Muslim Brotherhood announces fresh protests across Egypt

Post by DJKeefy »

The Muslim Brotherhood is continuing to organise protests with fresh calls for a million-man demonstration on Tuesday dubbed "It's the coup that is terrorism."

Protests will be held across Egypt, along with press conferences "to uncover the crimes committed by the perpetrators of the coup," the group announced.

In a statement the National Alliance in Support of Legitimacy said its supporters in Europe have documented crimes committed by leaders of the "3 July coup," and are planning to submit them to the International Court of Justice.

Supporters are also making efforts to turn the tide of public opinion, stressing that Egypt has witnessed a coup and not a revolution, the alliance stressed.

The alliance called for expanding the scope of its campaign of "peaceful civil disobedience," which includes breaking the curfew, claiming the armed forces were forced to shorten it under pressure from ordinary Egyptians.

The alliance's statement failed to mention the 50-member committee tasked with helping draft a new constitution for Egypt, as endorsed by interim President Adly Mansour in the wake of Mohamed Morsy's overthrow.

calls for a million-man demonstration..

Still flogging that dead horse I see.. :up

That hardly represents the Majority of Egyptians though... Assuming 1 million DO turn up, that still leaves 83 million people still at home not giving a damn.. :urm:

Have you shaved that Beard off yet Dusak ?

Maybe trim it back to the chin, and braid it, so it looks like the type of beard King Tut' had.. :cg

Personally, to me, the Ancients Beards looked more like a Mask handle.. but I could be wrong... :tk

..Or simply saying that the face is not real.. Look BEHIND the mask to find the truth ?

My concern for Dusak, is that with his beard, he may be mistaken for some quoran thumping MB member...
Best he carry a copy of Playboy and a bottle of Scotch Whiskey wherever he goes.. :up

I feel quite safe at the moment MB as this time of the year I have a number one. Winter is the hunting season. Four years ago I threw caution to the wind and shaved the lot off, [even found one or two items that I had considered lost :up ] Soon got fed up with friends commenting that my beautiful face looked like a slapped arse. So back it came after a self imposed week at home.
