      Egyptian First: Shi'ite Party


      Shi'ite intellectual Rasim al-Nafis announced, on Thursday, the establishment of Egypt's first Shi'ite Muslim political party. He said the new Al-Wahada Wa-Al-Huriya (Unity and Freedom) party will support a civilian government with separation between politics and religion.

      One of the party's founders called "the Zionist entity" Egypt's primary enemy and said its elimination will bring independence for the nation.
