Obama's Egypt Unleashes Islamic Morality Police

So, Egypt, how's that "democracy" working out for you?

From the Digital Journal via TROP (emphasis mine):

Islamic Cleric Hisham el-Ashri, founder of Egypt's newly launched Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, stated the morality police will only use "non-violent methods" to implement the moral principles of Islam, the IB Times reported.

El-Ashri said: "We will only offer advice to those who want to listen. We shall have no business with people who refuse to listen to us."

In spite of el-Ashri's declarations of non-violence the Salafist morality enforcers will carry canes to beat violaters. According to Bikya News they will be provided with electric tasers at some point in the future.

Yeah, there's no point in offering advice if they won't accept it after a good beating.
