Leader of Egypt`s Brotherhood slams opposition
Cairo: The leader of Egypt`s ruling Islamists has lashed out at the opposition, accusing it of teaming up with remnants of Hosni Mubarak`s regime to sow unrest and violence.
Thursday`s remarks by Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie came in his weekly message to followers.
He says that some unnamed Egyptian politicians now are bankrolled by foreign funds to instigate violence and that they have joined forces with Mubarak loyalists to do so.
Badie also offered a version of the tumultuous events since the uprising in January 2011 against Mubarak that is favorable to his group, saying the Brotherhood was the engine and protector of that revolt.
Badie echoed President Mohammed Morsi`s message, articulated several times this week — that recent unrest was the work of paid thugs, not real "revolutionaries."
