CAIRO – 15 August 2021: The Rabaa sit-in podium was extremely controversial during the one month and a half long sit-in at Rabaa square in Cairo. Muslim Brotherhood leaders took the stage to incite violence, brainwash their followers into staying despite knowing the risks, and promise them paradise.

The sit-in, which later proved to have hosted weapons and hotbed for terrorist recruitment, was dispersed forcibly on Aug. 14, 2013. Below are some of the memorable quotes from the podium.

Safwat Hegazy: “If you pray Morsi with water, we will spray you with blood.”

“If you spray water on Morsi, we will spray you with blood,” said Muslim Brotherhood preacher Safwat Hegazy from Rabaa. It is an Egyptian idiom that threatens a violent reaction with excessive force. It was just all too real when he said it because terrorist attacks were already being committed in Sinai at the time.

Assem Abdel Maged: Supporters of Mohamed Morsi are the supporters of Prophet Mohamed

Assem Abdel Maged, an Islamic Group leader, said from Rabaa “no retreat, no surrender until Islam rules,” except that it was rhythmic in Arabic. He implied that the majority of people in Egypt are not Muslim, which angered Muslims in Egypt who have long felt stripped of their religion by the Muslim Brotherhood, which though they could monopolize a religion followed by millions of people who do not believe in the group’s ideology.

He also claimed that protesters in Rabaa were not political follwoers of the Brotherhood or Salafists, but rather exclusive followers of Prophet Mohamed, in an attempt to give them a sort of holiness.

“The idiots put their necks under the guillotine, and we must now step on the blade,” Abdel Maged also said.

Tarek Al-Zumur: We will crush them

Islamic Group leader Tarek al-Zumur, who now resides in Qatar, said “we will crush them on June 30 and it will be a knockout.” Zumur was complicit in the assassination of late President Anwar al-Sadat in 1981.

Mohamed al-Beltagy: When Morsi returns, terrorism in Sinai stops

Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed al-Beltagy said from Rabaa that “what is happening in Sinai is a reaction to the ouster of Morsi and it will stop once he comes back.” Violence in Sinai had already begun, while it was still limited in the mainland, until Rabaa sit-in was dispersed Aug. 14 and then Morsi supporters committed wide-scale sabotage and murders in many cities across the country.
