Posted on 06/24/2012 7:39:16 AM PDT by John W

The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi has been declared the winner of Egypt's presidential election run-off.

He won 51.73% of the vote, beating former PM Ahmed Shafiq, the Higher Presidential Election Commission said.

The head of the panel of judges, Farouq Sultan, said it had upheld some of the 466 complaints by the candidates, but that the election result still stood.

I’m sure Obama is celebrating with a reading from the koran and a halal breakfast. His plan is on schedule.

Obama is on course to create the Greater Caliphate and prepare for the destruction of Israel and a frontal Islamic assault on the West.

Very strange. Even the democrat blogs are frightened by the results. You'd think they'd be celebrating with their brothers. They have no idea who's behind this "Muslim spring." They think their extreme left wing had nothing to do with it?

Well said. This election reminds me of the election in Germany back in 1932.

Arab Spring didn't turn it quite the way the Left had hoped, did it?

Can we stop sending Egypt $1.5 billion each year in foreign aid now?

Well, The Obamanation's Hope & Change wins... another one!

And when the New Muslim Brotherhood run Egypt reputes the peace treaty with Israel and gets ready for a new war, me thinks... better than 60 percents of American Jews will still support Obama.

Yep, you cannot... make this stuff up!

Yes. No more women voting but probably the last real election any way.

Interesting times, indeed.

Similar to how Iran went under Carter. We can only “hope for the change” that Obama will be a one term president too.

True, but they weren't exactly radical islamist states, either. It's looking like we're about to have 3 more in the regiion, thanks to Obama's meddling.

This is a major disaster. Now the people (idiots) in Egypt are not going to experience democracy, they are going to experience terrorism, and opression. Live and learn.

I hope liberals are happy with the muslim they put in the WH, thanks to their love of their messiah they might all have a hand in the “attempted” destruction of Israel. If any Jews die, I hold the dem/libs responsible.

Who thinks the military is done yet? The army will lose but it may not be pretty. Overthrow of totalitarian regimes is frequently (we are a fairly unique exemption) followed by some theocracy. We can only hope the reformation doesn’t take centuries. Some of this can be blamed on the treatment of the more westernized segments of Iran and Egypt. The change was slow that many are now in the west. Especially the Iranians.

What truly bothers me is peoples blind ignorance. I just read on another thread that a muslim beat his pregnant wife to death for not voting for Mursi. I guess the name of his newly elected muslim brotherhood messiah escaped him (mursi/mercy). They don’t know the word much less its meaning.

Obama has been in talks with the brotherhood and I can’t help but think that he is in elbow deep in the arab spring and its disasterous results. Our democracy is at stake and that truly troubles me. I worry about the future, but we all know that what happens then is dependant on what we as a people and a nation do this Nov.

We must make the right decision to restore our freedoms and respect around the world that the muslim-n-chief has destroted.

I was referring to Germany's parliamentary election of 1932, which resulted in Hitler's appointment as Chancellor.

From there, everything went downhill fast. Same thing will happen in Egypt.

Which would be a conservative outcome of WW3 - Middle East edition.

A piece from a while back reflects the similarities between Islam and Communism.

http://beyondthecusp.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/similarities-between-islam-and-communism/

If you view these similarities as accurate, is it any wonder that some of the Liberals in power in our Government may be happy with the new Egyptian Government?

The initial post was about the 1932 German Presidential election. Which Hitler lost to Paul von Hindenburg. Hitler wasn’t appointed Chancellor until 30 January 1933.

Yeah, Hitler was horrible. We all know that. However, the German people didn’t elect him in the election referred to by that post.

There goes Israel's plans to attack Iran.

They can't afford a war on two fronts - and Obama won't help.

In “Audacity of Hope”, page 261, Barack Hussein Obama writes:

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Pray for Israel. . and our Sacred Republic.
