REPORT: MORSI TO SMUGGLE AL-QAEDA’S ZAWAHIRI INTO EGYPT
#1
Quote:According to a new report from the Arabic-language website Misr al-Gidida [translated for this story by the author], during Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi’s recent visit to Islamabad, Pakistan, he secretly met with Ayman Zawahiri, the leader of the terrorist organization al-Qaeda, and promised to smuggle the Egyptian-born jihadi back home. The Arabic report cites a Pakistani source saying that the meeting was clandestinely arranged, away from the delegation accompanying Morsi, and “facilitated by elements of Pakistani intelligence (ISI) and influential members of the international organization, the Muslim brotherhood.”

Morsi himself is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood; Zawahiri is a former member who grew impatient with the Brotherhood’s tactics of non-violent patience and perseverance, eventually quitting the organization and joining the jihad, becoming its current leader. (See “Ayman Zawahiri and Egypt: A Trip through Time” for an expose on Zawahiri and his decades-long connections to Egypt, the Salafis, and the Muslim Brotherhood.)

The Pakistani source adds that “the meeting lasted 45 minutes, during which Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi promised to make preparations for Ayman Zawahiri to return soon to Egypt, indicating that some Muslim Brotherhood members would handle the operation, by first smuggling the al-Qaeda leader to a Gulf nation, likely Qatar, and then easily transferring him to Egypt—on condition that Zawahiri disappear lest he embarrass Egypt’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood with its American ally, whose security and intelligence agencies consider Zawahiri most wanted.”

Although this report cannot be independently verified, any number of indicators support its veracity. Among other things, the ever-vocal Salafi faction of Egypt, which all but venerates al-Qaeda, have been incessantly calling for Egypt’s native son Zawahiri—the “hero” who gave America a bloody nose via the strikes of 9/11—to return. Aboud al-Zomor, for instance, the Egyptian jihadi who was implicated for the assassination of Sadat but released after the ousting of Hosni Mubarak and who is now a leading member of the new Egyptian parliament—has called for the return of Zawahiri to Egypt, “with his head held high and in safety.”

Muslim Brotherhood leader President Morsi himself—who was also imprisoned and released during the “Arab Spring”—has already released any number of other jihadis, including some who were on death row in Egypt for the deaths and terrorism they committed. He is also trying to release the “Blind Sheikh”—an early mentor turned competitor of Zawahiri—from the U.S where he is currently serving a life sentence for his connection to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.

The report further suggests that Zawahiri will likely disappear in the increasingly lawless Sinai, where al-Qaeda is already active under the leadership of Zawahiri’s brother, Muhammad Zawahiri—another jihadi who was imprisoned under Mubarak only to be released under Morsi. Interestingly, when asked in a recent interview with CNN if he is in touch with his al-Qaeda leader brother, Muhammad only smiled and responded, “of course not.” In retrospect, it appears the smile was based on the sheer naivety of the question.

I find this one hard to believe, if it is true Obama won't be able to bullshit himself out of this one.

I think Morsi isn't this stupid. He's not got a firm handle as it is on Egypt. Let this occur and even Obama would have to squeeze Egypt financially and militarily.

That he is lobbying for the Blind Sheik release shows that he is either that stupid or that obnoxious.

and incidentally I have not yet seen either MSM (yes, reported, but not emphasized) or anyone in Congress making an issue over this.

I really think Beck is correct, when he stated today that both parties are complicit in all this. If so, and I tend to believe it, this is why none of this tends to raise any waves.

You know, I am definitely not a conspiracy person, but the more time goes by the more I am becoming convinced that a great deal of this is contrived, in part, by the Ruling Class.

No wonder people are thinking up all sorts of crazy things.

Who are the Ruling Class?

The movers and shakers in DC, and perhaps New York, who run both parties, the government, the media, and all the insiders who head the power structure. Almost all are unelected officials, who consider them superiour to the rest of us. We have a thread on this. Its where Useful Idiots, such as myself, discussed getting rid of the ruling elites, myself radically.

Here's the book about it all: The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It.

Lobbying for the sheik isn't the same as smuggling Zawahiri, come on MV.

Israel lobbies for what's his name( the guy who worked for them and us and got caught years ago), I expect them to. I don't expect them to bust him out of jail though.

Pollard, I believe.

Hmm... what is the difference? The Sheik was convicted, Zawahiri was not S6

Incidentally, the 2nd Zawahiri seems to be a major player in today's Egypt... put Zawahiri into Google and you will see some stories.

MV,

I have no doubt Morsi agrees with Zawahiri, but, slipping him into Egypt would stop our relationship asap I think. Morsi would have to be willing to chance that for Zawahiri.

John,

Pollard, that's the guy. I've always wondered about him. I used to assume he was just helping Israel, but, it seems he was into more than just that, a little psycho actually:

Absolutely not. The assumption that Zawahiri needs to be slipped in is already faulty: Sinai LEEKS. Morsi will have all the denyability he needs... heck, he would probably request that regular Egyptian army has full freedom of maneuver in Sinai (this is against the peace treaty) to catch Zawahiri and the One will support him too!

@pollard: from your link:
Quote:New Republic editor (and vocal supporter of Israel) Martin Peretz has argued against freeing Pollard, writing that "Jonathan Pollard is not a Jewish martyr. He is a convicted espionage agent who spied on his country for both Israel and Pakistan (!) – a spy, moreover, who got paid for his work.

there were rumors that he was also working for China and/or Russia. Pakistan is something new and original...

the problem is that we don't know if this is any true; it may also be a gummint effort to malign him.
