In the wake of Charlie Hebdo’s attack and the new cartoon mocking Prophet Muhammad, President Sisi has mandated Prime Minister Ibraheem Mehleb to ban any publication that derides religions or is sexually provocative. The mandate is based on a law passed in the 1930s. I do not know if this applies to the freaking INTERNET or not. A few weeks earlier, Sisi had urged the sheikhs of Azhar, which teaches the ISIS ways, to reform religious speech to pave the way for eliminating fanaticism. I think Sisi is fucking with us, he believes Islam is a religion and a constitution; he just does not want the bombs of terrorism. He does not understand that when the state allows and uses religion in politics and life soldiers of god are born, men convinced we should live according to their holy books and men, fanatics willing to wage battles against the infidels using elections and/or militancy. Sisi is another moderate Muslim, change is beyond his comprehension.
