New Terror Axis? Egypt-Iran Intelligence Meeting Prompts Fears That Muslim Brotherhood Will Begin Supporting Global Terror


By Bill Gertz – “U.S. intelligence agencies recently monitored a secret meeting between Egypt’s intelligence chief and a senior Iranian spy that is raising new fears the Muslim Brotherhood government in Cairo could begin covertly supporting global terrorism.

According to U.S. officials, the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service, Maj. Gen. Murad Muwafi, met in early August with a senior official of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

Disclosure of the Egyptian-Iranian intelligence meeting comes as the Obama administration is planning to provide $1 billion in aid to bail out Egypt’s new Islamist government. The administration is said to be seeking closer ties to the new regime in Cairo, following the ouster in February 2011 of long-time ally Hosni Mubarak.

Many members of the pro-democratic, anti-Muslim Brotherhood opposition in Egypt believe the Obama administration has made a covert pact to support the Morsi regime.

Meanwhile in Cairo, Islamic protesters on Tuesday stormed the U.S. Embassy and pulled down the American flag to protest what they said was a U.S. film production the protesters claimed insulted Islam.

U.S. intelligence gathering targeting Egypt has been stepped up over the past year as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist party, came to power in June. The group’s credo includes the phrase, ‘Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.’

Since the revolution that led to the ouster of the pro-U.S. regime of Hosni Mubarak, a large number of radical Islamists have been released from prison and have gone back to preaching anti-Western and anti-Israel jihad, or holy war.

The meeting between Muwafi and the Iranian, identified by officials only with his last name, Gerami, set off security concerns because the Iranian spy service is a key player in Tehran’s international support for terrorism, as well as anti-U.S. and anti-Israel operations.” Read more.

Flashback: Senior Muslim Brotherhood Member Praises Shiite Leaders Of Iran (Video) – “This is a great stride towards Islamic unity in light of the events unfolding in the world. These are changes under Islam and in line with unity in the Islamic world and also aimed at ending the global arrogance led by the U.S…  the Islamic Republic of Iran … truly serves as a model of resistance against the West’s domination and serves as a model for the Muslim world … the number one figure in the Muslim world is indeed the leader of Iran … I am proud of President Ahmadinejad … I hope Iran is the model in all aspects, including justice, unity among Shi’a and Sunni, human rights, and respect for humanity.”

    This is the $64,000 Question in the Libya Attack, and no one has asked it. The Libyans’ new gov’t is much more Pro-US than Egypt’s new government, and the “video” stuff started with a pre-emptive apology from the U.S. Embassy in Egypt before anything even started in either Egypt or Libya. The Egyptian Brotherhood were also out waving that story about the video, which of course no one has even seen. I want to know what they Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, possibly coordinating with Iran whose Ayatollahs have a big thing about attacking Embassies, knew or did in the Libya attack and when the U.S. State Department, or more properly the Administration, knew about it. This is the big question no one is asking right now.
