Comments on: New Islamic State franchise threatens Egypt Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: RanaSahib Thu, 18 Feb 2016 06:50:18 +0000 Sisi offers nothing but perpetual misery. Anyone’s platform or agenda can find traction in this kind of mess. Maybe Egypt should start building a pyramid for Sisi. This will at least provide employment to the youth.

At first I thought they may be mistaking Misr with Ajnad Misr due some similarities between the groups. Still I would like to see some more substantive proof that this is its own group and not just an outgrowth of Wilayat Sinai (After all that group has claimed responsibility for many of these same attacks). Finally these two analysts should do better research. The Kingdom of Jordan has no abolished the Muslim Brotherhood and the group continues to operate a political party (the Islamic Action Front) in the Hashemite Kingdom.

By: pharoah Tue, 16 Feb 2016 10:05:35 +0000 While agreeing that Islamist fundamentalists of various combinations continue to pose a threat to Egypt’s stability; I hasten to disagree categorically with their recommendation to resurrect any part of the Muslim Brotherhood. This organization will always strive for violent upheaval. It is a fallacy to trust those of them who profess nonviolence. They are either dissimulating or at best ousted quickly by advocates of its true philosophy.
Please read their manifesto and their leader Sayed Qutb’s writings which are still the organization’s guide and credo.
The means for suppressing the terrorist groups while cooperating in some manner with moderate Islamists is in any case already underway through positive interactions with Al Azhar- Islam’s biggest university and seat of Muslim thought and dogma; and who have control over thousands of mosques country wide.
No additional accommodation is required.
Certainly the frequency of attacks minor and major is taxing the security forces and Egypt’s population as a whole.
What is really needed is recognition by the U.S, Europe and Russia that waiting until stable countries like Egypt, Jordan and Israel are under threat by Muslim terrorists regardless of their affiliation bodes ill for the civilized world as a whole.
Egypt in particular is under severe economical pressure and MUST be supported. Because of its burgeoning population and the impact of events of recent years on its economy Egyptians are suffering.
Easing of the economic straits will encourage the public to work in harmony with the country’s security forces and army to quell these menacing waves of terrorism.
This in turn will help in the destruction of Islamists terrorists worldwide.
