Jama'a al-Islamiya to propose vigilante committees to Shura Council

Jama'a al-Islamiya to propose vigilante committees to Shura Council | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Jama’a al-Islamiya intends to present a plan for organizing vigilante justice committees to the Shura Council within a few days, said on Thursday Khaled al-Iskandarany, spokesperson for the group’s Construction and Development Party.

The committees would be under the supervision of the National Security Council, the Interior Ministry, the Defense Ministry and the president, ensuring that the citizen justice bodies could not start imposing their own rule of law, Iskandarany assured.

“We suggest the vigilantes of each district should composed be of its residents, have a uniform and wear ID tags,” Iskandarany said, adding that the committees should be funded by the state. He also said the Jama’a al-Islamiya was considering imposing a rule that the vigilantes could not be affiliated to one political party or movement.

Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya forms “unarmed squads” to face outlaws | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Al-Jamaa teams up with 13 other Islamists parties, pursues coordination with Ministry of Interior


Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya is establishing “popular squads” responsible for resolving road blockage peacefully and facing outlaws.

Khaled Al-Sherif, Building and Development Party (BDP) spokesperson, said the “squads” would try to convince those blocking roads to end the blockage in order to ease traffic congestion. The BDP is the political wing of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya.

“The squad members would include a variety of volunteers, not just members from Islamist movements,” Al-Sherif said. He said that 13 other Islamist parties, such as the Al-Fadila, Al-Asala, and Al-Shaab parties, are contributing to the squad. He added that they are trying to convince the Muslim Brotherhood and the Al-Nour Party to join the squads. The squads are expected to be active within weeks.

Al-Sherif denied that the squads would be armed. “Our motto is to fight violence using law,” he said. He stated that the squads would be legal as they are pursuing collaboration with the Ministry of Interior. (Daily news Egypt)

Islamist El-Zomor threatens violence against 'bitter' secularists

Islamist El-Zomor threatens violence against 'bitter' secularists | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya spokesperson Tarek El-Zomor says 'revolutionary Islamists' would fight secularists if President Morsi is deposed 'illegitimately'

Tarek El-Zomor has threatened to use violence if President Morsi is forced from power.

“The voice of violence shall prevail above everything else,” said El-Zomor, official spokesperson of Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya's Construction and Development Party, in a statement released on Thursday.

El-Zomor’s threat comes before nationwide protests scheduled for 25 January to celebrate the second anniversary of Egypt's revolution.

He said that he was ready to fight any opponents of the Islamist current.

President Morsi was elected and can only be removed via the ballot box at the next presidential election in 2016, he added.

“If the president is forced out of power through illegitimate means, the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known to be peaceful, would have to step aside for revolutionary Islamists to fight the anarchists and secularists,” El-Zomor said.

“In this case, martyrdom will be the least we can offer to fight the communists, secularists and Nasserists,” he said. “They are jealous of the Islamists and their Islamic project.”

In south Egypt, fears over Islamist vigilantes

In south Egypt, fears over Islamist vigilantes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Gamaa Islamiya once waged a bloody insurgency here, attacking police and Christians in a campaign to create an Islamic state. Now a political force, the former jihadis say they are setting up their own parallel police and are determined to ensure law and order in this southern Egyptian province.

 

Their declaration has set in motion a spiral of tensions in Assiut province, raising fears that hard-line Islamists who call for a strict version of Shariah, or Islamic law, will take the law into their own hands, threatening the delicate sectarian balance of Muslims and Christians here. Opponents warn that if they succeed here, hard-liners elsewhere in Egypt will try to take advantage of the country's lawlessness to increase their power.

He added that the squads are armed only with simple tools for self-defense. “We have phone numbers to report thuggery and banditry,” he said. “We help the police restore order.”

Jama'a al-Islamiya seeks Islamist alliance outside of main parties

Jama'a al-Islamiya seeks Islamist alliance outside of main parties | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Jama'a al-Islamiya will not join forces with the two most prominent Islamist parties — the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party and the Nour Party — and is instead mulling an alliance of smaller groups for upcoming parliamentary elections, a group leader said Monday.

Members of Jama'a al-Islamiya's Construction and Development Party are expected to convene Monday to discuss the prospects for an Islamist alliance that would include the Fadila, Asala, Watan and Islamic parties, group leader Tarek al-Zomor said.

Islamic Party Secretary General Mohamed Abu Samra said the Freedom and Justice Party and President Mohamed Morsy's performance have disappointed Islamists.

He said his party is engaging in negotiations to form an alliance that will counter secular efforts with Jama'a Islamiya, the Watan Party and the Hazemoun, supporters of former Salafi presidential candidate Hazem Salah Abu Ismail.

The FJP and the Nour Party together controlled a majority in the previous Parliament before the lower house was dissolved last year, when a court ruled its election unconstitutional. The Islamist parties also dominate the upper house, the Shura Council, which holds temporary legislative powers until a new lower house is elected.

FJP leaders have said the party expects to take an outright majority of seats in the next vote.

No date has been set for elections, which are expected this spring.

National dialogue doomed to fail, predicts former Jama'a al-Islamiya leader

National dialogue doomed to fail, predicts former Jama'a al-Islamiya leader | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Next week’s national dialogue between President Mohamed Morsy’s administration and opposition political forces is not likely to succeed, predicted former Jama’a al-Islamiya leader Nageh Ibrahim.

"Each party wants to impose its conditions before engaging in dialogue, and the administration can no longer guarantee the success of the dialogue. There are alternative institutions that enjoy neutrality, like Al-Azhar," he said on Friday.

"Al-Azhar had an active role in uniting the dispersed opposition during the transition period," Ibrahim pointed out.

Ibrahim told the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Gareeda that he hoped the Armed Forces would remain out of the national dialogue.

"I prefer that the Armed Forces keep away from the political game, so as not to be involved in taking one side against the other, and to be dedicated to their fundamental role — defending national security," he said.

"I predicted this violent situation,” Ibrahim continued, “as the situation in general was not reassuring after the Arab Spring revolutions, especially with the spread of the phenomenon of political violence and weapons, as well as the emergence of groups that adopt violence like the Black Bloc, in addition to the culture of non-acceptance of [differences].The Arab Spring countries have become flaccid and weak, and cannot apply the law."

Black Bloc must die, say Jihad and Jama'a al-Islamiya

Black Bloc must die, say Jihad and Jama'a al-Islamiya | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
The Islamist party of the Jihad Organization and Jama'a al-Islamiya has said the ways of dealing with banditry specified in the Quran must be applied to Black Bloc members, which means they must be killed.
Egypt-actus's insight:

“God orders us to kill, crucify or cut off the hands and feet of those who spread mischief on earth,” said Jama'a al-Islamiya Mufti Abdel Akhar Hammad, citing a verse from the Quran. “The president must give that order.”

Mohamed Samra of the Jihad Organization said that the Black Bloc group is financed from abroad and must be killed, and that the National Salvation Front members must be arrested and charged with incitement to riot.

Last week, Cairo witnessed the first appearance groups describing themselves as the Black Bloc. Decked in black and wearing masks, they clashed with police forces at Qasr al-Aini Street on Thursday. They said they would fight with the police if it targeted protesters. Previously unknown, the Black Bloc's goals remain unclear and its members generally avoid media contact.

Officials from the Muslim Brotherhood and state-run media have accused the group of violence, including attempting to set the presidential palace on fire, attacking the Brotherhood's headquarters, looting government institutions, blocking the railways and exchanging fire with security forces.

However, it is still unclear to what extent the Black Bloc has played a role in any of the violent incidents reported over the past few days, or if they are actually armed. The group is a largely unknown one whose motives remain unclear, and its members generally refuse to speak to the media.

Jama'a al-Islamiya forming large Islamist coalition, but won't include FJP

Jama'a al-Islamiya forming large Islamist coalition, but won't include FJP | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Freedom and Justice Party is planning to run independently in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and would only ally with other Islamist parties in certain constituencies, Jama'a al-Islamiya leader Safwat Abdel Ghany claimed at a rally on Thursday.

Egypt-actus's insight:

Jama'a al-Islamiya and its political arm the Construction and Development Party, on the other hand, hope to form a large Islamist coalition, said Abdel Ghany, who is the head of the Construction and Development Party bloc in the Shura Council.

The Construction and Development Party has so far met with the Salafi Nour Party, the Watan Party, the Wasat Party, the Asala Party and a number of revolutionary youth coalitions that support the "Islamic project," Abdel Ghany continued.

An Islamist alliance comprised of several political parties should emerge in the coming days, he said, adding: "We need a Parliament that preserves Sharia, and we hope to have one single list for Islamists in the upcoming elections."
