Ali points to dangers posed by Turkish Milli Gorus movement
Director-General of the Center for Middle East Studies in Paris (CEMO), Abdel Rahim Ali, described Saturday the Turkish movement, Milli Gorus, as one of the most dangerous in the world after the Muslim Brotherhood.
He added at the monthly breakfast seminar of the center at its headquarters in Paris that the first thing Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi did after taking over Egypt's presidency in June 2012 was to order the killing of 11 peaceful protesters outside the presidential palace in Cairo.
"Morsi also ordered the suppression of Christian citizens and preventing them from reaching polling stations at election times," Ali said.
The seminar is organized on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, a seaside town on the southwestern French Basque coast.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is attending the summit for the first time.
Mariam Benrand, a political violence specialist at the Arab and Islamic World Research and Studies Institute of the French Ministry of Higher Education, is also participating in the seminar. .
Renowned Middle Eastern affairs specialist Roland Lombardi is also participating.
The seminar is mediated by CEMO Executive Director Ahmed Youssef.
