Khaled Hamza, Ikhwanweb's chief editor, strongly condemned statements by jihadist groups affiliated with  Al-Qaeda  concerning the ongoing protests in Egypt, calling for Egyptians to wage violent "Jihad" to topple the regime in Egypt.

Hamza confirmed the Muslim Brotherhood's firm stance against use of  violence  to achieve legitimate popular demands, rejecting any interference in Egypt’s domestic affairs. He stressed that Egyptians are capable of solving their problem without intrusion, meddling and prying from foreign groups such as Alqaeda and simialr groups advocating the use of violence.  

The MB is confident that Egyptians will ignore latest al Qaeda statements and its ideology, which contradict with the basic tenets of Islam and the peacedul nature of the Egyptian people.

Hamza confirmed that the current revolution in Egypt is the "People’s revolution" not an Islamic one, and includes all sects, trends and religions. Egyptian men, women, children, Muslims and Christians have united in their call for freedom and democracy, and the MB group has participated as part of the people.

Al Qaeda statements were made on online forums affiliated with the group, and came after protesters in Cairo and across Egypt staged the biggest show of defiance yet against Egypt’s president Mubarak. For three weeks demonstrators have crowded into the city's Tahrir Square each day demanding that Mubarak to step down.

MB is moderate ismail
I completely agree with the stance of the Muslim Brotherhood. Its moderate stance is very attractive to right-thinking Muslims. But i am worried in case those among the so-called Jihadist groups will feel jealous of the support given to the MB and subsequently engage in violence against the MB. This is not unknown in the history of Islam. The Khawarij is the obvious example.
