Egypt Abul-Fotouh travels to Saudi Arabia in a private visit
Ex-Muslim Brotherhood leader and former presidential contender Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh, travelled to Saudi Arabia in a private visit on Thursday morning. The details of his travel plans have yet to be confirmed.
The gulf visit comes amidst much media speculation that Abul-Fotouh, who was ejected from the Brotherhood for running for presidency, will be made vice president, allegations that both he and President Mohamed Morsi have so far denied.
Abul-Fotouh's campaign spokeswoman Doaa Fattouh told Ahram Online Monday that the moderate-Islamist politician is expected to launch a new political party called the 'Strong Egypt Party,' in the next few days. The new party is expected to offer the same political programme as Abul-Fotouh's recent presidential campaign.
In the run-up to last month's presidential elections runoff vote, Abul-Fotouh declared his support for the Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi against Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister Ahmed Shafiq.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
