Egypt is currently in political chaos – and this recent post by a Muslim Brotherhood member is revealing – but the following behaviour is utterly counter-productive:

Egypt has ordered the seizure of a special edition of the German news magazine Der Spiegel after it was deemed to be insulting to Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, newspapers reported today.

Information Minister Anas al-Fiqi took the decision “to defend Islamic values and confront attempts to damage the prophet, the Muslim religion and religion in general”, the state-run daily Al-Gomhuriya said.
