Trust but Verify: Egypt's New Muslim President Appoints a Christian VP
June 27, 2012
Ronald Reagan has been quoted as saying, "Trust, but verify". This is exactly the thought I have as I've been reading the news about Egypt's new President, Mohamed Morsi, who has now reportedly appointed a Christian as his Vice President.
Mission Network News has the story here. Here's a quote of note:
Egypt (MNN) ― Egypt's first-ever democratically-elected president, Mohamed Morsi, has already made history.
Now, he'll do it again by appointing a Christian vice president as one of his first acts. He will also choose another vice president who is a woman.
The Islamist figure, a Muslim Brotherhood leader, promised to ensure rights of minorities. Farid Samir, the Executive Director of *SAT-7's studios in Cairo, says despite the show of good will, "Although most of the promises that he had made are positive, it's not the promises. [Minorities] had fears of being treated as second-class citizens."
In a May 12th speech at Cairo University, Morsi said, "The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path, and death in the name of Allah is our goal."
Meanwhile our friends at CBN News have filed two reports concerning the new President and expose what could be the true intentions behind the actions of Morsi.
