Popular Egyptian Shaykh Muhammad al-Zoghby, berates and curses a presumed Shi'ite caller on live TV, on the Egyptian station Safa, August 29, 2011. Based on what a few Arabic forum threads have said concerning the full video, Shaykh al-Zoghby had spent most of the show discussing the 'crimes' of the Shi'ites, which apparently prompted this caller.

Caller: How are you?

Host: Hello.

Caller: I also want to greet that mangy dog sitting next to you.

Host: You’re the mangy d—

Shaykh al-Zogby: Damn you, and damn your father! I’m the one who’s Muslim. I’m the one who’s pure. You’re filthy, your father’s filthy, and your back is filthy. I know what you’re good for, you scum. If I were there I would go after you and everyone in your village who is supporting you, and force them underneath these pure shoes, you disgusting filth, because glory is ours, and humiliation is yours until the final hour.
