How come the new Egyptian "democracy" smells like jihad?

Egypt’s worst terrorist organizations resurface and enter politics, from Eye on the World:
(World Threats) Recent events indicate that some of Egypt’s most heavily suppressed Islamist groups are resurfacing.

Stoking the embers of growing political instability is the fiery Islamist leader Muhammad Hassan, a prominent figure in Egypt’s formerly banned Salafist movements. Hassan and his followers convened a large conference the Egyptian city of Mansoura this week to protest any future constitutional changes to the country’s second article which defines Islam as the official religion of Egypt and Islamic Law as the source of its legislation.

In another move that is likely to complicate civil and democratic interests in the country, Gama’a al-Islamiya, the Islamist terrorist group responsible for both the assassination of former president Anwar Sadat and the 1997 Luxor Massacre at Deir el-Bahari, is also consolidating its followers. This week they began the process of creating a formal political party which they say will participate fully in the coming Egyptian elections.
