Notwithstanding their colossal failure in trying to “build the nation” over the last year. Not a good sign, but on the other hand what else can Mansour say? The Brotherhood is too large a force in Egypt to dismiss. “President Adly Mansour says Brotherhood ‘part of nation,'” from Egypt Independent, July 4:
Egypt’s new head of state said the Muslim Brotherhood were part of the people and were welcome to help “build the nation” a day after the military overthrew president Mohamed Mursi, the website of the state-run Al-Ahram newspaper reported.
President Adly Mansour made the comments to journalists after being sworn in as the interim head of state at the Supreme Constitutional Court in Cairo.
“The Muslim Brotherhood group is part of this people and are invited to participate in building the nation as nobody will be excluded, and if they responded to the invitation, they will be welcomed,” he said.
