Egypt’s Christian population begs to differ.
Via Washington Examiner:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., talked down fear of the Muslim Brotherhood’s control in Egypt, as he defended United States foreign aid to Egypt, suggesting that secularists might block the worst forms of Sharia law.
“I’m not clear whether — how the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be,” McCain told Sean Hannity last night. “There are other representatives in parliament. I know that they will be an elected government,” he said.
McCain struck an optimistic tone when Hannity observed that the Egyptian people support Sharia law. “Well, first of all, I’m not clear what kind of Sharia law they are going to impose,” the senator said. “There are many secular and democratically inclined people who were part of that government,” he noted — but he also acknowledged that there “extremists” in Egyptian parliament, who “hopefully . . . will not achieve power.”
