Video: Jihadis from Ansar Beit al-Maqdis down Egyptian helicopter

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, I reported that Sinai jihadis had obtained surface-to-air missiles. The basis for that report was a report on a downed Egyptian army helicopter in which five Egyptian troops were killed. The Egyptian army claimed it was a result of a technical malfunction, while the jihadi group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis claimed that their men had downed the helicopter by firing a missile. Now, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has released video proving their claim.

Let's go to the videotape.

JPost adds:
The clip features an audio track of a Koranic verse titled "The hand of God is what struck." A voiceover belonging to "Abu Osama al-Masri" is then heard warning the Cairo regime of a similar fate that befell Syria, Libya, and deposed president Hosni Mubarak.

"Did the United States help [Mubarak]?" the speaker asks sarcastically.

"If you do not cease collaborating with the fighters of Muslims, we will stand against you and all of your planes won't help because we are the soldiers of God," the speaker says in the video.
That sure doesn't look like a simulation, nor does it look like a technical malfunction. Hmmm.
