Egyptian Islamists quickly approve draft Constitution based on “principles of Islamic law”

I look at our situation here in the US and then I look at Egypt and I literally thank God that I am not a Christian there. We have many problems here, but we don’t have an Islamist government passing an Islamist Constitution that will lead to the oppression and deaths of our Christian population.

Pray for the Christian population there, especially the ones unwilling to leave their homeland because I’m afraid that it’s about to get even uglier for them than it already has been throughout this revolution:

YNET NEWS – Islamists approved a draft constitution for Egypt early Friday without the participation of liberal and Christian members, seeking to pre-empt a court ruling that could dissolve their panel with a rushed, marathon vote that further inflames the clash between the opposition and President Mohammed Morsi.

The move advanced a charter with an Islamist bent that rights experts say could give Muslim clerics oversight over legislation and bring restrictions on freedom of speech, women’s rights and other liberties.

The draft must now be put to a nationwide referendum within 30 days. Morsi said Thursday it will be held “soon.”

The Islamist-dominated assembly that has been working on the constitution for months raced to pass it, voting article by article on the draft’s more than 230 articles for more than 16 hours. The lack of inclusion was on display in the nationally televised gathering: Of the 85 members in attendance, there was not a single Christian and only four women, all Islamists. Many of the men wore beards, the hallmark of Muslim conservatives.

For weeks, liberal, secular and Christian members, already a minority on the 100-member panel, have been withdrawing to protest what they call the Islamists’ hijacking of the process.

“This constitution represents the diversity of the Egyptian people. All Egyptians, male and female, will find themselves in this constitution,” Essam el-Erian, a representative of the Muslim Brotherhood, declared to the assembly after the last articles were passed just after sunrise Friday.

“We will implement the work of this constitution to hold in high esteem God’s law, which was only ink on paper before, and to protect freedoms that were not previously respected,” he said.

The sudden rush to finish came as the latest twist in a week-long crisis pitting Brotherhood veteran Morsi and his Islamist supporters against a mostly secular and liberal opposition and the powerful judiciary. Voting had not been expected for another two months. But the assembly abruptly moved it up in order to pass the draft before Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court rules on Sunday on whether to dissolve the panel.

      Which means the new Egyptian economy will be built on woman and child and impoverished foreign worker slave labor like the rest of the Islamic world.

    Egypt = Iran Mk II.

    Once in the saddle, this islamic regime cannot be dislodged. Remember the Iranian Green Revolution a few years ago, when Obama did nothing? Same in Egypt.

    And in my admittedly black mood, the possibility of Egypt going to war with Israel has come a step closer. Remember the outcry (not!) when Khomeini sent young boys against Saddam’s army in the Iran/Iraq war, so they could all become martyrs? He even gave each of those boys a key, to wear round their necks, to open the doors of paradise. IIRC 8,000 of them died.
    What’s going to hinder Morsi doing the same? He’ll have the World MSM on his side …

    • msm doesn’t have anything on our Lord mum! Remember who is on Israel’s side 🙂 That’s gotta help your mood a little right? (((())))s

      I agree though. We’re all in for a mighty interesting year.

      • colliemum

        Thanks, ABiC – yes, He is on Israel’s side, that is the one rock we can all stand on.
        We must also remember what Jesus said about those who do harm to the little ones.

        But it still wrings my heart when I see how those little ones are taught that dying for their satanic prince of darkness is the best thing in their lives – like that poor boy on the video scoop put up, who was digging his grave.

        The only remedy we have is to pray for Israel, not forgetting to pray for the innocents.

        • Amen mum. Yes, it seems when I believe when my heart is broken enough, something like that comes along. sigh. Prayers are always needed, and from me they are always going, but sometimes it doesn’t seem like they’re answered. I know though. His time for everything.

          • MiketheMarine

            Hello, Scoop Archangel. How are ya?

            • Better now! 🙂 Mornin’ myMarine! 😀

              • MiketheMarine

                Morning, M’Lady. Notice, I’m back to my aggressive and slightly angry self? Feels good to feel good.

                • Delighted to see you back and in such feisty mood too my Patriotic Marine friend! 🙂

                • MiketheMarine

                  It’s interesting that physical pain makes me MORE aggressive rather than less.

                • I like it. I’m glad you’re feeling well today.

          • colliemum

            Yes – His time for everything, and while prayers sometimes don’t seem to be answered, we don’t know, can’t know, if He doesn’t answer them in ways we cannot discern.
            But that He hears our prayers, every single one, of that we can be certain.

            Jesus told us to be of good cheer because He is always with us – so that’s another thing I’ve gotta work on …

          • It’s quite possible we are all being tested by God right now. That’s would explain why things seem to get worse… To test faith. Faith untested is false. Having faith in God in good times only is false. it’s when, in your human understanding, your faith is severely tested and you still believe… That’s FAITH! In times of tribulation, Liberals look up to Government… We look up to God our Heavenly Father! Therein lies the big difference and explains a lot of the Liberal mindset if you ask me.

            • colliemum

              Yes – got it in one!

              The great theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer took a closer look, and contrasts cheap and costly grace:

              “Cheap grace means grace sold on the market like (common) wares. The sacraments, the forgiveness of sin, and the consolations of religion are thrown away at cut (rate) prices. [… …] Costly grace is the Gospel, which must be sought again and again, the gift, which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock.

              Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin and grace because it justifies the sinner. Above all, it is costly because it costs God the life of His Son: “ye were bought at a price,” and what has cost God much cannot be cheap for us. Above all, it is grace because God did not reckon His Son too dear a price to pay for our life, but deliver Him up for us. Costly grace is the Incarnation of God.”

              Read the whole thing:

            • Sorry Wolfie, late to answer. I have felt the same for more than a few years. So many people I know, who have been going through some very tough situations, and it does seem to be a faith test. I know I have had to learn to be still and trust more and more in the Lord, and some things he has answered right away, other things I’m having to wait for answers, but like mum said- He always hears.
              Yes, I have drawn closer to Him (still have a long way to go in some things) in the past 4 years than ever before. I wouldn’t have it any other way really. It’s not been easy and sometimes I can’t stand where I am, but I know He’s working things out and am comforted by that.
              🙂 Sorry, didn’t mean to write a book here lol.

              • YOu call that a book…. Let me show you a book… 😉 Good reply! 🙂

                • LOL it seemed like a book when I was typing it… but looking again, that’s shorter than my usual. 😉

      • War will come very soon. If not 2013 then the year after, of this I am certain. When it does, at least I’ll have this to say before answering the call to arms against Islamic barbarism:

        “The shroud of Islam has fallen. Begun a world war has….”

        Said to the tune of this memorable sci-fi moment:

    • Rshill7

      “…a key, to wear round their necks, to open the doors of paradise.”

      Wow, Khomeini is one heckuva locksmith, and those are some wondrous metaphysical keys huh? I guess in Islam you can take it with you.

      • colliemum

        Yep – and here on earth they’ll put up a nice big fountain, spewing water coloured blood red, to celebrate that martyrdom.
        That’s what they did in Tehran.

        It’s not only the religion of death, it is a satanic religion, celebrating the prince of darkness.

        But we know that he has already been defeated, and that his days here on earth are coming to an end – even if this end seems to us to be so far away still.

        • Rshill7

          Satan has always attempted to counterfeit everything God has done. The backward mass, the upside down cross, the mortal human sacrifices, witchcraft, Simon who tried to buy the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the alternative religions, i.e., Islam and Satanism, two peas from the same hellish pod.

          • colliemum

            Indeed – and while the satanism of the upside-down cross and all that only attracts relatively few disordered minds, islam is his success story, infecting millions and millions over nearly 1500 years.

            • Just another form of Satanism. It too will ultimately fail.

  • And sadly, too many republican leaders continue to promote islam as “religion of peace” like sadly President Bush did even after 9/11! Until we unite and stop this path and unite to wipe out this evil as we did against Nazism, so much unnecessary suffering and murders will continue. Remember when on Arab speaking channels, obama had whispered in the ears of Egyptian leaders that he is muslim son of a muslim, and to trust him! We have more than enough evidence on Libya to impeach obama. Why don’t we unite and take care of this problem now?

  • As with all arab and most Muslim states, one man, one vote, one time. Morsi is setting himself up as a dictator so that he can implement a theocratic Sharia Law state along the lines of Iran. Hope Hillary and Obama are pleased with the results of their meddling in the internal affairs of a country that used to be our ally under Mubarak. Now we have a radical Islamist state with a radical Islamist leader that is hostile to both the United States and Israel. Way to go, team Obama!

  • 3d81

    This is Iran II

    Alot of young American lives will be lost in the future because the current administration had a major hand in this.
    Get ready for a long and dirty war.

    • MiketheMarine

      Yep, like centuries of war.

  • How long before these Islamofascists tear down the Pyramids and Sphinx because they are “an affront to Allahthedemon”

    It’s what they do: Islamists continue destroying Timbuktu heritage:

  • sjmom

    Ever notice how Satan will rush to get things done. This is why I don’t believe the hype of the “fiscal cliff”. Just another hurry up to make a mistake. The Egyptian constitution will prove this point and as the world bewails what happens there they can look to themselves at what they and Obama could have but refused to stop.

    Obama is as complicit as Morsi and I have no other option after the Brotherhood has been a regular visitor to the WH to believe this administration is in cahoots with them trying to establish the Caliphate.

        On the 28th there was a giant sinkhole in Ohio. In the last week there was another one in Louisiana. This could trigger “earthquakes in diverse places”, including Michigan where me and my family are.

        On the 20th there was a fairly mild quake in Illinois.

        Stay spiritually prepared, at least. Physically prepared if possible. Prophecy is on the march. That prophecy spoken by Christ himself.

        • MiketheMarine

          I’m glad The Lord likes me because I agree with you. Things seem, somehow, a bit spooky and seem to be following a book within a book. Revelations, and you know the larger book, I’m quite sure.

          • I like how the story turns out! 🙂

            • MiketheMarine

              Yep, me too. According to the Marine’s Hymn, I will be in uniform again, guarding the Streets of Heaven. I don’t fear that outcome.

              • I wonder if I get an honorary uniform?

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  You have an honorary uniform already Duckie. Don’t ever take it off.

                • MiketheMarine

                  I agree 100 %

                • I love you guys!!

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  We LOVE our Duckie!!!

                • 🙂 You guys make me a happy Duckie. Thank you.

                • MiketheMarine

                  Amen to what the Green Beanie said.

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  She looks pretty hot in her Green beanie.

                • MiketheMarine

                  I thought she looked hot in her Dress Blues, Corps style. LOL

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  Well you did notice what uniform she chose to wear right?

                • Aw quit it! *blush* knock it off you guys. 😀

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  I would arm wrestle with that Marine for you but he has an unfair advantage with a broken wrist right now. I am not the type to kick a man when he’s down.Especially a MARINE.

                • For some reason the reply isn’t showing down below. You guys made my day. I needed that. Thank you. 🙂

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  I have to go back to work.Early lunch break. I’ll talk to you later.

                • Have a Blessed day MyGB.

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  I’ll leave you in good hands here with Mike and Wolfie.Ciao

              • If things turn out the way I hope, I’ll be the first in line to Salute you! Heck…Why wait! SALUTE! Thank you again Marine for your service to this great nation!

                • MiketheMarine

                  Return Salute.


                • Thank you for the thougth, But I don’t deserve it, you and all who served in the armed forces do. 🙂

                • MiketheMarine

                  Wrong, Brother. You guys are the reason that we guys are willing to do what we do.

                • That’s a great statement… In that case, I accept your salute! Sir, you are a Patriot and it’s a pleasure to know you!

                • MeanGreenBeret

                  Wolfie can cover my back anytime.

      … trying to establish the caliphate – and eradicating Israel and all Jews who live there.
      Then they’ll demand Al Andalus back: good-bye, Spain, and finally have their moon-god sign on a flag on St Peter in Rome.

      We warned them. They didn’t listen.

    • Marridge

      Everyone please read “The False Prophet” by Ellis Skolfield. It is freely available and downloadable at This is not a fiction book but a chilling theory backed up by bible prophecy verses that islam is indeed the endgame.

  • Don’t hold your breath scoop. what happens over in Egypt, can happen over here, especially when you have such a motivated guy like Zero. Now, that he found his new toy, “Executive Order” what’s to stop him from having an Islamic/Sharia constitution as well? Maybe Israel needs to save US this time!

    • MiketheMarine

      What’s to stop him? Us. The crazy, armed American with his Bible and Guns. This is our country, dammit. We do not HAVE to take this garbage. Did our Founding Fathers not comment on the probability of the citizens having to whip some government butt and get back to our roots? They seem to have been clairvoyant, no?

      • There’s my warrior! Tex is on our side tho. lol. 🙂 I love your fightin’ spirit myMarine.

        • MiketheMarine

          Hooorah !!! Time to get serious and wake up some inhead electees. Just a matter of time before we are forced to unleash the dogs of war.

      • Spoken like a true warrior. I LOVE IT! 🙂

        • MiketheMarine

          It’s just a matter of time. What they fail to realize is that our side has morals and ethics and will take no pleasure in the killing if it comes to that. The only reason they are still “talking” about how to fix the problems is we believe in giving them an honest opportunity to wake the fkuc up. But the clock is ticking……

      • Marridge

        I predict the day after his inauguration he will come after us (armed) Christians. This boy is not going to waste one minute trying to establish a caliphate that includes the US. He is in a hurry. He won’t wait until the end of his term. However first things first, which is disarm the populace because armed people are a pain in the a** when you are trying to ram your will through.

        • MiketheMarine

          Never going to happen. I will not be disarmed. Not without a fight.

  • Rshill7

    Break out the burkhas kids….your epidermis is showing. Out of the heat and into the fire.

    Do you miss Mubarak yet? I do. So does Israel.

    • The best comment I’ve seen so far today mybear, and I’ve seen a bunch of great ones. This one says it loudest.

  • colliemum
    • WHAT A SHOCK!!! Be still my beating heart! I need a drink after reading that article! 🙂

      • MiketheMarine

        Not me, I need a plane ticket and a Barrett.

        • Ahaha! That’s the Marine spirit we know and love!

          • MiketheMarine

            My Scoop family knows, or, at least, suspects that THEY don’t want what we’re prepared to do for the safety and love of our family, friends, property and rights. They had best start getting nervous. I just don’t believe they are that smart, sadly.

    • wow, this has got to be a world record of a new revolution that wanted to change back after they didn’t like what we saw. Wish we did the same….

  • MiketheMarine

    I predict that within 10 years you will see a new American policy in place that includes the term “Crusade.”. We are doomed to repeat history, I fear. Beginning with the Civil War II, followed by the completion of the Crusades.

    • colliemum

      Nothing wrong with a Crusade Mk II – it’s only the Left who hates that word, because their muslim puppet masters tell them so.

      • MiketheMarine

        Those puppets will be targets too. The planet is over populated, anyway.

  • deeme

    You know I think a prefer the upfront we are rewriting the Constitution method, as opposed to rendering it deceased and Hiring people who’s one job is to uphold it, AKA the Supreme Court ,whom half of don’t believe in it..I prefer upfront, to sneaky and shady lawyers …finding their way around the law of the land..
    At the same time I feel for these people who truly wanted democracy and got this..beware every country including our own ..

  • Myptofvu

    Well I can rest easy now. I was worried there for a moment that there would be an end to FGM (female genital mutilation) but now that the Islamists are in charge there is no chance of that happening. And as an added bonus [Let the Honor Killings begin] !! Sharia Law is great!! And don’t forget the young girls who were locked in a burning building because they were not dressed appropriately for being out in public. A sudden fire is no excuse for running out of a burning building without being covered up first. Obama and Hilary must be so proud of what they have helped to create here.
