Egypt’s New Muslim Brotherhood ‘Freedom And Justice Party’ Leader Says Goal Is To ‘Institute Islamic Sharia Law’


JPost – “Saad al-Katatny elected head of Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, says goal is to ‘institute Islamic Sharia law.’

Saad al-Katatny was elected chairman of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, Egyptian media reported Friday. He beat out FJP’s acting leader Essam al- Erian in a vote that took place October 6.

The FJP is Egypt’s largest political party, currently occupying 47 percent of all seats in the country’s lower house of parliament.

Katatny hailed his election as ‘a first step’ towards achieving the goals of the FJP, according to Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper.

In this respect, Katatny was quoted as saying that ‘The Muslim Brotherhood established the [FJP] to represent the Brotherhood’s political project, which, in the end, will be a wise government that will institute Islamic Shari’a law.’…

Last week Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Muhammad Badie called on Muslims worldwide to liberate Jerusalem by means of jihad.

According to AFP, in his weekly message to supporters, Badie asserted that ‘The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims,’ stressing that the city’s conquest ‘will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations.’

The Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide previously vowed that if the Muslim Brotherhood ever rose to power in Egypt, it would work to sever relations with Israel. ‘We are certainly not happy with the illegitimate marriage between Cairo and Tel Aviv,’ he said.

‘Once we rise to power we will change many things in Egypt’s policy, starting with the country’s relations with Israel which have caused us great harm.'” Read more.

Flashback: Crucifixion and Amputation: Egyptian MP Proposes Sharia Law Punishments – “… The proposed law calls for the application of ‘Heraba,’ an Islamic penalty for criminal actions that include overt robbery, murder, forcible taking of property with a weapon and vandalizing public facilities. The penalties according to Azzazy’s bill are execution in the case of murder, or cutting one arm and one leg from opposite sides of the culprit’s body in the cases of robbery and forcible taking of property. If the taking of possessions is accompanied by murder, the penalty would be death or crucifixion, to be determined by the judge.” Read more.
