Thursday, January 12th, 2012
Deputy US Secretary of State William Burns met Wednesday with Mohamed Morsi, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party.
The meeting represented the highest level contacts between the US and the Islamist group since Washington ended a decades-long ban on formal meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood last year.

“It was an opportunity to hear from them and to reinforce our expectation that all the major parties will support human rights, tolerance, rights of women and will also uphold Egypt’s existing international obligations,” a State Department spokeswoman said.

 

Political Groups in Egypt to Protest Abuhatzeira Pilgrimage

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Groups from across the political spectrum in Egypt announced a plan to form human shields to prevent “Zionist” visitors from visiting the tomb of Yaakov Abuhatzeira on Jan. 9-10, the anniversary of his death. Abuhatzeira, a venerated Moroccan rabbi who died in 1880 while on pilgrimage to Israel, is buried in the Egyptian village of Damtu.

The tomb is registered with the Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities as a Jewish heritage site. Nevertheless, the Nasserist Trend, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Freedom and Justice Party, and the Mohamed ElBaradei campaign all signed the group statement, claiming that the visit was unpopular, and unacceptable legally and politically.

Egyptian Islamists win first round

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

With the first of three rounds of parliamentary elections completed in Egypt, it’s estimated that Islamic fundamentalists have won some 65% of the vote.

The Muslem Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party won approximately 40% of the vote, while the Salafis Party, an even more extremist Islamic party came in second with 25% of the vote.

While the Muslim Brotherhood have only talked about modifying parts of the Israel-Egypt peace treaty of 1979, the Salfis have talked about opening up the entire treaty to a national referendum.
