Bee's Note: Yes, I've been posting reports from sources covering the Egyptian elections - sources that recognize over and over again, that Obama and his administration supported the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. This fact is as important as Morsi's "win", as it demonstrates how far America's "flexible" president has fallen since he took office. To say that Obama has once again disgraced America would be putting it mildly. Have we, as Americans, been made slaves to Islam? Have our liberties been buried under a heap of ash by a "president" so willing to bow to Islamic terrorists, under the pretense of tagging the Brotherhood as "moderate"? How is it that one man and his entire administration chose to praise America's enemies, while bashing our allies? We understood a year ago that the Arab Spring would turn into a horrific winter!
I can just imagine how the next White House press conference spins the Egyptian elections into something that sounds like lollipops and gumdrops - best thing since rice! You will hear the words "moderate" and "democracy" more than 10 times and the main stream media will suck it up as they have done with every other betrayal and lying hypocrisy spouted out of the mouths of the administration. We have been sold into slavery for a few trinkets and a gold medal placed around the neck of Obama, as he bowed before the Saudi King.
Not all Egyptians are rejoicing. "In another part of Cairo, supporters of Ahmed Shafiq demonstrated waited out the results by protesting against “foreign intervention” in Egypt’s democratic process. They accused the US of tilting the election against their candidate. Disgruntled pro-democracy secular activists stood quietly in Cairo’s emblematic square in mourning for the revolution they lost." Debka's report (below).
American patriots bow their heads in shame, wondering to ourselves how we fell so far from honor and virtue. We were once referred to as a "Beacon of Light"; that beacon has been dimmed, snuffed out, from sea to shinning sea, by those in Washington who have wined and dined a group of leaders of the MB - an organization 80 years old, associated with the Hitler regime, and kept from its Islamic agenda for the past 30 years by the former President of Egypt, Murbarak.
"Step down, Murbarak, step down", demanded Obama one year ago. Those words will ring throughout history as one of the darkest days in America's history, by a president who proclaimed in a Cairo speech that he (the USA) would not interfere in the politics/government of other nations and certainly not support "an Egyptian Government ruthless in suppressing the rights of others. (see the video posted by The Blaze).
Will the GOP candidate recognize, understand, and speak out about the lack-luster failure of this administration's foreign policies? ....... Let us pray.
FLASHBACK: OBAMA IN CAIRO IN ‘09: AMERICA WILL NOT SUPPORT AN EGYPTIAN GOV‘T ’RUTHLESS IN SUPPRESSING THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS’; WILL ONLY WELCOME NEW GOV‘T ’WITH RESPECT FOR ALL’
Muslim Brotherhood's Muhammed Morsi is president of Egypt
DEBKAfile Special Report June 24, 2012, 6:28 PM (GMT+02:00)
Although elected more or less democratically, Morsi and his party are expected to turn the Egyptian revolution into the cornerstone of an Islamic state more closely akin to the Islamic Republic of Iran than the democratic, secular state envisioned by the revolutionaries when they fought for Mubarak’s overthrow.
In time, Israeli will discover its three-decade old peace pact with Egypt is also destined to go by the board as the Islamist majority in parliament gives Egypt a new constitution broadly based on the Sharia.
The military council, though widely charged with usurping power, proved helpless against the Islamic tide which polarized rather than sweeping the country. The close election results showed Egypt to be deeply split into at least two large camps and this bodes ill for its future stability.
The generals will have no choice but to come to terms with the Muslim Brotherhood. But any deal they reach will be short-lived because the Islamists have the legislative power to enact laws for stripping the military elite of its privileges. Some of the generals may choose to retire rather than support the Brotherhood.
The first to read the writing on the wall was Mubarak’s former intelligence chief, Gen. Omar Suleiman, who dropped out of the presidential race at an early stage. The last DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s sources disclosed that Suleiman had boarded a flight to Munich, Germany last Wednesday, June 20. He was quick to foresee that the Muslim Brotherhood, backed by the Obama administration, was heading for rule over Egypt.
Having devoted much of his career to putting Muslim Brotherhood activists behind bars, Suleiman knew that he could expect nothing more under the new regime than the fate of his old boss, Hosni Mubarak, namely, a slow, cruel death in prison.
In another part of Cairo, supporters of Ahmed Shafiq demonstrated waited out the results by protesting against “foreign intervention” in Egypt’s democratic process. They accused the US of tilting the election against their candidate. Disgruntled pro-democracy secular activists stood quietly in Cairo’s emblematic square in mourning for the revolution they lost.
