Egypt's State Commissioners Authority, a body that advises the government on legal issues, has recommended the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In an announcement on Monday, the Authority also called for the group’s national headquarters in Cairo’s Moqattam to be closed.

The recommendations were made in accordance with Law 84 of 2002, which prohibits non-government organisations and institutions from forming paramilitary groups.

The Authority's recommendations to the government are non-binding.

In March 2013, the Muslim Brotherhood, outlawed since the 1950s, was officially registered as a non-governmental organisation by the Ministry of Social Security.

After the removal of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on 3 July, then minister of social affairs Nagwa Khalil asked whether the Brotherhood’s headquarters had contained weapons and whether there were militias or militant groups linked to the group.

The questions were asked after eight people died on 1 July in clashes at the Brotherhood HQ in Moqattam after dozens of protesters stormed the building.

Several Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie and his deputies Khairat El-Shater and Rashad Bayoumi, appeared at a criminal court on 31 July for allegedly inciting the killing of protesters at the group’s HQ.

seriously, really?
perhaps there were weapons at the MB HQ. But honestly, the first time I read those reports I sooner thought it was just more crap they made up. If MB wanted to use weapons for illegitimate purposes, does anyone really think they would be stupid enough to keep the weapons blatantly in the middle of their headquarters and risk themselves like that? Example from another point of view: if the Ministry of Interior wanted to use agent provocateurs and plant bombs, I doubt they would store the weapons and bombs and bomb materials in the Ministry of Interior's very obvious headquarters or in any obvious government building.

Dissolution of the Moslem Brotherhood
It is high time this is being done, I do not know what the President & Prime minister are waiting for or what more proofs they need! This time should be for good, meaning pursuing their underground cells and bringing to justice it's membership. As I previously suggested on FB and here, good news started with the humiliating depart of the brotherhood supporter Anne Pieterson, then the closing of Al Jazeera network. Now, after the dissolution of the criminal brotherhood, remains prohibiting all faith affiliated political parties and the recall of our ambassador in Turkey! God bless Egypt.

it is ok
egyiptians should start opening their eyes. this is a great lesson for the world to open a new page for a new hystory. congratulations for all of you men and women of egyipt. all praise praise must be credited to the popular power of ground force who came out in millions to stand behind the security team as national true guard to give the legitimacy for positive change. It is a recomended decition to dissolute every organisation who stands not as partner but as rival to the goverment and the militery as the power guard for the running of a nation. The world should ackowledge the affirmity of the egyipt's security force who actually realy stand firm on the popular will of the people. They have prooved it in the case of first revolution agAINST Mubarak and the second revolution against Morsi by first calling the nation should come out of their rooms if realy they want a chenge. We come to believe that if the people did not show themselves in a uncountable number in the street of Egyipt, the millitary force may not have stupidly lay down theyr lives for nothing. In order for a country to stand strong and united they have to acknowledge only one singe security team so that there will be no rival guns.

Outlaw the majority
In the fairest election in Egyptian history, the parliamentary election of 2011, the brotherhood's political arm, the Freedom and Justice party, got 40% of the votes. The even more islamists got 25%. Can anybody explain to me how one can establish a democracy where 65% of the electorate are prevented from expressing their opinion?

Simple
Simple. 65% of the votes for Morsi were obtained by the Brotherhood exchanging cooking oil , sugar and tea for votes from the illiterate poor population. They also terrorized entire Coptic Christian villages and forbid them to go voting. The remainder were voters of General Shafik who thought Morsi was the better of two evils and after all that and the threat to burn Egypt ( as they did ) if he did not win, he won by 0.5%.

objectives
Any country in order to exist must have a strong statehood. All Egyptians and else witness that infidels attack countries with weak statehood. They do not attack countries like North Korea because they are a self-contained nation albeit an enemy. If Egypt does not want to share the fate of Afganistan must control its territory.

Explanation
Let me explain sth to you okay? Mubarak left Egyptians with zero political awareness.. so many people actually wanted to give the Islamists, especially the Muslim Brotherhood, a chance, especially that they promised every five seconds to implement the Islamic Sharia which actually means fairness, social equality and many other things that would have led to the fulfillment of the 2011 uprising's demands and more.. of course their version of Sharia is different that this, and people got to experience it first hand and that's why they lost popularity.. needless to say.. in any fair elections now they will not get 20 percent of the votes they amassed last year!

See the big logic!
The world needs more Islamic democracy, not less. The Western democracies need competition. See the big logic!
