 In a statement, Dr. Mohamed Beltagy, member of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP)’s Executive Bureau, said that hostile media, acting like ‘intelligence’ agencies, made up a report ​​by cutting and pasting words of his so it appeared like he masterminded the Sinai incidents, referring to the fact that the media is now run by intelligence agencies.

"Intelligence-run media outlets carved out part of my interview about the violence in the Sinai. In that interview, I affirmed that the Brotherhood had absolutely nothing to do with that matter at all, that the Sinai’s violent incidents are just a manifestation of the tension which has been exacerbated in Egyptian society in the wake of the military coup, and that the situation there will return to stability automatically the moment the military coup is over and all consequent actions have been reversed, most important of which being the reinstatement of the elected President Morsi.

"Suddenly, I find that intelligence-run media outlets have cut and pasted my words, so it looks as if we were the masterminds of the events in the Sinai. Any casual onlooker, not to mention professional observers, anywhere in the world, will know that the Muslim Brotherhood has not supported and will not support violence ever, but will remain steadfast in complete peacefulness, while affirming that this military coup is a blatant crime against the homeland, the people, the Revolution, democracy in Egypt and human rights. And we will not accept it."
