11

Egyptian Interior Ministry officials successfully carried out an anti-terrorist operation in Cairo. They eliminated the radicals preparing a series of terrorist attacks during Christian holiday events.


This was reported yesterday at the Ministry of the Interior of Egypt.

The members of the terrorist cell were secretly in an apartment in one of the densely populated areas of the Egyptian capital. The security forces had to storm it, as a result of which it was possible to eliminate seven militants. Unfortunately, during the special operation, Colonel of the National Security of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Egypt Mohammed al-Khufi was killed. Another representative of the power department was injured.


Interior Ministry officials found that the terrorists professed takfirism. They were preparing terrorist acts during the upcoming Christian holiday events. In this country, April 19, the Coptic Christians, like the Orthodox in Russia, celebrate Easter.

As a result of the search in the apartment, six assault rifles and ammunition were found after the assault.

Last night, local media reported a shootout in Cairo. In the metropolitan area of ​​Amiriya, an armed clash between the police and terrorists in the apartment of a multi-storey building lasted several hours.

    Egypt is confidently on the path to stabilizing its statehood, despite attempts at destabilization, both externally and internally.

      Condolences to the Egyptian security forces, but apparently the undermining of stability and power continues.

    The warrior and the faithful Muslim perished so that the blood of Christians would not be shed on Easter. On this night of the miraculous resurrection of Jesus, I pray for his soul. Peace be upon him, eternal memory and the kingdom of heaven is to the soul of a soldier.

      terrorists professed takfirism

      Today, one of the most dangerous varieties of religious extremism is takfirism.
      Despite classifying themselves as Salafists, takfirits differ from them and other orthodox Muslims in their permission to impose takfir, although this is allowed only after certain conditions are met and is the prerogative of Muslim ulama and jurists.
      Takfir is the accusation of kufr (unbelief) of all those who do not share their ideas. The main object of takfir are primarily those Muslims who do not agree with their interpretation of Islam. It is important to emphasize here that non-Muslims are not considered to be the main objects of takfir, because they, such as Jews and Christians, are assigned to the “infidels” because of their religious affiliation.
      The goal of takfirism is Muslims practicing traditional Islam. Takfirites proclaim as infidels - infidels of all Muslims who do not follow the interpretation of Islam that they recognize as the only correct one. And in this case, Muslims who are accused of unbelief - kufr, are given the status of apostates (in Arabic - apostate, that is, those who have departed from Islam).
      In the modern era, takfirism arose as the practice of ultra-radical branching from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood party (Ikhvanul-muslimun), which was called at-Takfir al-hijra (“Accusing unbelief and leaving to save one’s faith”), the founder of which made the Egyptian theologian Mustafa Shukri, absorbing the idea of ​​forcible seizure of power by the radical ideologist Saeed Qutb, who was executed in 1966.

        It’s more likely not the very course of takfirism, you can believe or not believe in Islamic values, but weapons are put into the hands of such dissenters are not simple ulama. Terrorism attacks are prepared and financed

    “International terrorism is considered a natural consequence of the division of the world into rich and poor, an extreme form of protest of the poor and destitute South against a well-fed and prosperous North. And as long as such a gap exists, terrorism will exist.

    One billion are whites living in democratic and prosperous countries. This is the "golden billion." The remaining five billion is the third world, experiencing hatred and envy of white civilization. The confrontation between the rich North and the poor South became fierce.
    But here's the curious thing. India, China, engaged in the creation of their own well-being, the countries of Southeast Asia or, on the contrary, the poor states of tropical Africa, have nothing to do with this terrorism.

    International terrorism feeds only one third of its world - Islamic countries, the Middle East, where many really live in dire poverty. However, the question still needs to be asked who is to blame. Middle Eastern states are a storehouse of oil. These countries are making billions of dollars without any effort. But what are they spending their money on? Islamic rulers waste billions on their own pleasures, on weapons and wars. "
