Visions of Islam in Egypt: From the Muslim Brotherhood to Shariah Law (video)

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

Haroon Moghul's recent articles in Religion Dispatches, particularly "4 Reasons Why Egypt’s Revolution is Not Islamic," have been one of many perspectives that I’ve found of great help in trying to make sense of events happening in Egypt during this past week.

And, much to my delight, today he spends nearly an hour discussing the Muslim Brotherhood — its history, its potential role in Egypt, and how it exists in the United States — and a pretty good primer on shariah law — from its historical context to how it exists and functions within contemporary, democratic societies. I’d love to know what you found interesting or points that confuse your understanding of these ideas.
