In 1981, a few months before President Sadat’s assassination, the then Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Amr al-Tilmisani, severely offended Sadat onair during a national television broadcast. In a televised debate between the two men, al-Tilmisani called on God to hold Sadat responsible for all the misdeeds he had committed as president. Thirty years later, in 2011, a few days before the ousting of Sadat’s successor, Mubarak, Saad al-Katatni, the former head of the Brotherhood’s parliamentary bloc triumphantly declared in a press conference that the regime had lost all legitimacy and that now “the legitimacy had transferred to the people”.
