Besides the moral and ethical need to uphold the principles of the UN Charter and Human Rights Declaration, the fact is that repression and growing disillusionment is resulting in increasing extremism and violence which are unlikely to be contained within Egypt's boarders.
Security and development are threatened in a country where 40% of the population live on less than $2 a day. Promoting participation by all political forces in Egypt and accountability through a civil society will help foster the cornerstone of real development. The goals of bread, freedom and social justice for which the Egyptian people rose and continue to sacrifice are the keys to stability and prosperity. Egypt has to be free of a military dictatorship that stifles it's political & economic development.
The coup against the legitimately and freely elected President and government of Egypt sends a dangerous signal to all fragile democracies. Furthermore, the coup regime's policies help breed violence that threaten the interests of all those who want to promote security and development.
We wish you every success in your deliberations.
Egyptian Revolutionary Council,
Muslim Brotherhood - International Relations,
The Legitimate Egyptian Parliament
