Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood believes Western governments fully supported the military overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi, a decision it says will fuel hatred towards the United States and Europe and ultimately backfire on them.

Mohamed El-Beltagi, a senior Brotherhood politician, said everyone would lose, including the West, from violence that could result from the removal of Morsi - Egypt's first freely elected head of state who served just one year in office.

"We feel, with great regret, that the international community is somehow intervening in recognition and support of the military coup," Beltagi told Reuters in an interview.

"This restores the state of hatred towards those European and American nations whose states always stand with despotic regimes against nations looking for freedom," he added.
