Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood movement refuses to surrender to the intense pressure being brought to bear upon it by the regime headed by Maj. Gen. Abdel Fatah Sisi, who deposed the Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi, in early July.

The Brotherhood's spokesman, Jihad al-Hadad, wrote on his Facebook page that the Muslim Brotherhood's position has not changed and that it continues to demand a full return to the previous constitutional situation.

This includes putting Morsi back in power, a reactivation of parliament and acceptance of the constitution that was approved in a plebiscite.

Al-Hadad stressed that the Brotherhood would not recognize "the traitors who carried out a coup against the leadership," nor would it recognize the functions they are carrying out or their pretense to represent the people. The people, he said, will continue to protest by going out to the streets and squares until their goal is achieved.
