The war of words after Israel's incursion into Gaza is heating up. Jihadi cleric Abu hareth Al-Maqdisi threatening Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, vowing that his time is coming soon.
"You won't sit for long in your position, because what happened to [former Egyptian president Hosni] Mubarak and [former Egyptian president Anwar] Sadat will happen to you as well," Magdisi said.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "You won't sit for long in your position, because what happened to [former Egyptian president Hosni] Mubarak and [former Egyptian president Anwar] Sadat will happen to you as well," Magdisi said. The remark referred to Mubarak's stepping down from the presidency following protests in 2011 and to Sadat's assassination in 1981.
Maqdisi, as his name suggests, is Palestinian origin. He made his comments while in Syria.

"Oh our brothers in Gaza, know that you are fighting an enemy following Satan's path, whereas you are fighting in the way of [Allah] the merciful," Maqdisi declared, adding that he and his fighters want to join the fighting in Gaza.
"True, we are fighting in Syria, but our heart yearns to arrive and fight the sons and brothers of the apes and pigs [the Jews]," MEMRI reported Maqdisi as saying.
Maqdisi also said that Gazans must be patient and wait for either victory or martyrdom. Allah, he said, will soon send "extraordinary soldiers who will fight and defeat the Jews.
"The days of defeats have passed. Our concept today is offensive and therefore you must attack them [the Jews] so they won't attack you, hold on, fortify yourself and trust in Allah so you may succeed," Maqdisi said.
Calling on Muslims to help the struggle in Gaza, he said, "If you help them, Allah will help you, if you abandon them, Allah will abandon you. The choice is yours because on Judgment Day they will ask you did you help the Gazans or the men of al-Sham or not."
According to a report published by the Middle East Media Research Institute Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor, the video also features Sisi's killing of Muslims in Egypt is part of a Zionist-Crusader plot against the Gazans.
"The general impression is that Al-Fawaris is close to the Islamic State, inter alia due to its use of the flag identified with the Islamic State, and due to the shared concept of shattering the Sykes-Picot boundaries that is advertised in the notice announcing the establishment of this media body," the report said.
"The Al-Fawaris Institute for Information Productions will focus on the affairs of the Muslims in al-Sham [Greater Syria], because al-Sham is not what the apostates delineated [in terms of its boundaries]. Al-Sham is as it was in ancient times. From the Euphrates in Iraq to El-Arish in Egypt," according to a post that appeared on Twitter with the establishment of the organization.
