“If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law."

Cairo, Jan. 29: Reacting to Egypt’s growing chaos, the head of the army warned today of the “collapse of the state” if political forces in the country did not reconcile, reflecting growing impatience with the crisis from Egypt’s most powerful institution. “The continuation of the conflict between different political forces and their disagreement on running the affairs of the country may lead to the collapse of the state and threatens the future of the coming generations,” said Gen. Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi, who is also the defence minister. He added that “the attempt to affect the stability of the state institutions is a dangerous matter that harms Egyptian national security”.
