    What a filthy woman.. The original article had her nude photo in it, I found this one where there is no nude photo, but there is still a photo where her hair is visible - I'm copying the article here so that the brothers do not fall into fitnah. This is the "freedom" that kuffaar ultimately want for Egypt.


    Nude Blogger Riles Egyptians of All Stripes

    Published: November 17, 2011

    CAIRO — Aliaa Magda Elmahdy apparently thought she was striking a blow for sexual equality and free expression in Egypt when she posted nude photographs of herself on a blog. Instead Ms. Elmahdy set off a wave of outrage here, stoking conservative Islamist sentiments that many liberals fear will undermine their prospects in the country’s parliamentary election next week.

    It is hard to overstate the shock at an Egyptian woman’s posting nude photographs of herself on the Internet in a conservative religious country where a vast majority of Muslim women are veiled and even men seldom bare their knees in public. In Egypt, even kissing in public is taboo.

    It is often the case that activists willing to defy social conventions, pushing the boundaries of what is considered acceptable anywhere, succeed in provoking discussion — while finding themselves ostracized and isolated. Indeed, Ms. Elmahdy learned that reality quickly after a Twitter post directed attention to her blog, and her pictures.

    Soon Ms. Elmahdy, a 20-year-old activist, found herself swept up in a campaign season political fight, especially among liberals battling conservative Islamists in the first election since President Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power.

    But if she thought she would get support from the left, she was wrong.

    “Many movements in Egypt, particularly Islamist movements, are trying to benefit,” said Emad Gad, a parliamentary candidate from the left-leaning Egyptian Social Democratic Party. “They say, ‘We have to protect our society from things like this, and if the liberals win then this woman will become a model for all Egyptian women.’ ”

    Liberal activists raced to disavow any connection to her. After reports this week indicated that Ms. Elmahdy was a member of the April 6th Youth Movement — a major player in the January revolt that unseated Mr. Mubarak — its spokesman, Tarek al-Kholi, told the pan-Arab news channel Al Arabiya that “the movement does not have any members who engage in such behavior.”

    “We are conservative youths, and we always encourage our members to be role models as far as ethics are concerned,” even barring atheists, Mr. Kholi said. “How can we have accepted the membership of a girl who behaves like this?” (Ms. Elmahdy confirmed in a Twitter posting that she did not belong to the group.)

    Ms. Elmahdy — whose boyfriend, Kareem Amer, spent four years in jail for writings deemed insulting to Islam and Mr. Mubarak — posted the photographs with a statement declaring them an act of rebellion against Egypt’s conservative culture and “sexual complexes,” in the spirit of the revolution.

    “Try nude models who worked in Fine Art Faculties in the early 1970s, hide all art books and smash naked archaeological statues,” read the statement, alluding to some recent protests staged here by ultra-conservative Islamists known as Salafis. “Then take off your clothes and look at yourselves in the mirror, then burn your body that you so despise to get rid of your sexual complexes forever, before subjecting me to your bigoted insults or denying my freedom of expression.”

    Soon after the post went live, apparently admiring allies sent out Twitter messages in support, inaugurating the nationwide debate. “A feminist #Jan25 revolutionary posted her nude photo on the internet to express her freedom. I’m totally taken back by her bravery!!” one ally, Ahmad Awadalla, a human rights activist, said on Twitter.

    Ms. Elmahdy did not respond to a Twitter request for comment, and her phone number was unavailable.

    The uproar over her pictures echoes a debate that flared up in Tunisia last month on the eve of its first free election, when a television station broadcast a film that is critical of the Islamist takeover after the Iranian revolution. Although some liberals said they had hoped that the animated film, “Persepolis,” would warn Tunisians about the dangers of an Islamist victory in their country, one scene violated an Islamic prohibition against personalized depictions of God. The resulting outrage stirred protests across the country, and Islamists cited it as an example of the need to defend their faith as they rode to triumph at the polls.

    But in Tunisia, it was not clear that many people had actually seen “Persepolis.”

    In Egypt, on the other hand, since it appeared Sunday, the post with the naked pictures has been viewed more than 1.6 million times and has attracted more than 2,000 comments, though many are quite critical. “Freedom,” wrote one detractor, “is not the same as degradation and prostitution.”

    What a stupid, stupid woman. People like this who think that nudity = liberalization are beyond thick. (Although the liberal movements have said she is nothing to do with them, people are tweeting things like "to express her freedom") I pity their stupidity.

    What's worse (or just as bad) is that Israeli women have decided to strip in 'support' of this. la hawla wa la quwata illa billah!!:

    Lol, 'modesty', you know.

    I stumbled upon this story on a Danish leftist newspaper and they were making her out to be some sort of freedom fighter.

    Abul Hasan Aim High.

    Very good thing that she's done.

    Now, more and more Egyptians will realize that this is the fruit of secular liberalism and inshallah heed the message of the Islamic parties that the solution to Egypt's problems lies in establishing Islam at all levels of society.
  6. Egyptians are Mashallah amazing people, what a disgrace!!!! :-(
    This what happens when people leave Allah's guidance.

    This goes back to my point earlier in the other egypt thread, that people because they've lived under a repressive regime are confused about all the different messages they receive around what is expected of them. To return to the Qu'ran and Sunnah is surely the only way to eradicate that confusion.

    If you think about it, look at the state of muslims in the UK, "British Islam", "my choice to wear the headscarf", "Our boys", "fard to vote for ken livingstone", etc. If everyone here is so messed up, what chance does someone have with like 2% of the available information to hand about what their purpose in life is and what is expected of them from Allah(swt)? Remember the muslims of egypt have never had the opportunity to debate their ideas freely like we are now, so its not surprising that people are so screwed up.

    Of course those whores making animal brothels would support this whoredom

    Egypt and Libya need to work together to establish some kind of united N African Islamic state and the first thing that should be done is the elimination of these kuffar prostitutes ... they can go to europe where they belong

    No suprise that this is how society has become under Mubarak.

    Asalaamu Alaikum,

    All western media are. Should see the BBC, doing such blatant comparison of "freedom = this kuffar" and "evil = Islamist".

    Ah, the age-old, tried and true, whore tactic... Can't get anyone to pay attention to you? Take off your clothes.

    90% of the male population who came across this news stopped reading at the word 'nude' and went to look at the pictures to rate her body and decide whether or not they'd 'hit it.' Only some bothered to continue reading afterward. And even fewer gave a damn.

    But by all means, please continue trying to convince yourself that people are searching for your name in Google because of your ideas and your courage and your personality... <font color="#0722A6">r</font><font color="#292C99">i</font><font color="#4A358C">i</font><font color="#6C3F7E">i</font><font color="#8D4871">i</font><font color="#A73A53">i</font><font color="#C22C35">i</font><font color="#DC1E17">i</font><font color="#B93B12">i</font><font color="#97590E">g</font><font color="#747609">h</font><font color="#519304">t</font>.

    She's being instructed by her western masters to push on an agenda for extreme liberalism. When a women has no brain or dignity, they get there body out for attention, she's a whore in both the literal term by her going nude like the animal she is and shes a whore in the way shes prostituting herself for some twisted extreme western agenda. Pity this fool and others like her, why doesn't this donkey whore just move to Amsterdam where she can put her ugly self on show for the hyenas who will come frothing at the window.

    10 years ago i once said that if a person would pull his pants down in an event related to politics, the western media and politicians will endorse it as something very brave and courageous worthy of reverence.

    I am sad to say that I was right.

    She's a murtadda first...then a prostitute. This is my main concern in the arab/muslim world. Usual murtaddeen are viewed in Egypt (not exclusively) with indifference, whilst unashamed persons like her are viewed with disgust. I'm not advocating nudity, i'm just saying that ridda is far worse, and this brothers is what led us to the pitiful state we are in, not prostitutes.
