Uh-Oh! Muslim Brotherhood Legit in Egypt

A Times Live-AFP article announced that the grand-daddy of militant Islamic organizations (Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1928), is no longer an outlaw group. The Egyptian government's ban, imposed in 1954, is hereby lifted.

EDITORIAL COMMENT: As the largest and best-organized opposition group to Mubarak, they are poised to become a formidable party in future elections. They are already campaigning for repudiating the treaty with Israel and strengthening their ties with Hamas and Hezbollah.
