There’s a new hand symbol that’s taking the world by storm. And no, it’s not “V for Victory”.  Avatars and memes of the symbol are  exploding across social media, including Facebook and Twitter. The Turkish Prime Minister used the symbol at a rally, and supporters from New York to Malaysia have adopted it to show their solidarity with deposed President Morsi and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.

The image — a black hand, with four fingers raised and the thumb drawn across the palm — is being called “R4bia”. It’s a reference to the Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque, the Cairo site of a pro-Brotherhood sit-in that ended in a violent confrontation with the Egyptian Security Force.

The Turkish-based website calls the use of the hand symbol,  “the birth of a new movement for freedom and justice”.

What does it stand for? As explained on the website:

What is R4BIA?

R4BIA is a symbol of freedom

R4BIA is the birth of a new movement for freedom and justice

R4BIA is the birth of a new world

R4BIA is the return of Muslims to world stage

R4BIA means justice, freedom and conscience

R4BIA is the place where the so-called values of the West collapsed

R4BIA means the Egyptian heroes who became free by dying

R4BIA is Egypt, Syria, Palestine and the whole geography of Islam

R4BIA is the name of those who wake all the Islamic world with their death

R4BIA is the place of people who show the death is a revival

Want to know the power of this hand gesture? The “four finger salute”, being used by supporters and members of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, is already a terrifying symbol to brutalized Copts. According to Persecution.Org, “For Christians…it has become a symbol that evokes fear and a sign of coming violence…”

There is a one million Muslim march on Washington D.C., disgustingly planned on 9/11. According to The American Muslim Political Action Committee, the march is an effort to “demand that our civil rights be protected by our government”.

To counter the Muslim protest, a Facebook page has been created to coordinate  “2 Million Bikers to DC” on the same date. Their stated purpose is: ”To honor those who were killed on 9/11 and our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack!”

(Someone must see the irony in this, as one group marches claiming to be “victims” while another group seeks to honor the “true victims”.)

It will be interesting to see how many of the Muslim marchers raise their hands in the “four finger salute” in support of Morsi and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, who are determined in their quest to purge Egypt of the Coptic Christian.

As interesting as that might be to observe, it would be infinitely more interesting to see two million bikers lift up their hands together in solidarity and give the Muslim marchers their own version of a one-fingered gesture.  (One can dream…)

    It would be great to see 2 million “hawgs” give the muzzies the middle finger salute.

  2. Sarah Conner says:

    Take lots of bacon and bacon by products with you and give the moose heads the universal ‘bird’ salute…wish we had some audio of 2 million ‘hawgs’ thundering in d.c.,that would be impressive indeed…

  3. Myrtle Linder says:

    Their evil is complete, therefore they need a symbol that is so easy to great each other anywhere, any time without one word. Thanks for showing, so that the rest of us will know also, who is for us and who is against us with only a hand signal.

  4. got243kids says:

    We Scots have our own.. been effective for centuries.

    Thank you for the heads up.

    Lets face it, it really comes down to a simple equasion; that the Brotherhood / Al Quidia want’s to control the world, period. They will do whatever they have to do , using those tactics that have proved to be a weakening point in our society (claiming “victim”) to advance their ideaology and their plan for world domination. They apparently have a sympathetic ear in the seats of power within our nation which seems to bend over backward, all in the name of “promoting democracy / democratic rule” to promote their hidden agenda. But yet their “democracy” always looks like authoritian rule by ideaological theology of force over the people.
    I agree, there should be that “one ” salute in response. The people need to call out those who are assisting and formenting the movement which is counter to the Republic in our government.
    The bantering and discussing are doing nothing but,………. nothing.
    The American people need to counter demonstrate their resolve en masse. The American people need to network together in a non- political manner that visually says that they are fed up with the pandering to those who will destroy us. This action transends party affiliation; because both of the partys combined are making the nation, The Republic and the American People a greater victim . They both appear to have the same agenda.
    I would pray that the American people can see this situation for what it truly is; the dismanteling of this once great nation, and that would be enough of a call to act. That they would disconnect with the R and D label long enough to be united in the preservation of the Republic.
    There is not much time left to act, as this present situation will unleash a firestorm that will sweep the world and will leave this nation a shell of its former self. When that happens, the future will be chaos, and violent.
    Ask yourself, what is preserving this Republic worth?

    I’ve seen Obama give the four-fingered salute!! It just proves he’s the devil himself and that he’s on the side of EVIL! Never in human history has a President declared war without congress approval, he’s trying to ruin our constitution with his department of homeland security!! His response to Katrina was awful, I think he should be impeached for what he did to that intern! He’s a muslim usurper and an atheist commie who practices witchcraft with satan!

  7. 7loubro_4 says:

    Thanks, Lydia, this is the first I have heard of this. I do think that the people/beasts of the killing and organ eating persuasion do not like the menu in America would just pack up their burqas, machetes, and torture manuals and shuffle on off to Muslimland.

  8. Tangible666 says:

    Ha. This “article” is hilarious. It ALMOST came across as an unbiased, thoughtful piece of journalism that covered all sides of the story. And by “almost,” I mean “not even remotely in the same hemisphere.”

    • ginger says:

      And just why is that?? facts please.

      • Tangible666 says:

        “As interesting as that might be to observe, it would be infinitely more interesting to see two million bikers lift up their hands together in solidarity and give the Muslim marchers their own version of a one-fingered gesture. (One can dream…)” Fact: The previous statement is an opinion, not a fact, thus it is not news. Fact:, which this pathetic joke of an “article” references, is not a reputable news source. It is an opinion blog, just like this one. Fact: Your type always clamors for this nation to be based on the constitution. If you can remember correctly (frankly, I’d be surprised if most of you can read above a 6th grade level), what these people want to do is the essence of … wait for it…. THE FIRST AMENDMENT.

        • ABigClassic says:

          In the authors bio, it states that she self-identifies as a social commentator, not a journalist. This article is consistent with that and also serves to educate the public about the meaning of a symbol which may become relevant to our public safety at some point in the future. Personally, I appreciate this article as a public service announcement. Thank you, Ms. Goodman!

        • ginger says:

          And just what is my “type”? The Constitution of our Republic (not democracy) is supposed to be the law of the land..and it is being eroded by the current administration as never before..those in “power” wish us to adhere to their agenda and strip us of OUR rights while extending them to illegals and others who wish us harm.It is still our right to demonstrate as we wish…even is we oppose the government position.

    • lbc says:

      @ tangible666, when are you people going to realize that we Americans don’t like or want you muslim-loving fanatics in our country? Do us all a favor and slit your throats and go be with allah now!

      • Tangible666 says:

        Do us all a favor and go get that GED. Oh, wait, education and thinking for yourself is a liberal conspiracy. Better go hide in the basement with a Bible and some guns, cuz dat derr gubment gonna git u!

    Muslims meaning for the 4 finger salute:

    1. We’re number 4! We’re number 4!
    2. My IQ is 4!
    3. I’m stuck in the 4th century!
    4. I own 4 camels and 4 goats and I am married to all of them!

    5. If we attack America, I will have 4 days to live!
    6. My favorite 4 words, “Death To America”. (like Bidens favorite 3 letter word, “JOBS”).

  10. Truthplez says:

    Diversity has tripped up and regurgitated when Americans are asked to believe the Arabic shout to Mohammed is the same as Praise to our Universe’s God and Creator. McCain appears to have been indoctrinated into this deceiver’s practice to change American’s faith in our Almighty God to accept the murdering Mohammed as anything holy. The muslim world has held one and one-half century hatred for Christians, and life effort to kill every one of them. Diversity promoters now deluded into their hated for Americans strive daily to turn our civil rights into the hate-mongers rights! Too much drug induced thinkers!

  11. KJ says:

    Enough already. Lock them all in like a roach motel. Cut off immigration of Muslims outside their sand heaps. And bury convicted Muslim extremists with pig parts. Political correctness be damned. Middle East civilizations have contributed nothing good to humanity for over two thousand years. They can be masters of their domain. Drink your oil and eat your sand. If you refuse to play nice with the rest of the civilized world, then die in your barbaric dumps.

  12. Breezeyguy says:

    Any relation to the “Black Hand” movement that assassinated Franz Joseph Hapsburg and started WW1?

  13. SEBtopdog says:

    Yes, like so many others, when I saw this I feel the only reasonable salute in response would involve only one finger … well, two if you use both hands.

  14. Biff Sarin says:

    Muslims represent roughly 0.7% of the 300 million US citizens. That means that all US Muslims total roughly 2.1 million people. Soooo someone thinks that they can get one out of every two Muslims in the country to show up in Washington??? Whatever. They’ll be lucky if they can organize a 1,000 muslim march.

  15. johnnywood says:

    What is the meaning of the “four fingered salute”? It represents that stuff in the cow pasture that you don`t want to step in.

  16. I have a feeling that more Real Americans than the Bikers will be in DC on 9/11. Lots of hard working American Tax Payers will be there, also.

  17. daplumba says:

    it is called target identification

  18. Carolina Biker/Retired Marine says:

    I’ll be doing the 1 million bikers to DC ride on the 11th. I’ll be more than happy to lift the first finger when I get there. Rest assured that it will be the one in the middle.

    Semper Fi

  19. Darrell Lynch says:

    The only salute I will ever give any muslim, is the middle finger salute!

  20. Nolan Ashman says:

    I prefer the one-finger (middle) salute to our goat lovin’ camel riders. That way they won’t get stymied trying to count to four.

  21. THOMAS says:

    I prefer this one finger salute my self.I also like to say to all moslims neck knee mississippi.
    What our troops need to do while they are in muslim brotherhood country is return the faver of blowing up a building as they did on 9/11 in NEW YORK.WE NEED TO have our troops take a few pounds of high explosives an blow up the mosk on the rock.That should be a fare reminder for them so they don’t mess with us again.ALL AMERICANS STAND UP AN CHEER.

  22. toongoon says:

    Muslim Morons. We have to teach them to count to five,

  23. Robert Wheatley says:

    I have a one finger salute for all of them.

  24. Alton Clark says:

    That is a right hand and they just love to cut off peoples hands so we do the same thing with their right hands then they would have to drive all of those CAB’S with the one hand !

  25. wmkabrich says:

    What this four finger salute means is that it will take for of the brother hood to take down 1 REAL AMERICAN PATRIOT.

  26. Donna Lewis says:

    I give them the middle finger salute !!!

  27. patty says:

    DC refused to give our Hawgs a permit to be at the Million Muslims march.
    Why does that not surprise me.
