Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, Egypt’s most active militant group, has sworn allegiance to Islamic State, a statement from Ansar said Monday night.

Ansar had previously told Reuters that it sought inspiration and advice from Islamic State, the radical al-Qaeda offshoot that has taken over swathes of Iraq and Syria, drawing U.S.-led airstrikes as it tries to remake the map of the Middle East.

“After entrusting God we decided to swear allegiance to the emir of the faithful Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, caliph of the Muslims in Syria and Iraq and in other countries,” the statement said.  
If Morsi had remained in power these terrorists would've been integrated into the Egyptian military and security forces, and would've taken command of key positions, but the Egyptian people acted with wisdom and threw him out of office.

Also, Morsi's radical and sectarian Muslim Brotherhood base wanted to use the Egyptian army to attack Syria. Patience wasn't the order of the day so the army was forced to act quickly. Of course, a military dictatorship is a bad thing, but it was the better of two bad options that the Egyptian people were faced with last summer.
