They really shouldn’t worry, el-Sisi talks a big game, but lets see if he really carries it out.
Islamists warn of backlash over Mohamed Morsi death sentence
Muslim Brotherhood say prison break sentences are act of revenge by Egyptian regime as crackdown intensifies
Egyptian Islamists have warned that the world should brace itself for a backlash after the country’s first freely elected president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, was given a provisional death sentence nearly two years after he was overthrown by the army following mass protests against his rule.
Morsi was among over 100 men sentenced to death on Saturday for allegedly escaping prison during the 2011 uprising that toppled Morsi’s predecessor, Hosni Mubarak. Morsi and his colleagues were convicted of conspiring with Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian offshoot, whom judges decided had helped the prisoners leave jail in January 2011.
