Muslim Brotherhood candidate wins Egyptian presidential election

posted at 12:31 pm on June 24, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Well, this should make the Middle East a calmer, more rational place … right?

Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi has won Egypt’s presidential runoff, the country’s election commission said Sunday.

Morsi’s supporters, packed into Tahrir Square, were seen celebrating, dancing and waving flags after the result was announced.

Morsi won by a narrow margin over Ahmed Shafiq, the last prime minister under deposed leader Hosni Mubarak. The commission said Morsi took 51.7 percent of the vote versus 48.3 for Shafiq.

Earlier Sunday, Egyptian police were ordered to confront any attempt to break the law with decisive force ahead of the results being announced, as soaring tensions in the country raised fears of a new outbreak of political violence.

Hey, not to worry, though.  WWho says we can’t work with the Muslim Brotherhood?  Why, here’s one of their clerics on the campaign trail earlier, complimenting Israel about Jerusalem and telling the crowd he’d like to visit there soon … joined by a few million “martyrs” (via RabbiLive and Breitbart) [see update]:

It’s a catchy tune and you can dance to it, but somehow I don’t see it playing well on American Bandstand.  Note well how the cleric tells the crowd to forget about the world and “conferences,” and that Jerusalem (al-Quds) will be their capital.

I’m a little more sanguine about this, but not because I think Morsi is a closet moderate who will pull a Nixon-goes-to-China move and work with Israel.  The Egyptian military is not likely to take orders from Morsi that risks its funding or its status in the nation.  If the Muslim Brotherhood tries to march on Jerusalem in anything but the figurative, spiritual sense, the military won’t hesitate to depose Morsi and impose its own rule on Egypt — putting the country right back to the Mubarak status quo.  They have already defanged the Egyptian parliament in anticipation of this outcome.  They don’t want a war with Israel, and certainly not with the US, which is what an attack on Israel will bring.  I’d expect Morsi to either play along and be a good little puppet to mollify the Muslim Brotherhood, or suddenly disappear if he doesn’t.

Update: Breitbart and RabbiLive were apparently incorrect about the identity of the speaker. It’s not Morsi, but a MB cleric. I’ve edited the post accordingly, and my apologies for the error. Thanks to Legal Insurrection for the heads-up..

Carter screwed Israel over with Camp David, too. Israel was forced to give up an extremely important and strategic piece of land for very temporary “peace” that anyone with a brain knew wasn’t going to last very long.

As for quiet on the Sinai border over the years … the Syrian border has been quieter and Israel didn’t give jack back to Syria.

Some day the West (and Israel) will learn. Not today, though. The sweep of pan-islamism replacing pan-arabism and the return of Egypt as the head of the arab world is almost complete. I don’t think I need to tell people what comes next.

Oldnuke on June 24, 2012 at 12:44 PM

They don’t want a war with Israel, and certainly not with the US, which is what an attack on Israel will bring.

I’m not sure where this idea comes from. The US has NEVER defended Israel and never gone to war with arabs over Israel. Israel forged its own existence by force of arms when the rest of the world expected it to be beaten to a pulp within a week. The US has only stepped in to STOP Israel from totally destroying one or another arab enemy (not that Israel has the stomach to actually do what is necessary to stop the ongoing war that has flared every ten years since the State’s founding), never to defend Israel and certainly never threatening to go to war with the arabs.

Somehow this idea that the US defends Israel has seeped even into the minds of some “conservatives” but I have no idea where it came from. A little history refresher is in order, I think.

Hopefully, after Israel retakes the Sinai for a third time they won’t be stupid enough to give it back and won’t be bullied by anyone into giving it back. The same goes for the Suez Canal.

Probably not. But Israel has no excuse for not learning. I used to have this argument all the time when I was living there. I used to have a group of friends who were VERY leftist (Meretz types).

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The Gaza Strip has erupted in celebrations following news that the Muslim Brotherhood candidate has won the Egyptian presidency.

People are pouring into Gaza City’s streets in joy, gunmen are firing automatic weapons in the air, and mosque loudspeakers are ringing with prayers and praise to God. People are handing out candy on street corners.

Gaza is ruled by the Islamic group Hamas, a local offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood that draws inspiration from the Egyptian organization.(More…)

Today, Obama is FRICKIN +5 ON GALLUP BACK TO 51. That is an 8 point surge in 3 days on a 7 day moving average poll. In other wprds, COMPLETELY INSANE!

What possible reason could there be for Obama to go from 43 to 51% on Gallup in 3 days? There simply is none. Gallup is not a trusted source.

Iran welcomes win by Egypt’s Morsi
June 24, 2012
**************

Iran on Sunday welcomed the presidential election win in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammad Morsi, but made no mention of possibly resuming diplomatic ties cut more than three decades ago.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran congratulates the victory of the Egyptian people in this election and the presidency of Dr. Mohammad al-Morsi, and pays homage to the country’s martyrs,” said a foreign ministry statement carried by state media.

Iran “confidently wishes the ever-increasing progress and success of the Egyptian people thanks to their mass presence in the political and social arenas.”

The clerical leadership in Iran contends that the 2011 Arab Spring that toppled Egypt’s pro-US president Hosni Mubarak and other Arab leaders was inspired by its own 1979 Islamic revolution.

Iran cut diplomatic ties with Egypt in 1980, the year after Egypt’s peace agreement with Israel. The ousted Mubarak had harbored strong distrust of Tehran, which he regarded as a destabilizing force in the Middle East.

Although Iran’s predominant faith is Shia Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood adheres to the Sunni branch of Islam, Tehran has been reaching out to the organization in Egypt in recent months.

This article from February 2011…..

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, with 600,000 members, is not on official U.S. terrorism lists, as are Hamas and Hizbullah, but the American government has had no contact with it because of what Gibbs said were “questions over its commitment to the rule of law, democracy and nonviolence.”

It stands for the re-establishment of the Islamic Empire (Caliphate), the takeover, spiritually or otherwise, of the entire world, and jihad and martyrdom. It has front organizations in the UK, France, and the United States.

A former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr. Dore Gold, writes of a fear that the Muslim Brotherhood, widely seen as having become moderate over the years, will “exploit a figure like [Mohammed] ElBaradei in order to hijack the Egyptian revolution at a later stage.” Gold noted that ever since the Brotherhood was founded over 80 years ago, it has engaged in political terrorism, assassinating Prime Minister Mahmoud al-Nuqrashi Pasha in 1948, trying to kill President Abdul Nasser several years later, and more.

“A former Kuwaiti Minister of Education, Dr. Ahmad Al-Rab’i, argued in Al-Sharq al-Awsat on July 25, 2005 that the founders of most modern terrorist groups in the Middle East emerged from ‘the mantle’ of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Gold writes.

Even Leslie Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, says that the prospect of the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power “would be calamitous for U.S. security… The [Brotherhood] supports Hamas and other terrorist groups, makes friendly noises to Iranian dictators and torturers, would be uncertain landlords of the critical Suez Canal, and opposes the Egyptian-Israeli agreement of 1979, widely regarded as the foundation of peace in the Mideast.

bove all, the [Brotherhood] would endanger counter terrorism efforts in the region and worldwide… The real danger is that our experts, pundits and professors will talk the Arab and American worlds into believing we can all trust the [Brotherhood]…”

Wow I bet all the liberal jews supporting Obama are doing the happy dance now! My problem with the liberal jews is if they don’t care about Israel, why should we?
