Al-Madina newspaper published a report for Lutfi Abdul Alatif on Monday 5/12/2011 titled: Mufti: Saudi Arabia knows no Sectarianism, Partisanship or Conflicts

Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Bin Abdullah Al-Sheikh stressed that Saudi Arabia is a far cry from sectarianism, conflicts and partisanship due to God`s support and the wisdom of the country`s leadership in taking interest of their people. He also appreciated the role of the universities towards youth and the community, stressing the importance of following the teachings of Qur`an and Sunnah.
He gave a message to the students that they have to do good deeds and know how great students of knowledge are rewarded. “Parents have to pay more attention for students from their childhood especially regarding performing the five daily prayers, since the parents are role models for their sons in almost everything. And for youth, they have to take their responsibility toward their country and nation” he said.
“Our hope rests on the university in containing the students and increasing their awareness to what can benefit them and their society. And as I thank God for granting us faithful rulers who follow the teachings of Qur`an and Sunnah, so we have to be supporters for them and get united to defend our country and nation, recognizing that no one is infallible, so let us think good of each other and cooperate with our rulers for the interest of this nation” He added in his meeting with director, staff, and students of Majmaah University, held in the main hall in university students` hostel.

Alsharq Alawsat newspaper published on Tuesday 6/12/2011 a report for Muhammad Abdu Hassanin titled: Head of Al Nour party to Alsharq Alawsat: Shari`a is Our Main Goal But Priority for the Society Reform

Dr. Emad Abdul Ghafour head of Salafi Nour party which won almost one quarter of the first round of the current Egyptian election said: “Applying Islamic Shari`a is one of the main goals of our party, if not the most important at all… but it takes time to achieve this goal. Priority is given now to the economic, security and political reform besides forming a coalition government in cooperation with all parties”.
As for the list of Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, it has won 36.6 % in the first round of the parliamentary election followed by Al Nour, the salafi party, with 24.4% with anticipations to continue success in the next rounds.
Abdul Ghafour expected that Salafists could win the same share or may be more in the two next rounds, refusing allegation that they will restrict the freedoms when they enter people`s assembly.
“why focus is given to stuff like Nagib Mahfouz`s novels”. Abdal Gahfour wondered “they are issues of the past that the Islamic research council have already discussed it many times…we don’t want to discuss it any more…our focus has to be directed to do efforts as possible as we can to build our country.. Let us stay away from what can separate us and focus instead on what can get us together”
Regarding his vision for the next government as the Military Council declared that it – the Military Council, and not people`s assembly- will be responsible for its formation, Abdal Ghafour said: “it’s not possible in any country that the majority party plays that role of opposition instead of forming the government, however I`d like for the parties that won more than 5% to be represented in the next government”
On his part Dr Muhammad Morsi, head of The Freedom and Justice Party, said that it is not the time to discuss which form the next government would take. Discussing stuff like this, he mentioned, is nonsense right now, since all parties are busy now with the second and the third rounds of the elections. “We are already in a coalition of ten parties including liberal and leftist parties” he responded to a question about the possibility of making coalition with Islamic parties.
