At a plush Cairo dinner for visiting British politicians, one of Egypt's top businessmen served his guests seafood cocktails, chocolate fondants and a blood-filled video depicting the Muslim Brotherhood as a brutal threat to society.Mohammad Farid Khamis, an influential carpet tycoon with connections to new President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, used Sunday's dinner to profile the dangers state authorities believe the Brotherhood poses in Egypt. Set to dramatic music, the film mixed footage of ousted President Mohammad Morsi, who hailed from the Brotherhood, with clips of armed jihadist fighters and images of Islamist attacks.Sisi says Egyptians have rejected the Brotherhood and stressed the importance of balancing rights and freedoms with security concerns when he met the British delegation at the weekend, according to his office.When in office, the Brotherhood failed to reassure many that they were committed to a democratic Egypt.
