Gawk Like An Egyptian

Meet Egyptian actress Rania Youssef.

Rania is undeniably hot, and her hotness started a major fire in her shit-hole Islamic country. You see, Rania had the temerity to show her legs in public, and will not be put on trial for “public obscenity. The charge could earn her five years in prison.

An Egyptian actress is facing trial next month charged with public obscenity after she attended the closing ceremony of a film festival in Cairo wearing a see-through embroidered gauze dress that revealed the entirety of her legs.

Rania Youssef’s trial follows a complaint to the chief prosecutor by a group of lawyers against the actress.

The Arab country of 100 million people has retained vestiges of secularism despite decades of growing religious conservatism, but Youssef’s case serves as a reminder that Islamic fundamentalism still pervades society five years after an Islamist president was ousted by the military.

I always wonder why archaeologists imagine what life must have been like in the Middle Ages. If they were truly curious, they would spend all their time in countries run by Islamists.

Sunday Services

In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by my audience, you haven’t, the World Cup is underway in Russia. We here at the Earp Ranch are watching with great interest. Kyle is cheering for Brazil, Erik for Argentina, and the rest of us for Germany. I figured it’s appropriate to feature some of the players competing in the tournament.

Birkir Bjarnason (above) is a midfielder from Iceland, who also plays for Aston Villa in England. Britain’s Daily Mail deemed him “the world’s hottest Viking.”

Next up is Ramadan Sobhi of Egypt. When the midfielder isn’t playing for his national team, he plays for Huddersfield Town in England’s Premier League. As you can see, Ramadan takes very good care of himself.

Finally, we have Swiss goaltender Yann Sommer. Yann is representing a very good Swiss team in Russia, and also plays for Borussia Mönchengladbach in the German Bundesliga.

The services have ended. You may now go in peace.

The Enemy Of My Enemy…

Don’t look now, but there’s a very interesting alliance building in the Middle East, and their common enemy is the ISIS animals.

The New York Times is reporting that there is a “secret alliance” between Egypt and Israel to combat ISIS along the Sinai border between the two countries.

The report claims that Israel has flown more than 100 missions in the last two years, striking targets in the terrorists’ stronghold in Egypt with the full knowledge and cooperation of Cairo’s government.

Egypt appeared unable to stop them, so Israel, alarmed at the threat just over the border, took action. For more than two years, unmarked Israeli drones, helicopters and jets have carried out a covert air campaign, conducting more than 100 airstrikes inside Egypt, frequently more than once a week — and all with the approval of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

The remarkable cooperation marks a new stage in the evolution of their singularly fraught relationship. Once enemies in three wars, then antagonists in an uneasy peace, Egypt and Israel are now secret allies in a covert war against a common foe.

To quote the dumbest vice-president in American history: “This is a big f**king deal.” It is also a tiny ray of hope, because if Egypt and Israel can get along, it’s only a matter of time before other Arab nations join the team.

Walk Like An Egyptian

An American citizen who was imprisoned in Egypt for three years has been released after pressure was applied by the Trump administration.

An Egyptian American charity worker who was imprisoned in Cairo for three years and became the global face of Egypt’s brutal crackdown on civil society returned home to the United States after the Trump administration quietly negotiated her release.

President Trump and his aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure the freedom of Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers. Trump dispatched a U.S. government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington.

The Washington Post, ever the liberal stalwart, added, “The Obama administration unsuccessfully pressed Sissi’s government for their release..” Uh huh. I’m sure Obama fought tooth and nail to get our citizens released. /sarcasm

The couple and their co-workers had been incarcerated since May 1, 2014, on child abuse and trafficking charges that were widely dismissed by human rights workers and U.S. officials as false. Virtually no evidence was ever presented against them, and for nearly three years they were held as hearings were inexplicably postponed and trial dates canceled. Human rights groups alleged that they were abused in detention. (H/T – Kevin)

Look, I don’t agree with everything President Trump does, but the effort he has put forth so far has been nothing less than incredible. This is reminiscent of the transition period between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. America is strong again, and both our allies and enemies know it.

ISIS Savages Murder Nearly 50 Chuchgoers

Two members of the Religion of Peace targeted Christian churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday, killing nearly fifty parishioners and injuring over one hundred.

This is the moment an ISIS suicide bomber detonated outside an Egyptian church after being turned away by three hero policemen in the second of two attacks that killed more than 45 Christians and wounded 100.

Scores of peaceful citizens attending Palm Sunday mass. These ISIS animals need to be put down.

CCTV shows the fanatic, dressed in a blue pullover, approaching the gate at St Mark’s in Alexandria but being told to go through the metal detector first by officers. He then passes a female police officer talking to another woman, and enters a metal detector before an explosion engulfs the area.

The dead officers were named as Ahmed Ibrahim, Brigadier General Nagwa El-Haggar and Emad El-Rakiby.

These heroes saved countless lives by preventing that animal from entering the structure.

The atrocity, which followed another attack in Tanta, was thought to have been aimed at Pope Tawadros II, leader of the ancient Coptic church, who was worshiping in St Mark’s at the time but escaped unharmed.

Thank God for that. I would thank Him again if he enables us to wipe these goat-banging cowards of the face of the Earth.
