    Egypt: Fundamentalists hurl Kids from Building, Beat Them (Caution: Explicit)
    Posted on 07/07/2013 by Juan Cole
    This video is circulating via YouTube showing two kids being hurled from what looks like a 20-feet-high parapet to the roof of an apartment building and then being beaten. The people attacking them are hard line Muslim fundamentalists; one is carrying a black al-Qaeda flag. The youths who were attacked are alleged to have been anti-Morsi. At least one is said to be dead; I actually can’t see how either survived. The scene of the twisted, fallen body being beaten is especially hard to see. This happened in Sidi Jaber, Alexandria.

    My advice to you is not to watch this video, since you can’t unsee it and it is very disturbing.

    Here it is, for those with strong stomachs who are over 18. I am not embedding it, since I don’t want an unwary reader to click on it in error. You’ll have to actively seek to see it.
