Army drops flyers on pro-Morsi sit-in, demonstrators will not be harmed
Army assures demonstrators in Rabaa Al-Adawiya that the ouster of Mohamed Morsi was not directed against them, saying they will be safe if they stay or if they leave
Published in Ahram Online on 13 - 07 - 2013

Armed forces helicopters dropped printed flyers on demonstrators gathered at the Rabaa Al-Adawiya sit-in for the reinstatement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, assuring they will not be harmed.
The message spread late Friday was directed to all Islamists, and said “No one in Egypt can doubt your patriotism, belonging and loyalty to this country... these measures taken were not against you nor did it aim at belittling your role in the nation's path.”
“If you wish to leave the sit-in then go ahead, we assure you that if you leave and go home you will not be tracked down ... To those of you who want to stay [at the sit-in] you are safe.”
The army message also urged protesters to remain peaceful and avoid state institutions and security headquarters.
Meanwhile, Muslim Brotherhood leaders remain defiant, insisting their sit-in will not end until all their demands are met.
Deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Essam El-Erian used his Facebook page Friday to reiterate these demands, including the reinstatement of Morsi as president, reinstating the 2012 constitution, the Shura Council and the government.
El-Erian said no roadmap would be accepted except that put forth by Mohamed Morsi, referring to his last speech. Morsi had proposed the creation of a committee to amend certain constitutional articles as a solution to political tension.
“No person, elite group or military institution can impose its will on the people,” El-Erian said.
On 3 July, General Commander Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi removed Morsi from his post as president after millions took the streets in Egypt demanding early presidential elections. Head of the High Constitutional Court Adly Mansour was appointed interim president for the transition period. Mansour issued a constitutional declaration outlining the new roadmap Monday.
Several political figures have called for reconciliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, assuring there will be no exclusion of any political current. Presidential media consultant Ahmed El-Meslmany said the Brotherhood will be offered posts in the new Cabinet that will oversee the transition period until elections.
Leading Brotherhood members have made it clear they will not work with any "usurper government," maintaining their refusal of Morsi's ouster and the subsequent roadmap.
