Egyptian Islamic Jihad
Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ) is an Islamic terrorist organization in Egypt. The group was formed in the late 1970s. EIJ's primary motive is a violent overthrow of the Government of Egypt and to establish an Islamic state in Egypt. The group is suspected to be responsible for a bombing in 1995 at the Egyptian embassy in Islamabad, and for a foiled attack on the US embassy in Albania in 1998.
