In a statement released on Tuesday, "Al-Qaeda in Egypt," a hitherto unknown terrorist group has threatened to attack those people who take part in planned demonstrations against the Muslim Brotherhood Friday. The group warned all "secular crusaders" against the organization of events, saying they will not hesitate to use force to implement Sharia law in Egypt.
The rhetoric is in harmony with al-Zawahiri’s stated beliefs. He was heavily influenced by Sayyid Qutb’s writings. Could he be personally involved in this new “Al-Qaeda in Egypt”?
