    Ayman al-Zawahiri. Who is Ayman al-Zawahiri? I guess you should learn a little bit about him. He's number two al-Qaida and more than likely will be number one now. Oh why did you support him?

    Al-Zawahiri is a physician and the founder of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ). This organization opposes the secular Egyptian Government and seeks its overthrow through violent means. In approximately 1998, the EIJ led by Al-Zawahiri merged with Al Qaeda.
    Now who would have said this about the man? The FBI

    FBI — AYMAN AL-ZAWAHIRI

    A lot of different people, groups, governments and individuals supported it and all the other movements currently happening in the Middle East and North Africa for a variety of reasons, it doesn't mean the eventual outcome will be in their favor. Hell this is old news.

    Al-Adel is thought to be affiliated with the Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), and is believed to be a high-ranking member of the Al-Qaeda organization.

    That's right and the British Foreign Office, our State Department, elements of Al Qaeda, The Russian Federation, etc, etc, etc. All with their own hopes and plans. The reality is the vast majority of what is going on (no so much in Egypt) is the continuing push/pull between the Sunnis and the Shias for power and wealth.
    The other aspect is the youth have had access to social networking via the internet and have seen aspects of our western secular society they want. They're making themselves heard so I wouldn't worry to much about it unless of course you want to use it for political hackery.

    some no matter what will call it political hackery so at this point and time it doesn't matter. All I am doing is sharing some information to those who might not have a clue.

    I thought they were protesting cause the word was out that King Tut was coming back to take over the country.
