Brotherhood opposes adding 'when not against God's law' to constitution
A Muslim Brotherhood leader said that the group is against adding the phrase “when not against God’s law” to the new constitution.
Abdel Khaleq al-Sherif, the Brotherhood’s publicity head, said that the phrase does not add any meaning.

He said that if equality is absolute, this would result in problems relating to inheritance, the guardianship of men over women and other matters.

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
