Chaining a man to the back of one's pick-up and dragging him down the road until he disintegrates, because of his skin color, as has been done in the
southern US (by white good ol' boys), is so much more quaint and civilized, huh? Or quartering and beheading a referee who stabbed to death a soccer
player in a dispute, which happened in Brazil (Catholic, Brazilian soccer fans)
In Egypt right now they're having what's called civil unrest, i.e. the the contending groups are very uncivil to one another. Calling the
perpetrators of this event an Islamic lynch mob is being a bit disingenuous. There are Muslims on both sides of this in the ongoing unrest. It seems
like you're just looking for Muslim straw men to knock down. The military is also killing the pro-Morsi demonstrators, and I'll bet supporters of
each side are killing people of the other side. That's what happens when civil society breaks down during political disturbances. Sometimes
countries even have civil wars and commit massive violence against each other -- you might have heard of the US Civil War.
Also curious to know how it is substantiated that the flag being held is an Al Qaeda flag. It looks like an Al Shabaab from what I can find via
google and wikipedia. Taking the the Daily Mail at its word is not generally a good plan; all you're doing is spreading misinformation.
It seems posts like these are meant to make Islam and Muslims look violent when in fact the situation is more complicated, i.e. there are Muslims on
both sides in this political dispute, and senseless violence often happens during such times. For some reason the Daily Mail hasn't covered all the
senseless violence perpetrated by the US and UK forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. It and you want to focus on the senseless violence of people
different from yourselves.
