UnFreakingBelievable! Zawahiri's Brother Walks

A military court has found him not guilty of all charges relating the the murder of Anwar Sadat.


Mohamed Al-Zawahiri is a member of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, of which his brother was once a leader. The United States describes the group as a terrorist organization that merged with al Qaeda in 2001. Its "primary goals are to overthrow the Egyptian government and replace it with an Islamic state and attack U.S. and Israeli interest in Egypt and abroad," the U.S. State Department once said.

Five other Islamists charged with similar crimes were acquitted along with Al-Zawahiri, said Ghorab.

They are Abdel Aziz al-Jamal, Alaa Sarhan, Sayed Imam, Murgan Mustapha Salem and Mohamed Islamboli, the brother of the executed Islamist who killed Sadat, the attorney said.
