Then Egyptian intelligence chief Gen. Murad Muwafi had a personal meeting with a senior Iranian spy in August.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “U.S. intelligence agencies recently monitored a secret meeting between Egypt’s intelligence chief and a senior Iranian spy that is raising new fears the Muslim Brotherhood government in Cairo could begin covertly supporting global terrorism.”

The news has made the headlines because the Iranian spy was a senior official of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (mois). Officials who monitored the meeting refer to the spy only by his last name, Gerami. His name is not as important as that of his employer, mois.

The mois is well known for its brutality and connection to international terrorist activity. It has conducted aggressive intelligence operations, including assassinations, and is known to support terrorist groups in the Middle East, including al Qaeda, Hezbollah and Hamas. It is also backing the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria. Added to its repertoire of misdeeds is the organization’s support of anti-U.S. and anti-Israel operations.

The United States has recognized this and has imposed sanctions on the mois. “Today we have designated the mois for abusing the basic rights of Iranian citizens and exporting its vicious practices to support the Syrian regime’s abhorrent crackdown on its own population,” David Cohen, the U.S. Treasury’s under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said in a statement.

Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, and mois is the hand through which Iran carries out its terrorist activities. When we consider who was at the meeting with the mois, it becomes clear that this was no low-level meeting.

Maj. Gen. Murad Muwafi, the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service at the time, was the one who personally met with the spy. Since that time, Muwafi has been removed from office along with a number of high-ranking pro-Mubarak officials in the government.

While there is plenty of speculation on what was spoken about in the meeting, including information about the forthcoming attack in the Sinai, the key point to note is that the meeting took place back in August.

Morsi and the Brotherhood were in office at the time, but did not have the power that they have now. The military was still deemed a considerable opposition to the fledgling government. Yet so soon after coming into power, the government was already conducting secret meetings with the Iranians! Soon after those talks, the military reshuffle began, and the Brotherhood became what we see today. We see this new Egypt growing increasingly bold as it makes plain and visible steps toward a closer relationship with Iran.

The Trumpet has long stated that Egypt would become an ally of Iran. With last week’s revelation of secretive meetings between the two countries, we can wonder just how much groundwork had been laid behind closed doors to bring about this alliance. Once thing is certain: If Egypt is holding talks with mois, the terrorist arm of Iran, we must be ready for Egypt to take a more active role in terrorism itself. ... error-axis
