This will do nothing to stop those who insist that the Muslim Brotherhood is “moderate.” But open Brotherhood supporters in the U.S. such as DHS adviser Mohamed Elibiary should be asked about it. They won’t be, however. “Report: Muslim Brotherhood signs pact with al-Qaeda,” by Roi Kais for Ynet News, December 26 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood movement has signed a pact with the al-Qaeda-affiliated radical Salafi organization Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which claimed responsibility last week for a terror attack in the city of Mansoura, security sources told the London-based Arabic-language al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper.
According to the sources, the Muslim Brotherhood has an alliance with another al-Qaeda-affiliated organization. Meanwhile, senior Muslim Brotherhood member Ibrahim Al-Sayed said the Egyptian government’s decision to declare the movement a terror organization was meaningless and would not harm the movement.
