  1. US not considering designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization

    A US official said the Egyptian government was going “way too far” in the crackdown on the Brotherhood, but added that the Obama administration was not planning to take any action against Cairo in response.

    The US official said that the administration of President Barack Obama was not considering, or even discussing, the possibility of the US government designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

    Historically, the US has placed the names of some individuals associated with the Muslim Brotherhood on US government sanctions list, but has not imposed sanctions on the movement itself.

    In Washington, US Secretary of State John Kerry called Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy and “expressed concern” about the terrorist designation of the Muslim Brotherhood and recent detentions and arrests in Egypt, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

    Kerry condemned the recent bomb attacks in Egypt but “underscored the need for an inclusive political process across the political spectrum that respects the fundamental human rights of all Egyptians in order to achieve political stability and democratic change,” Psaki said.

  2. Interior Ministry: Brotherhood protest leaders will be executed

    Interior Ministry spokesperson Hani Abdel Latif said in a press statement issued Thursday that the penalty for leading a Muslim Brotherhood demonstration will be the death sentence, even if it is a woman.

    The harsh move comes in accordance with yesterday’s declaration of the Broterhood a terrorist organization, which was issued after the car bombing in Mansoura that killed at least 15 people. Though an unaffiliated terrorist group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdes, claimed responsibility for the attack, the newly empowered political establishment has decided to ride the wave of fear and take the opportunity to further squash the only viable political opposition to their rule. Meanwhile, the interim government has yet to produce evidence linking the Brotherhood to the attack.

    Abdel Latif added that those who take part in such demonstrations or is a part of the group’s leadership will also be imprisoned.

    “Anyone who promotes verbally or in writing the ideas of the group or possesses leaflets or recordings of those ideas will also be sentenced for five years imprisonment,” he said. “And anyone who will assume a leadership position within the group or provide it with funds or information will be sentenced to life imprisonment.”

    He said the interior minister is holding an emergency meeting with his aides on Thursday to devise a plan to secure all schools and Egyptian streets in general, and to discuss ways to implement the cabinet’s declaration of the Brotherhood a terrorist group.
