Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Issues Ultimatum

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood threatened to resume rioting if the government doesn't "submit to the will of the people," the Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm reported in its English edition Wednesday.

Speaking at a conference organized by the Muslim Brotherhood in Alexandria, Hassan al-Brince said the "legitimacy" of the interim military government ends September 27.

Al-Brince accused the "remnants of the former [Mubarak] regime" of instigating chaos to delay elections and prolong their rule. He said members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood would be willing to risk their lives to accomplish their goals.


The egyptian military rule has set end of January 2012 for elections. Apparently the Muslims Brotherhood doesn't want to wait till then.

We'll see if they are bluffing...

Is it possible this news is linked to other developments like turkey threatening Israel and Saudi threatening US?

I don't think so. The current military dictatorship were saying that the elections were supposed to happen in September-October.

They have hold on to power. Nothing proves they will give power in January.

The killing of 5 Egyptian cops by Israel and the Egyptian government basically saying nothing probably helped push things however.

I don't see the military peacefully giving up power......ever in Egypt. They will not be forced out by anyone. Whoever "wins" the election will be someone who has the approval of the military.

There was no Plan B for an Egypt after Mubarak, we will see what happens from that lack of planning. That's the problem with siding with a dictator, as soon as they are gone, chaos ensues. The next leader of Egypt will probably have a military background of some sort.

You may just be right....The bortherhood may also be a Cia funded entity, ever consider?
It turns our Alqueda is in charge in Libya so why not a clandestine backing in egypt for the brotherhood.
Its cmmon strategy to use one set of enemies to get rid of another before polishing off the weakened victor....
Egypt may need to be distracted from its alliance with Turkey at this time too.....
Gawd, its all so stinking convoluted that it would take a basket of snakes to trace the connections....!
Whos doing what tome whom is the real question du jour here......

The Muslim Brotherhood has a long history, I seriously doubt they are under CIA control or direction.

We should have been doing what we did in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics, funneling money and spending our effort building up the opposition so when it came time for the eventual changing of the guard, we had helped create a viable alternative. Those "color" revolutions didn't just happen on their own, you know. For the most part in the Arab Spring, we are being reactive rather than proactive. The pace of changes there are making it hard to be ahead of the curve on this one. There are tons of people in Egypt who we could be working with and helping I'm sure. We walk a fine line there but we can still be supporting the military (they are going away, regardless of who is in power) and strengthening groups we find common ground with in Egypt. If we don't do anything, the well organized Muslim Brotherhood will be a major player in Egypt.
