Hardcore Muslim Brotherhood (MB) supporters are awaiting a signal to commence a campaign of ‘sexual Jihad’ within their sit-in camp in Cairo; which is something a Fatwa (religious edict) posted on a MB-affiliated Facebook paged suggests will soon be allowed.

The fatwa came in response to a question by a female Brotherhood supporter asking if ‘sexual Jihad’ is allowed in Rabea al-Adawiya Square and the rest of Egyptian squares where people have been protesting since 30 June.

The religious answer was: “Not now. Let us wait first for what will happen, may God strengthen the Mujahedeen.”

“Sexual Jihad” refers the female Islamists offering their sexual services to their male counterparts so they remain motivated to continue the struggle for their cause.
