Most Egyptians are opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to a recent poll.

The Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research Baseera conducted a survey of opinion regarding Egyptians’ assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and the extent of acceptance for their continuation in the Egyptian political scene following the June 30th Revolution and ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi, and in the wake of the dispersals of the sit-ins at Raba’a el Adawiya and Nahda Squares and what followed in terms of large scale violence.

Also solicited was the extent of Egyptians’ acceptance of the Freedom and Justice party (FJP) — the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood — in the upcoming parliamentary elections. Results revealed that 63% of Egyptians do not approve of the FJP’s participation, while 26% do and 12% replied that they could not decide.

Regarding the extent of Egyptians’ satisfaction with the Muslim Brotherhood’s rule compared to expectations they had at the start of their tenure, 78% of respondents replied that the Brotherhood’s rule was worse than they had expected, while 3% felt it had been better than they expected, 12% that it had been as they expected (whether good or bad) and 7% replied that they couldn’t decide.

Regarding the wide-scale violence that came with, and then followed the dispersal of the Pro-Morsi Raba’a and Nahda sit-ins, the survey results indicated that 57% of Egyptians place all the blame for those events on the Muslim Brotherhood, while 29% replied that the Brotherhood was partially responsible, 5% that the Brotherhood is not responsible for any of the violence that occurred, and 6% that they did not who to assign responsibility to for those events.

    Ummm the following (who ever posts with ID that has a black hand and (yellow for coward background) is a Muslim Brother) was due to bribes, cheating and threatening illiterate people which depending which source you believe is from 49 to 69% of the population in Egypt. Guess what, they may not know how to read and write but you (MBH) woke them up with your sick beliefs and they STOPPED YOU AND YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO LIFT YOUR HEADS AGAIN! Your terrorists and murderers!
