In a fresh swipe at opponents, the Muslim Brotherhood said they would not let opposition “derail path to democracy."

“The Egyptian people will defend their democratic choice and will not let opposition to derail path to full democracy through intimidation and violence,” the group said on its English Twitter feed.

“If opposition is seeking change, only way to do it through ballot box and earning people trust in upcoming elections, so far they've failed miserably.”

Stop using the word "democracy"
The Muslim Brotherhood should come clean and admit that democracy has no place in its constituent articles and in the Islamic doctrine. Arabic culture is still driven by religion, mainly Islam. Western culture has excluded religion from state affairs. Both can co-exist peacefuly if they are transparent and tolerant of each other.
