Example text

The authorities discovered that he had led the cell and that he was responsible for the cultural side, which meant that he taught the members the ideological and Islamic framework that they should use in performing takfir [the declaration of a regime as infidel]. His criteria for judging political leadership were disseminated undercover between the members. 5 Members of Zawahiri’s group Sayyid Imam ‘Abdel ‘Azeez, later known as Dr. Fadl or ‘Abdel Qader ‘Abdel ‘Azeez when he moved to Afghanistan, was a close confidant of Zawahiri.

While I was in prison, I noticed that Qamari was very strong. He controlled the jihadi elements, including Zawahiri himself. 25 Qamari’s voice was the loudest, wholeheartedly opposing ‘Abdel Rahman’s leadership on account of his poor eyesight. This issue led eventually to the demise of the coalition between the various jihadi groups under the leadership of Farag and the Gama‘a al-Islamiyya. Qamari was a courageous man who did not fear anyone in his struggle to follow the path of God, even to the extent of rashness.

He was happy to discuss any issue that was difficult for him to understand until it was made clear, but he did not argue for the sake of argument. He always listened politely, without giving anyone the chance to control him. Despite his strong opinions, he has always been humble, never interested in seizing the limelight of leadership. For instance, although the period when he was studying at Cairo University was a time of great political activity in Egyptian universities, he did not run as a candidate for any of the student union elections throughout his academic career.
