Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - The Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood movement on Friday blasted Egyptian authorities for the crackdown on pro-Mursi egyptian protesters in the past week, accusing the Egyptian authorities of committing "massacres" against the protesters in Cairo and other Egyptian cities.

In a mass demonstration held in front of Al Husseini Mosque in downtown Amman, members of the movement and Jordanians against the so called "military coup" in Egypt raised banners and chanted slogans against the Egyptian official authorities and the crackdown headed by Egyptian Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

A large number of Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders took part in the demonstration, including the MB General Supervisor Hammam Saeed, and his predecessor Salem Falahat, head of the Muslim Brotherhood Shura Council Ali Abu Sukkar, and Secretary General of the Islamic Action Front (IAF), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, Hamzeh Mansour.

Demonstrators chanted slogans against "liberals" and "secularists" in Egypt, blasting their ideology as violent and exclusionist.

They chanted slogans putting al-Sisi on par with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, blasting the two for resorting to killing and military machines to crackdown on opponents.

Demonstrators commended the position of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Recep Erdogan, who stood against the June 30 events, and described what took place as a "military coup." They also hailed his position in calling on the international community and the UN Security council to take action regarding the bloody events in Egypt.

Meanwhile, they also blasted the rulers of Saudi Arabia for supporting the Egyptian military and temporary government formed after deposing president Mohammed Mursi.

On the role of the media in covering the ongoing events in Syria, the Jordanian demonstrators hailed the role of the pan-Arab Qatar-based Al Jazeera network for siding with Pro-Mursi supporters, while they condemned the coverage of the Saudi-funded Al Arabiya network for coverage they deemed supportive of the coup.

The demonstration was organized by the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood movement, and witnessed the participation of hundreds of supporters of "political legitimacy" in Egypt, according to their expression.
