CAIRO – 12 May 2022: Political Islam Researcher Maher Farghali said in a TV interview that he had acquired communications between late President Mohamed Morsi, who was a leader at the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and Jihadist groups in Sinai.


The researcher said that such communications took place while Morsi was in office, as the Salafist Jihadist Group used to ask for help with fulfilling certain needs. Farghali revealed that Morsi used to respond back from Al Itihadiya Presidential Palace, and that such communications are among the documents of the "Ansar Bait Al maqdes" lawsuit.


The Political Islam expert said that Mulsim-Brotherhood leaders Khairat al-Shater, Ayman Abdel Ghany, and Mohamed al-Beltagy were coordinating among terrorist groups, and stood behind sending terrorist elements for training in Sinai.   


The researcher said that one of the main reasons the brotherhood's regime collapsed is the weakness of their political ideology and their poor intellectual capacities. "The brotherhood's ideas were vague, as it was attempting to show it adopts some Salafist and Sufi ideas in order to gain larger numbers of supporters," Farghaly said.


The expert added that internal conflicts over financial matters and moral values weakened the group. Farghali underscored that the group had no plan on achieving development in Egypt, but they pretended to have one and called it the "Renaissance Project."


The researcher highlighted that the brotherhood had plans to jeopardize the Egyptian economy by establishing a secret economic cartel that would manipulate the market dynamics.


To further infirtlate the society, Fraghali said that the brotherhood created secret political lobbies, associations, and field networks that would advance the group's goals. That is in addition to forming an armed branch, whose mission was draining the resources and energy of the state's security institutions.


The Political Islam expert stipulated that the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood has provided all terror groups that have been active since 2011 with all the necessary support. That includes delegating members to lead such groups, Farghali asserted.  


Mohamed Morsi was elected president on June 30, 2012, but got overthrown on July 3, 2013 over mass protests that began on June 30 of the same year.
