Prominent Egyptian Salafist Sheikh Yasser El-Borhamy has levelled accusations at Muslim Brotherhood leaders for last August's violent dispersals of the group's two sit-ins in Cairo, saying that they are responsible for the hundreds of their members who were killed by security forces whom "they abandoned".

Speaking in the online "Ana Salafi" forum, a popular Salafist site administered by the Salafist Call, which El-Borhamy co-founded, he said that the Brotherhood encouraged its members to stand "in fake persistence against bullets" at Rabaa Al-Adaweya and Nahda so that their casualties would drive up the public's hatred of the army.

El-Borhamy added that the now-banned group's desperate last stand at the two protest sites had nothing to do with true Islamic jihad.

Describing Egyptian army minister General Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi as a "religious man," El-Borhamy said that it was not possible for the popular army leader to have given a command to kill all the protesters at the sit-ins.

"If it were so," he said, "there would have been tens of thousands of fatalities."

The Salafist forum in which El-Borhamy was speaking provides Islamic sheikhs to answer a variety of religious inquiries.

Shame less
The only word that can be said for this goon and its supporters is "shameless".They are even deserved to be called human beings. Doesn't matter how do you hate MB or its supporter for their religious and political belief,they mistakes but at least they were human being that been slaughtered in day light on Egyptian streets.How shamlessly instead of critizing the thugs and killers the goon is blaming the victoms.These were the dreadfull masscares of eyptian history carried out by the Junta.If you think people wil forget it..you are just fool or blind.Your crimes will always chase you unless justice is done.

No surprise at all!!
El-Borhamy is saying what everyone else already knew..The mb sent their supporters to slaughter just like brain washed sheep..The only thing is their plan backfired, instead of turning the hatred to the army the people of Egypt were & are smart enough to know who really caused the deaths & who keeps causing more chaos & death..the mb!! How long will it be until the mb & their terroristic thugs plant a bomb or find some other way to make El-Borhamy be silent??

Sheikh Yasser El-Borhamy speaks with forked tongue
The Brotherhood didn't "abandon" their members to die, as the Sheik dishonestly states. Rather, they ordered their militia at Rabaa and Nahda to shoot their shotgun pistols and automatic rifles and throw Molotov cocktails at police and troops precisely in order to provoke security forces to fire back in self-defense so that the international media and certain governments (e.g., Germany, Turkey, the U.S., Iran) could then accuse the Egyptian government of carrying out a massacre of unarmed protesters. Then they ordered their militia and supporters to attack and burn churches and government buildings around the country, in supposed revenge. -- Samantha Criscione
