Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood threatens war on the people of Egypt
ICC Note:
Egyptian’s are calling for the international community to support those who are pursuing an inclusive and just Egypt and to avoid any support that leads to greater violence and bloodshed. There have been threats of increased sectarian violence against Egyptian government and at soft targets – which is often the Christian community’s churches, houses, and stores.

7/16/2013 Egypt (VotC) – According to public statements, three days from today, on July 19th, the Muslim Brotherhood will begin attacks against Egypt’s military compounds, military personnel, government buildings, and soft targets (houses, stores, and churches) in order to recover and secure their power over Egypt — then reinstate Mohammad Morsi as President.
Muslim Brotherhood leader, Al Baltaghy, announced a few days ago from the Al Adawiya podium where supporters are still gathered to request Morsi’s return, that Friday, Ramadan the 10th, will be the day to take back Egypt — exactly like the attempt made to liberate Sinai from Jewish occupation on this same Ramadan date back in 1973 led by Anwar Sadat on October 6th.
From the same stage, Mohammad Hassan Hamaad, communications director of the Muslim Brotherhood, used the metaphor, “second legitimate crossing,” referring to the West-East crossing of the Suez Canal by the Egyptian army on Ramadan years earlier.  Evoking history, Hamaad advocates aggression for success in returning elected President Morsi to office. Adding to Hamaad, Al Baltaghy stated, “We will not accept any kind of negotiation, and Morsi is the only one that has the right as the elected President to negotiate once he is back in his valid position as President of the country.”
Lies from the Muslim Brotherhood leadership
Avoiding the fact that Muslim Brotherhood leadership is entirely responsible for Egypt’s deterioration in the past year, which in turn led to their overthrow, Al Baltaghy stated, “whoever created the mess [overthrow] will pay for the consequences,” stressing that “the victim is not to blame” and, “we are not the ones who created this chaos.”

Voice of the Copts appeals to world leaders
Please support the genuine cry of Egyptian people for democracy and freedom. Do not remain silent and watch Egypt become a bloody civil war like Libya and Syria. Send a strong message to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood that the free world will not tolerate religious supremacy and the violence it brings. The collective will of Egypt’s outspoken population — free thinkers from all facets of Egyptian society — is the only avenue for Egypt. If 13 million voters chose Sharia by electing Morsi, many more stand in the streets today as proponents of Western freedoms.
At the heart of Egypt’s course ahead lie a tormented and frayed people who see themselves with nothing more to lose. Resentment and anger have grown to a point of doing what is forbidden in Islam – willfully seeking a manmade answer in the form of democracy with its gift of freedom, equality and human rights. If this is true, there is hope.
