In Muslim countries, as in the West, public figures know how to use the media to build their persona. I asked Dr Kamal Habib, were you involved in the murder of Anwar Sadat?
Yes I participated he said. Following the assassination, hundreds went to prison-including Dr Habib. I was convicted and served ten years, from 1981 to 1991.His decade in prison should have given him ample time to renounce violence. I am against individual violence, but if there is a historical moment that demands a real change involving a kind of revolution like civil disobedience or political struggle then I am with this!
Of course in the end I don’t want violence, but the unjust foreign policy of the United States offering military ties to their aid in the Middle East requires the involvement of new generations of young Muslims and Arabs with ongoing violence. This crusade reminds me of the Crusades that happened before. Therefore they are just defending their countries their societies their identity their culture and their civilisation.
He still believed that he and his colleagues were working within Islam by seeking to remove a ruler they perceived as working against Islam. But, he said he came to the opinion that the ‘use of force’ to change regimes has dangerous consequences for society, for Islam and for unity we call for participation in the political process.

He describes Al Qaeda (the organisation) as ‘a response to this unjust Western policy toward the Islamic world.’

That is not exactly what Osama said many times over as in 1998, Osama, Zawahiri and others calling themselves ‘the Global Islamic Front for Jihad against Jews and Crusaders’ issued one of their homemade fatwas declaring;

“To kill the American and their allies-civilians and military-is an individual duty incumbent upon every Muslim in all countries…”

And in October 2001 right after the bombing began in Afghanistan Osama again declared,

“I have only a few words for America and its people: I swear by God Almighty who raised the heavens without effort that neither America nor anyone who lives there will enjoy safety until safety becomes a reality for us living in Palestine and before all the infidel armies leave the land of Muhammad.”
