It's official, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was elected president of Egypt (51.7%). Out is Mubarak the secular military dictator and in is Morsi the "freely" elected Islamist president. Over the next few days, Morsi will move in into Mubarak's palace and start organizing his new government to rule the largest arab country in the middle east. As it stands, the military still retains control and greatly limits what decisions Morsi can make. This is the result of the decision by Egypt's SCAF (Supreme Council of the Armed Forces) to strip the presidents of many of most of his power. We don't know how long this will last.
President Obama didn't waste any time to congratulate Morsi and the White House declared that: Morsi's victory is a milestone in Egypt's transition to democracy after decades of authoritarian rule under Mubarak. Even Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement after Morsi election to power to congratulate Egypt for a move towards democracy saying that he respected the results.
Morsi might have been freely elected, although the term freedom remains to be determined as it pertains to Egypt's recent elections. Especially when looking at the case of the Egyptian man who beat his wife to death for not voting for Morsi.
So, Egyptian Christians, Israelis and the rest of the free world shouldn't worry because all news reports seem to agree that Morsi was "freely" elected and is introducing a new era, a "New Egypt"...Democracy is finally here and we should feel very safe as we all look forward to a new stability in the middle east. Democracy can be defined as
It is time to take a closer look at the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and decide if they are the promoters of democracy or the enforcers of fascism. I have made my mind long ago and I will let YOU decide for yourself, but please consider a few facts.
Consider the MB motto as found on their website and other materials:
“Democracy contradicts and wages war on Islam. Whoever
calls for democracy means they are raising banners contradicting God’s plan
and fighting Islam.”
