A demonstration in support of the Muslim Brotherhood and deposed President Mohamed Morsi was held on Parliament Hill in Ottawa today. The video below was taken by a reader and sent to Vlad Tepes, who edited it, annotated it, and uploaded it:
So what’s the deal with the four fingers? Pakistaniyan notes that they’ve become a symbol for supporters of Mr. Morsi’s regime since the military crackdown earlier this month:
Have you seen the yellow and black colored four fingered hand sign on social media recently and want to know that what is it? Why people are posting about it on internet? Raaba/Rabia or R4BIA is four in arabic, and this hand sign by raising 4 fingers has become the symbol of the massacre in Egypt as well as Rabaa al-Adawiya Square where the anti-coup protests take place.
And Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has used the same symbol in solidarity with Muslim Brotherhood supporters:
Erdoğan saluted several times the crowd with the ‘Rabaa’ sign made by raising four fingers, which has become the symbol of the killings in Egypt and at the Rabaa al-Adawiya Square where the supporters of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi have gathered for weeks.
And here’s a reminder of what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for, in case anyone has forgotten — the Muslim Brotherhood Motto:
Allah is our objective.
The Prophet is our leader.
The Qur’an is our law.
Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
So this is what those earnest yellow-clad “Canadians” are really demonstrating in support of.
With just a dash of taqiyya and a soupçon of kitman, they’ve fooled the good citizens of Ottawa into thinking they’re devotees of democracy. How many Canadians have looked past the surface of all this fluff?
Vlad has also posted a video from Gaza showing what the four fingers mean to the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine — i.e. Hamas. Check it out.
