Egypt president vows to stand by Gaza

Egypt’s Islamist president says his country will stand by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and demanded Israel stop its latest offensive on the Hamas-ruled territory.

Mohammed Morsi says Egypt “will not leave Gaza on its own” and warned the “aggressor to stop the bloodshed or face the wrath” of Egypt’s new leadership and institutions.

Morsi spoke on Friday at a mosque near his house on the outskirts of Cairo. The sermon was his harshest condemnation yet of the Israeli offensive.

Morsi said he dispatched his prime minister to Gaza to send a clear message that Egypt supports the people there and will not tolerate the killing of civilians.

Hamas is an offshoot of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group in Egypt. The Brotherhood led protests across the country on Friday against Israel.
