Is the Muslim Brotherhood banned? ‘No … maybe’

September 26th, 2013
06:26 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

Is the Muslim Brotherhood banned in Egypt?

Earlier this week, an Egyptian court ordered a ban on activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and froze its finances, according to state-run news website EgyNews.

Not so fast, a top adviser ElMostafa Hegazy, political and strategic adviser to the president of Egypt, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday.

“The Muslim Brotherhood as an organization” – Hegazy using air quotes as he said the word – “has never been a legal organization,” he told Amanpour. “It has been only a name, a slogan, that’s called the MBs, but all the time – as you said – they’ve been running as independents under this kind of theme, under this kind of slogan.”

“Maybe,” he allowed, “I would say – in a slogan way of saying it – that they have been a ‘banned organization.’”

When the Egyptian military ousted the elected president, Mohamed Morsy, it was in the name of democracy, which detractors said Morsy had usurped.

Now, months later, a government is in power, but members of the opposition and journalists have been rounded up and arrested – six weeks ago nearly a thousand people were killed when police dispersed their sit-in camps in Cairo.

“Desperate times requires desperate measures,” Hegazy said.

He compared the situation in Los Angeles in 1990s, when after a black man, Rodney King, was brutally beaten by police, violent riots consumed the city.

“We had emergency laws in Los Angeles [at] the time, and we had the National Guard in the street,” Hegazy told Amanpour. “In a way … what happened [in Los Angeles] in a week could have been extended in Cairo for about a month or so.”

Whether or not the comparison has merit, the obvious question is, when will you hold elections?

Hegazy said that a referendum would be held on the constitution “probably the end of the December.”

“Once we have the constitution in place, we will be calling for parliamentary elections in about a week or so,” he said. “And then we start the process of parliamentary elections for another two months or more, so we’re looking at the end of parliamentary elections probably towards the end of March, early April.”

So, Amanpour asked, “do you envision presidential elections next summer?”

“Yeah, pretty much,” he answered.

He blamed criticism of his government on “linear thinking.”

“Wrong thinking?,” Amanopur asked?

“Yeah,” he responded. “I believe so.”

“It’s been portrayed in a certain way, like this is like a tyranny re-establishing itself; this is not the case,” he told Amanpour. “We have a certain security situation that might dictate having a curfew, for instance, as one of the instruments in order to maintain security.”

Journalists and members of the opposition, he said, are free to criticize the government.

“No one is in any way chasing them or detaining them,” he said. “The people that [have] been instigating violence – those are the people in jail.”

One of those people now in jail is Gehad Hedad, a spokesperson for the Muslim Brotherhood who has appeared frequently on Amanpour’s program.

He joins Former President Mohamed Morsy, who is being held in an undisclosed location, saying only that he is “in a safe place.”

Does he have access to lawyers? Amanpour asked.

“I think he does,” Hegazy said.

Are you sure? Amanpour asked.

“I know it,” he answered. “He does.”

The former president will have a civilian trial, Hegazy said, which will commence after an investigation by the “Egyptian judiciary” is complete.

“We have certain faction which is not, I would say, aligned with Egyptians’ view to the future,” he told Amanpour, referring tacitly to the Muslim Brotherhood. “You have a golden opportunity. It’s about time for you to join Egyptians, not the other way around. It’s a golden opportunity that they can capture – that they can seize the moment.”

    Come on Christiane, give us a break... America and Europe are saying that journalists are jailed in Egypt??? Aren't they the same who backed the terrorists fascists Muslim Brotherhood???? And those who put them there by forging the elections and calling morsi an elected president?? Where is your integrity Amanpour??? You definitely lost it along the years.... Moreover, you did not stop interrupting your guest.... since when do you do that???? I would love to write more, but frankly, I lost ALL respect I once had for you... I hope you will post my comment.... Shame on you Amanpour

    To all of my American, European & foreign friends, you might have heard the current situation of Egypt lately, please note that for some political benefits and trends the international media is trying to reflect a deceiving and lying image regarding the Egyptian Army and government, the truth is the Egyptian Army and Police are against a group of terrorist and extremists known as “Islamist Brotherhood” they were always considered as a hostile group of terrorists to all of the word supported by Al Qaada terrorist group, All of the moderate Egyptians Muslims & Christians are against those terrorists and their goals specially after their hostile behavior against civilians, blocking streets, burning hospitals, factories, Churches terrifying people and killing police and army members, on the other hand using Hamas (an armed Palestinian terrorist group) in attacking Egyptian lands on North Sinai, I can’t understand the reaction of the American and European Governments except being totally unfair taking the wrong and evil side, I hope they will realize that what goes around comes around and when you enhance a deadly contagious virus you can easily get affected with it, may God protect Egypt and it’s national loyal army
    …SHARE PLEASE....

    Mr. Higazi of Egypt is not telling the truth. The coup team under the leadership of Gen. Al Sisi have transformed Egypt to a large Camp. No freedom of speech, no fair trials, no peaceful demonstrations. Said team and other beneficiaries are working hard to appoint Al sisi to be president.

    The Muslim Brotherhood won in a fair election. Their President, not the most sagacious and gifted of leaders, true, was deposed by the military in a non coup. Banning the MB would be a retrograde step. The Pharaoh is now out of prison. He may as well be restored to the throne.

      nop, zeft morsi and his mb party did not win the election democratically, the election was tarnished with all sort of election fraud, printing fake ballots were discovered at MB head quarter, stuffing ballot boxes... etc . Buying votes of the poor in exchange for food items. Threatening at gun point or knives non MB supporters in upper Egypt villages . Some Christians villages were not allowed to vote by terrorists from MB

    The Moslem brothers and their terrorists allies refuse to be included within the main Egyptian stream which is wide ,versatile and civil.they want to conquer and oblige the Egyptians into their fanatic Taliban style regime..there is no restriction on journalism ,only the fanatic channels that were asking their followers to kill other Moslems ,calling us infidels,asking to burn churches,rape and kill Copts.please revise only one hour in any of these terrorist channels.

    Good riddance! Egypt needs none of the Islamic Terrorists MB's! We've had enough of their killings and terror!
    They killed a lot of police officers i.e. 180 cops! They burned 77 churches and threatened to kill the Christian Copts
    to the extent that the muslims took them in their houses for safety. Thanks to McCain and Graham defending them...
    these terrorists! Implying a civil war in Egypt will take place if Morsi doesn't get out of jail. God bless the Egyptian people, army and police for giving their life blood to free our country from those terrorists!

    what freedom is Christiana referring too during the era of Morsi, the freedom to destroy Egypt, is that what she is after. The freedom of persecuting the Christian Minority and eliminating the majority of the moderate lovely Muslim Egyptians because they are not part of the MB party. Where has she been, or what freedom is she talking about, the freedom to let the criminals go loose on the streets and terrorize people. What she is standing for and defending?
