Egypt Orders 18 Brotherhood Members Held on Terror Charges

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Egyptian prosecutors ordered at least 18 Muslim Brotherhood members, including an ex-lawmaker, held on accusations of belonging to a terrorist group, a day after the government blacklisted the movement, state media reported.

They include the son of a deputy leader of deposed president Mohammed Morsi's movement, which the government declared yesterday a terrorist organisation, the official MENA news agency said.

Seven were detained for a renewable two-week period in the city of Alexandria and 11 in the Nile Delta town of Zagazig.

Police also arrested 16 suspected Muslim Brotherhood members for passing out leaflets in support of the group and "inciting to violence," the agency reported.

The Brotherhood's designation as a terrorist group means anyone taking part in these rallies could be sentenced to five years in prison, the interior ministry said.

Possessing their literature, or supporting them "verbally or in writing," is punishable by up to five years in prison, a ministry statement said.

The Brotherhood still organizes almost daily protests demanding Morsi's return almost six months after the military overthrew him.

More than 1,000 people have been killed in street clashes and thousands imprisoned in a police crackdown on the movement.

In order for that to be accomplished you will need the majority of Lebanese citizens to have the same opinion as you.
Unfortunately, for you, that is not the case. In fact, its quite the opposite.
Now do you have any other suggestions? Realistic suggestions.

Egyptian army is crushing the muslim brotherhood, America is not saying a single word about it, when Syria did it they were screaming about human rights.

There is no human rights for muslim brotherhood fanatics, all they want is Sharia with no rights for free people, such as the christian copts.

Guarantee you will see the crimes and corruption by the police state thugs you are supporting .... Once they have full control... And by the looks of it we are losing for now ... Even USA is keeping quite on the daily murders taking place by the terrorist ASSad.
