In an ?urgent message? issued yesterday, October 16, 2005, the Mujahideen in Egypt expresses contempt about a play performed in a church in Moharrambey, Alexandria, which they claim ?desecrated and insulted? the prophet Mohammad, and summarily warns any ?pig priest who controls a church and makes a speech… [to] present himself as a sacrificial lamb within 72 hours?. According to the statement, the group approached the church where the play was acted and sought to destroy it; however, they were astonished to find the ?government dogs of the police, intelligence, and national security? surrounding the church.
The statement concludes with a stern proclamation: ?Let the world know that as long as they find somebody who opposes Allah?s religion in Egypt, the Mujahideen of Egypt are there waiting for them.?
