Egypt-s-interim-leader-vows-battle-for-security-to-the-end- Al Arabiya Thursday, 18 July 2013 Egypt’s interim President Adly Mansour on Thursday vowed to protect the country from those who “want to drive Egypt to chaos,” in reference to continuous protests by supporters of ousted president Mohammad Mursi. In his first speech to the nation, Mansour said Egypt is going through a decisive stage in its history where some want to drag the country into the “unknown” and cause chaos.
“They want this period to be an introduction to violence and we want it to establish for the concept of protecting lives and reaffirming human rights,” Mansour said. He stressed that his government is committed to realizing security and stability. Mansour's speech comes a day ahead of a massive rally by supporters of Mursi, overthrown in a popular-backed coup two weeks ago. The Friday rallies coincide with the tenth day of Ramadan, which Egyptians celebrate as the day the armed forces crossed the Suez Canal in the 1973 war with Israel.
