Egypt: Al Qaeda terror leader Ayman al-Zawahri tells Muslims to stop attacking Christians, overthrow the government

Al Qaeda terror leader Ayman al-Zawahri says that Muslims in Egypt should not fight the nation’s Christians, but rather focus on overthrowing the government.

Ayman-Al-Zawahiri-YouTube screenshotZawahiri made the comments in an audio message posted on jihadi websites, the Associated Press reported, which noted that it was “a rare call … in defense of Christians.”

The ousting of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi from his President post last summer sparked increased violence against Christians. The Coptic church leadership voiced support for the coup against Morsi, and many Christians joined the millions who demonstrated against him.

Zawahiri now says that it is not in Muslims’ interest to deal with the Christians, because “we have to be busy confronting the Americanized coup of [Gen. Abdel-Fattah] el-Sisi and establish an Islamic government instead.”

He railed against el-Sissi with particularly strong language, describing him as the same as the military strongmen who have led Egypt over the past 60 years.

“He is a mercenary, an Americanized puppet, an impostor, treacherous and sinful with a history of bootlicking,” al-Zawahri said.

He also lashed out at Morsi, saying he had cooperated with secular Egyptians and surrendered to the Americans by acknowledging agreements with them and Israel. He said this was the reason for Morsi’s downfall.

Al-Zawahri urged the people of the Sinai Peninsula to support Palestinians in the neighboring Gaza Strip and help break “the siege imposed by el-Sissi.”

Regarding Syria, he said: “America got what it wanted — to secure Israel from Assad’s chemical weapons in exchange for turning a blind eye to his crimes.”
