May 8, 2020 Extremists

Born: 1956;

Place of Birth: Cairo, Egypt;

Gender: Male;

Nationality: Egyptian;

General Info:
Nabil Naim Abdel Fattah was born in 1956 in Boulaq Abu El-Ela neighborhood, to which my family belongs too. He received a Bachelor degree of Science from the Cairo University, the place where he started his religious commitment.

He is the founder of the Democratic Jihad Party as well as a contributor to Asharq Al-Awsat. He was also the leader of Egyptian Islamic Jihad from 1988 until 1992.

He was arrested by Egypt in 1991 and not released until the 2011 Egyptian revolution. He and Ismail Nasr wrote up a document abandoning violence towards the state, though it did not gain much support, partly because he was not theologically qualified. The revisions of Sayyid Imam al-Sharif were more widely accepted among members of Egyptian Islamic Jihad.

He also backed the protests started by Tamarod that led to the 2013 Egyptian coup. Naeem stated in an interview that the Muslim Brotherhood should be overthrown by the military. He has also stated that the Muslim Brotherhood “used Islam as a tool of repression.”

In his criticism stated in May 2013, he has called the Brotherhood a “dictatorial organization.” In a news conference held by the Association for Victims of the Muslim Brotherhood Regime on 28 September, Na’eem called Mohamed Morsi a “traitor.”
