Islam is a religion of Justice and Peace

Note:  The headline of the report pasted below will cause some folks to fly into hysterics.  Hysterics do not facilitate the peace process.  I have Muslim friends in San Diego (and elsewhere) who are convinced that the Muslim Brotherhood is finally in a position to help Egypt’s next government resolve Egypt’s social problems.  My friends say that the American people will thereby have an opportunity to learn that Islam … rightly understood … is a religion of justice and peace.  Let’s do some homework.  Let’s study:  The Muslim Brotherhood Official English Website.  Let’s watch this short video:  Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood / PBS NewsHour (09:22).   Peace, Roy

LONDON (Ma’an) —

Hamas leaders are holding meetings in Sudan to discuss joining the Muslim Brotherhood, the London-based Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported Saturday.

Some 59 members of Hamas’ Shura Council met in Khartoum to discuss creating a separate branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine, the report said.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh met Muslim Brotherhood chairman Muhammad Badie on Dec. 26 during his visit to Cairo.

A Hamas delegation, including Haniyeh and Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal, is in Khartoum and met Sudanese President Omar Bashir on Thursday.

In October, a Muslim Brotherhood delegation visited the Gaza Strip for the first time. The party had been curbed by US-aligned Hosni Mubarak but it has been empowered by a strong showing in elections since the president’s ouster.
