In a word addressed to all the Egyptian national forces, MB Chairman Mohamed Mahdi Akef emphasized the advantage of Ramadan as being an opportunity for those who truly want to make a change and an appropriate time for reform.

 

The true reform begins with changing one"s self, Akef said, explaining that "Ramadan teaches us that there is strength inside us that no hardship can defeat and no barrier can impede."

 

"A society which changes overnight from one state into another by approaching prayers, fasting, reading Qur"an, alms-giving, and charitable deeds, will not find it difficult to make a change in other fields if it wants as long as its intentions are sincere and there is a will," Akef added.

 

Akef listed the several challenges encountering the Arab and Muslim worlds throughout the process of change which included: "despotism, subjugation, violation of human rights, corruption, lagging, dependence, diseases, ignorance, and unemployment," at the internal level, in addition to "conspiracy, foreign hegemony, deception, plotting, and both direct and indirect invasion," at the external level.  

 

He added that the combating against the country"s noblemen and depriving them from participating in the development of their country by means of flagrantly forging the results of elections to prevent their representation in bodies such as the Shura Council and Municipal governments are practices, adopted by most of the ruling regimes, which contradict the Islamic obligations of establishing justice and confronting oppression.

 

He further asserted that neither prisons, nor jails, nor suppression, nor discrimination will be able to block "the sun of freedom" or prevent the holder of truth from reaching his aim, after saluting the noble voices that were thrown into the military courts and describing the results of their trials as "tyrannical prison sentences and confiscation of wealth without any crime or offense committed."

 

Similarly, Akef commended MB parliamentary performance, in spite of the constraints and siege on them, citing parliamentary minutes which testified to their active role in opposing the extension of the Emergency Law, the Child Law, and the exporting of gas to the Zionist occupation, in addition to several other issues that concern Egyptian citizens and which affect the present and future of Egypt.

 

Given all the above, it becomes evidently clear that regimes have accepted for themselves the path of submission and subordination to the enemy, as well as strife for attaining his pleasure.  This is reflected in the suffering of the Palestinian people from the siege imposed upon them and the spread of chaos and destruction, and in the suffering of the Iraqi people from the spread of ethnic and religious turmoil, in addition to the turmoil that is being created in Sudan and recreated in Lebanon, Somalia"s reoccupation, the threats being directed to Syria and Iran, the burdening of Afghanistan with the troubles of occupation, the disturbance in Pakistan, and the continuance of Kashmir"s occupation for 60 years.

 

In spite of this tragic reality the forces of reform and change have not given up or fallen into despair as the embers of resistance to these corruptive conditions continue to glow inside them.  Moreover, the nation"s pioneers have devoted themselves to the achievement of lofty aims and noble goals of reform through peaceful constitutional and legal means. 

 

Akef stressed the necessity of unity between the country"s citizens stating: "there is no room for armed internal conflict between the citizens of a country."  In this regard, he accused the political regime of transforming its relationship with the MB from discordant into hostile taking measures against them which have not been taken previously by any other enemy and pointed out the importance of putting disagreements and disputes aside and thinking, instead, about the interests of the country as opposed to personal interests. 

 

Finally, he asserted that the Egyptian people have shown that they are still in motion throughout their protests, sit-ins, and strikes and concluded stating:  "It is in the country"s interest that all its live and popular forces are activated for there is no room for the exclusion or dissolution of any faction."
