An interesting bit of news from The Egyptian Today (Almasry Alyoum) newspaper published in Cairo. The most interesting part is that the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood decided to drop the slogan they held for decades "Islam is the Solution". What that means, practically, will not be obvious for some time. I hope it signals a change from the customary lip service they pay to their principles, toward finding if they can come up with practical and implementable solutions to peoples everyday problems. But if it is anything like the usual Egyptian politics, it is likely to be substituting one slogan for another, so I will not hold my breath.
