Ansar al-Sharia in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training its members, in a statement posted on an online forum.
Ansar al-Sharia said in its statement the military coup, the closing of television channels and the killing of Muslim protesters all amounted to a war declared against Islam in Egypt.
The group pointed at criminals: secularists, supporters of Mubarak and Egyptian Coptic Christians, state security forces and army commanders, who would turn the country into a crusader, secular freak.
It denounced democracy and said it would instead champion Islamic law, or Sharia, acquire weapons and train to allow Muslims to deter the attackers, preserve the religion and empower the Sharia of the Lord.
This spells major trouble.
