Egyptians Are One Hand to Complete the Goals of the Revolution
We direct to you—our brothers, sons of the Egyptian revolution—a statement and a call that begins with our love for our Egypt and our protectiveness over its constituents’ coalition and ends with the success of our revolution and the realization of our goals. We say to you:
Tahrir Square is not exclusively for one party, movement, group, ideological following, or religion; rather it is for all those who carry Egyptian citizenship and wanted freedom and justice for all its constituents. We say to you:
First: We welcome all Egyptians from outside the Square who wanted to join the constellation of their revolutionary brothers.
Second: We and whoever else is in the Square represent in an integral part of the revolution and not the whole revolution; therefore our brothers who will come to us on Friday represent only an integral part of the revolution.
(We and they represent the revolution)
Welcome to you and to us; together we build Egypt, achieve the goals the revolution, avenge the blood of the martyrs, and achieve justice for our people.
Third: We hope that you revolutionaries of Egypt—in and out of the Square—will not raise divisive slogans, and that we will respect the popular will, for Egypt comes first.
Fourth: If you do not wish to refrain from raising decisive slogans, then each of us must respect the other’s wishes, according to the freedom to express opinions and demands in a peaceful, civilized manner. We have no right to kill our achievements with our own hands.
Fifth: We say to you that any aim that divides is evil, even if it were good. If you divide us, beware of evil telling us: you have killed your achievements with your own hands, turned your freedom into slavery, your victory into defeat, and your rosy dreams into terrible nightmares, and you have wasted the blood of the martyrs.
Finally: We hope that you swear an oath with our Lord that we will be one hand, one group, one preacher, and one imam.
