Brotherhood urges Egyptians to stage sit-ins in support of deposed president.

| CAIRO, July 5 (KUNA) -- Supreme Mentor of the Muslim Brotherhood Group Dr. Mohamed Badi' on Friday called on supporters of the deposed president Mohamed Morsi to gather en masse at open-end sit-ins nationwide until reinstatement of Morsi.

In an address to a pro-Morsi mass rally at Rab Al-Adawiya Sq., east Cairo, Badi' said the Egyptian people will take to streets in millions, stick to their right and defend their will peacefully.

He defied the ruling "junta,: saying: "Our peacefulness is stronger than your bullets, tanks and armored vehicles." Referring to the regime of former president Hosni Mubarak, Badi' affirmed that the people were able to topple a corrupt regime in January 25 revolution and that regime would never be able to come back.

He urged for the army not to open fire at peaceful protesters and to side themselves with the people.

"O army of Egypt, your people wait for you. We cover your back and you defend us against foreign enemies," he appealed. He noted that nobody would be able to drive wedges between the army, as a coherent entity, and the Brotherhood as the country's biggest popular force.

The role of the army, after the reinstatement of Morsi, is to protect the borders of the country and the role of the Brotherhood is to conduct substantive dialogue with other political forces in order to forge ahead on the road to prosperity, he added. (end) KUNA 052150 Jul 13NNNN
