Brotherhood claims victory in Egypt president vote
 

The Muslim Brotherhood are officially claiming victory in the Egyptian election for President !!

They say the uncounted votes are not enough for the opposing candidate to win.


CAIRO (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.


What will Israel say ?

What will the U.S. say ?

4 percent seperates them and equals 1,000,000.
5 percent of the vote is still out and is more than 1,000,000.
I would say still too close to call.

No matter who wins, I would Imagine the same military leaders who have been in charge for decades will remain in power.

All in the employ of the US.

Yes but they just prevent war from breaking out and they did not stop the revolution.

The people have decided for themselves or will shortly and that is a victory for democracy.
According to Socrates democracy eventually devolves into tyranny, so you know, who is gonna say that a Muslim regime, would not be an effective way to prevent tyranny?

Thats the style of rule they are accustomed to, just like we have our customs, and if you tried to change Christmas for instance, in North America and say no I vote that we do away with Christmas, and instead we do something else, well you're gonna get egged ok?

No, they didn't. Because all the 'revolution' did was oust mubarack, who was their puppet, and they were done with him. The military is still in power, as they have been for decades.

And just think the new Global Counter Terrorism Forum which is supposed to change the way the world fights terrorism chose Egypt to write and run the program on best practices for criminal law.
There still trying to pick a leader and almost every body who they arrested and took out of power were given acquittals.

MB in Egypt has been part of the agenda for a while, they'll end the 30 year peace treaty between Israel and Egypt.

It's all part of the game guys.

Didn't catch this thread before I posted this www.abovetopsecret.com... Otherwise I would have added it here. I take a leap and dig a little deeper into the US/Brotherhood relationship.

Once again, the pace is picking up in that region. Now with Egypt in an absolute upheaval Syria and Libya are next in the timeline. Unfortunately, a Syrian conflict will involve NATO troops much like we saw in Libya.. It's getting dicey quickly.

Expect resistance from the MB in regards to the military. They've been waiting for this moment for decades. There is plenty of history to suggest that this could be their moment.


The army officers who seized power in 1952 turned against the Brotherhood two years later, jailing its leaders along with thousands of their supporters. Mubarak, mentor of the generals who succeeded him, spent most of his 29 years in office cracking down on the group.

The Brotherhood has spent most of the 84 years since its inception as an outlawed group, a time it used to master underground work and discipline its members. Also over the years, it has built a reputation for opportunism and backroom deals.

Secular activists say the group has abandoned them during a series of anti-military protests in the 16 months since Mubarak's ouster in which security forces used deadly force. At the time, they claim, the Brotherhood was close to realizing its dream of political domination and did not want to do anything to upset the generals.


Gotta wonder who is playing who over there??

Exactly. NO power has shifted hands whatsoever. The same military who has run the place for 3 decades and has been in the pockets of the Americans the entire time is still in charge. They just got the public to establish a sort of coupe, so they could get rid of Mubarrack. Nothing else has changed other than his departure.

So the Muslim Brotherhood won.

This is far from over.

There is no constitution. The president has no power; that was taken away. And there is no parliament.

Then there is the court case about the legality of the MB's political party, which never acquired permission to exist, that has yet to be ruled on.
