Skip to comments.(Israeli politician Yossi) Beilin: The Egyptian Army Rigged the Election
Posted on 08/18/2013 6:45:20 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Former minister Yossi Beilin revealed in a column published in the Israel Hayom daily on Sunday that the Egyptian army rigged the results of last years presidential elections, in which Islamist Mohammed Morsi was declared the winner.
The source who asked to remain anonymous told Beilin that former president Hosni Mubaraks last prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, won the race by a narrow margin. But the army generalswanting to ensure that law and order would be upheld following the electionsfeared that if Morsi was defeated, the Muslim Brotherhood would refuse to recognize the results and would end up conducting themselves just as they are now.
The official results, 51.73% for Morsi and 48.27% for Shafiq, were almost the exact reversal of what actually happened at the polls, wrote Beilin.

no it makes sense the people got to see how much fun rule under the MB would be and they got sick of it pretty quick
Nevertheless, the "win" (or not) by Morsi put them in power and showed everyone the true face of the MB. They're feckless, power-hungry ideologues who cannot find their asses with both hands and a map, but excel in turmoil.
> Ah, yes, get him into office so they see how much he sucks. BRILLIANT! /sarc
Although it explains how Obama got into office twice.
0 probably trained them on how to rig it.
if they are so brilliant why are they moslems and they are the military they can take him out at any time so why not mubarak was supported by the military or he wouldnt have lasted as long as he did
to give stalin a smile in hades.

‘Egypt gov’t sources: Shafik to be named president’ (Muslim Brotherhood loses!!!)
Egypts high court keeps Shafiq in race, suggests partial disbandment of parliament
I was for Mubarak from way back because an Egyptian told me he wasn’t that bad. This is what we get with the media pushing the Arab Spring and it was on some mainstream boards as well. These things almost always turn out badly,
Oh I don’t know. Freepers say Morsi cheated but aren’t bothering to explain how he did it with the military keeping it honest.
I think the place is a mess and we need to stay as far away from it as possible.
I agree creek. Too bad our elected see it as their fight and ours. If we have to go back, am against a half way method. All or nothing but our elected want a means to line their pockets at the People’s expense (imho).
“The place is a mess..we need to stay away.”
I agree. I can’t for the life of me tell who the”good guys” are. And, sadly I don’t think our government can either.
Not once have we been involved with a muslim country where one side was dirty and the other side was clean.
My only concern is for the Christians and I’m confused about why the Egyptian military has suddenly lost the ability to protect them.
My gut just tells me that there is something very wrong here.
Walking the same path creek, ever since 911.
there’s something happinin here
what it is aint exactly clear
theres a man with a gun over there
tellin me i got to beware
Am also reminded of Ohio and Benghazi, in the similarities of it all.
When Yossi Beilin says something on domestic politics you don’t believe a word he says. Why he is getting involved in foreign matters I don’t know. This is like asking Al Sharpton what happened at the Zimmerman trial.
