Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood claimed a victory for its candidate Mohammed Morsi on Monday in the country's first presidential vote since its uprising, but his rival Ahmed Shafiq disputed the announcement.
Muslim Brotherhood claims victory in Egyptian presidential elections

I agree with babloyi on this one. You people only follow partial news. The other half of the news is that the military has taken whatever power the President would have had and left it with a pretty empty spot in its stead.
Look up: world.time.com...
Also, since you won't bother reading up on the history of the country first, I shall enlighten you with a fact: the Muslim Brotherhood is not as religious as you think it is. They are pretty much middle of the right compared to the Salafi's right about now. Look up Salafism if you don't know what that means.
But again, it doesn't matter WHO wins the presidency at this point in time. The 'junta' has put its foot down and taken much of the power that would be in Presidency.edit on 20-6-2012 by nusnus because: (no reason given)
I think that at this point in time, a neutral government should be put in place and work on an agreement between both parties to find common ground and hopefully alleviate some tension for the good of the Egyptian people. Its about time some common sense was shown by people and that the value of human lives outweighs the want to have power via religion.
