Conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen in the Muslim world, and this is a fellow who has some motivation to make these claims, that said he’s an insider and is also citing Omar Suleiman, the former head of Egyptian intelligence, and one of the big men at the top.
Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood’s operation in Gaza, and it’s entirely plausible that the Brotherhood would have brought them in as reinforcements when things got bad. Their terrorists have the weapons training and very little concern about being held legally accountable for anything they did in Egypt.
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi gained release from prison during the Egyptian revolution because of his connections to Hamas and Hezbollah according to the lawyer of Hosni Mubarak.
According to the lawyer, the testimony of Omar Suleiman, who served as the head of Egyptian intelligence until being named as Hosni Mubarak’s Vice President during the revolution that ultimately toppled his government, indicated that Morsi was arrested during the protests due to suspicions that he was inciting against the government. In a military operation, members of al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, and activists affiliated with Hezbollah breached the prison where he was being held and he along with other senior officials were freed.
The lawyer also said Suleiman, who died under mysterious circumstances in July, claimed Hosni Mubarak was not responsible for the deaths of protestors during the country’s revolution, but rather it was militants from Hamas and Hezbollah.
According to the program, on January 28 militants from Hamas and Hezbollah infiltrated the Sinai with help from local Bedouins. They then joined Muslim Brotherhood activists who were at Tahrir Square.
In the interview, Mubarak’s lawyer was asked “You mean to tell me that the Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman stood before the court and said that whoever killed the protesters were members of Hamas and Hezbollah?” to which the lawyer replied, “Yes, everything was in cooperation and under the guidance of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
How true is this? There’s no way to know. Hezbollah’s participation is especially suspect. But it does raise some interesting questions.
