Muslim Brotherhood Ayman Al-Zawahiri, New Al-Qaida Leader. By Assad Elepty


On 2nd May following confirmation of the killing of Osama Bin Laden I predicted Ayman Al-Zawahiri would take the helm of Al-qaida, it is now official.
Ayman Muhammad Rabaie al-Zawahiri may not be in egypt, but he still has very close ties with the muslim brotherhood old guard and their spiritual leader. Mahmoud Hussein, secretary general of the Muslim brotherhood in egypt said, "we respect Ayman Al-Zawahiri and his struggle against those that invade muslim countries, he is not a formal member, but I can not say he is not a member of the brotherhood, we support him in his struggle".
Al-zawahiri was Involved in Islamist politics since he was a young boy and arrested for being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood when only 15 years old.
Hussein continued by saying, "Al-Zawahiri was not only lieutenant to Osama bin Laden, he was also his personal physician, he is very intillegent and will avenge the murder of Bin Laden. Al-Qaida will be more active under his leadership."
When he joined the Muslim Brotherhood at age 14, Al-Zawahiri along with four other secondary school students, helped form an "underground cell devoted to overthrowing the Egyptian government and establishing an Islamist state. His cell eventually merged with others to form al-Jihad or Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Al-Zawahiri graduating from Cairo University in 1974, he served three years as a surgeon in the Egyptian Army then established a clinic near his parents and earned a master's degree in surgery in 1978.
Al- Zawahiri’s ambition was to recruit military officers and accumulate weapons, with the intent to launch "a complete overthrow of the existing Government. The plan was to kill the main leaders of the country, capture the headquarters of the army, State Security, the telephone exchange building, and of course the radio and television buildings, where news of the Islamic revolution would then be broadcast, unleashing a popular Islamic uprising against secular authority all over the country.
It was only by good fortune that the plan fell apart when authorities were alerted and President Anwar Sadat ordered the roundup of more than 1500 Islamic radicals mostly Muslim brotherhood members, including many Al-Jihad members. Al-Zawahiri was one of hundreds arrested following Sadat's assassination.
Had his plan succeeded, Egypt would not be the country it is today. Egypt would be another radical Islamist country mirroring Saudi Arabi and run by "self indulgent God like figures" in the muslim brotherhood and their hypocritical and obscene interpretation of Islam.
Al-Zawahiri is however seen as a coward by some in the muslim brotherhood, they recall how he revealed the hiding place of Essam Al-Qamari, a key member of the Maadi cell of al-Jihad whilst he was held in prison. Many view his treachery guaranteed him early release after serving only 3 years in detention, whilst many of his "Muslim Brothers" were executed. Within months of his release Al-Zawahiri fled Egypt, went to Saudi Arabia then travelled to Peshawar Pakistan where he eventually met Bin Laden.
It comes as no surprise that a Muslim Brotherhood member (whether current or not) is now the leader of the mother of terrorist organisations. Al-Zawahiri is "Sunni" muslim and fond supporter of Wahibbi islam as practiced in Saudi Arabia and promoted in egypt by the rapidly increasing Salafist movement.
There is growing speculation the Egyptian army has subversive links to Al-Qaida prompting them to release over 1600 Islamic radicals associated with the salafists. it is anticipated Al-Zawahiri will use the muslim brotherhood to strengthen his ties with radicals in his homeland and prevent a secular society emerging post the revolution.
One Muslim Brotherhood member speaking on assurance of anonymity informed us, "the spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood Yussief Al-Qaradawi has been in close and constant contact with Al-Zawahiri, they are close friends and their association goes back decades. If all goes well Al-Zawahiri may return to egypt just as Al-Qaradawi did after the fall of Mubarak. These men believe this is the time to bring their decades old plans of true Islamisation in Egypt, it has been a life long struggle for these men and it has cost the lives of many of their muslim brothers".
Why is it Islam, breeds so many delusional, delinquent, retarded mad men that think they are "Allah' and have a duty to kill all those opposed to their view of Islam.?
Least we Forget the words of the self declared prophet mohammed: "My ummah (muslim community) will be divided into 73 sects and 72 of those sects will be deceived (by Satan) and go to HELL".
Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar
Who dare challenge the words of the mighty prophet?
