Mahdi Akef of the Muslim Brothers: 'We take nobody's permission'

Al-Ahram Weekly | Egypt | 'We take nobody's permission': "Marveling at the 'absurdity' of the state's relationship with the MB, 77-year-old Akef, who spent 20 years in prison, insisted the group's legitimacy comes 'from the street'. He also described recent hints from Washington that it would like to enter into dialogue with the MB as insincere, serving 'only US interests and arousing people against us'. "
