Ugh. Muslim Brotherhood claims victory in Egypt president vote



This. This. And This.

And now this:

(CBS/AP) – The Muslim Brotherhood has declared that its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, won Egypt’s presidential election.

Morsi “is the first civilian, popularly elected Egyptian president,” the group says on its website.

The declaration was based on returns the Brotherhood reported from 95 percent of the more than 13,000 polling stations nationwide. The returns showed Morsi with 52 percent of the vote, his opponent former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq with 48 percent. A million votes separated the two, which a Brotherhood spokesman said the remaining votes could not overcome the difference for Shafiq.

The figures were from results announced by election officials at individual counting centers, where each campaign has representatives who compile the numbers and make them public before the formal announcement. The Brotherhood’s early, partial counts proved generally accurate in last month’s first round vote.

The final official result is to be announced by Thursday.

Earlier, as vote counting began in Egypt’s election for the successor to Hosni Mubarak, the ruling military issued an interim constitution Sunday that handed themselves the lion’s share of power over the new president, enshrining their hold on the state and sharpening the possibility of confrontation with the Muslim Brotherhood.

With parliament dissolved and martial law effectively in force, the generals made themselves the country’s lawmakers, gave themselves control over the budget and will determine who writes the permanent constitution that will define the country’s future.

That could set Egypt on the path of continued turmoil, particularly if conservative Islamist Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood emerges the victor in the presidential run-off against Ahmad Shafiq, Mubarak’s last prime minister. Already, the Muslim Brotherhood was warning that they would launch protests if Shafiq is declared the winner.

  1. Good job Obama. Work to lay the groundwork for violent muslim extremism to expand and take power in the world. The claim this will not happen didn’t go very far did it (?), and…Obama…I think you knew what would happen in the end. I’d bet it put a smile on your Islamic butt kissing face.

  2. I wonder how long the priceless artifacts there will remain safe. I wonder how long the Coptic Christians who are still alive will remain so. What a disgrace.

  3. This is frightening for the entire world. Obama is likely to embrace it.
    That makes it downright spooky!

  4. As with Hamas, it will be one man, one vote, one time. Either the Army will step in to maintain order permanently, or there will be a civil war and the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood along with the Salafists will take over the country. If either one happens, you will never see another election in Egypt. And if there is one, it will be a sham like the ones they have in Iran or Syria. This is a part of the world where whoever has the most guns wins. Or, as Mao used to say, “Political power comes from the barrel of a gun.” You will never see any real democracy in that part of the world. Which is what makes Israel even more special and important to us. Instead of following the Israeli model, Egypt is determined to become a dictatorship again. It will either be by a general or a mullah, but it certainly will NOT be a democracy. Count on it.

      1. Such a shame too…much of the world’s history and culture can be found in Egypt.
        I was fortunate enough to visit in the early sixties and it was one of the most exciting places I have ever been.
        The King Tut display, the camel ride around the Great Pyramid, the climb inside to the top, the Nile River, the market, so many, many things to remember….sad for the entire world that it may be over.

  5. I think it is time to send in a battle tested electioneer, someone that is fair, impartial and above all above politic to hand count the vote… Go JIMMY Go!!!

    Please stay there and build houses when you are through counting…

  6. GREAT JOB Brother!

    ———- NOW the fun begins

    ————–We don’t have enough agents, drones, bombs, etc. to cover all the training camps that will pop up

    AND don’t forget to send them MORE MONEY so they can buy more stuff to kill us with

    THAT IS ALL!

  7. Ticking time bomb.

    I’m so happy to know Obama supported this mess, that we pump billions of U.S. Dollars and military hardware into this quagmire, and that radical Muslims are taking over while surrounding Israel. Sarcasm of course. This all contributes to end times prophecy in the bible.

    1. that we pump billions of U.S. Dollars and military hardware into this quagmire

      And this has been done by BOTH PARTIES. Both ‘rats and Repubicans agree that we should directly aid our enemies.

  8. Wasn’t it Morsi that recently said that Islam would make a second conquest of Eqypt and that Christians can either convert to Islam, pay the jizya or get out? Yeah he did. That Arab Spring thing is working out real well isn’t it?

  9. NObama’s plans for Egypt seem to be going ahead nicely. 🙁 Bad news for America and for Western Europe and of course Israel! I can’t remember a single example of NObama working for OUR benefit! Not a single one!

  10. The obamessiah must be smiling and declaring success in Egypt

    put a big check next to this item on the “fundamental change” agenda

  11. This is all Obamas doing. Arab Spring my butt! This is going to lead to an Arab nuclear winter!

  12. The MB will quickly establish an Islamic state with full Islamic law; they will also increase hostilities with Israel. Mark my words on that.

    And yes, this is all Obama’s fault. It’s an absolute travesty, quite frankly.

  13. Well if history of the middle east is anything to go by then america better get ready to lose more of its sons in the future when they would have to go over there and fight this rabble for whatever reason.

      1. AW Nukefriend!!!! I love it!!! 😀 Have you been peaking on my facebook page when I wasn’t looking? Did I advertise it?! How did you know! It’s also mine and my honey’s 12th Anniversary too 🙂 Thank you so much my dear friend!!! (((( ♥ ))))s God Bless!!!

        1. I could say something clever like, “since I have access to nuclear grade plutonium, I have sources”, but that would get me in trouble with the internet police. So I’ll tell the truth and say I saw this post 3 days ago:

          Arguments begin on June 18. BONUS HEY! that’s my birthday! Maybe a ruling will be a happy present for me! YAY!‘ – ABiC

          And I just put it in my memory bank. It gave me some time to track down the videos.

  14. And so the ‘Arab Spring’ turns into the formulation of a new Califate. As much as I have disagreed with Beck lately, I will say he proclaimed this when it all started, against the hoots and hollers of the ‘elite’ pundits who said this was merely a democratic uprising of the people. Well, well.

    The original ‘peoples revolt’ was peaceful only because the military allowed it to be so. They wanted Mubarak out and let us believe that it was the protestors doing it. The military has been in control all along.

    1. The military is in control for now and the MB knows this. This is going to be the next power struggle.

      1. I’ve always been worried that the military is in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood and that cannot be good for Israel.

          1. Cool. I own gold and I have guns, so I guess this afternoon, I’ll be talking to Barry about some new rules I have in mind. He doesn’t seem to respond to me on his Blackberry, though. Hmmm…

  15. Obama’s support of the enemies of western civilization and the United States, coupled with his betrayal of long held allies in the Middle-East, during the “Arab Spring”, will have devastating long-term repercussions. For an example, just look at what Carter’s support of the Ayatollah Khomeini and his betrayal of the Shah has wrought in Iran.

    The next administration will have the difficult, if not impossible, task of mitigating the damage of Obama’s anti-Western policies throughout the Middle-East.

  16. According to O’s head of intel Clapper, this should work out just fine because we know they’re a “largely secular” group and all.
    /sarc off

  17. Muslims Win! Bang the gongs! Fire your weapons in the air! Bring in the blondes from CBS! It’s a toga party for the Kaliphate!
