Muslim Brotherhood candidate elected President of Egypt
Results just announced. 51.73% to 48.27.
You can watch Al-Jazeera English live stream. You also can follow the #Egypt hastag on Twitter.
Now we’ll find out if they still plan on marching on Jerusalem.
Remember, when the protests against Mubarak broke out in January 2011, the Muslim Brotherhood said it would not run a presidential candidate in order to dupe Western useful idiots like The NY Times and the Obama administration into believing the revolution was heading someplace other than Islamist control.
We saw this coming back then, but the mainstream media fell in love again, and covered up what really was going on.
The story is not over, but it is written.

Update: Alert — there is a video uploaded to YouTube which has been embedded at many blogs which purports to be President-elect Mohamed Morsi leading a large crowd chanting about marching on Jerusalem. While I can’t be postive, that looks like Cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi (referred to in some of my posts linked above) not Morsi. Memri says it’s cleric Safwat Higazi at a Morsi campaign rally. This doesn’t change the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, but it’s important to be accurate.

No worries. Obama’s own National Security Advisor said the Muslin Brotherhood is just a “secular organization.”
We’re in good hands.
“…the Muslim Brotherhood previously had said it would not run a presidential candidate in order to dupe Western useful idiots like The NY Times and the Obama administration…”
Dupe? Is it really duplicity to tell your allies what they want to hear, knowing they won’t care if it is a lie?
Or is that just collusion?
Remember this guy?
Remember how the press [strike]adored[/strike] adores him?
One of the most hilarious and enduring hoaxes of the 20th century was the “war” fought by dauntless Che and the Castro Rebels against Batista. But I hear it was a kick– a fun way for adolescents to harass adults, loot, rustle a few cows, and play army on week-ends with real guns, maybe even getting off a few shots, usually into the air.
What 17 or 18 year old male could resist? Petty delinquency became not just altruism here, but downright heroism. How many punks get such a window of glory? Normally these stunts land you in reform school. In Cuba in 1958 it might get your picture in the New York Times:
“Comandante Humberto “El Guapo” Fontova shown here relaxing with a bottle of rum and a grateful senorita after smiting the Fascist hordes of the Tyrant Batista in the ferocious Battle of Santa Clara, described by senior correspondent Herbert Matthews as “bloodier than Stalingrad!”
Here’s an insider account of one such “battle” from “Comandante” William Morgan as recounted to Paul Bethel after the glorious victory. Bethel was press attache in Cuba’s U.S. embassy in 1959. It’s in Bethel’s superb and meticulously researched book The Losers:
“We had a helluva time Paul! We used a short-wave radio to broadcast the battle. Eloy and I yelled fake battle commands into the mike while a few of the muchachos shot BARs and pistols into the air for the sound effects. We really whooped it up!”
When Doctor Ernesto Che Guevara went to south America to spread revolution and stamp out the counterrevolutionaries in the towns and villages of Bolivia, he wasn’t playing around.
The good doctor, who actually took the Hippocratic Oath, used baseball bats to beat his victims to death, slowly. Word around the campfire is that he liked the ash wood and workmanship of the Louisville Slugger, which he had imported specially for him. The good Communist he was, he also collected Rolex watches from his victims.
To get parents to denounce their fellow counterrevolutionaries, whether they actually existed or not, Che would work on their kids with the bat and a cigar. Nice fellow… a great hero of The Left.
I just wish the CIA would’ve made him suffer a little
That’s why, when I see someone wearing a Che t-shirt, I want to rip it off and make them eat it… dry.
This from our friends
Crossing Sinai may once again, prove to be…. difficult. However, it concerns me greatly that we gave Egypt M1 Abrams tanks. I’m not sure if they contain the full array of Chobam armor and other systems, but an old, rebuilt M1A1 is still better than a brand-new Russian or Chi-Com tank.
I think Obama’s plan to supply the Abrams to the Egyptians was nixed in the Senate.
Not sure…but we need to be-
Israel’s R&D in the field of armored warfare is often better than ours.
For obvious reasons.
Still… Damned hindsight, anyhow.
We gave them the Abrams a number of years ago, when we replaced the older tanks in the ready reserve that we store in Egypt. Look at some of the video and images from the “Arab Spring,” especially in Cairo and Alexander, and you’ll see some older M1s.
Egypt has over 1,000 M1 tanks in inventory. How many are operational now is of course the real question. If anyone has any brains at all, various key spare parts are in VERY SHORT SUPPLY.
And more importantly, the training and motivation of Egyptian tankers is the real key.
But, when the next war in the Sinai comes, Israeli troops will be killed by American-built weapons.
Well, not for the first time, either.
I hope a lot of those M-1s have that special, special LoJack feature that blocks out their control systems.
I don’t think that’s Morsi in video, it looks like cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi
Here’s the update. This sets the record straight: “From MEMRI: Egypt’s Safwat Hagazy, ‘Muslim Brotherhood Will Liberate Jerusalem”.
Another Obama success story. Way to go, Mr. President. Bowing and kissing ass has really paid off for America.
Aw c’mon, give Obama a break. You can’t kiss somebody’s ass standing straight up – you HAVE to bow.
“I can’t believe the Russians lied to me” – Jimmy Carter
I reject the premise that Obama and his bots were “duped”.
Tired, I am, of this “Obama is so stupid, he screws everything up!”
Any idiot that can click a mouse know exactly who the Brotherhood are, and what they want-
The narrative was set early–Raven touched on it.
Egyptian Secular Parties Blast Obama Administration for Supporting Muslim Brotherhood
Google “Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood”
Yea. Obama was just supporting democracy, and the Brotherhood accidentally came to power.
I’m with you, Dog. There was a reason that murderous organization was given access to OUR house back in April. If it walks like a duck…
Yes… while ineptitude really looks bad, there is some wiggle room. But outright betrayal? That’s altogether different. I agree with you that this was planned.
If this was a video game, Obama would see:
Congratulations! You have unlocked the “Betrayed Israel” Accomplishment! Unlock 137 more to achieve Destroyed America.
We know damn well what’s really bothering you, that a Black family is occupying the White House.
One thing is for sure–the readers at this site are horrible at identifying snark/sarcasm.
Yeah, you gotta put that /sarc thingie there! I understood you, if that’s any consolation!
tagless .. iInfidel lol
That twitter Reactions thingy, difficult to develop site social cohesion as it brings in a lot of drive-by respondents.
Do you believe that jackass Geoffrey Fieger ran that commercial on WDIV Detroit at 11am Meet The Press?
Yea-knew you were in trouble from the word go-
Me, I’ll stay tagless….defiantly sarcastic-
I just read about this election on HuffPo. Gosh. Headline: “Egypt Election Ushers in New Era.” Although it mentions the Muslim Brotherhood, it takes great pains to make sure the candidates seemed bland – as if they were two boring guys running for Water Quality Board Supervisor in a quiet North Dakota town. Very Walter Duranty.
Here’s my favorite comment under the article. See if you can spot any flashes of reality in it. (I failed at the game.)
CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT………..But lets hope ISIS & Hathor are sending down their Goddess Blessings from above to the Women of Egypt….. ITS time THE whole WORLD learn The UNCONDITIONAL love that YESHUA BEN JOSIF(jesus) HAD in HIS HEART……WOW , lets give the EGYPTIAN people a CHANCE to prove them selves HERE!!!!!!!! LOVE is the ANSWER , not NEGATIVITY!!!!!! LOVEnLIGHTnBLESSINGS to the PEOPLE OF EGYPT
Somebody needs to stay away from jobs where a drug screen is required. It’s a perfect example of naivete that infects the whole Left, where feeeeeeeeeeeeelings count more than facts and/or reality. If the Muzzie Brotherhood grabs Isis and Prancer and Dancer and whomever else, they’ll stone ’em at sunrise. No love. No kittens. No groups hugs. Just death by stones on the filthy courtyard of some mosque. I’m equally sure that poster gives Obama high marks on foreign policy!
I’m just excited because if Isis shows up can Captain Marvel be far behind? SHAZAM!
Like beating your pregnant wife to death because she didn’t vote for Morsi?
Yep, there’s so much LOVE out there that one Egyptian man beat his pregnant wife to death because she didn’t vote for the Muslim Brotherhood candidate.
Rational people saw where this was going when Mubarak was overthrown. Do we live in an alternate reality that many saw what others refused to see?
Collusion Rags… yes, what else can it be? I too do not ascribe to the bumbling, uninformed schtick. The administration knew and knows.
Sorry, that should say “Collusion, Dog” not Rags. Wrong person.
Browndog: “I reject the premise that Obama and his bots were “duped”.
Tired, I am, of this “Obama is so stupid, he screws everything up!”
Remember when the whole country was a captive audience to the likes of Tim Russert and the NYT? Now we know how corrupt they are and that the truth was never in them.
They, news readers and politicians alike, are fine with some people thinking they are just stupid and ill-informed when giving their opinions or excuses as long they can get their lie out to further the agenda.
So every time someone calls bull on giving them cover by saying they were just duped or stupid or confused rather then calling them the black hearted, self serving, sell-outs they are – I will say Hurray, Amen!
Let’s not forget the words of the sage, Jimmy Carter, about the Muslim Brotherhood in May of 2012, essentially laying out the framework for the MB abrogating the Egyptian treaty with Israel on the grounds that the rights of “Palestinians” had not been upheld: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/05/30/Jimmy-Carter-Agrees-With-The-Muslim-Brotherhood
Oh cynics. It’s Republicans who are waging the real war on women. In this uber-Democracy there will be no need for free condoms. Nah. Just bag the whole female. /sarc
[…] good news is that he barely squeaked in. Egyptians elected a Muslim Brother Mohamed Morsi to be the President of their country. Here he is, rapping that […]
One thing that Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama have in common is Zbigniew Brziznski as a foreign policy advisor. That does lend some credence to the “dupe” theory.
The difference between Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama can be found in “Dreams of My Fathers” where Barack Obama outlines his “don’t scare the white folk” philosophy — known in other circles as “The Big Lie.”
I’ll get you linked up a little later. Meanwhile: ‘ Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi Declared Winner in Egypt’s Presidential Election’.
For some reason, the public fails to remember history, that revolutions by the people typically are succeeded by the reign of tyrannical regimes. I suspect that part of this is the misnomer “American Revolution”, actually a war of secession or independence, led in large part by persons already in power in the colonies — not a “revolution” in the sense of overthrowing the government (no one overthrew the British monarchy).
An excellent point that is almost always overlooked.
AYe Aye Sailor. The British went immediately on to defeat France in the West Indies breaking their navy & bankrupting Louis .
Then they ruled the seas for the next century & a half plus gained a whole continent.
Then they joined the EU & began their slide .
Everyone – especially the idiots pretending to be conservative – who claimed the Arab spring was a good thing MUST see and hear the real Arab spring:
“Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina – it shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing!” “Our cry shall be: Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem – Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem – Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem – Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem – Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem…”
“Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem…”
Or as the mainstream media will report it: “Hey! Justin Bieber got a new haircut!”
May they march toward and be martyred before they get there.
Guess who’s next:
Watch your back, bro.
To my “thumbs down”er…
Instead of having an emotional reaction, I invite you to educate yourself….for the betterment of yourself-
Start with this:
Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, Egypt; from trenches to Power and the CIA
Mind you, this is written from a particular perspective-
However, it contains more facts than you read in the NYT or WaPo pertaining to the topic.
Take it for a spin-
Then get back to me.
Obama probably told the brotherhood before the “revolution”, just say you won’t be running for president, you’ll have more flexibility after the overthrow.
Hard to tell what kind of flexibility Obama thinks he will have after his own election. We’d have to ask Russia or the brotherhood to find out.
Further, I’ve had it up to here with Hilary doing Obama’s bidding in world affairs, yet come out clean as a whistle, smelling like a rose.
Member of Egyptian Terror Group Goes to Washington
In an interview, Eldin confirmed he is a member of Gamaa Islamiya. By U.S. law, that means he would be denied a visa to enter the country. Nonetheless, he says, he got a visa from the State Department. A State Department spokesman said, “We have no information suggesting that he or anyone else in the delegation is a member of the Egyptian Islamic Group.”
I’d love to see a good blogger, such as Mr. Donald Douglas, put together a good mash-up of Hilary’s shenanigans as Secretary of State.
Any Egyptian military march on Jerusalem and there would most likely be another US led “Highway of Death” like that during the Gulf War.
Hell, Like Mitla Pass in 1967 and The Chinese Farm in 1973!!
1. This was to be expected. It would be news had it turned out differently.
2. …Western useful idiots like The NY Times and the Obama administration into believing the revolution was heading someplace other than Islamist control.
And like George W. Bush. While I respect the element of idealism in American foreign policy, it takes leaders of stature to harmonize such idealism with the national interest. Limited men should restrict themselves to limited agendas.
3. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s popularity is at a high because of her “achievements” as Secretary of State. (Cf. Browndog.)
4. Notwithstanding America’s advantages and blessings, the elite’s cluelessness about how history operates is an ominous sign. (I am sensitive, maybe too much so, to how history operates because my family came here as destitute refugees. I prefer Reagan’s peace through strength to Bush’s babble about “freedom revolutions”, let alone the cynical palaver of Obama and Hillary.)

I re-looked at the entire post WWII Egypt history – think about it this way all the leader-rulers since the Coup in ’52 were the “Egyptian Military”
Of them Sadat and his Israeli recognition and peace treaty appears the most benevolent. It was definitely the most stable.
Prime question is how many non muslims are there in the Legislature and in the civilian population?
What most Americans aren’t told is how many different religions there are among Israeli citizens AND Members of the Knesset.
Bringing up Ayers reminds me there was another close Obama friend …Khalidi? who was very Gaza/Hamas centered.

Breitbart Big Government had a very good post in 2010 with this title
“Did Muslim Brotherhood Learn ‘Day of Rage’ Egypt Protest Tactics From Obama Allies Bill Ayers and Code Pink?”
After Andrews death they reorganized their permalink heirachy so my saved BG bookmark just brings up the BG homepage/
I found the reference at the wilder “Freerepublic” website
via a google search for the “days of rage” quote.
the only other links I had in this thread were to primary or subordinate sites under David Horowitz’s frontpagemag.com
Frontpagemag.com and it’s subordinate sites should be in everybody’s “Resource List” bookmarks
I spent an hour or two with the Breitbart search engine which got me this ‘today in 2012’ link to a synopsis of their 29 jan 2011 article
This is not the original and does not say much about the Bill Ayers or Soros organization involvement in the 2009 Egypt “Days of Rage” training sessions.

Let’s put things into a little perspective:
The World Trade Center
1993, the “Blind Shek”, convicted of orchestrating the attack, has a member of his terrorist organization invited to the White House THIS week.
2001, Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, co-founder of al Qaida, successfully destroyed the Trade Center.TODAY, As a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, he reads the news that, with the aid of the White House, his organization is now in power in Egypt, where he once was imprisoned.
This may not be a fair statement, but seems to be the reality:
If you’ve bombed the World Trade Center, you’ve got a friend in the White House.
Yea, I said it.
Looks like the Arab Spring (as the media dubbed it) has yielded more totalitarian fruit. Thanks for nothing, New York Times.
Didn’t the Occupy Wall Sreet movement compare itself favorably to the Arab Spring? Make sense, when you recall that murder, rape and robbery by a bunch of genocidal maniacs is the most memorable aspect of OWS.
Baruk Hashem Adonai The G-d of Israel has spoken the Tanakh:
Isaiah 19: 18 –21. “In that day five cities in Egypt will speak the language of Canaan [i.e. Hebrew] and swear allegiance to the LORD Almighty. One of them will be called the City of Destruction. In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, He will send them a Saviour and Defender, and He will rescue them. So the LORD will make Himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the LORD”…
Isaiah 19:23. “In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together”…
Isaiah 19: 24 & 25. “In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the Earth. The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt My people, Assyria My handiwork, and Israel My inheritance.” These last 3 prophecies represent a huge change in attitudes and beliefs ~ but the God of Israel, is still the God of miracles! …
Obama calls Egypt’s president-elect Morsi
6/24/12 6:36 PM EDT
President Obama called Egypt’s president-elect Mohamed Morsi to congratulate him on winning Egypt’s election.
Look for the “Politco’s” to tell us all about Egypt, and the Brotherhood….like we have no idea, and are learning for the first time-
Hey, Egypt! Welcome back to the 7th Century!
There hasn’t been this much fun in Egypt in 1400 years!
Note To Egypt:
1. Israel has nuclear weapons.
2. Attempts to invade Israel by any single Middle East state, given the proximity of so many other anti-Israel states and likely allies to invaders, make defeating an invasion an existential matter for Israel.
3. If a nuclear armed country wouldn’t use nukes to prevent its own total destruction, when do you suppose it would?
4. Whether by conventional means or nuclear, you will very likely achieve half your agenda: martyrdom.
“4. Whether by conventional means or nuclear, you will very likely achieve half your agenda: martyrdom.”
Yeah, and as the joke goes,
“When Osama bin Laden died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, “How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive!!”
Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, “You wanted to end our liberties but you failed.”
James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, “This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!”
Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Osama with a long cane and snarled, “It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence.”
The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical, Islamist leader.
As Osama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Osama wept and Said, “This is not what you promised me.”
The Angel replied, “I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said? You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you something!”
LOL, “Wite On!!”
Not noted here is that Vladimir is in Israel today .
Hillary is not . She is of bill Clintons anti Israel ideology .
This has slipped away from US influence . I wonder if netanyahu even thinks US is an ally. Rusia is nowhere near the strengt of America but they have a million Russians in Israel .
Netanyu thinks theyare a better bet than America to defend them . Hence he looks much happier with Putin than Obama.
Netanyahu cannot wait on the pleasure of the american electorate. He has to arrange his cards now.
“them ‘ being the Russians . It ain’t all but it is a help.
