MB Calls on Military Junta to Break the Siege of Gaza
The Muslim Brotherhood has called on the Supreme Council of the armed forces, that reflects the people’s will, to break the siege which is suffocating the lives of the people of Gaza, adding that Arab peoples must take a decisive stand on this issue.
In an exclusive statement to "Ikhwanweb", the group added that people’s concern with popular revolutions, which is now sweeping the region, and the winds of change that have uprooted the Mubarak’s and other US-backed Arab regimes, cannot dissuade Arabs from their fundamental cause of Palestine and other Islamic and Christian sanctities, explaining that it is time for the Zionists to review their accounts, after the ouster of their dog who saw him as the strategic ally and a treasure for Israel that promotes the latter’s policies, and supports their malicious scheme and strikes with its sword.
Mubarak assisted Israel in strangling the people of Gaza while he and his cronies live off the largesse of Washington and he betrayed his people because his subservience to American interests allowed Israel to massacre more than 2,000 Gazans with impunity in 2008 and 2009.
Mubarak’s opprsessive regime tortured detainees from the people of Gaza in search of Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh who was at war with Israel, and the place of detention of the Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit for the benefit of the Israeli occupation authority (IOA), the statement said.
The Brotherhood calls on rival Palestinian factions, especially Fatah and Hamas, to seek reconciliation and form a unity government, taking care of the Palestinian people’s interests, affirming their unity and supporting the larger goal of liberating the land and regaining the rights of displaced Palestinians to return to their homes.
"The conditions have changed and the people have regained their sovereignty that was stolen by the authoritarian regimes, liberated their own will, and the army has already proved that it is the People’s Army", the statement added," in response to the continuation of Israel’s brutal oppression in the region and its new military attacks on Gaza Strip, which have resulted in the deaths of four and the injury of many civilians."
The MB called the moderate camp, or rather those subservient to US-Israel dictates, to teach the West, which supports the Zionist aggression, that Arabs, who have tasted their liberation, refuse to do harm or practice slavery against their brothers. People must determine their own fate, restore their usurped rights, and liberate their sacred lands, the Brothers said.
According to the MB statement, the Arab people made great strides towards genuine democratic rule deprived them of US-imposed dictatorship regimes.
