Egypt’s Executioner: Strangling Has Been My Hobby Since Childhood “I Love My Job” (Video)

How awful–
Egypt’s executioner says he loves his job. “I am carrying it out for Allah.” Hajj Abd Al-Nabi also says strangling has been his hobby since childhood.
What an animal.

MEMRI reported:

Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: I am the executioner of the Arab Republic of Egypt. I hold the rank of chief warrant officer in the police and the prison authority. I am Egypt’s executioner, responsible for carrying out the death penalty.

[…]

I love people, and people love me, but when I am doing my job, I am carrying out the law of Allah.

[…]

When it comes to carrying out our my job, I am tough. The murderer has done an abominable thing, and I cannot be soft with him. If I were soft towards this criminal, I wouldn’t be able to execute him, but when I’m at home, with my kids, I am as calm as can be.

[…]

I have placed [the noose] around some 800 heads – tough people, big people, young people… All the despicable crimes – killing, adultery, premeditated murder, and so on… I carry out all the death sentences.

In all honesty, I love my work. I just love it! I never say “no” when they need me at work. This is my work and my livelihood.

[…]

When I was young – about 13 or 14 years old – the dry Ismailiya Canal in Shubra Al-Kheima still had water in it. My hobby was to catch a cat, to place a rope around its neck, to strangle it, and throw it into the water. I would get hold of any animal – even dogs. I would strangle these animals and throw them into the water – even dogs.
