Vodafone and KFC on Egyptian Islamist’s new hit list – inspired by American Muslim convert

Egypt is facing a new campaign of violence, this time a series of attacks targeting western companies like KFC and Vodafone.

A series of bombings has killed at least three people and injured scores more in Cairo and Alexandria in recent weeks, separate from the intense jihadist violence being inflicted by Isil-backed terrorists against the police and military.

It seems in part inspired by an American Muslim convert with an anti-capitalist agenda, who posts texts online urging Egyptians to throw off a “neo-liberal” order in favour of Islam.

Shahid King Bolsen – born Shannon Morris – served time in Dubai for killing a German businessman, and hiding his body in a suit-case. Now he inspires young radicalised Egyptians with online calls for action – though he told The Telegraph he does not approve of violence.

  • Islamic jihadis only need a few devout believers to cause widespread social dysfunction.

    It only takes a few of these attacks on “Western” businesses to make patronizing the others a risk.

    And the jihadis win.

    Hiding a body in a suitcase? Must be one of the peaceful ones we keep hearing about.

    This is why there is no point for companies like KFC to appease Muslims by offering Halal because their will always be a few of them who won’t be satisfied by it and will only want complete eradication of the company for being western based.

    We should support Egypt, not Iraq.
