Islamist Cleric Sentenced to 14 Years in Egypt After Burning Bible, Calling Christian Women Prostitutes

“An Islamic preacher known for his hate speeches against Coptic Christians was sentenced to 11 years in prison for tearing up and burning a Bible outside the U.S. Embassy during a protest against an anti-Islam film last year.

An Egyptian court in Cairo sentenced Ahmed Abdullah on Sunday for insulting religion and burning a Bible. He was also fined 3,000 Egyptian pounds, or $430.

Abdullah’s son was sentenced to eight years in prison and fined 2,000 Egyptian pounds, or $286 for his role in the burning.

Abdullah publicly burned a copy of the Bible as part of a protest against the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” on Sept. 11, 2012. The film was produced in the United States by an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian, and set off anti-American protests across the Muslim world. Abdullah also announced that he planned to send his grandson to urinate on the Bible.”

    When will similar action be taken in the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian Authority area for similar statements against the Jews? It’s about time action was taken in Egypt.

    There is a nasty element in the ultra-Orthodox community. Jews who believe Jesus (Yeshua) is the Messiah are particularly targeted. They now total 15,000 in Israel. Before 1967 there were very few Messianic believers.
    The Israeli media and academia have been more favourable to this section
    of the community. It is now common for university professors to state that Jesus was a Torah-keeping rabbi.
