Summary
Article summary: 

The author comments on Fahmi Howeidi’s article about establishing an Islamic party. He expressed his surprise at the fact that Howeidi discussed the idea only from a constitutional angle but not from a political one. Howeidi’s idea that the constitution does not prohibit founding religious parties is based on the words of the constitution not the meaning behind them. Stating that Islam is the religion of Egypt and the main source for legislation does not mean that political parties can be founded on a religious basis.
