Jailed Egyptian Jihad group leader, Sayyed Imam, has released Revisions, a new book calling for an end to militant operations and the killing of civilians.
 
Imam is currently imprisoned in Cairo. He was the founder and first commander of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad organisation, whose supporters assassinated Anwar Sadat, the late Egyptian president, in 1981 and later worked with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in the war against the Soviet occupation.
 
So, what is the significance of this move?
 
What will the fallout be for Jihad followers worldwide?
 
What impact will this have on al-Qaeda?
