CAIRO: The recent initiatives undertaken by Muslim Brotherhood leaders are only aimed to get them out from the current crisis, said the chairman of the Social People’s Alliance Party (SPAP), Abdel Ghafar Shokr, to Youm7 on Sep. 20.
“Even the apology to the Egyptian people issued by the Freedom and Justice Party’s leader Hamza Zoba’a was just a personal attempt to drag the Brotherhood out from their current critical position,” said Shokr.
In addition to it, Shokr said that “the Brotherhood leaders would sacrifice their young followers to protect themselves and to put pressure on the Egyptian state.”
The General Secretary of the Muslim Brotherhood Mahmoud Hussein said in a press conference that Zoba’a’s apology had to be considered as a personal gesture and not as a reflection of the Brotherhood’s position as a whole, according to Al-Jazeera Mubashir Misr.
According to Al-Masry Al-Youm, Brotherhood leader Essam el-Erian attacked the state of “violence and terrorism spilled across Egypt” on Al-Jazeera, and called on young people to join the mass streets protests organized against the military forces.
