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 some MB-affiliated Facebook pages 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 to the phenomenon of female Islamists offering their sexual services to their male counterparts so they remain motivated to continue the struggle for their cause. The fatwa prompted more than 1,400 user comments, with many responding with sarcasm and ridicule. One commentator wrote: "If there is sexual Jihad, we are ready to abandon Tahrir square and join Rabea al-Adawiya, may God destroy the Hashish camp. Tahrir square is where liberal anti-Morsi protesters are camping to defend the military's decision to overthrow the Islamist president."

Another commentator wrote: "Is this a square or a house of prostitution? And you are calling us seculars and apostates; I swear we are more honorable than you. One person challenged the fatwa as "wrong," sarcastically saying that that "sexual Jihad" should be allowed now for the square to become an attraction for Jihadists nationwide.

An Arab daily online newspaper quoted Muslim Brotherhood member Saif al-Nahi as saying that the Facebook page is part of a smear campaign against the Islamist group that began since Morsi's ascension to power.
