Egypt's opposition targets reforms |

Egypt's opposition targets reforms "Muslim Brotherhood members, however, argue that Islam encompasses political change. 'There is no contradiction between political reform and Islam,' says Brotherhood MP Ibrahim. 'Human rights come from Islam. Fighting corruption comes from Islam. All these issues stem from Islam.'
Some government officials and analysts also complain that the Brotherhood lacks a concrete political program. 'The Muslim Brotherhood did not come up with a position on privatization or subsidies or education or health, on any of the major challenges facing this country, compared to this government, which is committed to a program,' said Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, speaking to a group of businesspeople in Cairo last Monday."
