The Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t pose a threat to democratic reform, a top military official said this week. Major General Said el-Assar, in an attempt to quell international worries of the growing Brotherhood popularity in the country, said fears of the Islamic group are unfounded.

He said the Brotherhood had a right to participate in the political life and future of Egypt as does any other group in the country.

“They are not seeking to have a religious country,” said Assar, a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) that took control when ousted President Hosni Mubarak relinquished power.

“They have to have the same rights as all Egyptians.”

Assar assured an audience on Sunday at the United States Institute of Peace, a government-funded organization, that the military council is eager to hand over authority to civilian parliament and president to be elected later this year.

Elections are scheduled for November, after having been pushed back from an initial September date. Ongoing protests here in Cairo are continuing to call for the end of military rule, despite the timetable established by the ruling junta.

The general continued to say that the 1979 Camp David Accords with Israel will not be amended and the military remains committed to international treaties.

However, he was reported to say that newly elected officials must respond to public sentiment in Egypt.

Reality The Ugly Truth
The Muslim Brotherhood, sporting a well decorated mask are achieving acceptance under their veil, literally speaking as well, in order to reach power in the new democratic Egypt, which secular forces liberated from oppression, the Muslim Brotherhood must and is only left with the choice of portraying something they are not, the Muslim Brotherhood is a major threat, now to reach power they show no interest in it, and comofort those who wish to have simple freedoms, and not have their wives, daughters, sisters, mothers and any females in their family forcefully veiled. For now they do not wish for an Islamic state, later when they reach power, Egypt will not just be Iran, but something much worse. It is a pity what modern day Islamists have done to the reputation of Islam, a beautiful, peaceful and just religion which has had it's image tarnished by people like the Muslim Brotherhood, this group was a terrorist group fighting the government with guns not long ago, and now they will lead us? Do not believe the lies they tell, stand up against a religious state, save our Egypt.
