FJP, Anti-Coup Alliance Reaffirm Peacefulness Choice; Reject Violence Against Army
Egypt’s coalition of pro-Morsi parties and movements reject incitement to violence as a reaction to the repressive practices of the Egyptian Interior Ministry and its security agencies against peaceful protesters.
Saturday, August 31,2013 19:21

The Anti-Coup, Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance rejected suggestions by a non-Egyptian Al-Qaeda-affiliated group to "take up arms against the Egyptian army".

The group "The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant", one of the prominent arms of Al-Qaeda, said in a statement Saturday that "the bloody repression of Islamist protesters shows the futility of peaceful means".

In response to the statement, Khaled Hanafi, a leading member of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) and the National Alliance, told Anatolia News Agency: "We condemn this discourse in its entirety. Our protests are peaceful. Non-violence is our choice, it is not imposed on us".
