November 21, 2013 03:22

US Secretary of State John Kerry accused the Muslim Brotherhood on Wednesday of stealing Egypt's revolution, AFP reported.

"Those kids in Tahrir Square, they were not motivated by any religion or ideology. They were motivated by what they saw through this interconnected world, and they wanted a piece of the opportunity and a chance to get an education and have a job and have a future, and not have a corrupt government that deprived them of all of that and more," Kerry said in a speech to a forum on enhancing links between private sector businesses and diplomatic security agencies.

"They tweeted their ways and Facetimed their ways and talked to each other, and that's what drove that revolution. And then it got stolen by the one single-most organized entity in the state, which was the Brotherhood," he added.
