On November 15, 2021, New York-based Muslim Brotherhood activist Bahgat Saber uploaded a video to his YouTube and Facebook accounts in which he cursed and threatened Egyptian Coptic priest Zakaria Botros, who is known for his criticism of Islam. Using expletives, Saber cursed Botros and his mother, and said that if "the Christian dog" Botros were in the United States like some people have said he is, he would go "beat the crap" out of him. Saber also threatened Egyptian political analyst Magdi Khalil, whom he also called a "Christian dog," saying that if he curses the Prophet he will beat him as well. Bahgat further emphasized that the punishment for cursing the Prophet Muhammad is decapitation. Saber stressed: "Decapitation, you sons of filthy whores!"
In a previous video, uploaded to Facebook in March 2020 (see MEMRI TV Clip no 7872), Saber called on Egyptians who experience the symptoms of COVID-19 to deliberately go to Egyptian police stations public prosecution offices, courthouses, embassies, and consulates and shake hands with government officials in order to exact revenge against President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi's government, which he said is deeply corrupt, and avenge the people Sisi has oppressed. He added that if he gets coronavirus, he plans to go to the Egyptian consulate in New York and infect the people working there.
Bahgat Saber: "If [Egyptian Coptic priest] Zakaria Botros, that son of a f*cking bitch, whose mother was a whore with a towel in her c*nt, had said 'Sisi, go home!' they would have beaten the crap out of him. He would have been extradited from Cyprus a long time ago. This son of a bitch lives in Cyprus. Some people are saying that he lives in America, but he doesn't. He does not live in America! If he does, give me the address, and I will beat the crap out of him.
"Let's make this easy. If anyone has information that Botros, that Christian dog, that son of a bitch, that homo, who was born when a piggy priest opened his mother's legs and f*cked her... We have been quiet for a long time. There is another son of a bitch called Magdi Khalil, who lives here in America. He talks about Islam in a mistaken way. Fine. You can criticize Islam as much as you want. But if this Christian dog ever thinks of turning against our Prophet, I will beat the crap out of him.
"When [a Muslim] attacks Christianity, he attacks the religion itself, you Christian dog. He attacks the mistakes in your religion. Go and discuss it with him, you f*cker. But when you lie about our Prophet, even though you sons of bitches know that the punishment for cursing our Prophet is beheading... Beheading, you sons of bitches. There is no question about this. Any son of a whore whose mother sticks a finger up his ass... Decapitations, you sons of filthy whores!"
