Though it may have been downplayed, there's still an emphasis on sharia
in Egypt's current constitution:
The draft constitution eliminates the 2012 Muslim Brotherhood constitution’s Article 219, which defined aspects of Sharia law on which legislation could be based. Article 219 and other aspects of the 2012 constitution led many liberal and Christian leaders to boycott the Muslim Brotherhood government, culminating in popular protests and the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
Nevertheless, remaining in the new draft constitution is Article 2, which states that the principles of Sharia are “the main source of legislation.”
This is exactly why Christians and Jews must not be taken in by how the current government in Egypt is operating. The danger of sharia is still there.
