BBC ^ | June 24, 2012 | BBC

Posted on 06/24/2012 7:39:16 AM PDT by John W

The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi has been declared the winner of Egypt's presidential election run-off.

He won 51.73% of the vote, beating former PM Ahmed Shafiq, the Higher Presidential Election Commission said.

The head of the panel of judges, Farouq Sultan, said it had upheld some of the 466 complaints by the candidates, but that the election result still stood.

My apology everyone. Now remembering how this went down. My post #49 is not accurate. Remembering the military stepped in and said the winner would be announced at a later time. This is now a later time. Sad day for the world (imho). Marking this date.

Actually, I think it is much more dire than just a two-front war with Egypt. Israel is more than capable of fighting Egypt conventionallly, BTW. When you throw in Iranian-backed missiles, war-headed with any manner of nasty stuff, that’s when the equation changes.

The only firm and subtantive way to stop that sh!t outright are nukes of various flavors. If you google what and how many nukes Israel has, estimates are around at least 200.

Obama isn’t really going to play into the solution; he may play into the onset by being an ass and hanging Israel out on the clothesline unattended, but whatever happens after that when Israel feels threatened enough, Obama will be about as useful as tits on a castrated bull.

Most Obamabots don’t even understand, nor do they care about what’s happening in Egypt. They’re still wondering why Eric Holder is in trouble over a movie (Fast & Furious).

John did go back to the earlier thread (your reference) and took a look. Can stand by all I typed at that thread yet remember this was not reported in the lamestream media. At least I did not see it on TV media. Could have missed it, if it was reported.

Here is what I think happened. (Tin Foil Hat Time) ....
There was possibly a threat leveled at Egypt's military. That threat was say good-bye to the money ... after all have read some republicans are lining up to offer the MB congratulations on this victory. The report referenced (by John W) was a report by the Jerusalem Post. What better way to slam Israel than to make the Jerusalem Post look stupid. Would our media, our politicians, and too many to count other countries participate in wanting to slam the Jerusalem Post? One can only point to what took place, one supposes. Some people actually report and ask questions, others decide what is the truth (mostly). Then there is (without the Tin Foil) an entity the vast majority of the world does not believe in. No need to say anything else, me thinks.

Please see rawhide’s post at #15 of John W reference to thread (in this thread) at post #51. Tells a tale, and makes me look stupid (as it should). Thanks rawhide, your post was on target in the thread at http://www.freerepublic.comfocus/f-news-2898573/posts which was John W. reference in this thread.

They have their caliphs re-election to worry about too.

They are uneducated. They don’t know history. Obama, entitlements, and false promises. That is what they care about. It has been the same story since the civil war, forty acres and a mule.

The liberals will go down with their messiah. Obama has opened Pandoras box and all hell is going to break loose.

White House 'Congratulates' Morsi on Winning Egyptian Presidential Election

This is not good at all. Drums of war are beating louder each moment day passes by.

This changes a lot of things, not for better, but for much worst.

yep ... zer0 and his minions know that blood is on their hands. The media knows too. You know it. I know it. Everyone here knows it. More people learn the truth about zer0, his minions and the media everyday in our nation. If Americans could get the RINOs to become an extinct species, there is a lot of time left for our nation. Never underestimate Americans. You are an American, right? Well, even if you aren't an American, welcome aboard. Want to help bail water?

The Muslims had better get them some train loads of 50,000 SPF if they go to far and back Israel into a corner. She won’t allow it a second time, for sure, regardless of what Obama’s America does.

Can we stop sending Egypt $1.5 billion each year in foreign aid now?

Apparently you are one of the many Americans who doesn't realize that Obama's biggest priority is setting up radical Arab States that will attack and destroy Israel. Next will come the US.

Does he have to declare the US is under Sharia law or will you figure it out sooner than that?

I am not American, but I am conservative in heart and soul. And I can see devious behavior of Obama Administration.

This is not good friend; it allows fanatics to push the ante for war. I have disagreements with my Jewish brothers and sisters, for we all do, Israel will not sit idle if attack.

This Administration of yours have created on opening thunder storm, and majority watching TV shows and new fashion show.

Welcome aboard, we have been there for long time, this is not welcome but disaster of geo political proportions, unchecked will go to war....

This is WORSE than the feckless meddling Carter committed, to the power of ten. Only one country was botched under him. Obama has managed to score a grand-slam base run throughout the entire region. I don't think we even have "decades" to wait before experiencing fallout, perhaps only a matter of months before someone pulls something majorly stupid since our major elections are coming up and some may feel they must make their move to take advantage while they still have an ally in the Whitehouse.

Thanks for the information FRiend. I am an American.

May God Bless and Keep Israel FRiend. Great to make your acquaintance. If you have a ping list, please add me. Thanks MCSP2008.

FRiend would like to type one more thing. Israel has been attacked so often and America (and yes myself) has been on the sidelines. This does not mean I do not pray for peace for Israel, for I pray for peace for all of us and our allies. I hate the thought of war. I hate the thought of losing Israel and the people of Israel more than my being or words can convey. Stay Safe FRiend. May we become FRiends.
