Akef's Muslim Brotherhood tells Straw to "Mind his Own Business"

Islam's Spokesperson Mahdy Akef of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is telling British leader of the House of the Commons and former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw to "mind his own business".

It is so funny that the MB in Egypt are not politically ambitious at the domestic front, but they appointed themselves to be the official mouthpiece for Islam.

It is needless to say that this is Straw's buisness. If Akef is not accepting women in Bikini, I believe Straw has the right not to accept women covering their faces.

MB were the ones who asked the Vatican for official apology.

MB were the ones who asked for boycotting Danish products and for official apology from the government on something was done by an independent newspaper.(Danish Cartoons)

The tragedy is that in general muslims seem to accept it. The one's that speak against radical islam are either anonymous just like yourself FFE or threatened on their lives.

The MB IS the mouthpiece for Islam simply because they are unchallenged.

Not all Muslims accept MB as their mouthpiece.

This is the problem that the MB appointed themselves as the mouthpiece, we (Egyptians) did not ask them to represent us or talk on our behalf or to occupy such space in international media!

It's not fair, you use logic.

It has been a long time since I placed comment (lot of work). Keep the good work in your blog.
I believe Straw was not wrong when he questioned the issue. I believe that instead of attacking him, there would have been a healthy debate on what is ''traditional'' wear and what is truly sensible and proper wear in this day and age.
As usual, people with loud voices and empty heads for most part rule the discussion,

Am very very sick and tiered of reading about "veil" news and the debates about religious and social rights.. really.. enough about that. Does the MB think that this is really the only thing that will solve all our problems.. well? i see nothing resovled and i see the country going backwards and wishing the days of the 60's would come back. Britain is not a muslim country; and whomever decides to live there is bound to respect its social boundaries; u don't like it; u leave..! I think it's the MB that should mind their our biz and stick with what is happening in their own countries..!

Reading these news makes me think of one question that keeps haunting my thoughts day-in and day-out: Why we ask the "OTHER" to tolerate us while we don't tolerate anyhing? Why we ask them to accept us but we don't accept them?

im an Egyptian muslim and i have been thru the mb ,they are very narrow-minded persons,they believe in an islamic agenda rather than an Egyptian agenda,thu,they are all still hypocrites.
for the very specific point of that posting,i really wonder how come akef is asking straw to mind his own business,straw was talking about a phenomenon in his country,something strange to the uk traditions,he wasn't talking about an Egyptian problem,the more strange thing is the wahhabi trends of the muslim brotherhood,Quran never talked about niqab and muslim women can show their faces even during haj,i have said that in another blog,niqab is a mere beduin tradition very specific to the arab peninsula "even had worn before islam was advocated",why doesthe head of the MB defeding a desert clothes and wahabi behaviour?
add to that ,in a country like UK its neither tactful nor polite to talk with someone while ur glasses are on,so what abt covering the whole face "i have posted that in another blog as well".,well,the wife of straw doesn't think of recreating herself in the bikini in the gardens of islamabad,why shouldn't those moron salafists try to understand the others' culture before they have asked the others to understand them?

I think MB or any other Muslim group (or even generally speaking any individual) has the right to say or demand anything within the boundaries of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

I'm not with MB on everything they do of course but i think they have the right to say what they want and denounce what they don't want. Just like you and I have the same right.

When you said: "they appointed themselves to be the official mouthpiece for Islam."... that was a bit out of context.
