The son of Omar Abdel Rahman, a Jamaa al-Islamiya leader known as the Blind Sheikh who was convicted of terrorism charges in the US in 1995, threatened to organize a protest at the US Embassy in Cairo and detain the employees inside.
Abdallah Abdel Rahmans threat came during a press conference organized by the sheikhs family near the highly fortified American embassy compound on Thursday evening.
Abdel Rahman demanded that President Mohamed Morsy intervene for the release of his father as he did in the case of Egyptian journalist Shaimaa Adel who was detained for nearly two weeks for covering protests in Sudan then flown back to Egypt on a plane with Morsy.

Just another Juma in the Arab Spring.
Egypts new president, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, met in Cairo today with Gazas prime minister, Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas the Muslim Brotherhoods Palestinian branch. As PJMs David Goldman observes, Morsi is getting ready to have the red-carpet rolled out for him by the Obama White House in September. He should definitely have the Hamas talking-points down by then since he also had a powwow with the terrorist organizations political bureau chief, Khaled el-Meshal, last week.
Morsi will also be ready to press on President Obama his demand for the release of the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman. Right after his election, he assured Egyptians that this was among his top priorities. On that score, too, the Brotherhood is rockin its familiar terror-leveraged moderate two-step. While Morsi works the diplomatic end, the Egypt Independent reports that Sheikhys son, Abdallah, has threatened to attack the American embassy and hold its employees hostage in order to extort pops release.
Abdel Rahman is the emir of the Islamic Group (Gamaat al-Islamia), a terrorist organization that is part of the Brotherhoods parliamentary coalition and whose members are also now welcomed guests at the Obama White House.
Time for the blind sheik to have one of those nifty heart attacks we’ve been perfecting. We can send him back after that.
Gee whiz, President Obama would have to make the hard decision to personally lead the rescue mission.
They could even make a movie, Orambo, and maybe get it out before the election.

Any attachment to the Muslim Brotherhood is exceedingly dangerous for the United States. Barack Obama’s openness to it in his planned meeting with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi should be setting off alarm bells throughout Congress and the American people. By the time we realize we have been sold down the river to these islamists, it may well be too late to turn back. They are viral, and once having infected the host, there may be no antibody to kill them with, which is what it will have come down to.
I feel your pain there,big fella!
You are an expert at reading between the lines.
Save a tomato!
The State Dept will soon give him a visa and he’ll get a White House invite to ask for the release of his daddy./sarc
No doubt just in time for the anniverary of 9/11.
It’s too bad we didn’t have any warning about these protests against the video.
