EGPYT: ‘ Revolutionary Punishment Group linked to Muslim Brotherhood Execute Man due to his Alleged links to Security Forces ‘

#AceNewsReport – CAIRO:July.19: A group that proclaims itself as the Revolutionary Punishment announced on affiliated Twitter accounts it “executed” a man from Sharkia governorate due to his alleged cooperation with security bodies.

@EricTrager18Screenshot from 2015-07-19 15:37:23

The statement said that Ateya el-Harouny filed around 40 police reports against Muslim Brotherhood activists and supporters, whom the statement referred to by “revolutionaries.”

The group said they shot Harouny July 7, leaving him badly injured and leading to his death July 14.

Giza Popular Resistance, one of several armed groups that appeared a few months after the 2013 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, previously posted pictures of an injured man, claiming they shot him for reporting “revolutionaries.”

Meanwhile in North Sinai, the most dangerous militant group in the country has repeatedly beheaded Bedouins for their alleged cooperation with the military.

On May 5, Four alleged members of the Revolutionary Punishment were arrested; three Al-Azhar University students were injured manufacturing a bomb and they led to their “funder,” a security source told Youm7.

Preliminary investigations said that the four men belong to Revolutionary Punishment; they mainly claim responsibility for explosive devices that have killed dozens of policemen, as well as civilians.

A police report said the defendants admitted to placing a bomb under an officer’s car in Nasr City, bombing two cars in March in the embassy district, also in Nasr City, and other operations.

In a March statement, the Ministry of Interior claimed the Muslim Brotherhood creates “terrorist cells” and gives them names, such as the Revolutionary Punishment and the Popular Resistance, to claim responsibility for attacks, repelling accusation of terrorism against the Brotherhood itself.

CAIRO: ‘ Islamic State Claim responsibility for Karnak Temple Suicide Bomb Attack ‘

#AceNewsReport#Breaking Post Update:CAIRO:June.10: The Islamic State (ISIL) militant group on Wednesday claimed responsibility for a suicide attack at the Temple of Karnak in the historic Egyptian city of Luxor, CoptsToday news website reported.

Islamic State Claim Responsibility for Karnak Attack '
Islamic State Claim Responsibility for Karnak Attack ‘

The website cited a Twitter post believed to belong to Islamic State senior member Said Abu Obeida, who states the assault on the Karnak temple was organized by ISIL militants.

The temple is one of Egypt’s most famous historic sites and second in popularity only to the Giza pyramids. It attracts millions of tourists every year.

Egyptian police said earlier in the day that three suicide bombers attempted to fight their way past the checkpoint at the entrance to the ancient shrine after security officers attempted to screen them.

One of the attackers was shot dead and another wounded, while a third detonated a bomb killing himself and injuring four bystanders. Security forces are checking if the trio had other accomplices, Egyptian media said.

Jihadist militants have killed hundreds of security employees and servicemen in Egypt since the 2013 coup deposed the country’s President Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist organization.

A Cairo criminal court sentenced Mohamed Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide, and 13 other leading members of the group to death on Monday for inciting murder in the now infamous case known in the media as “Rabaa control room.”

The 14 convicted include the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mahmoud Ghozlan, Saad El-Hossainy, Salah Soltan and Fathy Shehab.

The 14 members of the Brotherhood, which was declared a “terrorist organisation” in 2013, were found guilty of “plotting attacks aimed at sowing chaos” across the country, state news agency MENA reported.

Badie and the 13 other defendants were accused of setting up a control room to direct the movements of Brotherhood supporters across the country. Defense lawyer Ahmad Helmi, who called the verdicts “farcical” in an interview with reporters [BBC report], said the decision was handed down even though the defense had not finished its closing arguments for five of the defendants.

The court referred the case to Egypt’s Grand Mufti, the country’s senior Sunni authority, which is the first step in ratifying the sentences.

Radical Islam ‘Trojan Horse plot’ threatens the UK and the West


I don’t think Islam is capable of this due it’s radical nature

Islam as a religion is a good religion, I have Muslim friends, life friends through work (In my 20’s) and football. They are friends for life, and they are Muslim. I have Catholic, Protestants, Hinduism and friends from many religions, having never left the Island I live on, the UK, up here in Scotland, the World is a huge place and I love knowing people with different customs and ways

Learning to respect each other is essential. It was in the media this morning that since the 1990’s RADICAL ISLAM has been infiltrating schools. Below is the story and the letters to go with it. This is just breaking today and will turn into a REAL story soon. I think this with the UKIP surge in the UK has made many people turn away from the two party we have had since WWII and I do believe this, UKIP and the Radical Islam threat will make sure on September 18th Scotland (Where I am) will vote to leave the Union. All the people in Scotland get to vote a simple Yes or No. With this and UPIK many in the last week have turned from no voters to yes voters. Nobody is Scotland want’s one more Torie Government (Thatcherism) We want a Government we vote for and to be a free nation and a rich nation. The thought of UKIP and the Radical Islam issue scares me for my kids future, and I know many are now saying the same. UKIP want all foreign nationals out of the UK, Radicals for sure but not Radicals also. They are not far away from the principles of the British National Party who are hates my the vast majority for being racists. This is a story the people of the USA can share as it is well known Obama has surrounded himself with known Muslim Brotherhood Members http://shaunynews.com/2014/05/08/obama-and-the-muslim-connection-disturbing-photo-of-obama-depicted-as-a-king/ So here we are with the USA and UK being infiltrated by Radical Islam, or am I reading the story wrong? This is all over our Media today http://news.sky.com/story/1274139/muslim-school-plot-fears-were-raised-in-1994


Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood Friends. Go research, you will see rather quickly

Fears that hardline Muslim governors have been infiltrating Birmingham schools go back at least two decades, and were raised with the government in 1994. Sky News has learned that senior leaders at three schools in Birmingham were so concerned about the influence of Muslim extremists in the 1990s they took their fears to the top. In a letter to education ministers, copied to then Prime Minister John Major, the heads said extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir was gaining an alarming influence over schools in the city. Former chair of governors at Golden Hillock School, John Ray, met with then education minister Emily Blatch in Westminster. He says that had the government acted then, the current trend – in which conservative Muslims have been able to dominate school leadership – could have been averted. “(The Trojan Horse plot) reveals something, something that is true,” said Mr Ray. “It reveals a mess that the city council has not been able to check – the development of this whole infiltration of this ceding in of governors of one particular ideology. They are not people who have the welfare of these children at heart.”


A letter sent to government ministers in 1994


An official house of Commons return letter (I am told)


The story broke this morning, but we all seen it coming or knew it was an issue, now our Media is reporting it

This for me is a very real and active threat to the Western World, Radical Islam has forced it’s way into power in the USA and is slowly creeping into English politics and life style’s. Many parts of England have areas where it is like “Little Pakistan” where the majority are Muslim. This poster appeared last week, I never blogged about it at the time, but I kept it knowing this was on the cards, here it is


This is what is happening in England

This has caused English people, off their own backs to create the “English Defence League” E.D.L and counter any demonstrations done by Muslims. When I see Muslims with banners saying “Behead anyone against Islam” It does make me PRAY for a free Scotland. We don’t have Radical Islam issues up here in Scotland, many think the UK is one country, it is not it is a Union and a Union we in Scotland want to leave for many reasons.

When I seen the UKIP surge here where I blogged ithttps://acenewsservices.com/2014/05/27/dangerous-uk-ukip-surge-might-make-an-independent-scotland-a-reality/ this was my views at the time. France did similar they voted in far right politicians in the European Elections. I think the people of England mainly spoke loud and clear about the Islamic Muslim threat with the voting, had this been a general election UKIP would be running the UK and they would dissolve the Scottish and Welsh parliaments

For me personally I can’t risk this for my Country, Scotland is a peaceful place and we are a welcoming people. English people are the same, they are not the issue, Westminster is. And the news today this Islamic threat has been ongoing in Schools in England since the 1990’s is proof if anyone needs it that the future of not just the UK but Europe as a whole could be seen to be unstable. We get real elections here where the people most hate can get into power, many countries like the USA have known rigged elections, George Bush got 2 terms, and we all know he cheated to beat Al Gore and Florida was the decider, and in charge that day in Florida was none other than Jeb Bush and the votes counted by people who were part of Bush’s campaign. Of course we all know this as fact now

So the danger is real, it is a Western problem and we need to meet it head on. I am not Racist, I aim to offend nobody in any article I do, be it here, Ace News or Browaha or any other place I may blog/write in the future. I just tell the story the way I see it. I am the type of person who will question life and look for the lies we are told by Government. Why this has went on so long is a mystery to me. Radical Islam is real problem for the West and I will leave some newspaper headlines from the UK today below as well as other Radical Muslim pictures from England

` Freelance Journalist Working Al-Jazeera Arrested Just Prior to Trial of her Colleagues Recommences ‘

#AceNewsServices – CAIRO – may 31 – A female freelance journalist working for the satellite news network al-Jazeera in Egypt has been arrested, the interior ministry has said.

Muslim Brotherhood has a ‘significant presence’ in Canada


Muslim brotherhood members and ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi supporters protest in July 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. The Broherhood is facing a crackdown in Egypt following Hersi ouster by the military.

TORONTO — The Muslim Brotherhood has established a “significant presence” in Canada, says a study released Tuesday that asks whether the government should follow the lead of the United Kingdom and launch an investigation into the group. Calling the Brotherhood the “antithesis” of Canadian laws and values, the study urged Ottawa to deny public support and charity status to organizations aligned with the group, which promotes political Islam as an alternative to Western-style democracy.

The report is “intended to focus public attention on the requirement to have a national level discussion on the Muslim Brotherhood and its role in Canada,” said Tom Quiggin, the former Privy Council intelligence analyst who authored the study. Mr. Quiggin, a court-recognized expert on terrorism, wrote the study without government or private funding. “Questions need to be raised about the accreditation, public funding and charity status of the organizations involved,” he said.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in the 1920s by the Egyptian cleric Hassan Al-Banna, whose writings were hostile to the West and envisioned its downfall, proposing instead a “world living under the tranquility of Islam.”

To achieve this, he called for reforms that included mandatory memorization of the Koran in schools, igniting “the spirit of Islamic jihad” in youths, censorship of music and films, and confiscation of books and newspapers. Almost a century later, the Muslim Brotherhood is a controversial revivalist movement and political party in the Middle East. It is facing a crackdown in its home base, Egypt, following the ouster of Mohamed Hersi by the military. Last month, British Prime Minister David Cameron ordered an investigation into the Brotherhood’s activities in the U.K. and alleged links to violence and extremism. In Canada, the government has not taken action directly against the Brotherhood. “We are aware that the U.K. is doing a review on the MB. We will be determining any possible next steps in short order,” Adam Hodge, the spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, told the National Post on Monday

A senior source at the Department of Foreign Affairs recently confirmed that the Canadian government gave $5.3 million to the Syrian opposition in 2012. According to the National Post, “the entire Canadian contribution was funnelled through the U.S. State Department.” Syrian opposition leader Hassan Hachimi told the National Post that the money was spent on communication equipment.

The report comes a month after Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney announced the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy — Canada (IRFAN) had been placed on Ottawa’s list of banned terrorist groups. According to the Canada Revenue Agency, IRFAN had merged with the Jerusalem Fund for Human Services, which was allegedly set up by a Muslim Brotherhood committee.

IRFAN had funnelled $15-million to groups linked to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch, auditors claimed. IRFAN was a registered charity at the time but has since had its status revoked. The RCMP is investigating. IRFAN denies knowingly funding Hamas.

Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims, declined to comment on what he called a “foreign political organization.” But he said the NCCM was not affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Writing in the Winnipeg Free Press on May 16, Mr. Gardee called an article about the Muslim Brotherhood co-authored by Mr. Quiggin a “conspiracy-laden diatribe that, in a sweeping stroke, smeared our long-standing Canadian organization as ‘terrorists’ and despicably suggested we intend to destroy Canada from within.”

Mr. Quiggin’s report lists several other Canadian organizations — some of them federally-regulated charities — that he says are aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. Key executives in some of them have left Canada to take positions with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria, he writes.

“The government of Canada may wish to pursue a wider investigation into the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood with a particular focus on its activities in Canada and the USA. Cooperation or information sharing with the proposed investigation in the United Kingdom may be useful,” the report says.

Such a probe should examine which Canadian groups with Muslim Brotherhood affiliations have charity status and access to the government, it says. The Canada Border Services Agency may also want to screen foreign nationals for membership in the Brotherhood.

It also recommends the government consider requiring those advocating the spread of Muslim Brotherhood ideology to register as lobbyists. In addition, the report says charities receiving funding from overseas should be required to publicly report the sources of their foreign donations.

But it has also been designated as a terrorist organisation by the country from which it originated – Egypt.

And now the British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered an inquiry into the Brotherhood’s alleged links to terrorism following claims from Egypt and Saudi Arabia that the movement has been using London as an organising base for its activities.

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – May 19 – An Egyptian court acquitted 169 Muslim Brotherhood supporters charged in connection with unrest that followed the overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi last year, Reuters reported.

Others charged in the case have already been released.

` Court Sentences 102 Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood to Ten Years in Prison for Violent Rioting ‘

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – May 03 – An Egyptian criminal court has sentenced 102 defendants it describes as Muslim Brotherhood supporters to 10 years in prison each on charges of violent rioting in a Cairo neighbourhood and possession of weapons.

Egypt’s state news agency said the Saturday ruling puts the defendants under police surveillance for a period of five years after the end of their prison sentences.

Two other defendants were jailed for seven years in the case for two others over charges of violence and rioting last July.

The defendants were found guilty of charges of assaulting private and public property, murdering a citizen and attempting to murder others at al-Dhaher district east of Cairo last July following Morsi’s overthrow.

The ruling is linked to demonstrations staged to protest the overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi by the military in July. Morsi’s ouster followed days of mass demonstrations demanding his resignation.

The prosecutors charged the defendants with gathering illegally with intent to inflict material and moral harm to others and public property, which led to one death.

` Egyptian Security Official Reports that Authorities have arrested Muslim Brotherhood Spokesman ‘

#AceNewsServices – CAIRO – April 27 – An Egyptian security official says authorities have arrested a spokesman for the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, who reportedly spent the past ten months on the run evading a government crackdown on the Islamist group, according to the Associated Press.

The official told the Associated Press that Mehrez was detained in the Egyptian capital on Friday.

The Muslim Brotherhood spokesman is accused of inciting murder and violence after Islamist President Mohammad Mursi was removed from power in July 2013.

Cairo designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group in late 2013 and since then authorities have been cracking down on the group from which Mursi hails.

An Al Arabiya correspondent said one woman was killed Friday during clashes between Muslim Brotherhood supporters and security forces in the province of al-Fayyoum, south-west of Cairo.

Medical sources speaking to Reuters news agency identified the woman as Reda Dahish.

` Egyptian Court Sentences 11 Alleged Supporters of Mohammed Morsi to Prison Terms 57 – 88 Years ‘

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – April 27 – The Upper Egypt court has sentenced 11 alleged supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi to prison terms ranging from 57 to 88 years, local media reported.

They were tried on charges of violating a protest law and attacking police.

Five of the convicted people were tried in absentia.

The charges were linked to demonstrations in the town of Samallout, western Egypt, triggered by the violent crackdown on pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo in August 2013.

In March, the same court issued death sentences to 529 supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood on charges of murder and inciting violence.

` Egyptian Judge Dismisses Videos in Trial of Three Al-Jazeera Journalists on Terrorism Charges '

#AceNewServices – CAIRO – April 10 – (AP) – An Egyptian judge has dismissed videos presented by the prosecution as evidence in the trial of three Al-Jazeera journalists on terrorism charges.

The Thursday hearing saw footage, allegedly filmed by the detained journalists, which included a documentary on Somalia, a Kenyan press conference and another wildlife video.

The judge dismissed the footage on the grounds it is not related to the charges, which include providing a platform to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.

The journalists, award-winning Australian correspondent Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian acting bureau chief Mohammed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed, worked for the Qatar-based broadcaster’s English language channel.

Fahmy said he does not understand the reason for the trial, shouting from behind the bars of the defendants’ cage: “this is a joke!”

The trial was adjourned to April 22.

(ALJ) – The three men are charged with spreading false news and aiding the blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who was overthrown by the army in July.

Al Jazeera strongly rejects the charges and demands for the immediate release of its staff.

` Egyptian Security forces Attack ` Student Protesters ' at University Campuses ' over Court's Ruling '

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – April 09 – (PressTV) – Egyptian security forces have attacked a large number of student protesters at university campuses across the North African country.

Riot police fired tear gas and birdshot at protesters at al-Azhar and Ain Shams universities in the capital Cairo on Wednesday.

Students had gathered on campuses there to denounce the army-backed government’s killing, detention and expulsion of hundreds of students for taking part in protests.


Meanwhile, student protesters at Zagazig and Mansoura universities burned US and Israeli flags to denounce their interference in Egypt’s internal affairs.

The crackdown came as a court in Cairo handed 17 anti-government protesters 3 to 7 years in jail for their role in street protests.

An Egyptian court issued a mass execution sentence for 529 supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in March, prompting worldwide objections by international institutions and rights groups.

Tensions are running high across most of Egypt’s universities ahead of the upcoming presidential election. Students have held several rallies against a presidential bid by former defense minister, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who overthrew Egypt’s first democratically-elected president, Mohamed Morsi, around nine months ago.

Hundreds of protesters, mostly Morsi’s supporters, have been killed or wounded during the violence that has erupted since the removal of Morsi.
