Even if today's absurd judgment gets reversed on appeal, it and others like it are doing real damage

Well it is hard to believe that 529 men killed one police ofiicer and yes the verdict is absurd. But there is no doubt that the members of the MB are responsible for torching and looting Coptic Chruches and schools and Coptic businesses in Minya including the torching then looting of a 4th century monastery then converting to a mosque. They looted the Mallawi Museum and killed policemen and why is it that our free press is not reporting on all these crimes?

Justice would have been served by prosecuting those that were found guilty of murder and getting the MB to pay financial compensation for the crimes of their members and this would have ruined the MB where it would hurt the most and that is real money

But most menacing for the Copts and the police in Minya is this on facebook

Where the salafists are saying that the judge is a Copt and his assistant is a Copt! Remember that almost 40% of the population of Minya are Copts and the threats in this post are very clear and indeed the attacks on the Copts started as in torching two Coptic schools in Minya

The most absurd claim by a spokesman for the MB is that he was saying that there is the first time in the history of the Middle East that 529 men will be hanged. He forgot that his prophet killed 950 Jews in one day!

There is no doubt in my mind that the MB is a terrorist group and shame on our free press for not reporting their crimes
