Ibrahim said many Islamists believe it’s okay to torture an adversary.
“It all comes down to what is your intention?” Ibrahim said. “Is your intention to empower Islam and if it is, then you are exonerated…the idea of actually using terror once again via torture in order to support the Islamist agenda has been going on for a very long time.”
Egypt’s El Nadeem Center for Rehabilitation of victims of violence recorded 359 torture cases during President Mohammed Morsi’s one year in office. That compares to 357 during the last 10 years of Hosni Mubarak’s rule.
