Muslim brotherhood members protest against former President Mohamed Morsi' ouster- Reuters
CAIRO – 12 August 2017: On the fourth anniversary of the Rabaa Adawiya sit-in dispersal, the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood leaders incite violence and insist on defying the Egyptian street via its leaders’ calls to adopt violent actions. Rabaa Adawiya left 17 martyrs, including four officers on August 14, 2013.
“We come with violence,” is the motto of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood since the removal of ousted president Mohamed Morsi. Armed and violent groups were formed and claimed responsibility for many terrorist acts in Cairo and nationwide. The Brotherhood leadership claims peacefulness is not a pillar in Islam.
Shalash, member of the Magdy Brotherhood high administrative committee, wrote an article demanding the Brotherhood supporters to resort to violence and follow the, “Footsteps of Turkish President Recep Rajab Tayyib Erdogan,” when he oppressed his opponents.
According to his article, peaceful opposition is not something clear in Islam; however he called for adopting the decentralization of terrorist attacks strategy which is followed by terrorist organization of the Islamic State.
“The Brotherhood is used to falsifying facts and spreading misinterpretation of the pillars of Islam,” member of the Islamic Research Academy Mohamed al-Gendy told Egypt Today on Saturday.
Al-Gendy stressed that, “Most of the Brotherhood leaders justify the formation of armed and militant groups and direct the youth to adopt violence and armed actions.”
Gamal al-Menshawy is an expert in Islamic movements. He added that the statements made by Shalash reveal how the Brotherhood is a contradictory organization.
“Our Peacefulness is stronger than bullets,” Brotherhood Guide Mohamed Badei once said, while Shalash denies peaceful actions are not part of Islam’s pillars.
Brotherhood leader Haitham Abou Khalil, fled to Turkey after the June 30 Revolution ignited into violence on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of Rabaa Adawiya sit-in dispersal.
“Commemoration of Rabaa Adawiya anniversary should be accompanied by actual retaliation actions, was not only mere words,” Abou Khalil wrote on his facebook account on Tuesday.
