Brotherhood urges world bodies to snub Egypt FM

World Bulletin/News Desk

The Muslim Brotherhood has called on regional and international organizations to snub Egypt's Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmi.

Fahmi is leading Egypt's delegation at the meetings of the UN General Assembly in New York.

"This man is a minister in an unrecognized government installed by an unrecognized president, who was named by a defense minister who has staged a military coup against a legitimate president," the Brotherhood said in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Anadolu Agency.

The army deposed elected president Mohamed Morsi on July 3 after mass protests against his presidency.

The unconstitutional change of government is described by the ousted president's backers as a "military coup," while supporters of the move call it a military-backed "popular uprising."

The Brotherhood accused the military-backed authorities of "committing bloody massacres against opponents of the coup," arresting political leaders and activists and terrorizing civilians.

It appealed to all countries and institutions "not to recognize this government and prevent the foreign minister from representing Egypt."

Egyptian authorities have unleashed a massive crackdown on Brotherhood leaders since last month's dispersal of two sit-ins set up by supporters of Morsi, in which hundreds of protesters were killed by security forces.

Since then, Egypt's military-backed authorities have rounded up hundreds of the group's senior and mid-ranking members, topped by Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie and deputies Khairat al-Shater and Rashad Bayoumi.

Unfortunately the MB have failed to understand their credibility as an organisation has gone. much of what was written, interpreted and shown (not all) was manufactured to cover up lies to win sympathy. Most of those rounded up were those released by Morsi after he came into power. Horribly this is what innocent Egyptian are now paying for.
