But remember: Clueless Clapper, the director of National “Intelligence,” said they were a “largely secular” group.
More from the man featured in this story, including his retraction of a statement he made in that one. “Brotherhood leader: We shall apply Islamic sharia,” by Khalaf Ali Hassan for AlMasry AlYoum, May 25:
The Muslim Brotherhood would apply Islamic sharia if it came to power, said leading Brotherhood figure Sobhi Saleh, adding that sharia protects non-Muslim citizens.
“Terms like civil or secular state are misleading,” he said. “Islamic sharia is the best system for Muslims and non-Muslims.”
Saleh apologized for his earlier statements that the Muslim Brotherhood could not recognize liberals or communists as Muslims, and that he disapproved of Muslims marrying outside the group.
“The media incorrectly paraphrased my statements,” he said.
