Egypt Reserves The Right To Respond To Libya killings

February 16, 2015


President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said in a televised address that “Egypt reserves the right to respond in the method and timing it deems suitable for retribution from these killers,” after Libya beheadings’ video.

Sisi’s statement comes in response to the video which surfaced late Sunday showing the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Copts who were abducted in Libya weeks ago.

Shortly after the video, Sisi called for an urgent meeting of the National Defence Council. He declared a week of mourning over the victims and expressed condolences to their families.

The 21 Coptics

The video was titled “a message signed with blood to the nation of the cross.”

The 21 Coptic Egyptians were abducted in the Libyan city of Sirte on two separate occasions in December and January, only one week apart.

The spokesman of Egypt’s Orthodox Church, Boulos Halim described the video as “painful” and confirmed the identities of the abductees.

In the video, the speaker delivers a message after which the abductees, who were kneeling, were forced to lie down and had their throats slit simultaneously.

After the beheadings, the speaker says the killings were “were in revenge for Camilia and her sisters.”

Camilia Shehata is an Egyptian woman who was at the centre of controversy back in 2010 after her disappearance following news that she converted from Christianity to Islam. A group of Egypt’s conservative Muslims believe that she was eventually forced back into Christianity.

The video footage is consistent with images that had been released on social media on Thursday, showing the kidnapped Egyptians in orange jumpsuits with the sea in the backdrop.

    To all those who work for the media. In hope to find the courage to change ……

    As all real journalists must know the ties and connection between ISIS and sen. John Mc Cain they should pull the cover off this masquerade. They know of the picture taken by sen. Mc Cain with Al Baghdadi, the chief of ISIS. This picture was even denunciated by sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky during his interview on September 16 2014. By feeding into the propaganda of ISIS you are also selling out the future of your children and that of all the next generations. The Beast is no abstract figure or the final coming of past prophecies. His name: George H. Bush, father of George W. Bush. First and only CIA director to also become US president. The coup d’état in the US silently happened on November 22 1963 with the JFK assassination. Since then the Beast worked by proxy starting with president Lynden Johnson who was also an oil man from Texas and friend of George H. Bush. Force and Violence will never succeed against the Beast that thrives on terror, wars and protests and is the ultimate master of Deception. Instead do all you can to make people aware of this selling out from the media and switch sides if you are part of the Beast entourage. The “yes, sir” of Humanity have sold their souls and betrayed the rest of the people for a bunch of silver. But why continuing to play the Monopoly game after someone has already stolen all the money?

    Watch how Jeb Bush gets elected.
