Egypt's key political and religious leaders have taken a step towards ending the political crisis and the wave of violent protests that rocked the country in recent days.

In a document signed Thursday (January 31st) under the auspices of Al-Azhar, representatives of all political parties and movements, pledged to renounce violence and start a serious national dialogue.

The document calls for "renouncing violence in all its forms, condemning it unequivocally, criminalising it nationally and banning it religiously".

It also highlights "the sanctity of human life, public and private property and the unambiguous separation between political action and acts of sabotage", condemning the incitement, condoning, promotion, defence or exploitation of violence in any way.

Political leaders also pledged to promote "a serious dialogue and a culture of agreeing to differ and respect of pluralism", according to the document.

"Resorting to violence, inciting violence, staying silent about violent acts, slandering the other side, spreading rumours or character assassinations, and defaming entities active in the public sphere are all considered moral crimes everyone must avoid", it said.

Document signatories included the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, the opposition National Salvation Front, youth groups, independents and church leaders.

All parties promised to adhere to peaceful political means, to educate their members on this principle and to reinforce and propagate a culture of peace.

Document welcomed

"The document criminalises all forms of physical and verbal violence as well as incitement and exploitation of violence," said April 6th Youth Movement co-ordinator Ahmed Maher, who signed the agreement.

It emphasises "the sanctity of the Egyptian citizen and the obligation to respect state security institutions, which are there to protect the dignity and humanity of Egyptians", he told Al-Shorfa.

Senior Al-Azhar clerics and advisers worked alongside various political forces to create the document, Maher said, while Coptic Pope Tawadros II also supported the initiative and called for its adoption.

In an official statement, the presidency welcomed the move, calling for a national dialogue among the political powers.

Former parliamentarian Mustafa al-Najjar, who signed the document, told Al-Shorfa it gives Egyptians the genuine opportunity to renounce violence and pave the way for a national dialogue that treats the underlying causes of tension and ends bloodshed while protecting rights.

The youth of the revolution will take "every effort to join any initiatives for dialogue in an attempt to resolve the current political crisis, so long as it is based on peace and the renunciation of violence which are the goals of the January 25th Revolution", he said.

The Al-Azhar document follows clashes involving protests and security forces last week that killed at least 50 people and wounded hundreds, according to the Egyptian Ministry of Health.

The Egyptian government declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew in three provinces in the Suez Canal area, including Port Said, where the majority of deaths occurred, Suez and Ismailia.

On Friday, demonstrations continued as thousands gathered in Tahrir Square demanding amendments to the new constitution.

    I swear that Egypt will never rise again as long as the souls are filled with hatred among the Muslims and the long distances between them even in the prayers, the one sits next to his brother but he does not approve his prayer and vice versa. As for Hosni Mubarak, he was arrogant and tough against the USA and Israel. All what was happening was no more than an internal fight among the Muslims and the Christians and he used to visit the USA often. Will Muhammad Mursi keep away from the USA, Israel and the west? This will never happen. So, where is the religion, Islam and these empty slogans in the name of the religion? We are all moderate Muslims as the Prophet, peace be upon him, commanded us to be. Mursi rules today with his tribe and this does not befit Egypt and its great Muslim and Christian people. I an afraid for the people because they all raise doubts about the religion and they do not know whom they should follow? The people who claim to be the religion advocates do not honor their promises. What Mubarak could not do to the USA and Israel would be implemented by Muhammad Mursi and this is certain. We will see this happening and history will record what I am saying.

    Of course, I am with the national dialogue between all political forces without the preconditions of National Salvation Front, because the dialogue means that both parties have the intention to offer mutual concessions to reach a compromise satisfactory to all parties. The basic objective should always be the interests of the people of Egypt and Egypt. I wish that the dialogue would be broadcast live on television so that all people know the true enemies of Egypt. All demonstrations must stop until negotiations are over. This initiative will deprive the enemies of Egypt from any opportunity to achieve their goals to sabotage Egypt and divide its people. The dialogue is the base of democracy, but the ongoing strikes, demonstrations, and mess serve the enemies of Egypt. Vandalism, destruction, and humiliation of all State symbols do not represent democracy but they represent impoliteness. I hope the police would not leave those who commit arson and sabotage government interests go unpunished. They should search for those who stand behind those criminals even if an agreement is reached by all the political forces. Those are saboteurs, not revolutionaries because the real revolt never destroys his homeland.

    It’s a shame for Al-Azhar and its reputation to welcome one of the greatest enemies of the Islamic Ummah whose hands are tainted with the blood of the Syrian, Yemeni and other peoples. Isn’t there any self-respect left? Don’t they fear the reaction of nations to them welcoming a criminal to a place that once had its status? If you do not feel shame, then do whatever you wish. I am befuddled.

    All that is currently taking place in Egypt is wrong and all of us are really looking for the interest of Egypt. Thus, the party which is able to protect Egypt and restore its security deserves to assume power. Yet, those who cannot care for nothing but power, they will not keep it for a long time. He added: "I really hope to visit President Mubarak and his sons in their prison but there are some difficulties in obtaining the visit permits and the like but they will be resolved soon." He added: "We must admit that the most beautiful days we lived and saw in our lives were in the era of Mubarak and his sons, such as the entity of the Egyptian team and the stadiums, travels, hotels and everything." He went on: "I will not be ashamed to express my opinion. Who among us did not wish to meet President Mubarak?"

    The tape memories returned to the time before Setback of June (1967) when the Syrian army was tired of coups. The qualified Syrian officers at that time were wanted, and some of then were executed, imprisoned or killed and the rest of them were appointed as ambassadors and other administrative positions. With regard to the Egyptian army, its conditions were not better... we also should not forget the Israeli espionage networks which used to send their reports on all conditions in Egypt and Syria. We are facing the same situation today, as planning is underway to undermine the Egyptian army, (I hope that I am wrong). After that, Israel can play as it wishes in any Arab State. This outlook is not pessimistic but realistic.

    Hamdeen didn’t get angry about the 23 girls who were raped in Tahrir Square while he got angry and even attacked the police verbally because of the dragged man. This is because they are from his supporters and he is afraid of enraging them if he denounces them since they might not come back again and his demonstrations will not be attended by anyone. What a great democracy and greetings to the Egyptian "Ruin Font." Congratulations to you, Hamdeen, for the popularity and the new film.

    O man! This is impoliteness! I swear if one of the companions of our Prophet came to rule Egypt now, they would not let him work; they would insult and abuse him! Why don't they let the man work! He keeps travelling to all countries, begging projects for us to help us work! We keep talking and abusing and throwing Molotov cocktails. It is a shame! For your knowledge, if Mohamed Morsi left, there would be no legitimacy in the country, because he was elected by the people, whether we like it or not. Earlier, when the people elected the Parliament members, the judges framed laws and dissolved it. Now, the opposition also wants to overthrow the President who was elected by the people. If Morsi left, the country would be ruined, because the Islamists will not allow this to happen; they succeeded in putting one of themselves on the seat. The problem is that we are the poor side, and we want to work and live. God is our supporter and best helper against anyone who wants to ruin Egypt for his own interests!

O beware, Egyptians, O writers, O physicians, O professors, don't ruin Egypt.

    Nasser was right to reject the idea of the Islamic Cooperation Organization as a plan to set up an Islamic Alliance, because Islam is opposed to alliances! Today, there is an existing organization, and what did it accomplish? Nothing! Just conferences and too much disbursement! We don't expect to see it someday confronting any problem that Muslims are exposed to! The last problem was in Myanmar, where Muslims were slaughtered by the government forces. Obama went to Myanmar, not to urge the government to have mercy on this Muslim minority, but to thank them for this democracy in this communist state!

    If it is true that the Muslim Brotherhood will control the joints of the state, so what about the muscles? I think that all the honorable patriotism must overlook all the disagreements to work seriously and keep away from the trivial statements and content in the mass media. Those who love their country must work and help it rather than stopping work through the sit-ins and banditry.

    The Egyptians pay the price of all the current developments. Are you happy? Is this what is required? Do you prefer to sacrifice the people to achieve the alleged freedom? Where is the land of virtue and justice on earth? No one listens to our distress calls. No one hears anything on a land that embraces death. I live in completely strange days. I have lost all hopes in getting rid of the darkness that is crawling into the homes. We are waiting for the light of the dawn soon after the floods of blood and pain. Please, have mercy upon the citizens in their houses and stop this destruction and pain. Please, have mercy upon Egypt, your motherland, form this destruction and chaos. Where is the way of light, which will replace the darkness of the minds and houses? Where are the brave people who speak and advocate the truth in a time when the voice of the oppressed is strangled and lost? Long live free Egypt. Down with all the tyrants and death to all oppressors.

    Some people in the Muslim world became Muslims only in the official papers without having any Islamic creed. Allah The Almighty Said (what means): {And there is not a beast in the earth but the sustenance thereof depend on Allah. He knoweth its habitation and its repository. All is in a clear Record.} The Prophet, peace be upon him, also said that Allah The Exalted revealed to him that no soul would die before receiving its full sustenance. Therefore, the Prophet, peace be upon him, ordered us to fear Allah The Almighty and not seek provision using unlawful means. According to the honorable verse and hadith, committing suicide certainly means that one’s creed is weak. Hence, the scholars have a great responsibility to strengthen the creed of the people in order to protect their lives.

    The Egyptian people did not violate the peacefulness of the demonstrations on the first day in front of Al-Ittihadiya Palace. However, the Muslim Brotherhood does not want any demonstrations. Hence, the Muslim Brotherhood organized counter demonstrations on the first time, but after that, their presence wasn't explicit; they planted their elements among the demonstrators.

    President Mursi and Guide’s deputy Khairat Al-Shater have not learnt the lesson from the fall of the tyrannical regimes. It is wrong to repeat the same mistake and adopt the same strategy against the demonstrators. The military council tried to use force after assuming power, but it failed.

    I join the officials who call for dialogue, because we actually need such national dialogue; enough with the chaos and indifference. Egypt is no longer stable; the people are divided among themselves, and it has become difficult. We all can't find a suitable solution that will help us out of the neck of the bottle, where we are stuck. I believe that each normal citizen must be aware that he is the means to keeping peace in Egypt, and this does not mean that he has to take a gun and look for thieves. No, I mean that he has to stay away from all incidents that might drag him into violence, because any violence or quarrels will lead Egypt to a bad destiny. This destroys Egypt and we all have seen for the past two years that we were unable to fix and rebuild it. All we were able to do was to make President Hosni Mubarak step down, and then we made a bigger mistake and elected Mohammed Morsi as President!

    We have to deal with Al-Nour's statements carefully, because their ideas do not differ from the ideas of the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Nour's statements are merely part of the electoral campaign and they do not differ from the Muslim Brotherhood. I hope to listen to the statements of Makhyoun in the parliament during the events of Mohammed Mahmoud. Yunus Makhyoun, the president of Al-Nour Party, stressed at that time that all the religious parties adopt the same religious beliefs and the same political and social ideas, and that they only differ in means. Hence, I hope that you should not be deceived again. Dr. Makhyoun is one of the hawks of Al-Nour Party.

    We welcome any call for dialogue, but we don’t understand why ElBaradei called for a dialogue with President Morsy that is attended by the Ministers of Interior and Defense. What is the point of involving the military in the meeting? "Hammad" added that the call for dialogue must be addressed to the presidency and political parties only. As for the executive authority, including the "Ministries of Interior and Defense," it is represented and headed by Dr. Mohamed Morsy.

    Morsy must yield to the demands of the opposition and the public for the sake of Egypt’s greater good and in order to protect the nation. He should give the priority for the nation’s interest rather than the interest of his group. He should let go of his ego and lordliness, otherwise he will be toppled soon.

    Ayman Nour “Fame is my companion”: When the Muslim Brotherhood come under pressure they say we will have a national dialogue, and the strange thing is that Ayman Nour is the first one to refuse any dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood, and as soon as they announce their desire to engage in dialogue, we find him the first in line. Jamila Ismail: Now she is with Wael Al-Abrashi, and in front of her is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood which they brought from the top to the bottom, and the man can’t even talk :) The question is then!!!

    Neither the Muslim Brotherhood nor the secularists.. We should not separate religion from the state, and if we want Egypt to be like the time of the Prophet, it is necessary for Egypt to be ruled by a religious scholar that is righteous and a Shura council comprised of Al-Azhar scholars who appoint him to govern by the Book of Allah and the Sunna of the Noble Messenger. And there will be no opposition from the Egyptian public, because those in suits and ties are all fakes and after their own selfish interests.

    Which revolution's goals are you trying to achieve exactly? You have already said that you do not have anything to do with the revolution. You said that the revolution is a sin and that the disobedience of the ruler is a sin, too. The true revolutionaries are sheltered in tents exposed to the bitter cold. During the revolution, Mohamed Morsi, the current president of Egypt, said: “We will not support those childish demonstrators”. O Morsi, those few dependents helped you to succeed to power. Those dependents will also guide you to the straight path. Otherwise, your downfall will be inevitable. Whenever the opposition calls for mass demonstrations you claim that it is time for hard work. Whenever the proponents of the regime demonstrate you call the event “a religious duty”.

    We have nothing to do but getting rid of a legitimate President who has not practiced legitimacy on his people. He has rather adopted the face of Mubarak so that Mohamed Morsi’s acts will be blissful while his era is worse than the days of Mubarak. The bad treatment of demonstrators from the part of the Police has been worse than the days of Habib Adli. Therefore, we have to overthrow this President who lost his legitimacy. The President who favors a group over the people who have elected him must get his just punishment from the part of a people who is able to oust him in the same way they ousted Mubarak two years ago. It is really enough for the premeditated and systematic violations of women from the part of the fascist regime. It is also enough that more than fifty people were murdered since January 25. We have witnessed a week of murder, humiliation and dragging protesters under the leadership of Mohamed Morsi who is no longer a President and we have to get rid of him. We will not have other Fridays except salvation.

    The Egyptian army must intervene before the Brotherhood runs out of patience. In fact, all the honest Egyptians are ready to defend the riches, the honor and the image of Egypt, represented by the President Palace. Indeed, the President was elected by the people. I have never seen patient people such as Morsi and his group. They claim that they are defending the freedom of opinion. In fact, they are vandals carrying out organized crimes. They receive support from the election losers, the remnants and foreign parties to spoil the revolution and destroy Egypt.

Allah has to see (for the purpose of reward and punishment) who are the truthful and who are the liars.[3] [The Spider]. Thus, you should be patient and Allah will grant you victory, God willing.

    Dialogue is always welcome if it lays the foundations of democracy and a peaceful transfer of power, renouncing violence and stating the rule of law; but if it is outside this frame, then it is not dialogue. It is the establishment of a state of chaos, because all we see is the result of the minority rejecting the results of democracy. This is the root of the disease; that is why we call on the leadership of the army to defend the people's choice and to make it a red line, so as not to lose control of things, and so that Egypt does not enter into endless conflicts, God forbid. I appeal to God to save and protect Egypt, because it is the only hope for us Arabs!

    Engineer Abul-Ela Madi, head of Al-Wasat Party, mentioned that President Morsy briefed them on the security condition and stated that most civilian and police casualties were due to criminal gangs that were planning to overthrow the regime. He explained that military aircrafts have spotted such gangs and took footage of them while they were atop of a number of buildings and shooting at civilians and policemen with live ammunition. He noted that the curfew and declaration of state of emergency are aimed at spotting these groups. The latter are against the revolution and they belong to the former regime. They are also the ones who plotted to overthrow the government and breakdown the foundation stones of the Egyptian government.

    The patriots who really love Egypt are expected to calm the situation. God willing, the beginning of the dialogue and the initiative of al-Azhar will work much better than they were expected, God willing. Perhaps the parties will agree and reach a compromise to improve the relationship between the opposition and the Government, represented by the President of the Republic. The talks are expected to remove the iceberg separating the two parties. Eventually, the Egyptian public opinion would realize that the protests had claimed the lives of a huge number of people in the previous period, especially in the cities of Cairo, the Suez Canal and Alexandria. We hope that the disputing parties will reach an agreement in order to restore safety and security. The Egyptians must stop the bloodshed now. I think that the political parties had better hold negotiations in offices than in the media. The hot debates in public would lead to the aggravation of the situation rather than compromises and agreements. The escalation in streets and the increase of the number of the dead in different areas of the Arab Republic of Egypt are attributable to such debates.

    There is a question that the members of the Brotherhood might not be able to answer. Are you really liars? If the answer is no, so why are you killing the righteous people who are protesting against you? Do they really believe that they could keep lying forever without being exposed someday? Is this possible? They might have enough courage to admit that they are true liars. Then, they would become discouraged. They would also resort to false justifications using such lies as “a virtue of necessity”. In fact, this is a corrupt legitimacy rule which leads to the legalization of the wrongfulness. Therefore, they push the people towards corruption under the pretext of “legitimate by virtue of necessity”. This is fraud and lying in the name of religion, God forbid. You are resorting to lies in the name of faith and piety and under the pretext of religion. Islam has nothing to do with such illegitimate claims even though you had succeeded through lies. Do not pretend that you are subjected to a conspiracy. Indeed, you are only reassuring yourselves and begging the sympathy of the masses. The masks are removed and the Egyptians and the international community as a whole have discovered your evil nature. You do not seem to hesitate to burn the homeland through fanning sedition in order to retaliate.

    I am personally not confident that any of the political forces could take control of the violence in Egypt since everyone is witnessing what is happening every day in the country. In fact, Friday has become a very difficult day for us and everyone is trying to bring as much first aid as possible in order to rescue himself if he is affected by the violence in the country. We are really sorry for Egypt since there are victims every day. In fact, we do not know how we will benefit from the events which are taking place. Every day, we are humiliated whether in Tahrir Square or a place nearby. For instance, if we examine what is happening in the Qasr al-Ittihadiyah, we will really feel sorry for our country and I have nothing to do except express my opinion hoping that my point of view will benefit even one of the people so that he will not participate in any demonstrations. Indeed, I would like to express my opinion concerning the national dialogue which political leaders are calling for. As far as I am concerned, we have to start a national dialogue between all the fronts of people given that we are aware that the Egyptian people are divided into different sections, parties and fronts. In this respect, as if each party wants a particular president and instead of one president in Egypt, every sect of Egyptian people is expected to have its own president, Government and ministers in order to improve the conditions of the country. In this respect, instead of being one large republic, Egypt will be divided into sects. What I am saying is really very imaginary and impossible to take place but I am saying it in order to ridicule people. Therefore, I pray Allah that this document will get rid of violence acts in the country thanks to the unity of the opposition with the other political parties.

    Saad Al-Katatni was clear when he was serving as the speaker of the parliament. He said expressly that the Muslim Brotherhood would not apply the sharia, (because time is always unsuitable), but they insist that Islam is the solution. Hence, they will provide no solution to any problem because they do not intend to apply the sharia. According to statements of Al-Katatni and Morsi himself, Egypt will not be a religious (Islamic) state. Hence, there is no difference between the Muslim Brotherhood, the nationalists, the secularists, and the Wafd Party. The Muslim Brotherhood did not provide anything in the parliament and their performance was weak and lower that the expected level. The performance of Morsi is weak and reluctant. He is afraid of the military council, Israel and his Prime Minister Hisham Qandil is weak.

    We call on all the Egyptians to stand as one man as Muhammad Abu Salim said in Al-Arad film. Egypt is about to be lost because of the competition over the positions, especially the presidency. The people freely chose an elected president, but the spiteful people did not like that. The success of the Egyptian revolution would mean the success of all the revolutions that would erupt from ocean to gulf. Egypt is the strong foundation of the Arab world. Hence, if it became strong and if the revolution succeeded, the Egyptian economy will improve. Thus, they insist on preventing the Egyptian revolution from succeeding. The success of the Egyptian revolution will destroy many countries. This is the source of the turbulences and troubles. They will fight Egypt and the Egyptian revolution using some Egyptians and even some of those who led the revolution. This is what is happening right now. You can consider the statements of Hamdin, ElBaradei, and Sayyed Al-Badawi against the elected president as if they are those who appointed him. Egypt is a trust in the hands of all partners of the revolution. Fear God as to Egypt.

    Apparently, all the political powers have submitted and realized that they cannot face Mursi. Therefore, they are going to accept the dialogue after Mursi insisted on his stance. He only listens to his own opinions and his Guide. Thus, I can frankly say that there is no opposition in Egypt. They are a group of chorus. They are weak as proved by the fact that none of them can go to the square and face the people. They are wrong and many people do not like the impolite opposition. We expect better reactions than the current ones.

If anyone else were in his place, he would have relieved himself and left the country to escape from this fierce war on him and the swamp of corruption where all the unsuccessful Egyptian politicians have fallen. May God help Egypt and thanks to Dr. ElBaradei. This is your destiny and your rule given your great status and experience. Please, endure all this for the sake of your home and people.

    Can we ask ourselves, if the Muslim Brotherhood had been honest in their statements and promises, the people would have showed some patience with Morsi? However, the youth who made the revolution and who lost many of them deserve much better than what is happening in the country. Morsi must have realized this, but unfortunately, he was not honest with his people. Hence, their reality appeared and if you asked any reasonable person in Egypt, he would say the same thing. If Morsi had loved Egypt and feared for it, he should have realized this fact and resigned. He and his group is the cause of all what is happening in Egypt. But, do you think that Morsi Al-Ayyat is the person would could think in this way? Please, think a little and tell me.

    I appeal to all the Egyptians who love Egypt to protect their country and its people, who suffered terribly under the rule of the deposed president. O God! Protect this country, and destroy all those who want to loot this country from the retinue of the deposed president in the NDP. All their properties and money must be confiscated and these are the revolutionary decisions. These decisions would make them an example to those who might think of doing as they did. We ask God to help and support the president, because his assumption of this office is a divine destination. We ask God to help you and to protect the beloved Egypt.
