Morsi's supporters accuse DM of calling for civil war


08:12, July 25, 2013

CAIRO, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Islamist supporters of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday described defense minister's call for rallies to empower the army to crack down on violence as an explicit call for civil war.

The National Alliance for Supporting the Legitimacy, comprising over 30 Islamist groups including the Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, said "the statement of Sisi is considered an explicit call for a civil war and the alliance holds him responsible for the bloodshed of Egyptians."

The remarks came in response to an earlier statement by Sisi on Wednesday calling Egyptians to take to the streets on Friday to authorize the army and police to tackle any potential violence.

Sisi also stressed that the roadmap outlined by the army after toppling Morsi "can't be undone."

The alliance said Sisi's statement was "inciting violence" and showed a state of disorder and confusion on part of those "who carried out the coup."

"Our uprising is peaceful, it will remain peaceful and no one will be able to drive us away from our peacefulness," Morsi's supporters reaffirmed in the statement.
