    Egypt presidential election: Muslim Brotherhood win sets up army fight

    6/18/12 By Richard Spencer


    The Muslim Brotherhood, long repressed by Egypt's military dictatorship, claimed victory in the race to choose its first freely elected president and set up a dramatic confrontation with the army over his future powers.

    The Brotherhood said Mohammed Morsi, leader of its political front the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), won a narrow but clear victory by a margin of 51.5 to 48.5 per cent of the votes, and would take up the reigns of office by June 30.

    Its proclamation was challenged by Mr Morsi's main rival, the former general Ahmed Shafiq, whose campaign manager accused the Brotherhood of "an act of piracy" and of using "totally false figures" to support its "hijacking" of the results.

    State-run newspapers however, also gave the victory to Mr Morsi.

    Results of Obama's much advertised "Arab Spring". This must be why Obama virtually PUSHED Mubarek out, so the Islamists can take over. Typical Democrat playbook. Same shit as Carter. He also pushed the Shah of Iran out, only to be replaced by Islamist animals that went around slaughtering their own people. Strangely enough, not a peep from Carter and the Democraps about the Islamist barbarians that took over.

    Military Power Grab Eclipses Egyptian Islamists’ Declared Presidential Victory

    by Ryan Mauro Jun 19th, 2012


    The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi and former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, a secularist, have both claimed victory in Egypt’s presidential race and each are accusing each other of cheating. It now matters little who is declared the victor, as the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces seized power over the past week and relegated the presidency to little more than a figurehead.

    The latest tally shows Morsi with a thin victory of 51% to Shafiq’s 49%. Thousands of Hamas supporters filled Palestinian streets after Morsi declared victory with the Hamas Prime Minister expressing his hope that Egypt will now “bolster the resistance of the Palestinian people.” Shafiq’s campaign is accusing the Muslim Brotherhood of “hijacking the election” and said its data shows “beyond all doubt” that he won. Shafiq is contesting the preliminary result.

    The Shafiq campaign said that election observers have “spotted massive violations from Morsi’s campaign” and that the Brotherhood prematurely declared victory “in order to be able to claim vote-rigging when Shafiq wins.” The Egyptian Coalition for Election Observation has submitted reports of election violations in each side’s favor, specifically ballot-stuffing, vote-buying, ground transportation of supporters, clashes and illegal campaigning.

    Morality killing triggers fears and debate in Egypt
    Thu Jul 5, 2012 - The fatal stabbing by men identified as Islamists of a young man as he walked with his fiancee has stirred fears among some Egyptians that zealots emboldened by the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to power will seek to impose their customs on society.

    So...The people of Egypt go from overthrowing a military dictatorship to electing an Islamic dictatorship.

    *sigh* Some people are just gluttons for punishment.

    Shariah and peace that would be an oxymoron. Like airline food, or pretty ugly. I feel a major civil war brewing in Egypt. Or as the child in the famous movie "the sixth sense" once said, "I see dead people..."

    "Shariah and peace that would be an oxymoron."

    That's funny like when LGBT support islamics, they'll be the first to get beheaded...
