The Middle East Monitor has followed every step of the Egyptian revolution ever since it erupted on 25 January 2011. Our staff have scrutinised very closely the media coverage of the events in Tahrir Square in Cairo and in other towns and cities across the country. Hardly a commentary or analysis has been written without reference to the Muslim Brotherhood. Its past, present and future roles in Egyptian politics have been subjected to serious examination, although many of the commentaries are littered with speculation and unfounded claims.
MEMO has thus compiled and translated in this special file the most recent statements by the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading spokesmen on the movement’s positions on political participation, government, elections, foreign relations and relations with the army.
