Muslim Brotherhood Leader Akef says “Fuck Egypt”

The ambitious “banned” or the non-banned Sunni Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mahdy Akef insulted Egypt and Egyptians by saying in an interview conducted by the popular Rosaelyoussif paper “Toz fy Masr wa ely gabo masr”. “Toz” is not an Arabic word, but it is a word used by Egyptians when they want to decently say fuck something. “Masr” is Egypt in Arabic.

Lawyer Hussein Mahmoud Hussein filed a case of libel and slander against the Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mahdy Akef for insulting Egypt and Egyptians on April 12 at Nasr City district in Cairo.

Rosa el Youssif Journalist Said Shoeb interviewed the MB leader on the group’s activities, ideology and on their success after winning 20% of Egypt’s parliament’s seats. Akef surprised everyone by insulting Egypt and Egyptians and using indecent words. The Islamic movement believes and campaigns for “Islam is a Solution” as political slogan Egypt.

Among strange statements this man gave during the interview:

  1. “He welcomes a Malaysian Muslim to govern Egypt”. Let me explain this he means that any Muslim even if he comes from the moon is acceptable than any Christian or Egyptian Copt. His hatred speech against other faiths and non-Muslim Egyptians is very obvious every time he opens his mouth.
  2. He said any Christian (he meant Egyptian Copts) who wants to rule Egypt wants to cause sectarian rifts. Oh yes, democracy is the deed of the western infidels and Egypt is not for all its citizens. Muslims must have priority and supremacy over non-Muslim Egyptians, is that what he meant?

During the interview which Rosa el Youssif has a record of and published; Akef used some derogatory words in Egyptian Arabic that are socially unacceptable. They are difficult to translate for their Egyptian cultural association. But I will mention some for those who speak Arabic; “7’amorgy”, “beta3 neswan”, "toz"…etc.

Egypt’s Penal Law has many articles that condemn using insults or unacceptable words publicly.

Akef’s repulsive interview and statements caused a rift among the Muslim Brotherhood leaderships. A wing led by Mahmoud Habib and Abdel Moneam Abo Al fotouh are asking Akef to apologize, not because they are different, but power competition is surfacing. The second wing is led by the Muslim Brotherhood Mufti, Mohamed Abdulla Al Khateeb. He is against apology because he believes apology will cause a set back to the Islamic movement. Other leaders excused Akef by saying he was joking and that journalist should not have published jokes. Insulting Egypt and Egyptians reveal their allegiance and strategies. Anyway, now it is not their decision to apologize or not, because the Egyptian courts and laws will decide on that.

Finally, I want to add a comment on Akef's statements. They actually explain why it is easy to recruit terrorists? Because, their allegiance is to Islam not to the country and their nationality is Islam not their citizenship. His statements explain why Muslim British citizens went to blow up themselves in Britian's subway. They actually say "Fuck Britian" and please excuse my language. MB's allegiance is to Islam not to Egypt or the Egyptian people. Their thirst for power is not for Egypt but for Islam...and that explains it all.

Toz.. don't mean Fuck!

To M.Habib :
Yes it does
it is the nearist English equivelant to "TOZ"
it was rude and totally irresponsible to be said by one in Akif's position .
However , a Fundamentalist Moslim's loyalty is to "Universal Islam" not to their own Countries .
They have no loyalty to any countries . they can even Bomb their own country if they think it does not fit as part of the "Ummah" (Islamic Nation),hence they divide the world into "Dar Al-Islam" and "Dar Al-Harb" (Land of Islam and Land of war)

Are you defending Akef or the word "Toz"?

In my assessment, "Fuck" is the closest word to "Toz" culturally speaking.

At 3:09 PM, Anonymous Mustafa said...

I think you think TOZ means fuck because of fuck being so common and not as nasty as it sounds or used to be. Don't give a shit or damn, for that matter, would be a more accurate translation IMHO.

In slight and unrelated to the subject way, I agree with Akef. I hate the guts of this country, and being a dual national I hate both of my presidents. While I hate Egypt to the gut, I still would love to see the people uprise and eventually become a free country then I wouldn't mind loving it, I'd actually enjoy it. But till then I'm going keep this love hat equilibrium.

To : M. Habib :
Your writtings are very disturbing to say the least..
You say "we Moslims don't accept borders" what exactly do you mean??
Is other people's Countries, lands,properties,may be their women and children are free for you to take simply because you are moslim ??? Please tell us what you mean ???
You also said"...the journalist that refused that (Egypt) to be governed by non-Egyptian"
Do you really want Egypt to be governed by non-Egyptian???
Is that Patriotism or Treachery ?
Are you really Egyptian ???
Your ideas are shocking

Last anon,

Who asked YOUR Muslim Brotherhood to speak for Egyptians to decide on including Egypt in an AN ISLAMIC EMPIRE. I DO NOT WANT TO BE PART OF AN ISLAMIC EMPIRE.I want a free democratic Egypt.

And who told you that Pakistani or a Malysian muslim wants to be with YOUR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ISLAMIC EMPIRE. Who are you to decide for others as well????

I have to agree with you Freedom. What a stupid man and what a stupid movement. They have pushed back egyptian development decades. Egypt was far more enlightened prior to 1952. The rise of th eMuslim Brotherhood - encouraged by the 'free officers' movement - screwed up Egypt.

I only hope the people begin to wake up and realise the depravity of the fundamentalist thugs that are the Muslim Brotherhood.

Well, why are we surprised? I remember taking a religious class when I was a kid where a woman who became a Muslim in the prophet's time did not let her father in her house because he was still a non-Muslim. And that was given as a positive example of how when you're a true believer in Islam, nothing else matters - only Islam matters. That line of thought fits right in to that mentality. That's why secularism is the ONLY solution.

"Toz" does not equal "Fuck" ! It means "I do not care about".
Your article contains many twisting ...
You are complaining about "accepting a Malaysian to be the head of Egypt"
OK. Can I ask you how many times, Egyptians went to ask non-Egyptians to be their president ? Did it happen before ?
Do you have an answer ? ... Read the history ... Who brings "Mohamed Ali" ... Egyptians who asked him or not ?

The second point you are complaining about "A crestian leader" ? Did you hear German president when he said "I will not wait to have germany ruled by a one is called Mohamed" ... Seond, ask US or France or England ... Can they accept to be controlled by a muslim or buddahist or Hindu ... Hey, you can write whatever you can say what you like but you can not decieve readers !
I do not care about Akef (Toz fe Akef) and I do not like using putting religion in polotics ! but Toz Feek (in your way !) ...

You are missing the point because of your ignorance...
You are not worth a reply... You won't understand it anyway !

first, I'd like to state that I'm not a member of the MB (which does NOT imply anything wrong with them or with me).. second, your assessment is wrong..."toz" does NOT mean "fuck".. "toz" exactly means "i don't care" or "couldn't care less".. I'm sorry to say the following: the word used by egytians to mean "fuck" is "k*s *m" (yeah and again i'm sorry but I had to say it).. last but not least, did you ever read the "full" transcript of the conversation? (statements before and after and their context, that's it). I really think you didn't, but merely relied on the likes of Rose Alyousif which intentionly did a special "montage" to the headlines to make them sound offensive like they did as yes one another government-cooked dirty trick to toy with the uninformed minds and unfortunately I see some success. Certainly critique to anyone's ideology is important and healthly, but not when it comes to misinformation and word plays..

I think "Damn" is a better equivalent. But I still think that it is not acceptabele to say "Damn Egypt" at all

You're hitting the nail on the head... I don't know whate everyone's complaining about... a nail in Egypt's coffin.

I don't think you are accurate when you translate "Toz" as F*" This is sensationalization. I believe you need to learn facts before you write.

Egypt is a stupid country and I'm not an Egyptian citizen but a graduate from Al-Azhar in Islamic Studies.

I'd love to see Hosni Mubarak, who is a Copt be hung for apostasy just as Saddam Hussein was sentenced to die by hanging for being Christian.

Yes, its a FACT that Saddam Hussein appointed a Christian, Tareq Aziz as his deputy Prime Minister.

In the new Iraq, there are NO Christians who are systematically expulled for colloborating with Saddam Hussein.

I thank America for destroying the murtad, Saddam Hussein.

Allah Subhana Wa Taala will on the day of judgement give murtads a grivious penalty.

Toz Fi El Muslim Brotherhood and tozeen feek ya Akif! Egypt is for EGYPTIANS, not for a religion! Religion is between you and God and the way you treat people! and a TRUE MUSLIM MUST treat other religions with respect!

Why the hell is the MB even allowed to operate...Mubarak is TOO NICE, yes i mean it, he needs to drop the hammer on those pieces of garbage!

The way Islam has become to many Egyptians is SO WRONG, they have become WAHABI SALAFI IDIOTS, not Normal Muslims!!

Please visit my blog to read why SECULAR EGYPT is the only ANSWER
