Muslim Brotherhood signs pact with al-Qaeda

This will do nothing to stop those who insist that the Muslim Brotherhood is “moderate.”

“Report: Muslim Brotherhood signs pact with al-Qaeda,” by Roi Kais for Ynet News, December 26:

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.
