Cairo, 9 Muharram 1436/2 November 2014 (MINA) – The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt announced its full support of the families residing in Sinai and said that they will not leave them to face the coup’s schemes and state-induced terrorism alone.
In a statement issued yesterday evening, the group condemned the regime’s use of murder, kidnapping and forced displacements of families in Rafah, according to Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reports quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA), Sunday.
The statement emphasised their belief that the regime’s deceptive schemes will not succeed in deceiving the Egyptian people who have sacrificed everything for their beloved country and assured the people that the perpetrators of these crimes will not evade punishment. The Muslim Brotherhood accused the Egyptian regime of implementing an Israeli-American agenda in Sinai.
The statement also pointed out that the country’s legitimate president Dr Mohamed Morsi was working to reconstruct Sinai and abort the implementation of a Zionist agenda within the peninsula.
The group condemned the regime’s forced displacement of Sinai’s citizens and its criminality towards the people of Rafah who have been subject to torture, kidnapping and looting. The statement highlighted the regime’s failed attempts to whitewash crimes in Sinai via the media.
Warning the regime of the consequences that would ensue if they continued to use the army to negatively impact civilian life in Sinai and in Rafah, the Brotherhood condemned the use of military force to arrest honourable students and teachers within Egypt.
The Brotherhood’s statement also warned of the regime’s use of crocodile tears to sway people into believing their lies and justifications for the violent actions it has used against them. They expressed their support for the people of Sinai and all revolutionaries and opposition members who have worked to bring an end to the regime since January 25, 2011. (T/P3/R01)
