Camelia Sadat, Daughter of Late Egyptian President: For Muslim Brotherhood, No Distinction between Koran and the Pistol

Following are excerpts from an interview with Camelia Sadat, daughter of the late Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, which aired on Dream 2 TV on August 23, 2013.

Camelia Sadat: I was interviewed in English on BBC World last week, and I was asked who was responsible for all the bloodshed [in Egypt]. I told him that my father was partly responsible, because he had released [the Islamists] from prison, believing that they could join the fabric of Egyptian society again.

Interviewer: That's a brave thing to say.

Camelia Sadat: But it turned out that he was wrong, when he paid the highest price possible – his life.


Once again they are destroying themselves because of the terrorism within them.

Interviewer: They are destroying themselves? You think that their return to armed terrorism…

Camelia Sadat: Every time, they have destroyed themselves with their terrorism. They will never change. It all starts with the pledge of allegiance to the General Guide. I have read all about their history… How is the pledge performed? They place one hand on the Koran and the other on a pistol. Both at the same time… There is no distinction between the two.
