Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is feeling vindicated by the world's alarm over Islamic extremism that is fueling wars and bloodshed across the Middle East.
The former army general has faced widespread international criticism for his ouster last year of Egypt's first freely elected president and his ferocious crackdown on Islamists that has killed more than 1,000 and imprisoned more than 20,000.
 in an interview with The Associated Press — his first with the foreign media since he took office in June — el-Sissi insists all his actions were to combat militancy and save the country from civil war.
El-Sissi and his supporters effectively group the Muslim Brotherhood — an organization that won repeated elections over the past three years — as equivalent to hardline militant groups wreaking havoc from Libya to Iraq.
Secular activists say the government uses the fight against terrorism as a reason to silence any criticism.
 the comments also pointed to a characteristic the career military intelligence officer has shown ever since he rose to prominence by ousting Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July 2013: A self-confidence that he can dramatically change Egypt and that others will fall in line.
If he had not stepped in to remove Morsi and the Brotherhood, Egypt "would be like all the countries that now suffer from widespread violence, internal conflicts and civil wars," he said, referring to Syria, Libya and Iraq.
In the face of criticism over a range of human rights concerns, el-Sissi argued that the need to establish security in Egypt — where Islamic militants have waged a campaign of violence — and repair the economy took priority.
Rights groups have condemned a draconian law last year that effectively bans protests by requiring a police permit.
The three journalists — Australian Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed — were convicted of promoting or belonging to the Brotherhood and of falsifying their coverage of protests by Morsi's supporters in order to hurt Egypt's security.
An argument among villagers over plans to build a cement factory and a highway erupted into a battle with guns and machetes, killing at least six people and seriously wounding dozens, authorities said Saturday.
