Promoting terror thoughts in Egypt is conducted by media platforms broadcasting from a number of countries abroad, including Turkey and Qatar, Head of the State Information Service (SIS) Diaa Rashwan said on Monday 12/3/2018.
Rashwan was delivering a speech during a symposium, organized by the Justice Ministry, titled countering the promotion of terrorist ideology, pointing out that these TV stations and networks have great capabilities to promote the terror thoughts and attacks.
The Muslim Brotherhood's media allege that people who are convicted in terrorist crimes are political opponents, he noted, adding they work on gaining the audience's sympathy towards terrorists.
He said that the MB has never described any terrorist attack that occurred in Egypt as "terrorist", but they only term them as criminal acts.
The foreign media are strongly influenced by the MB media and their lies, which requires more openness and interaction from the state institutions with the foreign media in order to provide them with facts and the truth, added Rashwan.
The SIS does not dictate ideas or perceptions to the foreign media, but it wishes that they would abide by professional rules to verify the information received prior to publication, he said.
