Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Haddad says, “There’s no excuse for me not to step in front of a tank… I’m not going to let my daughter or my son grow up in a country that I didn’t defend until my last breath,” according to Daily Beast correspondent Mike Giglio.
The Muslim Brotherhood rejected an offer to meet with ElBaradei and Egyptian army head al-Sisi earlier today, el-Haddad tweeted earlier, and suggested that the military is trying to impose ElBaredei on the Egyptian people. “Using military might to force an individual on the people of Egypt is unacceptable,” he said.
“The military is not a political actor to negotiate anything. It belongs in the barracks under the leadership of its commander in-chief,” he continued, in a striking display of wishful thinking.
