Seems like the military has managed to roll back almost every gain made by the revolution and Shafik's election would be the nail in the coffin.

Well, as long as they are killing each other they arnt killing anyone else.

Might I suggest we not send female or pretty reporters there for a bit longer. Last time we nearly lost the pretty guy from CNN.

Those 'soldier-friend of the people!' signs may have been premature.

The Arab Spring is over, and Winter is coming. If I could offer one bit of advice to our Egyptian friends, it would be this

"These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated"

Better than having a bunch of militant Islamic whack balls in charge.

Isn't Arab Spring air so fresh and calming?

Yes, militant Ismamic whack glans will do just fine for now, don't you thing, spentmiles?

I really, really hope there is no violence. I don't want any Egyptians hurt, of course, but more selfishly, I have a very good friend visiting Israel and Egypt for the next two and a half weeks, and I don't want anything to happen to her. :(

We've been around how long on this planet now and yet half the people in this world still can't figure out how to govern themselves decently.

I thought this is what everyone wanted because Democracy isn't valid when muslims win elections.
 
2012-06-15 01:35:12 PM
"Moussa said the previously instituted constitutional panel was "unsatisfactory for many parties" because of the influence in it held by the Muslim Brotherhood."

The most important part of that story was the last line.

Hey Egyptian military, ya we really don't like the Muslim Brotherhood having a chance to grab this much power in your country, and if you like all that aid you are getting we think it is a good idea for you to dissolve parliament. Also if you could give us a new Mubarak that would be swell

If she's visiting Israel first and then Egypt i would suggest not wearing anything with Hebrew letters or flags on bags and such. Egyptian mobs tend to get rapey.
I also suggest dressing modestly to prevent this.

Would you prefer that the Muslim brotherhood won the election? This way, Egypt MIGHT stay secular.

/ both are bad options; one, however, is slightly better than the other
 
2012-06-15 01:36:37 PM
Some called the move political as the parliament was dominated by Islamists, a group long viewed with suspicion by the military.

Im ok with this

Also, if she is black, she should probably ditch the Israel leg of the trip.

Everytime I see Muslim Brotherhood I think they should be led by either Kane or Magneto, but I can't decide which.

"Moussa said the previously instituted constitutional panel was "unsatisfactory for many parties" because of the influence in it held by the Muslim Brotherhood."

Yeah, I kinda have to agree with them on that one. No one group having any sort of advantage over the rest is pretty damn vital to a democracy.

Not valid when Muslim. Little known clause to democracy.

Despite having the name "Muslim" in their name, there is nothing about the Muslim Bortherhood that should be scary to the west. They are far more moderate than the Salafist parties that have been springing up lately, they are committed to electoral democracy, and are pretty decent practical polticians.

They need a re-branding then. How about, The Harry Potter Quintet, or The Dave's Rib Shack Party (All Night), or The Pastrami Files?

Yes! because when in Israel there is one incident in Jerusalem where people firebomb a house of illegal work seeking aliens it means in Israel they firebomb black people on a regular basis!

Sorry but most of the west isn't for the death penalty for blasphemy against Islam, death penalty for gays, forced ehad coverings, etc.

She's white, Catholic (more likely to wear a cross than anything with Hebrew lettering), and tends to dress like a school teacher, since that's what she is. :)

Just one?

Oh also, are you ok with assaulting people looking for work? Is that like civic duty over there?

"Most of those people arriving here are Muslims who think the country doesn't belong to us, the white man." - Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai

As we can see, this is clearly just an immigration issue. Black people should be just fine over there. Just don't walk in to any shops with a "help wanted" sign.

Don't throw such a wide net there, sane adult don't thinks having muslim in a name somehow makes it dangerous. Not everyone in the west is a christian conservative nut-bag.

That is standard HotWing logic.

In a muslim country a party leader and presidential candidiate calls for theocracy, and says the following, "The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal. Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals." And he interprets that as democracy.

In Israel we get one group of nutballs firebombing a house and that means they will do it to every person.

Yes, just one. Of known illegal African immigrants.

HotWingConspiracy: Oh also, are you ok with assaulting people looking for work? Is that like civic duty over there?


No, I'm not OK about breaking the law in any case.

HotWingConspiracy: As we can see, this is clearly just an immigration issue. Black people should be just fine over there. Just don't walk in to any shops with a "help wanted" sign.


Thank you for proving your ignorance once again because: 1. Eli Yishai never said Most of those "people arriving here are Muslims who think the country doesn't belong to us, the white man", it was a very colorful interpetation of Human Rights Watch and 2. Eli Yishai is a mizrahi jew, himself not exactly "the white man".

If you vote in a theocracy (which the MB wasnts) the country is no longer democratic.
