IN an old apartment building in the south of Cairo, along the Nile River, the Muslim Brotherhood is planning Egypt's future...Although banned, the Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt's best-organised opposition group... it was from the Muslim Brotherhood that Hamas - the militant Palestinian group that runs Gaza - developed.
The Muslim Brotherhood's view on the possible introduction of Sharia law - strict Islamic law - is creating much interest in a country with a traditionally secular government.
Refat Abdo Said, looking to run as a Muslim Brotherhood candidate, backs Sharia law for Muslims and non-Muslims...What about equality between men and women? "Women can do two things: take care of their husband and children in the home and jobs which are suitable, such as medical care and teaching."
He adds: "Islamic laws are very good for everybody and very comfortable for everybody."
