Secondly.. both Sunni Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood are delinking from rigid ideology... Watch .. its subtle but steadily happening...
and the new Constitution is quite secular in nature.
CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamists battled with protesters outside Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi's palace on Thursday, after his vice president suggested amendments could be agreed to the draft constitution that has divided the nation.
"No to dictatorship," Mursi's opponents chanted, while their rivals chanted: "Defending Mursi is defending Islam."
Mursi's opponents accused him of creating a new autocracy by awarding himself extraordinary powers in a decree on November 22 and were further angered when an Islamist-dominated assembly pushed through a draft constitution that opponents said did not properly represent the aspirations of the whole nation.
Medical sources said 211 people were wounded, some with gunshot wounds.....snip~

What was ya tryin for here Sharon? Morsi thats his Palace now. Whether he chooses to live in it or not.
Neither Sunni nor the MB are delinking from Rigid Ideology.....I would not mistake using whatever means to achieve their Grand Delusion as delinking. The only thing they have learned to do is.....learn how to play the game. Still it has taken them over 4k years. Just to learn those basics . Plus to wake up to the Stunning reality. That the rest of the planet will not keep putting up their BS. Do you think the MB has now figured out that they Are NOT the Brightest Bulb in the Room anymore? That actually their Candlelight cannot even compare to All the World on a Stage!
Looks like with what the VP and all else were saying.....that Constitution doesn't looks so Secular now having to take a back seat to Sharia. First off.....don't you think the Egyptians should come up with their own name for the Piece of paper they want to define their country with? Why should we even let them call it a Constitution. As really there is only one!
I assume you have read both. Article 73 of the new Constitution address the ban on forced employment, slavery and sex trafficking. Article 33 grants rights to ALL citizens.. male or female.
Meanwhile change is coming even to conservative KSA.. with colored Abayas, co-ed education, reigning in the religious police...
In the past few months top religious officials, including the minister of justice and the head of the religious police in the Mecca region, which includes Jeddah, have declared ikhtilat a modern term not proscribed by Islamic law.
Saudi jurisprudence has erred, they say, by confusing conservative tribal custom with the rules of sharia, thus lumping the innocent mingling of the sexes with the true sin of khulwa, meaning an unmarried, unrelated couple’s “seclusion” in a setting that could tempt devilishness. In support of this argument, they note that wives in the Prophet Muhammad’s time are known to have served male guests and that even today, Saudis rely on maids and drivers in a practical form of daily ikhtilat.

Morsi is about political Islam NOT Sharia law...And political Islam cannot isolate from the Europe or the US.. The MB is pragmatic ...
Political Islam is pragmatic.. and the Egypt cannot afford to isolate from Europe and the US.... Plus they are Sunni.
Islam fell behind during a long period of illiteracy. .. confusing tribal customs with Sharia Law.
The people in the street represent about ten % of Egyptians... Everyone else knows the vote comes in less than ten days..
Even conservative Saudi Arabia has redefined khulwa and ikhtilat .. Job opportunities have opened for women as well as co-ed education. Women are wearing light colored abayas and scarves, or dark ones with braid and embroidery.
The head of the religious police is an enlightened liberal..
I'll write more later and give you links to read.. when the board stops conking out.
