Ansar Beit el-Maqdes is a terrorist organization currently carrying out operations in Egypt. The group recently released a video detailing an operation that targeted and destroyed Daqahliya Security Directorate. Moreover, the video explains why they have resolved to terrorism to fight the “infidels” and counter the “blasphemy” entrenched in Muslim societies. Among the speakers in the video is former ISIS leader Abu-Omar Al-Boghdady (min3:34) . In a previous video, also by Ansar Beit el-Maqdes, Ayman el Zawahiri himself addresses the Egyptian people (min 30:30) . He asserts that Egypt will continue to produce Islamic Jihadists.
The presence of two prominent Al-Qaeda figures in Ansar Beit el-Maqdes video, in the light of the Muslim Brotherhood-Al-Qaeda US-initiated deal, assures the Egyptian based terrorist group is in league with Al-Qaeda.
The first speaker in the Daqahlia video is the suicide bomber who blew up the directorate. He is an extremely bitter bigot who has absolutely no problem blowing us up to million pieces. He’s terrifying because he welcomes death with open arms and embodies destruction. What he fails to comprehend is that the soldiers and generals of the Egyptian Army do not know what fear is.
As always, I would like to thank Dr. Samir Ghattas, head of the Middle East Forum for Strategic Studies, for bringing these points up to the public’s attention.
