We really need some right wing israelis in here to tell us how the military should take over to preserve democracy, which was just stolen via a democratic election. It really never gets old.

polyphemus75: hey Israel, look what the democrats and graduate students in America helped bring to you, war and death!

Perhaps my paper on Furryism and Midsummer Nights Dream for my MFA in Theatre was in poor taste but I dont think it's a regime changer.

hbomb1129: "After his victory was announced, Morsi resigned from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Freedom and Justice Party, in an apparent effort to send the message that he will represent all Egyptians."


Oh hey look! Important information.

ObeliskToucher: AlanSmithee: My coworker in my adjacent cubicle is Muslim, from Egypt. As a matter of fact, she voted there and will return back to Canada later this month. And she strongly believes Morsi won't institute Sharia law.

And yet... she's returning to Canada.


Well, she's got citizenship, is smart as a whip, has a well-paying job,and you can be sure she sends money back home. Oh, and she loves Canada. And Egypt too. Turns out she'd like Egypt to be a bit more like Canada. By living here and telling her relatives back in Egypt how great democracy is, I think she's doing good.

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.

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.

Nah, the thing I really loved is showing the hypocrisy of the right.

For nearly a decade, we heard the GOP go on and on about how we should spread democracy in the Middle East (while we were blowing up Iraq).

Fast forward nearly 10 years later and those same people are outraged that democracy is spreading to Egypt because the Egyptians are not voting for the people we wanted them to vote for.

Honestly, whatever happens there is none of our farking business.

And the best part is when US Republicans get upset when people in Muslim countries vote for conservative religious parties.

So, if I understand this correctly, it means Sarah Palin automatically becomes the Queen of Sheba and Obama has to build her a pyramid.

Nogale: 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?

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

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 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.
