The Muslim Brotherhood's youth wing is splitting from it or something

Leaders of the youth wing of the Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood have split with their elders to form an independent political party, deepening the fractures with the group as some of its prominent members moved toward a more centrist and liberal version of Islamist politics.

The new party, the Egyptian Current Party, is expected to advocate the division of religion from politics, the protection of individual freedoms, and the embrace of Islamic morals and culture without the enforcement of Islamic religious law. Its founders, including Islam Lotfi, Mohamed el-Kasaas and Mohamed Abbas, were also among the young leaders of the Egyptian revolution and broke with the Brotherhood to help lead the first day of the protests that brought down former President Hosni Mubarak.
