The MB's lawyer vs. the MB

Things are getting really interesting this Parliamentarian elections. One of the MB's own and their favorite lawyer is running against them. They are apparantley too soft and compromising for his taste. "I wish I didn't have to compete against a member of the Muslim Brotherhood when we both believe Islam is the solution. I failed to convince them not to field a candidate there," he said. But the former militant of the hardline Gamaa Islamiya (Islamic Group) didn't have only kind words for his rivals. "The Brotherhood has not worked hard enough in parliament for the adoption of the Sharia," or Islamic law, he said. Zayat, who is also running as an independent, hopes he will lead the way for other Gamaa Islamiya activists to have their try at politics. Oh Joy.
