Pro-Morsi demonstrator: "I say to [Egyptian Defense Minister] Al-Sisi: Beware. You have created a new Taliban and a new Al-Qaeda in Egypt. All these masses will split into suicide squads, and will destroy you and Egypt. It will be you who has destroyed Egypt.

"You have created new mujahideen and new martyrdom-seekers. If one out of ten of these people blows himself up in a crowd, it will be your fault. It is you who have created terrorism. You were the first to use terrorism.

"Warn you: Restore things to what they were, or else these masses will blow Egypt up.

"It is you who is starting a civil war in Egypt between Muslims and non-Muslims, between Muslims and secularists. It is you who is starting a civil war between the Muslims and the Shiites. It is you who signed the death certificates of the National Salvation Front and its members, as well as of all the Tamarud rebels, and of those who oppose President Morsi and the legitimacy of the elections.

"I am warning you, Al-Sisi: Either you kill all these people, or they will explode in your face."


Another demonstrator: "I say to Al-Sisi: You dog, who brought you to where you are? It was Morsi who appointed you. I am not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, or anything. I am just a religious Egyptian woman.

"I just want to say one thing to the Christians: You are our neighbors. We will set you on fire."


Another demonstrator: "If the army deploys in order to protest the Egyptians – we support it. But if the army deploys in order to betray Morsi's supporters, we shall all become martyrdom-seekers. We will not back down."
