Oh Snap: Zawahiri's Brother Arrested in Egypt

We'll call this the upside of civil war in Egypt:

EGYPTIAN authorities have arrested the brother of al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri, a security official has said.

He said Mohammed al-Zawahri, leader of the ultraconservative Jihadi Salafist group, was detained at a checkpoint in Giza, the city across the Nile from Cairo....

Authorities said earlier that al-Zawahri had commanded insurgents in Sinai Peninsula.

Maybe this time the Egyptian military will do us all a favor and put a bullet in the back of Zawahiri's head?
