Al-Qaeda-linked Nidal Sakr relives his Arab Spring days, here in America.

Nidal Sakr, a Muslim Brotherhood operative residing in Huntington Beach, California, has joined the protests being conducted in his local area calling for justice for George Floyd, a black male who died while being detained by Minneapolis, Minnesota police. A number of these protests have led to attacks on police officers. This seems to be to Sakr’s liking, as he has declared war on the police, calling the police “the enemy” and “terrorists.” He has also called President Trump a terrorist. Yet, Sakr himself was actually part of a terrorist cell, recruited by a founder of al-Qaeda, and he is wanted for the murder of a police officer. Where is the protest against Sakr?
After being born in Providence, Rhode Island, Nidal Mohamed Sakr spent his teenage years living in different countries in the Middle East. As a youth in the 1970s, Sakr was recruited into a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist cell operating out of Jordan and carrying out attacks against Israel. According to Sakr, the recruiter was none other than Abdullah Azzam, the future mentor of Osama bin Laden and co-founder of al-Qaeda. Sakr has boasted about knowing bin Laden, as well.
Sakr came back to the States, during the 1980s, and spent nearly two decades here, before moving on to Cairo, Egypt, where he became involved with the Brotherhood at its global headquarters. During the Arab Spring, Sakr advised Brotherhood leaders and organized Brotherhood rallies against then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. When Abdel Fattah el-Sisi came to power, the Brotherhood became a target. In March 2014, fleeing Egypt, Sakr arrived at the US border, where he was handcuffed and held for six hours but eventually released.
Since being back in the US: Sakr has been sentenced to death in Egypt for the murder of a police officer; he has said America will be “toppled” and Israel will be “obliterated”; and he has called for President Trump’s execution and the outright elimination of the Jews.
