Good news coming out of Egypt. The vicious jihadist Mohammed Al-Zawahri, brother of al qaeda leader and leader of the ultra-supremacist Salafist group, was allied with Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi, whose supporters are now violently taking to the streets, slaughtering Christians, destroying churches, attacking police and soldiers, and inciting to civil war.
The one critical consequence of the bloody jihad in Egypt is that the Muslim Brotherhood is being exposed to the American people (and the free world) for who and what they really are. And their proxies in the United States, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA et al, are being outed as well. The brother of a CAIR leader died fighting alongside the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The enemedia is keeping that one on the down low.
Is Obama still backing the bloody supremacist Muslim Brotherhood?

Arrest: Mohammed al-Zawahri the veteran terrorist leader of al-Qaeda has been arrested according to Egyptian security forces
The brother of a Ayman al-Zawahri, the veteran terrorist leader of al-Qaeda has been arrested according to Egyptian security forces.
A security official said that Mohammed al-Zawahri, leader of the ultraconservative Jihadi Salafist group, was detained at a checkpoint in Giza, the city across the Nile from Cairo.
Ayman al-Zawahri is credited by many as having been the 'operational brains' behind the 9/11 suicide attacks on the U.S. and to have approved the co-ordinated bombings on London’s transport system in in 2005 that left 52 innocent people dead.
Mohammed Al-Zawahri's group espouses a hard-line ideology but was not clandestine prior to Egypt's July 3 coup.
He was allied with ousted President Mohammed Morsi, an Islamist, whose supporters are now taking to the streets to protest the killings of its supporters in a security crackdown last week.
Authorities said earlier that al-Zawahri had commanded insurgents in Sinai Peninsula.
For years second only to Bin Laden on the 'most wanted' lists of terrorists released by the US in 2001, he has a £15-million bounty on his head and five years ago survived a missile strike aimed at killing him.
He was born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1951 to a prominent family, his father a professor of pharmacology and his grandfather the grand imam of the highly influential Al Azhar mosque.
Zawahiri is said to be the brains behind the Al Qaeda network with analysts describing him as Al Qaeda's chief organiser and Bin Laden's closest mentor.
He has at times appeared the terrorist groups's most public face, often appearing in videos denouncing the West.
The terror chief is notorious in Egypt after being sentenced to death in absentia by an Egyptian military court in 1999.
He has also been indicted in connection with the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
Zawahri has repeatedly called for al Qaeda to seize control of a state, an elusive goal for the group.
He wrote in his 2001 essay Knights Under The Prophet's Banner: 'If we do not achieve this goal, our actions will be nothing more than small scale harassment.'
It is believed Zawahiri turned his back on his boss following a prolonged power struggle to lead the group.
