Statement of MB on the Fierce Security Attack on Leaders and Members of the Group
At a time when the Egyptian regime is unable to meet the needs of the Egyptian people there is evidence of the decline of Egypt “s international and regional role. The inefficiency of alleviating the suffering of all sectors and the solving of problems in all the walks of life is clear. There has been an increase in unemployment and widespread corruption is abundant. Officials are simply too busy with their own affairs seeking to further their own interests. This coincides with the full force of detentions and arrests by security forces. Campaigns have been carried out against honourable people who are arrested without charge where there only crimes are their attempts to keep themselves purified. Why, we ask is all this happening? Without doubt this does not serve our nations” interest where the only benefactors are the enemies who promote the US-Zionist alliance.
The Muslim Brotherhood movement wholeheartedly announces their adamant stance of continuing their missionary course despite the malice, injustice and violence perpetrated by wrong-doers. We will however, maintain our peaceful reformist method, no matter what the pressures are despite the constraints and restrictions placed. The Muslim Brotherhood emphasized that the plots and conspiracies of Zionists and those who seek alliance with the U.S. and Zionists will not deter them.
They should know that Allah gives respite to the oppressor, but when He takes him over. He never releases him. As injustice is abode in the darkness of the Hell on the Day of Resurrection (Do not think that Allah is unaware of the harm-doers work) (Ibrahim: 42).
We urge our nation”s freelancers and intellectuals to rise against the injustice that truly is not in our country”s best interest. This injustice can only harm the safety, wellbeing and security of our citizens. We besiege them to voice their rejections loud and clear against these injustices. Freedom is an issue which affects the nation as a whole.
Without the help of free-willed men there will be no prosperity or progress in our society.
Where are the free writers? Where are the opposition parties? Where are the community”s popular movements? Why is there no protest against the attitude of the unjust regime?
Brothers… you must understand detention campaigns are not new. The Preacher’s path requires patience, persistence, and sacrifice (O you who believe! Endure and be more patient (than your enemy), and guard your territory by stationing army units permanently at the places from where the enemy can attack you, and fear Allah, so that you may be successful. (Al-i-“Imran: 200). (And when the believers saw Al-Ahzab (the Confederates), they said: “This is what Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad PBUH) had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger had spoken the truth, and it only added to their faith and to their submissiveness (to Allah). We the Muslim Brotherhood believe that your patience is not fear or alarm… (Men said to them: “A great army is gathering against you”: And frightened them: But it (only) increased their Faith: They said: “For us Allah is sufficient and He is the best disposer of affairs.” Al-i-“Imran: 173). They trust in the very close victory of Allah according to the following two verses (“and say, “When will that be?” Say, “May be it will be quite soon!) (Al-Isra”: 51). (And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs; but most among mankind know it not.) (Yusuf: 21)
