May 3, 2012 Egypt: Ayman Zawahiri's Brother Leads Jihadi Protest Against Military According to Egypts Al Ahram, Major Egyptian Islamist parties and groupsincluding the Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafist Calling and Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiyahave issued calls for a Tahrir Square demonstration on Friday under the banner of Saving the revolution. Several non-Islamist revolutionary groups, meanwhile, have expressed their refusal to participate in the event. These groups include the United Maspero Youth, the Egyptian Brothers Independent group, and the Free Front for Peaceful Change. To appreciate this dichotomywhat Islamists are all about and why secularists want no part in Fridays marchconsider the sort of characters spearheading tomorrow's mass protests: among them is none other than Muhammad al-Zawahiri, the elder brother of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, and a seasoned terrorist in his own right. According to Youm 7, Zawahiri appeared yesterday at the head of hundreds of protesters, including dozens of jihadis, demonstrating in front of Egypts Military Council near Cairo. They waved banners that read, We are a people who do not give inVictory or Death!, chanted Jihad! Jihad! The [Military] Council must leave, all punctuated with cries of Islams primordial war-cry, Allahu Akbar! Sheikh Muhammad Zawahiri also confirmed that his followers of the notorious al-Gama al-Islamiyathe Islamic Group, a terrorist organization famous for the 1997 Luxor Massacre, killing over 60 touristsare going to be participating in this Fridays million man march, stressing that they will not relent until the Military Council hands over all power.
