Apostacy, according to Hamas


This article by the former Kuwaiti Education Minister argues that the Muslim Brotherhood (i.e., Hamas) has declared that all other Mulsims are "takfir" — accused of apostacy — for which the punishment is death. That's the rationale for the Egyptian bombing.

This is sort of interesting as an indication of intra—Islamic feuding. I think that means that real infidels can be killed, but according to the Muslim Brotherhood, fake Muslims (everybody who doesn't agree with them) also can be killed. According to this article that is the Al Qaeda belief.

At least they're arguing with each other...in public.
