Egyptian Officials Arrest 22 Terrorist Suspects Plotting To Kill Tourists

April 20, 2006 2:12 p.m. EST

Cairo, Egypt (AHN) - Egyptian officials report its security forces arrested twenty-two people in Cairo on Wednesday for suspicion of being members of an underground terrorist organization.

Sources at the Ministry of interior say the several months long investigation had security forces uncover a terrorist network, calling itself Al-Taefa Al-Mansour (The Victorious Sect) that was allegedly planning operations in Egypt.

Egyptian security forces say some of the 22 suspects captured included the organization's leader, Ahmad Mohammad Ali Gabr (alias -Abu Musaab) and his deputy Ahmad Mohammad Basyouni (alias - Abu Bakr Al Misri).

The group, which was seeking land in Giza for a training camp, was reportedly setting its sights on Moslem and Christian clerics, tourists, and gas pipelines around Greater Cairo.

Other targets were said to include Moslem and Christian clerics along with, what the organization is said to have described as, morally corrupt youth.

What exactly are you suggesting?

I'm in the mood for hearing a great half-baked conspiracy theory tonight.

Sinai has been attacked like 5 times in the last three years...of course they're expected and continue to expect. The Israelis always warned their citizens of a major attack before it happened and told them not to go to Egypt. But 10,000 Israelis always go there during the holidays (like now). They know something is gonna happen, but not when or where.

I read Israeli newspapers every day and I didn't see the kind of warning come out of Prime Minister's Office (Mossad) that was like the other ones. THAT is what's scary about this...they managed to get the attack off without being detected. Although Passover + Israeli Tourists + THe Sinai = automatic assumption of an attack.

The only thing they could have done was to remove the entire Beduin population from the Sinai. Some of those normally neutral beduin tribes have been recruited in the service of Jihadists. And since you can't tell which ones are friendly and which ones are terrorists--they have a very closed, private and actually top secret culture--it makes penetrating them very difficult.

I mean shit, just last year "someone" shot down an Egyptian Helicopter carrying the general and his staff that were in charge of cleaning up the area after the first major attack on tourist targets there. As one analyst pointed out, the Sinai has every conceivable freature to be an attractive target for Jihadists.
