My post was FA'd yesterday with the title 'More on the Religion of Peace'. I could not find the link about the Egyption torture so I'll post a different one from the Christian Science Monitor.

Complaints arrive daily: An 18-year-old man was beaten in a police station and thrown off a third floor balcony. Another man was punched and flogged. Earlier, a family was dragged to the police station, where the father was beaten and the women were threatened with rape.

These and hundreds more allegations have been logged into Egypt’s “torture diary,” a chronicle of claimed transgressions compiled by the Nadeem Center for Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence, an independent victims advocacy group.

Drawing on news reports, a hot line and attorneys for those who say they were on the receiving end of state-sponsored violence, the center notes alleged incidents each day, then releases a full report at the end of each month



I'll say it again, this really pisses me off. Not as much as the Crusades and Inquisition does of course.... because male white Christian oppression is always far worse than anything done by any other culture. Just want to make that clear so the PA and MF sensors know I understand the real problem here. <g>
