Video of Muslim Brotherhood militia throwing children from a rooftop in Alexandria, Egypt, on July 5, 2013

The video below is discussed in the article, "Germany, the U.S. and the EU push to save their clerical fascist pet in Egypt," by Jared Israel and Samantha Criscione, posted on Emperor's Clothes on July 30, 2013.

Warning: The video below is horrifying.  Filmed on July 5, 2013 from a nearby building, it shows four boys, perhaps 13 years old, on a rooftop and water tank in Alexandria, Egypt.  Apparently they have done something to offend the Muslim Brotherhood.  A squad of Brotherhood militia is sent into the building, up onto the roof.  The video shows them throwing two of the boys from the water tower, then beating at least one of them with sticks.

On July 11, Ahram Online ran a story covering the arrest of two Muslim Brotherhood members for this crime. Here is an excerpt:

[Excerpt from Ahram Online starts here]

Two Muslim Brotherhood members accused of throwing teenage boys from a rooftop in Alexandria have been detained for 15 days pending investigations, state news agency MENA reported.

A teenager was killed after supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi threw him off a ledge on a rooftop.

The defendants admitted the crime and were detained for four days before a judge extended their detention on Thursday.

A video of the incident -- which went viral online -- shows a mob cornering four teenage boys on top of a water tank then throwing two of them from the six metre-high ledge. The boy who died was severely beaten as he lay injured. The other suffered injuries.
