Dr. Mohamed Morsy, Member of the Excutive Bureau of Muslim Brotherhood, declared in the Egyptian moderate group has rejected all methods of violence whether it is carried out by individuals, groups or even countries.
Morsy confirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood group has never exercised violence and has always condemned it since it was first founded, in 1928, and throughout its history. Regarding the some previous acts of violence allegedly committed by the group, Morsy pointed out that these accidents are only separate and individual incidents carried out before the 1950s to confront the occupation in a resistance that witnessed participation of all powers across the political spectrum in Egypt . During this period of the group"s resistance to occupation, some individual errors were committed and they were immediately condemned by the MB chairman at that time.
In a related context, Morsy denied that there is any intellectual or ideological relation between the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda network. He affirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood adopts all peaceful methods in the public social work. "We are endorsing everything which is to the benefit and aspirations of the society" he said adding that the Muslim Brotherhood group opposes any action that may intimidate Muslims or non- Muslims .
Morsy has issued his statement in response to a research paper issued by Jamestown Think Tank about the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsy called on all western researchers interested in Islamic movements to be professional and do not be effected by Zionism claims and it`s continuous nonrealistic aggression on muslims and he urged those researchers to come closer to the movement and deal with it and with its members in order to say the truth and be accurate in their writings. Morsy has also welcomed any objective study or research that show the Islamic movement neutrally and objectively.
