    Muslim Brotherhood agrees to talks with Egypt’s Suleiman

    Source: The Globe and Mail

    The Muslim Brotherhood said on Saturday would be enter into dialogue with Vice President Omar Suleiman to pull Egypt out of its worst crisis in 30 years.

    A spokesman for the Brotherhood, the most influential and organized opposition group, said the talks will take place at the cabinet at 11:00 a.m local time on Sunday to discuss the process of Mr. Mubarak leaving office, the right to protest in public places and guarantees for their safety.

    The Brotherhood said it has the right to abandon the talks if they are going nowhere. The talks will focus on the future of the state and the transitional government.

    “We have decided to engage in a round of dialogue to ascertain the seriousness of officials towards the demands of the people and their willingness to respond to them,” a Brotherhood spokesman told Reuters.

    5. I don't see how the Muslim Brotherhood can be left out of talks.

    They don't appear to be as extreme as the west might fear, and the big problem in negotiating with Sulieman alone is that he's Mubarak's choice.He wasn't elected by the people; he was appointed. We don't know his real agenda, and how much he is under Mubarak's sway.

    7. That would certainly depend on how you define extreme.

    "Pew found that 82% of Egyptians support stoning as a punishment for adultery, 84% favor the death penalty for Muslims who leave the religion"

    And that is regarding the total population, not just those identified with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    "The Brotherhood's stated goal is to instill the Qur'an and Sunnah as the "sole reference point for ... ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community ... and state"

    Informing not only their own action's, but the state's ... not only directly, but strictly, with mythology and tradition. The utter rejection of reason when developing their convictions is scary indeed. Similarly seen by Christians in the US who want their Biblical law in the government. And should be kept as far from it as possible.

    But how can the MB be involved in the negotiations?

    I have it on good authority from our in house DUmmies that this was a grass roots popular uprising and that the Muslim Brotherhood wasn't involved!

    Either DUers don't have a clue about who the MB are, choise to ignore who they, or flly embrace them because they are anti-American, anti- Isreal and Antisemetic; or a combination of any of the three.

    When the Middle East goes up in a blaze of glory, Moonbats wil be quick to point finger at everyone , but themselves, even thou they warned what would happen.

    None of this is going to turn out well.

    What a marvelous idea. I'd invite them in and then arrest them. Schedule public executions, put them on pay for cable, solve a cash flow problem at the same time.

    You would be the perfect strongman leader. Unfortunately, you were born in the wrong place to use your natural abilities!

    Riiiight. Because allowing radical Islamo-fascists to take over a 30+ year ally is the preferred course in our foreign relations with Egypt.
