Massacre of the Muslim Ummah

I am angry. That’s a mild word though, for what i’m feeling.

Is the world blind? Are the people standing for “the religion of humanity” dead now? Why don’t you see the massacre of Egypt? And before this, the massacre of Burma??  Why don’t I see an uproar  against this?! Are the Muslims dead too? Or asleep? WAKE UP!! Wake up to the dead, mangled and bloody bodies of your Egyptian brotherhood. Whether they’re 18, or 94, or 2200. They’re our blood, our mud!  Why even think about the figure?…

And what is the massacre for? Government forces were using machine guns, snipers, AK-47 and M-16 rifles and were firing into the crowd. According to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, at least 2,200 people were killed and 10,000 others injured in the crackdown by the Egyptian security forces on protest sit-ins held by Morsi supporters in Cairo.

Why? Because they wanted their president back. They wanted the Muslim regime back. And they didn’t resort to violence, not really, no. In fact, according to reports, they were shouting on speakers to the military, “don’t shoot at us, we are your brothers.”, with nothing but sticks in their hands. They don’t even have an army.

“It’s impossible to count all the injured. There are millions of them. Some are dropping dead at the hospital entrance,” said el-Morsi, who is close to the former president, describing the operation carried about by Egyptian military police against the pro-Morsi encampments on Wednesday morning.

”In 12 days of fighting in Gaza, there were less dead than in six hours here.“

”It’s a genocide,“ said Dr Yehia Makkayah, a medic at the Rabaa hospital. ”They want us to disappear from the country. I could never imagine that Egyptians would shoot Egyptians using these weapons.“

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said international passivity had paved the way for the military-backed Egyptian government’s crackdown, which included violence in areas beyond the capital that killed at least 14 protesters.

Me?…. I’m baffled at the fact that this is Muslims killing Muslims. How could the interim government do this? How could the army carry out their orders? Do they have no hearts? Or have their hearts turned to stone, as Allah says in the Quran:

But their hearts were hardened and the devil made all that they used to do seem fair unto them!” (6:43)

“Then woe unto those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of God. Such are in plain error.” (39:22)

Only such humans could do something so terrible. Even some of the soldiers said that they were shooting for no reason. Just shooting into the crowds of men, women, and children. Several articles described scenes that made  me cry… The tragedy is unfathomable. If you see the images, which I didn’t have the heart to put up here, you might feel their pain too. But the brothers? Several of them were found smiling… They were satisfied, not because they were fighting and dying, but because they were fighting and dying for Allah. They are martyrs. Martyrs deserve to be remembered proudly. Martyrs are lucky.

Fear not, my Muslim brothers and sisters. The sun will rise again. We have Allah with us. And He knows best. Strengthen your faith by this turmoil, so that you can do your part. Do whatever you can do for them, or with them. And pray for the Muslim Brotherhood. Prayers are magic.

God bless the Muslim Ummah.

  1. My heart too bleeds for the victims.

    Like you I am shocked.

    Not at the leaders, it is what I have come to expect from leaders everywhere. But that they were able to find enough soldiers to carry out this barbaric act.

    How could they have pointed their guns at unarmed civilians and not turned them on those who gave the orders to shoot?

    They are probably mostly kids. Frightened young men barely out of their teens. I suspect many of them will be so haunted by what they have done they will soon be using their weapons on themselves.

    • Moniba is right.
      Armies are heartless, but soldiers are human.

      You can convince them to kill people if you can make them think the enemy is not human.
      But when the ‘enemy’ are your people, your neighbours …

      This will turn some of the soldiers into monsters – they will no longer be human.
      But most of them will stay human and it will destroy them just as surely as they destroyed their countrymen.

      Pray for them all, killers and the dead alike.

  2. tragedy everywhere, and those who should care and act never do unless it serves them to personally profit somehow. i’ve been reading several book about the war in bosnia and the ethnic cleansing of Muslims by the fucking serbs. as outrageous as that is by itself, i am very angry at my own country for its failure to intervene when it should. i am angry that we only intervene quickly when “national interests” (translation: abundance of natural resources we depend on, i.e. oil!!) are at stake. what a pity the Muslims in bosnia did not possess a great wealth of natural resources. surely the hypocrasy of our nation would have come immediately to their rescue.

    also, saw an excellent movie last night “the reluctant fundamentalist”. i had read the book several years ago, but this is one of those rare movies that is equal to or better than the book. i’d be interested for you to watch the movie and tell me what you think. peace to you, for we must make it where others will not.
