As was once Afghan today is Sinai?
Thanks to the DEBKAfile:
"Al Qaeda’s Sinai commander was Bin Laden’s former physician"
"21 July. For more than two and a half years, Dr. Ramzi Mowafi, once Osama bin Laden’s personal physician, has led Ansar al Jihad in the Sinai Peninsula,the most dangerous terrorist group in Sinai, in attacks on Egyptian military targets and rocket strikes against Israel. A charismatic figure and able operational commander, Mowafi has gathered a following of 7,000 to 9,000 armed men. Incoming intelligence showing Dr. Mowafi to be organizing a large group of Sinai terrorists for a major cross-border attack in Israel has kept IDF border units on high alert for the past two weeks.
One, two, three, MANY Afghan. The Salafist adept at taking advantage of a chaotic situation. Zawahiri too that Egyptian and NOW the #1 man in charge of Al Qaeda!
That charismatic leader [Dr. Ramzi] rallying the jihadists following the death of Bin Laden, much in the manner of what recently transpired in Mali.
This group of Ansar [helper] devoted to creating a no-go zone for central government forces of Egypt, that safe-haven from which jihadi can be trained and dispatched to wreak havoc the world-over! This I surmise is the intent. The SANCTUARY from which operations can be mounted.
Attacks on the multi-national peacekeeping United Nations force in the Sinai not reported? At least not to my knowledge. That particular MNF if not already besieged having made proper preparations, if indeed the bad turns to worse. I might hope so!
