Jabhat an-Nusra li-Ahl Misr (communications 2 and 3) ~ Egypt

This is the second communication by Jabhat an-Nusra in Egypt …

This  statement was made by Abu Abdallah as-Swayfi, an alleged spokesman of Jabhat an-Nusra li Ahli Misr, regarding attacks on bearded youngsters in the provinces of Tanta and Mansoura:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

تصريح من أحد مسئولي جبهة النصرة لأهل مصر (أبو عبد الله السويفي) حول الاعتداءات على الشباب الملتحي في محافظة طنطا والمنصورة:

الحمد لله الكبير المتعال والصلاة والسلام على النبي محمد وصحبه وخير آل، وبعد:

فقد سمع الجميع عن حوادث الاعتداء على الشباب المسلم، فقط لأنه ملتح ومطبّق لسنة الحبيب صلى الله عليه وسلم.

فقد تم قطع أصابع شاب في محافظة المنصورة اسمه “عبد الرحمن أبو العطا”، وتم الاعتداء بالضرب المبرح على آخرين بمحافظة طنطا، هذا غير تكسير المحلات التجارية فقط لأنه مكتوب عليها “الشيخ”.

إن لم يكن هذا استهدافًا للدين ومظاهره وشعائره فماذا يكون؟ وما علاقة ذلك بالنزاع السياسي القائم في البلاد؟

قسمًا بالله ليكونن الرد موجعًا مؤلمًا
قسمًا بالله يا أهلنا لن نخذلكم
ونقول لمن يشكك في وجودنا:
الجواب ما ترى لا ما تسمع!

وليرينّ كلاب الكنيسة المسلحون الذين سيضرون عوام النصارى ومصالحهم بأفعالهم العدوانية، وكذلك البلطجية المأجورون، كيف سيكونون عبرة لكل من يعتبر، بحول الله وقوته.

ونبشركم -والله الذي لا إله إلا هو- أن بعض قيادات ومقاتلي الكتائب المقاتلة ضد بشار الطاغية قد جاءوا إلى مصر، منتظرين ما سيحدث في الأيام القادمة، حتى يحموا بيوت الله إذا تم الاعتداء عليها، وكي يذودوا عن النساء المسلمات والشباب المسلم الذين لا ناقة لهم فيما يحدث ولا جمل.

وقد أكدنا مرتين في بياننا الأول أننا لسنا تابعين لأي أحد، بما فيهم جبهة النصرة لأهل الشام (حفظهم الله ونصرهم).

وأكدنا أيضًا أننا لا نعترف بشرعية حاكم جاء وفق آليات ديمقراطية، ويحكم بنظام ديمقراطي، بما فيهم الدكتور مرسي.

كل ما يهمنا هو الدفاع عن المستضعفين وحماية حياض هذا الدين (رجاء مراجعة البيان الأول)

والله أكبر! والعزة لله ورسوله والمؤمنين.

وصلى الله وسلم على النبي الأمين، الذي أرسله الله رحمة للعالمين.

As before this second statement stresses that this group is completely independent of other groups like Jabhat an-Nusra in Syria; although some of the group’s members stem from the war against Bashar al-Assad.

They strive to defend Muslim youngsters from Christian dogs who attack Muslims just because they are bearded or have an Islamic appearance.

Further they – again – point out that the democratic government in Egypt led by Dr. Morsi has no legal grounds. Islam is the only system allowed to govern a Muslim state.

At the end of the statement they urge everyone to follow their Twitter-account as they expect that their Facebook-page will be closed down soon.


In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

An announcement of a commander of Jabhat an-Nusra in Egypt (Abu Abd-Allah Swaify) regarding the attack of some bearded young men in the Tanta and al-Mansoura provinces. 

Thanks to Allah the great, and peace and blessing be upon the prophet Muhammad

Many heard of the attacks against young Muslims, only because they were bearded and applying the rules of the traditions of the Prophet PBUH

They have cut of the fingers of one young man (“Abd ar-Rahman Abu al-Atta”) in al-Mansoura province  and they hit continuously others in Tanta, in addition they have broken shops only because the word “sheikh” was written on it. 

If this isn’t called the targeting of religion and its rituals then what is it called? And has this to do with the current political conflicts in the country?

We swear by Allah that our response will be hurtful

We swear by Allah that we won’t give up on our people

And we tell those who doubt our existence

The response will be what you see and not hear

The dogs of the church that are armed and will affect the rest of the Christians and their interests by their aggressive acts, as well as the assassins thugs, will be a lesson to other by Allah’s will.

We reassure you that some of the commanders and fighters of brigades that are fighting against Assad have arrived to Egypt waiting what will happened the coming days to protect the house of God in case it is attacked and to defend Muslim women and men who has nothing to do with all this. We have confirmed twice in our first statement that we don’t belong to Jabhat an-Nusra of Syria (may Allah protect them) and we also confirmed that we don’t believe in the legitimacy of a ruler who was elected through democracy and who rule according to democratic ways, including Morsi.

(All we care about is defending the weak and protect this religion). Please check the first announcement. Allahu Akbar, Glory be to Allah, his messenger and the believers.

Peace and blessing be upon his prophet
