Egypt heading toward Shariah standard

WorldNetDaily.com reports: “The Muslim Brotherhood, which initially sought to allay fears Egypt would adopt radical Islam after the fall of President Hosni Mubarak, has reversed course and now is ‘working to maximize its achievements in the upcoming elections,’ according to a report from the Middle East Media Research Institute.

And raising alarms for many, according to the Islamic group’s platform, it is deriving its ‘source of authority’ from Islamic religious law, or Shariah, arguing that the majority of Egyptians favor it.

The aftermath of the revolution in Egypt has turned violent in recent weeks, with 25 Christians being killed just last month in growing conflicts between majority Muslims who are increasingly demanding imposition of strict Shariah and minority Christians who have lived in the region for centuries.

The Muslim Brotherhood platform ‘adds that non-Muslims have the right to follow their own religious laws in matters of faith, worship, and personal status whenever these laws differ from those of the Shariah, but should be judged according to the Muslim principles of justice and equality in all other domains of life,’ the MEMRI report explains…” (The Arab Spring arising which many believe could bring democratic reform within Muslim nations know nothing about Shariah law which Islamic nations are now attempting to vote or force into law. Not only does Shariah Law oppose a democratic form of government but would bring mass devastation upon any nation and people who promote anything but Shariah law, the most deadly dealing law exercised.

According to the Daily Telegraph, citing the news site Vice.com, the flag was flying alongside the Libyan national flag but the National Transitional Council denied it was involved.
