Shocker! Egyptians approve Islamist-backed constitution

OK so it’s not really a shocker. In fact it’s what we’ve been expecting to happen and while these results are reported as unofficial, it appears that in total over 60% of voters agreed with the constitution amid low voter turnout:

The Christians in Egypt really need our prayers as they will likely be put under a heavy burden of oppression in the coming years.

  • The Christians had better start making plans to leave. If the basis of the constitution is Sharia Law, then that constitution isn’t going to look kindly on any other religion except Islam. So this should be a warning sign to the Christians to clear out, just like Hitler coming to power was a signal for the Jews to leave Germany. Strange how history is repeating itself, only in a different country with a different religion. Times change but people don’t.

  • you mean they haven’t already?

    • fine. if you want to play semantics, ‘heavier’ just for you.

      • I’m just saying. We all knew we were going to see it happen sooner or later, you said it your self!


    ISLAM = EVIL = ENEMY . ( period )

  • Those women will remember that day as the LAST TIME they cast a ballot in their lifetimes…

    • Cindy09

      Remember, we are not that far behind when it comes to make choices on the ballot.

  • sjmom

    “low voter turnout”. Could it be that opposition was squashed through threats? I will pray for my brothers and sisters in Egypt that God will provide passage to a safe haven where they may freely worship our Lord and Savior.

  • poljunkie

    I’m blown away.

    OK, not really. As you said RScoop, we knew this was coming.

  • RocklinConservative

    Well, with lower voter turnout, voter fraud is more effective.

    • 12grace

      It was probably as legitimate as our last presidential election…

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Good one!

    I’m “blown” away by this result!

    I hope the Christians in the middle east stay put. They are a Hardy tough lot. Made of sterner stuff than us weak Christians in the falling west.

    They’ve been there for 2000 years. If only us in the peaceful west can live for 200 yeads.

    • Orangeone

      I’ll give Egypt 100 moooslums from the US for 1 of their Christians! If we run out of moooslims, we can ask Canada if they would chip in.

    • 12grace

      Christians under Shari’a law will be slaughtered, they can’t stay.

  • Orangeone

    Can we trade the US mooooslims for Egypt’s Christians now?

  • Conniption Fitz

    What choices do they have, Islam or Islam. It’s a lose-lose situation.

  • Egypt should be put on the State Department’s ‘state sponsors of terror’ list, and if I was president, I’d have that added, overnight. If you think the Middle East is in dire straits, now, wait’ll I sit behind the desk in the Oval Office.

    Special Forces are masters of chaos, and I’d make them earn their keep. Sending them into the Middle East, I’d have them wear indigenous clothes and start engaging in assassinations against al-Qaeda and Asshat regime Tier 1 personalities, as well as send SF and Rangers (and maybe even SeAL teams) into “Palestine”, Egypt and Iran. I’d insure fingers would be pointing at everyone, with the exception of Israel, and protect them with a CSG (Carrier Strike Group) in littoral waters, complete with USSOCOM CIF (Commander in Extremis Force). I’d pick off Egyptians, and blame people directly from the House of Saud. I’d have al-Qaeda terrorists killed, and blame collusions between Hesbollah and the PFLP. I’d have Asshat personalties killed, and blame Iran, directly, and their proxy murderers, Hamas. I’d even target Soviets (like Puddinhead). Dead or not, once a bullet struck him, or whizzed by his balding head, as soon as he was told the Chechyens had something to do with it, that’s another obstacle to world peace down. In the meantime, I’d use Special Forces to arm and train Copts to defend themselves, and possibly stand by to overthrow the Egyptian dictators so they could install a secular, fair, republican government. In the aftermath, I’d remember what Mark Levin said:

    “Nobody kills Muslims, like Muslims.”

    Let them burn down their own houses, kill their own families, and stand back and watch the show with a bucket of kettle corn in the WH Situation Room. In the meantime, we’d be working on achieving security, while the Muslims would be working on time travel, so they could go back to the 7th century.

    • 3d81

      Yeah good idea but wont work. They’ll just blame Israel.

      • We’re not dealing with geniuses, here. These are idiots that burn down their own cities, because of rumors a retarded guy picked up their Book of Satan with the left hand, instead of the right. These are the same people that proscribe camal piss as a health and beauty product:

        …and the women are stupid enough to quaff a few cups of it.

        Just put up a couple of videos of guys in black pajamas with pillow cases on their heads, throw in a couple of “Admiral Ackbars” in their anti-infidel rants, and they’ll believe they’ve all the proof they need to start a region-wide war against every other Islamic nation. Sure, some are going to target Israel, but they’ve already shown what they can do, even when fighting multiple nations, in just SIX DAYS. Add to that a USNCSG (United States Navy Carrier Strike Group) operating in full support/spearhead mode alongside IDF and MOSSAD forces, and I’m pretty sure Israel has very little to worry about. Make a good enough campaign, and you can get the Muslims to blow up the Mecca, THEMSELVES, then fight amongst themselves (to the death) as to which nation has the “holiest” remaining site.

    They better get the heck out of there. Go to Israel and help the Jews fight off the incoming onslaught.

  • See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt.
    The idols of Egypt tremble before him,
    and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.

    “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—
    brother will fight against brother,
    neighbor against neighbor,city against city,kingdom against kingdom.
    The Egyptians will lose heart,
    and I will bring their plans to nothing;
    they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead,
    the mediums and the spiritists.

    Isaiah 19:1-3

    But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God.
    My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
    Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake.
    Psalm 31:14-16

  • So… they’ll be clinging to their religion?

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      In the eyes of Zero, just as long as it isn’t a Bible.

    • tinlizzieowner

      And guns. 😉

  • 12grace

    obama must be so proud.

  • Nukeman60

    Two things come to mind:

    One, I fully expect the Caliphate anyway, so we need to figure out how Israel can stand against it.

    And, two, it took long enough for Obama to get his election software over there to help them out. Isn’t science wonderful. 😛 (Now, it needs to go back down to Venezuela, where it belongs. Chavez said it was only a loan).

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    So Sharia it is! Egypt needs a delegation from our women’s rights groups to make a trip to Egypt and organize protests decrying past, present, and future torture, mutilation, and murder of women. I believe all they will need is a one-way ticket. No need to make plans for a return trip…guaranteed.

    • tinlizzieowner

      You notice that you never hear the American ‘Women’s Liberalizations’ talking about the plight of women living under the boot of Islam. Not even the Islam of Detroit and other major cities, right here in the USA.
      Situational Hypocrites.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        I don’t know what they are going to do with the whole Detroit/Dearborn area. An easy fix would be a low-yield tactical projectile, but the radiation would make the area uninhabitable.

  • badbadlibs

    The world gets more dangerous by the moment under bo’s lack of leadership and when he does interject anything, he brings whatever he touches to ruin.
    All in the plans of this vile, wretched man in the WH. He was born to be a tool of darkness which, in the end will usher in the 2nd Coming of the blessed and only Potentate, Jesus, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the great Creator become our Savior!!!
    Get ready….there’s much to face and overcome before that great and fearsome day!

  • Yazz55

    The goal of the muslim brotherhood in Egypt is to create a new caliphate. The end justifies the means. Seems like they conducted the vote just like they do in Chicago to insure who wins.

  • Will Obama invite Middle Eastern Christians to come to America for their own safety or will he ignore them while prancing on the beach during his four million dollar vacation in Hawaii? I am just a peasant asking these questions while I still have some protection under the First Amendment. Will we lose our Second Amendment rights with crazy uncle Joe at the helm? Is he still blaming the truck driver for the death of his first wife?

  • Rocco11

    The Obama Caliphate

  • tinlizzieowner

    You know why there is a crescent moon on the Islamic flag, right?
    They’re Lunatics. 😉 😉

  • Conniption Fitz

    MEANWHILE – Christianity is being extinguished, and Christians slaughtered across Africa, the Middle East and Asia. – CHRISTIANITY close to extinction in the middle east (be sure and read the comments)

    The Obama administration and the media are silent. Most of the Western Church is silent. Some church leaders, like the Archbishop of Canterbury, speak out for Sharia law, socialism, use the church to promote homosexuality and speak out against free speech and capitalism.

  • It’s not that democracy has come to Egypt… It’s more the Muzziecuddelclub has learned how to play the political games. Under the guise of democratic elections, they force their agenda and people upon the masses and then call it a “fair, free election.”

    The libtard media will then, like well trained sheep, call it a “fair, free election” and hail it as something special. Afterall, it fits their agenda and their “thinking” (I know, they think?????)

    The Christians in Egypt are now in great danger of being murdered and raped (and I don’t just mean the women either, look it up) What a wonderful Christmas they have to look forward to this year.

    NObama, the Islamic Trojan Horse… Will remain dutifully silent about the the Christian purge that is sure to follow. After all, they’re only Christians… Not muzzies, so they don’t count, right manchild?

    The voter turnout was low… Probably because of the intimidation. Now THAT is something the Community disOrganizer would know something about!

    There are times I begin to wish the Mayans were right.

  • aposematic

    One would think a consumer oriented Nation such as America would understand the concept of how you get what you pay for works.

  • Well, we now lose another former ally. It was inevitable.

  • jdelaney3

    Democracy = Mob Rule & tyranny

    A Democratic Republic = Freedom.

  • 57thunderbird

    Imagine my surprise.Iran 2.0

  • Totally shocked! I thought these guys wanted Democracy and not an Islamic cesspit…oh wait, this is EXACTLY what they wanted. It will be open season on Christians and pretty much everyone else. Make sure that we never point this out or we’ll be “Islamophobic” (a nice little term that means nothing) and “bigots”. Syria is set on down this path as well and mark my words, Jordan is next.

  • WordsFailMe

    Can’rt wait until the Muslims start grind down the stones in the pyramids and blast the rotting sandstone from Sphinx so they can build another monument to the jackal.

    Am I the only one that is sick of hearing about how wonderful the ancient, arrogant, racist, repressive, incestuous, dirt worshiping egyptians were? What did Egypt contribute to the modern world? A blueprint for tyranny? Death worship? Embalming? A toilet break on the way to civilization? Frankly, I cant wait until the muz bulldoze the valley of the kings.

    If the muslims wipe the memory of bs egyptian pharaohs from the pages of history forever, they will have done another moderately interesting service to humanity nearing the scale of the arab contribution of zero to mathematics.
