Egyptian Opposition unites against Mubarak

About damn time. Leaders from 10 of Egypt's major opposition groups agreed to put aside their deep enmity for one another and join forces against President Hosni Mubarak's ruling party in next month's parliamentary elections. [...] The National Front includes groups from across the political spectrum and will attempt to mesh organizations that have been deeply critical of each other, if not outright enemies, in an attempt to wrest control of parliament from the 77-year-old Mubarak's National Democratic Party. Among those in the alliance, for example, are the leftist Tagammu party, a fierce critic of the Muslim Brotherhood, a long banned Islamist movement that is now an ally. Others signing on were the leftist Nasserites, the liberal Wafd party, the anti-Mubarak movement Kifaya (Enough) and such fledgling political groups as the Islamist al-Wasat and the left-wing al-Karama. All-right!

hey SM
If you are wise & continue to do so, you shall see in the not so distant future that the opposition itself is fake. The Ruling party & opposition share the same ideology & mentality, except the ruling party knows how to rule.
