Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef has denounced the killing of four Egyptian Shiites by Sunni Muslims on Sunday in Giza Governorate.

"Today a Shiite, tomorrow a Sufi, after tomorrow a Copt and a Baha'i, then a Muslim whoever does not accept application of Sharia according to your understanding and, finally, someone you do not like," Youssef tweeted.

"Muslims insult other religions and say they are distorted and false. However, they hand out Qur'ans freely in the West, but here we kill who annoys us," he added.

"If we are saying that it [Islam] is a mercy to the worlds, who would survive of these worlds when you kill people who believe in doctrines you do not like and insult others?" questioned Youssef, who is referred to as Egypt's Jon Stewart.

He noted that when a Muslim rejoices for the killing of another Muslim who embraces a different doctrine, he must not get upset when Zionists and Sikhs kill Muslims.

"You are an enemy of humanity, so do not ask to be treated humanely," Youssef added.
