Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Jihadists Order Non-Egyptians to Leave

An Islamist organization has warned all non-Egyptians to leave the country by the end of the month or become targets of jihad, according to a warning recently posted online by a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated site.

The Washington Free Beacon reported
that the order was issued by a group calling itself the Revolutionary Punishment Movement.

It declares that "all foreign nationals," "all embassy foreigners, diplomats and ambassadors," and "all foreign companies" must leave the country by the end of February or face violence, according to an independent translation provided to the Free Beacon.

Late last week, the threat was published on a Facebook page affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and was read to viewers on a television station in Turkey that was affiliated with the group, the Free Beacon reported.

The Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups do not recognize President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi as Egypt's legitimate leader. They want him ousted in favor of Brotherhood-linked President Mohammed Morsi, who el-Sisi drove from power in July 2013 after millions of Egyptians massed in the streets demanding his ouster.

"All countries supporting the coup and assisting it monetarily and politically must immediately cease from any support to the coup within a month from this statement otherwise all their interests in the Middle East will be exposed to severe attacks that will have dire consequences," the Youth of the Revolution — another Brotherhood-linked group — warned late last week.

The latest report of Brotherhood-linked threats come just days after representatives of that organization were hosted for a meeting by the State Department and called for a jihad against the Sisi government.

The news also comes just days after ISIS-linked jihadists staged a bloody series of coordinated attacks which killed at least 30 Egyptian soldiers and police in the northern Sinai Peninsula.

The leading terror group operating there, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, pledged allegiance to ISIS in November.

The attack prompted a fierce response from Sisi, who vowed the army would no longer hold back and promised a "hard and hellish" battle.

Hundreds of Egyptian security officers have been killed
by Sinai-based Islamic militants in the 19 months since Morsi's ouster as president.
