Posted on 12/03/2011 11:36:57 AM PST by La Enchiladita
Early results from Egypt's first post-revolution election showed Islamist parties sweeping to victory, including hardline Salafists, with secular parties trounced in many areas. Partial figures trickled in for the areas of the country that voted in record numbers on Monday and Tuesday, confirming earlier predictions that Islamist parties would win at least two thirds of the ballots cast.
In Port Said, the moderate Islamist alliance led by the previously banned Muslim Brotherhood triumphed with 32.5% of votes for parties, while the hardline Al-Nur party gained 20.7%, the state-owned Al-Ahram daily said.
The liberal Wafd party won 14%, while another Islamist party Al-Wassat, which advocates a strict interpretation of Islamic law, recorded 12.9%, according to Al-Ahram.

Probably most of the protestors were Liberals. I remember the one guy who worked for Google got a lot of press. Now it turns out the Islamists are the big winners. Can you say Islamic state? I knew you could.
Obama reminds me more of Carter every day.
The comparison is right on. Carter wanted the Shaw gone and look what we got. Obama wanted Mubarak gone and look what we are about to get. Egypt may well elect to cozy up to Iran to the huge disadvantage of Israel and our national security interest as well. Can Libya be far behind?
“The comparison is right on. Carter wanted the Shaw gone and look what we got. Obama wanted Mubarak gone and look what we are about to get. “
One difference may be that Obama appears to specifically want muslim-brotherhood-oriented governments to replace those he topples. The former egyptian foreign minister apparently said in a tv interview that obama told him , among other things, that he supports the ‘muslim agenda.’ The only way you get a muslim agenda between all the muslim countries is by embracing that type of political party.
Egypt just voted for war with Israel.
Good way to kill off what’s left of the tourist industry.
Arab spring makes strange bedfellows and shows how dumb liberals are, to be supporting islamist theocrats who would outlaw everything they hold dear.
You are right about Obama but I'm not so sure that Carter didn't want a muslim government in Iran. I think he did but don't hold me to it.
Still “inspired”, Obama?
It is increasingly clear that the only thing that “liberals” hold dear is the increase in state power, and the only thing they actually are opposed to is the Gospel. Sharia is thus very appealing to “liberals”.
I actually want that word — “liberal” — back. We, American conservatives (and Burkean conservatives on the other side of the pond), are the ones defending liberty and free markets (which is what “liberalism” originally meant). The statists who stole the word can use another, “progressive” or if they really want to be honest “statist”, “dirigiste” or “fascist”.
I made this animated gif a couple of years ago. Spot on.
New rules for Egyptian tourists.
1. Do not take a Bible with you.
2. Women must wear Burka’s or veils.
3. Jewish? Don’t even think about it.
4. I hope you like Halal meals.
5. Get your will up to date before your visit.
6. Remember to face Mecca when you see everyone’s butt go in the air during prayer time.
I was there back in 1977...next time it might not be the Shore Patrol...I sure hope not.
The thought of ever visiting Egypt disappeared for me a long time ago. The news reports of western tourist groups being gunned down by islamic militants pretty much ended that idea. This news just reinforces my thoughts on that.
Yep. There are a lot of countries that fall into that category. I hear that if you go to Paris and end up in the wrong part of town, it could be very bad for you.
Sounds like Washington DC...
Please use VERY small words & tell me again what was so bad about Mubarak????
Here is an interesting link of a list of incidents. Take note of the November 1997 one. http://www.usdivetravel.com/T-EgyptTerrorism.html
This is what Islamic democracy is all about, oppression.
We went to Egypt for a couple weeks traveling all over the country a few years ago. Their historical sites, their food, their culture (at least most of it) was very interesting. I am so glad we went then. I would not go now.
Been to DC and Paris also Israel and Jordan. I had the option of going to Egypt on the same trip to Israel and Jordan and declined. My sister went to Egypt with a high school group. A teacher of hers who was with her on that trip was offered 20 sheep and goats for her. He laughed it off but there was something chilling about the whole thing to me when it was told to me after she had come back.

Check this out and see how many Conservative websites are
infuriated over this propaganda TV:
All American Muslims is an attempt to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to bully them into thinking that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.
The problem people have with Islam is its teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation. The ultimate danger posed by a program presenting the normal side of life for American Muslims is that it isntt accurate.
The danger is in the deception and obfuscation of the truth which results in the intellectual disarming of the American people.
Very cool. Fingers crossed that 2012 will be 1980 all over again.
And get it done before they blow up the pyramids and sphinx.
Without the media ever challenging them on a Theocracy, both Obama and Hillary said it was OK for the people to choose the government they want, and so be it, not one mention of our Constitution and what it means.
‘Show us what Bros-ocracy looks like’....... all the liberal idiots in the media and elsewhere just raved about the Arab Spring democracy. Won’t be long until the Sharia Law tyrants clamp down on ‘democratic freedoms’..... living in a SandRat paradise.
Maybe this time Israel will keep the Sinai?
So much worse....
Interesting turn in Egyptian politics-the Muslim Brotherhood
is considered the “moderate party”.
And Egypt will be wiped out as a result of any war they engage in with Israel.
Psalm 83 coming to a theater near you!
The first thing they’re going to do is insure they never lose power.
I disagree with the comparison to Carter. With Carter it was stupidity and incompetence.
This is what BO wanted.
Let’s get ready to rumble, in this corner, the pride of the scumbags, the source of barbaric culture and the disillusioned followers of the pervert prophet Mohamm...and in the other corner, the apple of the real God’s eye, the people of God, the Israeli’s and friends...
absolutely true, they will come like locust before long..
Amsterdam, Berlin, some really terrible areas of Islamos..
many years ago a friend of mine was traveling around the middle east in a vw van, as he approached a check point in the desert he saw a lady on the side of the road, when he passed her he heard a thump..when he got up to the checkpoint the soldier started screaming and pointed at the bumper, there was blood all over it, the lady had thrown a goat head at him, and came running up saying he killed her baby..they took all cash they could find and let him go..your daughter was lucky..
Yeah, I have heard about Amsterdam...
Turkey voted Gullen and AKP in 2003.
No they love to lie so they will say Mohammad built it..
When the muhammadans unite to make their move against Israel, WWIII will begin, and maybe Civil War II here in the USSA.
I never watch TV comedies but was psyched for the Geico Cavemen comedy series a few years back. Lasted about 5 episodes before it was yanked due to low ratings.
I thought is was funny as all get out, especially the one titled "The Shaver" which was about a guy the cavemen suspected was one of them but was trying to pass himself off as human by shaving his body.
Come to think of it, that same story line could be applied to "All American Muslims" pretty easily.
The Libs, muzzies and the ACLU are doing everything in their power to keep this TV jihad going.
When their sponsors desert them, they will fold.
It’s up to all us good American citizens to boycott and prevent them from destroying all we have done to alert the country to the danger of Islam.
