    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, MAY 9 - Al-Qaeda-inspired militant group in the Sinai, Ansar Beit al Magdis, has posted an audio message on Islamic websites saying that ''democracy equals apostasy'' and that it will fight ''crusaders and Zionists''. The jihadist group, which has carried out a number of attacks against Egyptian security forces, explained its doctrine in the statement, saying that ''democracy leads Muslims to follow a world order dominated by Zionists and crusaders that promote their perception of the world, where only their blood is valued and not that of Muslims''.

    ''The fortunes and resources of Muslims are in the hands of apostate rulers due to this democracy soiled by Muslim blood which prevents the prophet's principles from being carried out'', the statement also said.

    The movement concluded stressing that democracy must be eliminated because ''it does not allow to save Muslims and theorizes the equality of Jews, Copts and Muslims and must therefore be condemned''. (ANSAmed)
