Mark Salah Morgan Joins Group Urging Drafters of Egyptian Constitution To Support Equal Rights

August 7, 2012

Mark Salah Morgan has joined members of the U.S. Congress, Dr. James Zogby of the Arab American Institute and U.S. religious groups in an effort to urge drafters of the new Egyptian Constitution to support equal rights for all citizens. In an August 7 letter, Mark, U.S. Congressmen Nick Rahall (D-WV) and Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Dr. Zogby, among others, urged Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the drafters to "recognize the equality of all Egyptians and to reject any language that would discriminate against any citizen of Egypt on the basis of that citizen's religion or gender." With Egypt's Parliament having been dissolved on June 14, 2012, Morsi now enjoys full executive and legislative authority, along with the power to set all public policies in Egypt and sign international treaties.
