For what it is worth, I think that was probably the actual election results.

FTFA: Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi beats off military man Ahmed Shafiq to become Egypt's Boobies-uprising president

So that's what it takes to be president of Egypt?
 
2012-06-24 11:35:42 AM
Sh*t, when it's between him and Mubarak's former prime minister, I'd vote for him too.
 
2012-06-24 11:35:53 AM
Headline -- Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi beats off military man Ahmed Shafiq to become Egypt's Boobies-uprising president

That's a fatwa Mohamed.

In serious political news -- shiat is gonna get real now.

You really have to wonder about Muslims. They overthrow oppressive regimes - and vote in Islamists.

Now, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has made promises that it won't institute Sharia law, won't force women to cover their hair, etc. Did the Egyptian voters actually buy those promises?

The best way to quell Islamism is to make them democratically accountable someplace. Death to whomever becomes a hell of a lot less important when people can't get their trash picked up.

I welcome this move and it is probably the best way to help calm ideological extremism.

The Freedom and Justice party (Mursi's party) supports:

- Free market capitalism without "manipulation or monopoly"
- Basis on Islamic law
- Access to wide segment of the population

The Republican Party supports:

- Free market capitalism without government manipulation, but private manipulation is fine
- Basis on Christian law
- Access to narrower segment of the population

The Muslim Brotherhood is an umbrella group. Tough to know what this election will mean for Egypt.
 
2012-06-24 11:38:51 AM
This will end poorly for the entire region.
First order of business: attack Israel and get our asses handed right back to us. Again.

No, they're almost certainly counting on those promises to be false.

I don't have time to track down the reference myself, but when the uprising started I vividly recall the Muslim Brotherhood claiming that they have no intention of ever seeking power in Egypt. It would be awesome, and very educational, if someone could find that reference for us.

I believe the reference you're looking for was a street rep being asked by a BBC reporter if they intended on 'seizing' power and/or instituting Taliban-style Sharia law, which the street rep denied.

The MB is the equivalent to a Christian political party in the U.S. Imagine if the Moral Majority had gone into politics on its own without wedding itself to the GOP.

This should be interesting. How long will it be before Egyptian women find themselves with no rights at all?

Not only that, but during the so-called "Arab Spring" various Farkers assured us that those concerned about the Muslim Brotherhood coming to power were merely pants- wetting, Fox- watching right- wing idiots, and that all Egyptians really wanted to do was harness the awesome power of social media to choose more freedoms for themselves.

The Left: getting sh*t wrong since 1917.

And to the idiot above the Republicans doesnt want government based in Christian religion, especially the parts about taking away women's rights and killing gays.

But nice troll.

I like this. You claim that Republicans aren't real Christians but the Muslim Brotherhood are representative of all Muslims.

One wonders what might have happened if there were a higher voter turnout. About 46% of eligible voters cast ballots in February, and 51% voted in the run-off.

For people who don't understand that democracy sometimes means choosing the least bad alternative - hope you enjoy living under the Islamists.

Yeah, quell Islamisim Lupine, the new president said, I quote: "OUR CAPITAL 'SHALL BE JERUSALEM, ALLAH WILLING'..., hey Israel, look what the democrats and graduate students in America helped bring to you, war and death! Democracy is great for women in Egypt too, they will get to wear a sheet and be in fear of men should they want to wear makeup! Cool, thanks Obama, i'm sure the minority of Coptic Christians will enjoy democracy too, oh wait, no, they aren't believers of islame, so, they will be killed, ahh, shucks, but i'm sure the mooslims are excited, they get to kill all them nasty Jewish folk and Christians too, yee haw!
 
2012-06-24 11:51:05 AM
And we think we have bad choices at election time. Choose between continuing the military dynasty or a religious one. The only way to win in Egypt is not to vote....like the women.

MB is not equivalent you farking morons, they are for instituting Islamic based laws inside the government, basing your decisions on your religion is a big difference than saying your government follows a religions beliefs.

But keep making that moronic comparison, being a Fark political thread I expect no less.

I don't know about killing gays, but the first two things you mention have pretty much become the GOP's official platform.

No you need to read, we have seperation of church and state which is a good thing, they will be instituting Islamic beliefs in their laws. If you can't see that as a huge difference then you people are insane.

I guess it shouldn't surprise me that morons over here want to try and lump people you hate in with these guys to make conservatives look just as insane.

You sound angry, son.

When they actually 'do' something worth getting upset about, then you can wet your panties and run around in a panic, screaming about how terrible it is that some other country that you don't live in has elected a party based on a religion other than Christianity.

Honestly, do you really think that the military over there will let them do 'anything' that'll hurt the tourism business?

But, by all means, continue to foam at the mouth and get your panties in a twist, it's horribly amusing for me, it being Sunday.

The liquor stores aren't opened yet, I mean. Silly Blue laws.
