Jihad Story of the Day – Sharia in Egypt

New jihad group says Morsi's ouster "a war declared against Islam in Egypt," vows violence to reimpose Islamic rule

Democracy? An infidel system! "Radical Islamist group threatens violence after Egypt Morsi overthrow," from Ahram Online, July 6:
A new Islamist group has announced its formation in Egypt, calling the army's ousting of Mohamed Morsi a declaration of war on its faith and threatening to use violence to impose Islamic law.

Ansar Al-Sharia in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training its members, in a statement posted on an online forum for militants in the country's Sinai region Friday and recorded by the SITE Monitoring Service.

The army's move, which was backed by mass rallies across Egypt, has raised fears Islamists could desert officially recognised groups like Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and move to more militant movements.

Morsi's exit has already triggered violence. At least 30 people died as Islamists took to the streets in Cairo and other cities Friday to vent their fury at what they say was a military coup.
