Al Qaeda #2 Al Zawahiri has stated in a tape today that a Egyptian based group, militant group Al-Jamaa Islamiya, has joined their terror organization. The leader is conspired in the man who assassination of Anwar Sadat. This was not the best news for Egypt:

In September 2003 Egypt freed more than 1,000 members of the group because of the group’s stated “commitment to rejecting violence,” then-Interior Minister Habib el-Adli told Al-Jazeera at the time. Egypt released another 900 members of the group, including founder Najeh Ibrahim, in April 2006.

Among those set free in 2003 was the group’s leader, Karam Zuhdi, who expressed regret for conspiring with Egyptian Islamic Jihad in the 1981 assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.

Al Qaeda also vowed to take back Fallujah from Iraqi and Allied forces in recent postings at Iraqi mosques.

And, a Saudi cleric, who had inspired Bin Laden, issued a fatwa against Hezbollah, yesterday.
