40årsdagen for Oktoberkrigen er en dag islamistene gjerne vil eie. Den er symboltung. Men generalene og den provisoriske regjering hadde ikke tenkt å gi dem den sieren. Det kostet 44 mennesker livet, 40 av dem i Kairo.

Brorskapet har et adskillig mer spettet rulleblad enn det NRK og omkringliggende herligheter påstår. – Hovedsakelig ikke-voldelig linje, heter det fra Marienlyst.

Ifølge Brorskapets aktive talsmann Haddad, er 5.000 drept de siste tre måneder. Det er fem gangeren. Disse overdrivelsene gjør at Brorskapet svekker sin sak.

Morsi supporters have said they will be intensifying their demonstrations in the lead-up to Sunday’s 40th anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.

Opponents who back the army have also said they will take to the streets.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Brotherhood sharply criticised the officers behind the overthrow of Mr Morsi, comparing them to Adolf Hitler, the Roman emperor Nero and the Mongol conqueror Hulagu Khan.

It urged Egyptian soldiers to rebel and said it hoped that Sunday would mark a «victory by the people over those who staged a coup against them for personal gain».

On Thursday, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Baroness Catherine Ashton, held talks with armed forces chief Gen Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and interim President Adly Mansour, as well as with religious leaders.

«I got a real sense of everyone really trying to go forward in the right way,» she told reporters afterwards.

A day earlier, a 16-year-old boy was killed in clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents in the Red Sea city of Suez.
