Muslim Brotherhood enters Egyptian parliament

Muslim Brotherhood rejected the long-standing arrangement with Egyptian government which turned a blind eye to operation of the Muslim group banned in 1954, and in turn, Muslim Brotherhood did not run for Shura Council, the upper chamber of Egyptian parliament. After the recent government crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood for its cooperation with Islamic terrorist groups and subverting the secular Egyptian state, the Muslim Brotherhood abandoned its previous political restraint and sent 19 members for Shura Council elections as independents. Egyptian government, as usual, rigged the elections, but this time many adherents of Muslim Brotherhood countered poll station falsifications with violence. Gunfights and clashes raged at several polling stations. Muslim Brotherhood is the largest opposition party in Egypt, supported by overwhelming majority of common Egyptians as honest, Islamic, anti-corruption politicans. Hamas is a Palestinian outgrow of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas maintains close ties with Muslim Brotherhood, receives money and logistical assistance for weapons transportation.
