Murad Ali, a spokesman for the Freedom and Justice Party, which is the political wing of the Egypt’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood, told Reuters the protests against President Mohammed Morsi are comparable to the 1952 coup that toppled the Egyptian monarchy. Ali also said this would result in the country moving “back to dictatorship.” 

“This is a very critical moment in Egyptian history–we are facing a moment very similar to 1952,” Ali said. “Egyptians are very aware that there are some people that are trying to push the country back in history and back to dictatorship.”
