Muslim Brotherhood Will Attend Obama Speech in Cairo
Posted by Shadi Hamid

The POMED Wire, the blog of the Project on Middle East Democracy, is breaking the news that ten parliamentarians from the Muslim Brotherhood will be attending Obama's speech in Cairo on Thursday. There doesn't seem to have been much in English on this yet, so we went ahead and translated parts of the Al Arabiya article which first reported this development just a couple hours ago. Apparently, the invitations were a result of U.S. pressure, and, according to the Muslim Brotherhood's Saad Katatni  “came as a compromise solution between the American administration and the Egyptian government.” This is a significant development, and quite unexpected. For more, check out the the POMED Wire summary here.
