The first democratically elected, former president of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi’s death should be regarded as state-orchestrated murder, according to Khalid Hilal from the international movement of Students Against the Coup. Hilal says that Morsi’s death has been the culmination of years of neglect and symbolises the death of an era in Egypt.

“We’d absolutely call it murder,” said Hilal.

“What has happened with Mohamed Morsi over the course of the past six years has been a very slow death…a premeditated, slow killing of the legitimate president of Egypt.”

“Over the last six years, Dr Morsi complained several times about his health and being denied crucial medical care. Dr Morsi suffered from high blood pressure and he was diabetic. The most basic medical attention was not given to him, despite several requests during the court proceedings.”

“It was done systematically – it was a part of their goal and agenda to kill Dr Morsi and they achieved that last night.”

Hilal stated that the death of former president Morsi is indicative of the brutality of the current Egyptian regime and reflects the regime’s attitude toward the people of Egypt. Hilal also says that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) share responsibility for Morsi’s death.

“Unfortunately, that’s just the nature of this brutal military regime. If they do not care to give the most basic medical attention to the legitimate president of Egypt, that should tell you a lot about their attitude toward the common people of Egypt.”

“Were it not for Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s support and funding of the coup [The 2013 Egyptian coup d’état], the coup would not have been sustainable up until now. Saudi and the UAE have played a very big role in the establishment of the current military regime and in upholding its power. We hold them directly responsible for the death of Dr Mohamed Morsi.”

The passing of former president Morsi is symbolic of the death of hope and democracy in Egypt, according to Hilal.

“Dr Mohamed Morsi was the first democratically elected president of Egypt. He represented a new era of hope for most Egyptians and for most of the Arab countries around the world. By killing him, they wish to put an end to this era and hope.”

“Sisi’s [President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi] regime’s attempt at killing Dr Mohamed Morsi is [an attempt] to kill the will of the Egyptian people.”

  1. I am glad that someone at least had the courage to voice his thoughts on the murder of President Mohammed Morsi. Firstly the heading of the article in my view is incorrect. It suggests that Egypt is a democracy which it is not. The fact is, Egypt is a militaristic state where the military is the de facto government.

    This all changed in 2012 when Mohammed Morsi was democratically elected as its first democratically elected President. Since he was elected by democratic process he could only be removed by the laws of Egypt governing sitting presidents. Since this process was by passed in my view he was until his death still the legitimate President.

    The usurper of the Presidency, the traitor Abdel Fattah el Sisi, was parachuted in as the new president through the efforts of some serious players like the USA’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) on this planet whose governments & dictators underwrite terrorism according to their own warped understanding of democracy.

    The existence of these paramilitary shadowy groups operate outside of the laws of US government and have the power to kill high value targets or groups in any country that differ with their nationalist policies. They have the capability to remove a government and replace it with a new government that align with the interest of the USA and its allies. Their budgets run into $billions.

    I suspect that the United States government, Tel Aviv, Riyadh and the other Gulf States had a direct hand in causing the chaos in Egypt to pave the way for an overthrow of President Morsi and had him replace with El Sisi.

    Because President Morsi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood which was considered the largest and best organised political force who opposed military dictatorship in Egypt he became a direct target of the US government and its allies.

    Today President Morsi is dead because of governments who will not accept dissent amongst its citizens and prefer to murder them.
