In his last appearance, the head of the Egyptian regime, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, hinted at his willingness to reconcile with the Muslim Brotherhood, which he classifies as “terrorist” on conditions.
In response to Sisi’s statements and insinuations, the prominent leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Youssef Nada, said today, Tuesday, that the door is open for dialogue with the “presidency of the Egyptian regime,” and it is spoiled by setting preconditions.
This came in Linda’s message, entitled “Egypt to where?”, published by Anadolu Agency, in response to references by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, on Saturday, about the Brotherhood.
No statement was issued by the Brotherhood regarding Nada’s message, but Brotherhood sources told the agency that the message is expected to be published on the group’s pulpits later on Tuesday.

And on Saturday, Sisi said, live on air, at a meeting to launch a national strategy for human rights in the country for the first time: “Society over the past 90 and 100 years has been imbued with a specific thought,” referring to the age of thought of the Brotherhood, which was founded in 1928.
He added: “I am not different with these Prime Time Zone, but on the condition that they respect my path and do not intersect with me and do not target me .. I will accept his idea, but he does not impose it on me, and does not pressure me with it, not me as a person, but on Egypt and society.”
Project “National Human Rights Strategy”
Commenting on Sisi’s statements, Youssef Nada said in his letter: “Many questions were posed by the media talk of the head of the Egyptian regime on the occasion of the announcement of the (National Human Rights Strategy) project.”
Nada added: “The whole world knows that the Brotherhood has not imposed its ideology on anyone for the past 90 years.”
He stressed that “the conviction in this thought was the motive for serving the nation, giving and giving to its Prime Time Zone, and being patient with the adversities and grievances that have occurred and fallen upon its members throughout its history, a calculation for God alone, Glory be to Him.”
He continued, “Opening a dialogue with the presidency of the Egyptian regime currently, as its message suggests, requires ending the suffering of imprisoned women and men and the suffering of their families so that they do not remain with the new human rights project as if they are bets on patience and bearing its results.”
The Egyptian regime asserts that it does not have political prisoners, and those on trial are subject to the law, rejecting international human rights criticism in this regard.
Transitional Justice Law
In his letter, Nada added: “Let the beginning of the work of the new national strategy (for human rights) be the implementation of what is stipulated in Article 241 of the Egyptian Constitution (issuing the transitional justice law).”
Article 241 states that “the House of Representatives, in its first session after the entry into force of this constitution, is obligated to issue a transitional justice law that guarantees disclosure of truth and accountability, proposing frameworks for national reconciliation, and compensating victims, in accordance with international standards.”
Nada concluded his message, saying: “Our sheets are white, and the homeland is dearer to us than our souls.”

He added, “We have learned in politics that setting preconditions spoils dialogue, so I say that the door is open… and perhaps God will do something after that.”
Since late 2013, Cairo has classified the Muslim Brotherhood as a “banned terrorist group,” and most of its cadres and leaders, including General Guide Mohamed Badie, have been imprisoned for sentences related to “terrorism and incitement,” charges that the group usually denied.
Who is Youssef Nada, a prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader?
It is rumored about the international Brotherhood leader Youssef Nada that he played many political roles in the Arab and Middle Eastern environments, as some media outlets discussed the role he played in the rapprochement between Tehran and the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as mediating between Iran and Saudi Arabia, as well as in settling disputes between Riyadh and Sana’a, as well as For his efforts to resolve the crisis between the Algerian government and the Salvation Front.
Linda had close relations with a number of leaders and leaders of the countries in which he settled for periods, the most prominent of whom was the King of Libya Idris Al-Senussi, who embraced Nada and granted him a Libyan passport that enabled him to move between the capitals of the world and start his economic journey as a businessman that led him to other countries such as Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
Nada succeeded in being among the elite of businessmen around the world, holding several nationalities, including Italian, Swiss and Tunisian, who had a strong relationship with its first president, Habib Bourguiba, and others.
Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, former US President George Bush Jr. accused Nada of his involvement and his economic institution in financing and supporting those attacks, so that the US Treasury would freeze his various assets and balances, and seize all the financial assets of Al-Taqwa Bank.
Against the background of Bush’s accusations, Nada was subjected to harassment from various countries of the world for fear of describing these countries as sponsoring “terrorists” and was placed under house arrest in Switzerland, where he was investigated by Swiss, Italian and American security services, but no evidence of conviction was proven against him.
In September 2009, the Swiss Foreign Ministry announced that the Security Council had removed Nada’s name from the list of supporters of terrorism, at a Swiss request, as the Swiss public prosecutor was unable to find any evidence of his conviction, and the US administration was unable to provide what it said were evidence incriminating His involvement in supporting terrorism.
