Salafists
Sadly Egypt seems to be sleepwalking into a benighted future. Wake up before you reach the point of no return .

Egypt is going no where
This sort of thing is the exact reason why Egypt and other arab countries are moving backwards while the rest of the world is progressing. They are destroying a country and its people, and it would seem that the rest of the world has respect for a country so full of history, more than the Egyptian muslims do. The liberal muslims are quick to speak out, but where are they when the Churches are being burned and christians slaughtered. Why dont you go out onto the streets to burn the salafi's and muslim brother hoods head quarters if you are so serious about saving the country.

Madness
Has the Army revoked the law on religious parties or just ignoring it? Salafis have been in trouble for burning churches, killing people and bombing mosques. They are anti-revolution, anti-equality, anti-democracy and have pledged to not obey laws they don't agree with, even if passed by parliament or a referendum. What next? An al Quaeda Party with 'an Islamic basis'? Asking for trouble.
