Salafists in Egypt

Sometimes I feel like an orientalist reading the Washington Post. In this article on Egypt's salafists, you learn that the Muslim brotherhood opened its political ranks to minorities, namely Christians? Never heard of that before, and I absolutely think its untrue. The only incident I have encountered is when the brotherhood supported a Coptic candidate in the Egyptian elections. Here is the quote:

"Unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, they have not actively participated in Egyptian politics and have not opened their political ranks to minorities, such as Coptic Christians"
