A man who says he is Egypt’s official state executioner has appeared on a video saying how much he enjoys his job.

MEMRI, the organization that disseminated and translated the clip, was founded in 1998 by a former Israeli military intelligence officer and an Israeli-American political scientist. The organization has often been accused of spreading pro-Israeli propaganda that portrays the Arab world in a negative light.
