Abu ‘Ubaida, a leader of Ansar Bayt al-Muqadas, the most recent terrorist organization to plague post-Muslim Brotherhood Egypt, was killed yesterday by Egyptian forces.

According to Egyptian Maj. Gen. Muhammad Nour al-Din, ‘Ubaida was the regional director of the terrorist organization in Egypt, and was directly involved in the planning and implementation of all attacks in Cairo.

Speaking yesterday on the television program “Happening in Egypt,” which airs on MBC Egypt, Nour al-Din said that “Today’s killing of Abu ‘Ubaida counts as a major blow from the National Security Agency to the members of Bayt al-Muqadas.”

Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist, is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress. He is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center; Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow, Middle East Forum; and a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution, 2013. Ibrahim’s dual-background -- born and raised in the U.S. by Coptic Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East -- has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets, positioning him to explain the latter to the former.

Let's rejoice!

And, just because I'm in a good mood, I'll post "Yalla Ya Nasrallah".

(That one's hat-tip comes from a long time ago in a blog far, far away....)
