While Newsweek declared Obama blew it on their February 2011 cover, we’d argue everything is going according to plan. Back in 2009 and before Creeping Sharia was alerting the tiny minority of folks who pay attention that Obama was embracing and legitimizing the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi has officially won Egypt’s presidential election and will be the country’s next president, the electoral commission has announced.Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote in the runoff round.His competitor, Ahmed Shafiq, the final prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million votes.More than 800,000 ballots were invalidated.
Despite Morsi’s victory, many of those questions about his power remain unanswered.
“This is not the end of the game, it’s a start of a huge responsibility,” el-Haddad told Al Jazeera.
“It comes with more challenges, turning from being the largest opposition group in Egypt to leading the country with its national front.”
Shortly before the polls closed last week, the generals issued a decree sharply limiting the powers of the new president. It permitted him to declare war, for example, only with the approval of the military council.
SCAF will also keep control of legislative power, and the budget, until a new parliament is elected.
Egyptians went to the polls in November to elect a legislature, which was dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, but it was dissolved earlier this month after a high court ruling found parts of the electoral law unconstitutional.
Saad el-Katatni, the speaker of the now-dissolved parliament, also met officials from SCAF, and told them that the Brotherhood would not accept the court ruling or the election-night decree.
But it is unclear whether the Brotherhood ultimately accepted those decisions in exchange for the presidency.
Either way, the military council – which has promised to hand over power to a civilian government on June 30, in a “grand ceremony” – will remain a powerful force in Egyptian politics, despite the election of a civilian president.
The impact was felt even before the verdict declared, via Christians Already Leaving Egypt:
Egypt (MNN) ― Protesters are already in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt’s Presidential Election Commission announced yesterday they are delaying the results of this week’s presidential election indefinitely. The commission says they’re investigating election irregularities. Egyptians are in Tahrir Square demanding the results be released.
Rody Rodeheaver, President of IN Network USA, describes the atmosphere. “I’ll just quote my director there. He says ‘it’s just crazy.’ He’s referring to the atmosphere. He’s referring to the confusion. Everything that they thought they had gained has fallen apart.”
Rodeheaver says it’s not only a confusing time for the average Egyptian, but especially for Christians. He was told that most Christians voted for Ahmed Shafik. “Even though he represents going back to the Mubarak era, they were much more comfortable with him than they were with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Why? Rodeheaver says, “The institution of Sharia Law will basically stymie Egypt’s ability economically, politically, and religiously to really have any kind of freedom.”
And even with mounds of evidence, as the Muslim Brotherhood told the world they wanted sharia law the Obama admin and the media told us the Brotherhood was not a threat, a secular organization, had no interest in sharia law and no chance of winning the election it was clear the Muslim Brotherhood was shaping up to be everything Obama said it wasn’t.
Also keep in mind elected officials and the media also keep lying to Americans stating Muslims living in America don’t want sharia yet earlier this week we told you that Over 75% of Egyptian Americans Voted For Muslim Brotherhood & sharia.
