According to Al Sawt, prosecutors associated with Jordan’s Salafi movement have brought a lawsuit to the Sharia Court of Amman—a lawsuit being called “the first of its kind” in modern Jordan: they [...]
Las elecciones presidenciales egipcias, las primeras de su clase en 7.000 años de historia nacional, están en marcha desde el pasado 22 de mayo. Mientras aguardamos a conocer los resultados definitivos, y mientras los medios occidentales se obsesionan con las imágenes de dedos manchados con tinta violeta, es bueno recordar que hay en juego en las elecciones egipcias mucho más que el «derecho» de sufragio.
