    Islamists fare well in first round of Egypt's elections - CNN.com


    And yes, it can happen here. When there are enough of them. Anyone who thought 'Arab Spring' was about them wanting to be more like the US is crazy. Once all those countries vote in the muslim brotherhood and the unite, our interests in the middle east will be history.

    Then so be it. They can and will govern themselves. We cannot nor should we try and do it for them. Empire building is never a good thing.

    They will eventually govern you. Denial is more than just a river in Egypt. I've seen them both.

    Political Islam poised to dominate the new world bequeathed by Arab spring
    Saturday 3 December 2011 - The Muslim Brotherhood's success in the first round of Egypt's elections has added to western fears of an Islamist future for the Middle East. But this does not necessarily mean that democracy and liberal policies face extinction

    And just where does this unfounded fear that they will govern us come from? How is the government in Egypt determining the government here? What am I in denial about?

    I would venture a guess that you have no real coherent answer to any of these questions.

    There should be laws that deny religious leaders positions in the government.

    Too many people are ignorant about Islam and other religions. People who say it's Islamiphobia are usually the ones who don't understand Islam.

    It is the will of the people. We want a world of democracy where the people decide and that is what's happening. The danger to America is not the election of Islamist's but the potential of radical Islamist's taking over the leadership and uniting these countries and calling for a Jihad against Christians and Jews and starting a religious war. This is the underlying threat to world peace that potentially could turn the southern part of Europe and Asia into a maelstrom of fire and brimstone.

    The stage is becoming set. The World's superpower has reached its its peak and its decline is evident and the rise of Islam is apparent. The European bloc is in disarray and may fracture or coalesce under an Deutschland umbrella (the Fourth Reich) and the Russians are right now undergoing elections to determine their future. Things are moving fast and in this day and age Governments fall quickly (Soviet Empire) and the marginalization of the US may be but a few years down the road. Rumblings are being heard deep in China too and with the economic slowdown there change may be on the horizon.

    This decade appears to be a decade of change. What will the world look like in 2010?

    IF they were able to form some multinational empire, and IF that empire abandoned pragmatic co-existance for belligerance, at that point the rest of the world would be 100% able to kick thier asses with zero guilt. At that point, the people of those countries would have voted the governments causing the problem into power, and thus would be unable to hide behind the "its our dictatorial government thats an asshole, not us" defense.

    It must really be sad to live in such constant fear.

    My pity truly goes out to you.
