Mosireen, a website run by Egyptian activists, has published a video compiling the interviews of several children who say they were tortured during their arrest and detention in prison.
The victims are between the ages of 12 and 17. Most of the children say they were beaten by police officers before being imprisoned. The children also explain the brutal treatment they suffered behind bars.

Zeid Taysian Mohammad Ahmad, 12 years old
A policeman threatened to cut my throat with a knife. He told me that if I didn’t tell him the truth, he would decapitate me and throw my head into the sea, and that nobody would ever find out what happened to me.
Islam Khaled Eid, 17 years old
They made us get out of the truck and began to beat us. They made us sit on the ground and took off all our clothes. We waited there for an hour, then they threw buckets of water on us […]. We were kept there for four days without any food.

More and more children are taking part in anti-(Muslim Brotherhood) government protests in Egypt. According to lawyers working with minors, several hundred children, some as young as 9, were arrested by the police and imprisoned following the January 25 protests marking the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution.

I wated one of the other videos on the Mosireen site. It was very interesting what one of the interviewees said:

"The Muslim Brotherhood kills the protestors, then they (the Muslim Brotherhood) will walk with the coffin of their own victims.

Why the hell is the Obama administration supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and the Morsi government?

Bob Beckel was sounding off about the Morsi government today . It is high time the rest of the left woke up to the nasty nature of the ideology behind the so-called 'Arab Spring'. A movement which has opened up the most debased impulses of Middle Eastern fanatics. Minorities and dissedents are being crushed under the heel of religious intolerance- wake up and smell the bloodlust.

Obummer is supporting them because he was told to. There is a much larger agenda here that dovetails with all the austerity changes happening in Europe; the US and soon Canada. I never supported the Arab Spring. That was merely an excuse for all the sexual sadistic sociopaths on one side to take down all the sexual sadistic sociopaths on the other side. I've said that the MB was the grandfather of all terrorist orgs for many years and no one listened; certainly not at Foggy Bottom or anywhere else in the free world. We just keep throwing away our money to people who won't better their masses let alone build infrastructures or pursue peace.

It's funny, I have been saying that the Palestinians abuse their own people, especially their children, for years but the anti-Semites have been ignoring it. Let's not forget that Muslims can do no wrong.

Beth, what else did you expect, they are cowards and won't tackle the adults so children make sense. Then there are the men paid to rape women for protesting (like they need it!) or to abuse Christians. Muslims don't like to deal with other Muslims especially men, they might get hurt.

Russell, why don't you ask Abdesalam to check the translation - on the bottom right of the screen are some symbols. The second one in from the left hand end (after the text box) is a rectangle that allows you to turn the captions on.

Sorry, I forgot, Muslims can do no wrong!

In backward societies children get abused, they grow up and become the abusers. Until the cycle is broken that's how it will be.
True what the muslims fear. If women are given rights their society would crumble. But it should crumble, it is an evil society. It is evil to enslave human beings, I'm sure even Allah doesn't aprove.
