Fabricated Terrorist News

The country of Egypt has been accused of fabricating news that mentioned about a sect which was deemed illegal and said to be linked to terrorist group.

The Victorious Sect, an unknown Islamic group, was said to have caused unrest in the country and had planned to cause some disruptions at tourism sites and gas pipelines (just claims only).

By putting up such news in the media and coupled with its state security investigations, Egypt was accused of arresting 22 people in connection with this Victorious Sect. The arrests were made even though there were little or no evidence in the claims as stated above. The Human Rights Watch said that Egypt's intention in fabricating such news was to allow it to implement the controversial emergency laws which will give sweeping powers of detention to the security forces.

If Egpyt as a country can do the above, it's not surprising to see other countries doing it especially you know which one ..................... the above scenario somehow painted a similar picture happening recently and nearby. Think about it.

My own perspective - look at America! We're proposing, and in some limited cased implementing such laws. We've implemented anti-terror laws and honestly is scares the begeesus out of many here.

Moreso - we have become hypocrites in the eyes of the world. Our diplomatic positions abroad become untenable as the mention of "terrorism" suddenly becomes a trump card against human rights and due process of the law.

I honestly hope that such emergency laws are eventually given proper checks-and-balances so that justice is assured and rights are preserved.
