Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood Meet to Plot Terror in Egypt

Despite all the liberal claims otherwise, the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda have a good deal in common. Al Qaeda leaders have come out of the Brotherhood and have worked together for common goals.

A chunk of Al Qaeda began as an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood splinter group. Its former leader now runs Al Qaeda. And they have some scores to settle down Egypt way.


Al-Qaida and the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood met secretly last week in Jordan according to a source quoted by the Egyptian daily Al-Youm al-Sabaa on Saturday.

The meeting focused on the conflict in Egypt and Syria and an altercation broke out between a Brotherhood member and jihadist leader Mohammad al-Miqdad, and the latter asked the Brotherhood not to publicly denounce the actions of the jihadists.

The jihadists discussed their plans to start moving Syrian and Iraqi jihadists into Egypt in order to carry out terror operations there after the Eid al-Adha festival, which falls on Tuesday.

It was explained in the meeting that the attempted assassination against the Egyptian interior minister and the attack on a satellite dish, which is part of the state’s TV communication system, were meant to demonstrate that they could access vital institutions in Cairo.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda’s current leader, joined the Muslim Brotherhood at 14. He rose to head the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, which he eventually folded into Al Qaeda.

Zawahiri’s core Al Qaeda has been somewhat sidelined, but this is a chance to head up a terror campaign in Egypt together with his old Brotherhood pals who have extensive western contacts.

The old gang is getting back together again.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Was John Kerry also there with pockets full of cash?
