Who is Murad Muwafi?: “Liberated” Egypt’s Top Spy in Syria to Re-Unite HAMAS

By Debbie Schlussel

Israeli and American intelligence just got gifted to Syria, the host state to HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and every other Islamic terrorist group you can think of.  And it was Egypt–yup, newly “liberated” Egypt–that was doing the gifting to the barbaric Assads.  After years of silence with Syria, Egypt sent its top spy, Murad Muwafi, to the Alawite-run dictatorship to “share” . . . share everything the U.S. and Israel told Egypt. Oh, and he’s also there to help HAMAS re-unite with Fatah for a greater HAMAS takeover of all of the Palestinian “territories” that are really Israel. Yes, Muwafi didn’t travel to Syria to share his latest shish tawook recipe.


Egypt’s Top Spy, Murad Muwafi, Re-Unites Egypt w/ Syria, HAMAS

It’s a chilling development, but not one unexpected unless you are Lara Logan, Anderson Cooper, Richard Engel, Christiane Amanpour or any of the thousands of other morons who told us Egypt was being “liberated” from pro-U.S. Mubarak to pro-Islamic savagery and extremism.  And it’s gone completely unnoticed.  Only one major publication took notice and the story was largely ignored.

When Egypt’s new intelligence chief quietly flew to Syria’s capital for a day of meetings last month, his American counterparts took note.

What was Murad Muwafi, the new Egyptian spymaster, doing in Damascus? With whom was he meeting? “Honestly, we have our ideas, but we don’t know anything for certain,” said a senior U.S. defense official, who didn’t elaborate on what those ideas might be. “I wouldn’t say we’re worried—not yet. Concerned is probably a better word.”

PUH-LEEZE. They’re very worried. They know he’s gonna spill years of American intelligence. Let’s hope Muwafi doesn’t have the names of American and Israeli informants. He definitely has a lot of valuable intelligence that he’s ready to spill. If they’re at such a point of absurdity that they’re nitpicking the words “worried” v. “concerned,” they are sweating bullets over this.

Ties between U.S. and Egyptian intelligence have been the cornerstone of America’s clandestine operations in the region, and they were largely based around a single man, Omar Suleiman.

From 1993 until January, at the outset of protests that would force him and former President Hosni Mubarak out, he was the chief of Egypt’s General Intelligence Directorate.

Before his departure, Mr. Suleiman kept a lid on the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement and regularly dined with top U.S. officials, advising them on some of their thorniest foreign-policy dilemmas: how to check Iran’s influence or curb the power of Hamas, for example. Through Mr. Suleiman, Egypt became in 1995 the first country to cooperate with the U.S. program of rendition—sending terrorism suspects to third countries where they faced questioning and, in many cases, torture.

Look for all of that information to come out and to be used against CIA agents and non-American parties who aided America in Egypt and throughout the Middle East. This is going to be a disaster. It is a disaster. And we will probably never hear about the many people who are exposed and killed as a result of this. If for this reason alone, America should have backed Hosni Mubarak and given him the green light to put down the “revolution.” Now it is too late. And there is no forgiving the cheerleaders of it all, including Ms. Logan who was sexually assaulted by these great “democrats.”

U.S. officials say their new contact, 61-year-old Mr. Muwafi, is more circumspect in his relationship with them.

Translation: he’s ignoring them and doing as he pleases with U.S. and Israeli intelligence.

“Egypt has gone through a major hiccup, so clearly we’re dealing with evolving and emerging new personnel and personalities,” said a second U.S. official. “Omar Suleiman had a very deep and personal connection to President Mubarak, and we don’t know how the next” intelligence chief will play out.

Translation: We’re screwed.

U.S. officials said Mr. Muwafi was one of the people the Washington contacted after Egyptian authorities released the brother of al Qaeda’s fugitive deputy leader, Ayman Al Zawahiri, amid a broader release of political prisoners after Mr. Mubarak’s fall. The brother, Muhammad al Zawahiri, is a prominent Islamist in his own right, and U.S. officials said they were concerned his release was a sign Egypt was shifting toward a softer line on extremists. Muhammad al Zawahiri was re-arrested within days.

So he re-imprisoned one major Islamic terrorist while releasing thousands of others who will do his bidding. Big deal.

Authorities here now say they plan is to retry Mr. al Zawahiri for his alleged role in the 1981 assassination of late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, a crime for which he was originally sentenced to death in 1999, although the sentence was never carried out.

Uh, yeah, don’t bet on it.

Neither Mr. Muwafi nor Egypt’s intelligence service, which has no spokesman, could be reached for comment on Mr. Zawahiri’s case or the general thrust of Egyptian intelligence in the post-Mubarak era.

You don’t say. He’s too busy laughing all the way to paradise.

Mr. Muwafi and others “have a vision for what the relationship [with the U.S.] should look like after the revolution,” said Mohammed Ali Bilal, a retired army general who worked closely with Mr. Muwafi. “This is a new era and they should consider the interests of Egypt.”

Translation: let’s kill all the Jews and f— up the Americans. The brothers in jihad throughout the world will soon be re-united.

Mr. Muwafi’s March 18 trip to Syria appears to be an indication of Egypt’s changing priorities. Senior Egyptian officials, including Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby, have said in recent weeks they want to repair their country’s relationship with Syria, and the timing of Mr. Muwafi’s visit coincided with an Egyptian push to restart the Palestinian reconciliation process.

YAY, “liberated” Egypt and the man with all the Israeli and U.S. intel is part of the HAMAS-Fatah reunification process. Awesome.

Much of Hamas’ senior leadership lives in Damascus. Meeting with them could have been the main goal of the visit, U.S. officials said. “I think if we knew more, we’d feel better about it,” said the senior U.S. defense official.

Hey, the guy we gave all our intel to is now giving it to HAMAS, but if we only knew more we’d feel better about him giving it to HAMAS. So much better.

Israeli officials, who also maintained relatively close ties with Mr. Suleiman, were far less sanguine, analysts said.

Gee, I wonder why.

By the way, before he became the top Egyptian spy, Muwafi was governor of Egypt’s North Sinai province, which means he also has a lot of important information regarding Israel’s border security in that neighborhood–information that is now in Syrian and HAMAS hands.  If another Arab nations vs. Israel war breaks out–and odds are that it will, sooner or later, given the unstable “liberation” of the Arab world–they’ve already laid the ground work.

It’ll be a lot more bloody than 1948 or 1967.  A lot more.

Look for Camp David to be Camp Donewith, real soon.

The intrigue of foreign affairs is never ending, who is on the hit list this time Iran our two eastern Nations with unsettled views!,

Arthur Ronald Thompson on April 4, 2011 at 4:43 pm

I think Syria is the location, but the meetings will be with Iranians.

I_AM_ME on April 4, 2011 at 4:46 pm

” If another Arab nations vs. Israel war breaks out”

More like “when” not “if”

Israel should just go ahead and attack now

ebayer on April 4, 2011 at 5:00 pm

Agreed. Its a just a matter of time before the defunct Israel-Egypt peace treaty is formally scrapped.

Let’s hope Jerusalem is prepared for the new era that’s coming.

It won’t be one of light and sweet tidings for the Jewish State – while Israel has demagogues like Haifa U’s Arnon Sofer warning us Israel will be “too Jewish” by 2030.

Puhleeaze. The future is here right now.

Yes, President Obama’s new friends are not quite what the old ones were.

worry01 on April 4, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Yeah, from the dishy Steven Hayes of the Weekly Standard to Bill Krystol and the pretty piece of dry toast Dana Perrino…EGYPT ROCKS!

All three, seasoned as they are, believed that ousting Mubarak was gonna be so grrrrrreat for democracy.

Givin’ it all away….

Many old testament prophecies have not yet been fulfilled. One that has yet to occur is Isaiah 17. What do the Jews say about this scripture?
I think that what is happening in the middle east is a reflextion of the time in which we are living. Do you think that Obama would not give any of this information directly to Hamas? His war in Lybia is just a warm up for the UN invading Israel.
He is hates Israel almost as much as he hates America.
May God save them both.

“ Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.

The missing piece of this puzzle will be if Samantha Power becomes Secretary of State. The Islamists have nothing, short term, unless they have someone in the Obama Administration that has no scruples about killing Jews and destroying Israel under the guise of genocide and apartheid. Libya is her test case to “work out the wrinkles” about armed intervention in Israel by NATO (USA).

We are looking at EVIL up close. These are the enemies of civilization.

Doc Holiday on April 5, 2011 at 10:36 am

    Doc, I wonder why Samantha Power is so anti-Israel when she is suppose to be such an authority on genocide. She wrote a book on it and is married to a Jew. One would think because of her hatred of genocide, that she would sympathize with Jews and Israel.

    (Of course I know Liberalism is all about contrarianism, and they generate the opposite of their stated intent ALWAYS but I guess I am just confounded at how openly hypocritical they are.
    I wonder if I just answered my own question…).

    Anyway, their hubris gets me everytime.

    Skunky on April 5, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Since the US won’t do it, the Israeli’s should have him assassinated, and make it look like it’s the job of either the Muslim Brotherhood or Hizbullah

Infidel Pride on April 5, 2011 at 10:57 am

I continue to believe that the U.S. needs to beef up its peacekeeping forces in the Sinai. The U.S. signed the Egypt-Israel peace treaty as a guarantor. It’s time for the U.S. to send the message to Egypt’s “politicians” that we are serious about keeping the Sinai demilitarized and free of weapons flow.

I know! Don’t hold your breath.

Doh, faceplant, US Intelligence sometimes seems like an oxymoron.
