Muslim Brotherhood Claims Egypt’s Presidency


Pages: 1 2

For one thing, Morsi will be severely constrained by the military council that has now appropriated most of the executive and legislative powers in the government. This is why most analysts believe that Morsi will be extremely cautious at first in challenging the military’s decisions regarding the dissolution of parliament and the constitutional assembly — a body that the generals will now appoint. In effect, Morsi has been caught in a bear trap: he will receive the blame for the lack of improvement in the economy, while the military avoids public responsibility. Joshua Stacher, a political scientist and Egypt expert at Kent State University, points out that the bureaucracy is made up largely of Mubarak holdovers who will seek to thwart Morsi in most of his reforms. “What this does is it has made SCAF [the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces] king-like,” says Stacher. “It allows them to have this expanse of executive and legislative power, while the blame will be shifted onto the people who emerge from the ballot box.“

Morsi, who is seen as a rather colorless and ineffective politician compared to the man he replaced on the ballot, al-Shater, engenders little confidence even among his friends that he can govern effectively given the circumstances. Mohammed Habib, a former deputy chairman of the Brotherhood, was asked by the New York Times whether Morsi has what it takes to meet the challenges of his office. Mr. Habib said, “No, he doesn’t.”

As a practical matter, Morsi’s task seems near impossible. The levers of power are firmly in the hands of the generals, there is no parliament to pass his program, an entrenched bureaucracy of potential enemies awaits him, and hostile courts which may yet declare his election null and void when they take up the issue of the legality of the Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, in September. There is a ban on religious-based political parties and given what the Supreme Court just did to parliament, it is not out of the question that Morsi may find his election declared illegal.

But that’s in the future. For the present, Morsi finds himself on the horns of a dilemma: if he appears too compliant with the military, he may lose the support of the Egyptian street, which seems inclined for the present to grant him a honeymoon period. But if he challenges the military too directly, he invites a backlash by the generals.

His first decisions may be instructive. Morsi says he will not be sworn in unless it is before the members of parliament who were recently dismissed. And he has asked his supporters to remain in Tahrir Square until the military reverses its power grab. Both statements can be seen as challenges to the military’s authority. But there is also behind the scenes negotiations going on with the generals that may see some sort of compromise emerge. “Nobody should doubt there is going to be deal-making,” said Shadi Hamid, director of the Brookings Doha Center. “The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces still has the tanks and guns and the Brotherhood still understands that. There has to be some temporary power-sharing agreement,” he said.

Deal or no deal, no one should expect the Muslim Brotherhood to change its goals. Nor should anyone expect the Brotherhood to alter its Islamist outlook on the world. The group will be anti-Western, anti-Israel, anti-Christian, and intolerant of women’s rights, as well as supportive of terrorist groups like Hamas. This, the Muslim Brotherhood cannot change, no matter how many speeches President Morsi delivers, how many soothing words he speaks that sound so inviting to some western ears.

It is what the group was. It is what the group is. And most decidedly, it is what it will be as it struggles with the military for control of Egypt.

    All muslims are criminals in their heart. Any god that calls for blood against an infidel is evil. Makes me believe that allah is the devil himself and will be destroyed in the end.

      Wee wee small little man. The Jews were told to in one situation.

      You can't show that Jesus taught His followers to do that.

      You lose every single time because you make all these wild accusation that are more in following with your muslim friendly positions.

      I"m so glad you are still so stupid you're easy to expose for your blind bigotry.

    • WildJew

      Who said Jesus is evil? Not me.

      As to your interpretation of the law of Moses, God's law is meant to serve as a warning so that we do not sin. Historically, Jews haven't applied the strict letter of the law like we see in Islam. Why?

      The God of Israel is "merciful and gracious, long-suffering, abundant in loving kindness and truth," etc. Remember David wrote: "The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether…..Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward…."

      English historian Paul Johnson wrote: "After (a son) was thirteen, the Deuteronomic Law of the Rebellious Son applied. In theory a defiant son could be taken before the elders, convicted and stoned to death; he could be scourged even on the first offence. The Talmud said no such case had ever occurred, but the shadow of the Law lay over the son." (A History of the Jews, page 295)

      Why do you say such terrible things about us? Why should Christians distance themselves from God's commandments? Jesus did not distance himself from God. The Christians I know do not distance themselves from God and his commandments. Do you distance yourself?

        Good luck trying to explain this. Jesusinator is a muslim friendly troll with no grasp on anything but his anger and bigotry. As near as I can tell, he's been that way even as a teenager.

        I've asked him several times, when he was arrested for being at a party that had booze and drugs and was caught with a cooler of booze as an 18 year old…. I wonder if something happened that night in jail that twisted him forever.

        You are a hate filled bigot.

        You are sitting at your work terminal spewing hatred and failing to make any point other than you're just unreasonable to any logic or history.

        You can't tie the old Jewish history to any of Christ's teachings. So this hate speech you use to insult modern Christians fails every single time.

        I am by no means her to defend God. I am sure He is quite capable of defending Himself. This is the first thing that came to mind about your point:

        "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.

        "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah chpt. 55)

      Both islam and christianity are two intolerant peas in an intolerant pod. They are as bad as each other. "Believe in me and no one else, others are inferior…" and so on. Both of these blots on humanity are cults, one a cult of jesus, the other a cult of mohammad. There will be no peace and harmony until these two cults are alive and well.

      • WildJew

        Only Christians aren't about killing me "today" because I am a Jew. Sadly (and this will offend many Christian readers) the Christian world ("Christian nations") including the United States is in some way on the side of the Muslim world's war against Israel and the Jews. Self-professed (born-again) Christian conservative, George W. Bush – I voted for him in 2000 – became the first American president to make the establishment of a Muslim-enemy state in the Holy Land a "formal goal of U.S. policy." Where were American Christians? I read Christian bloggers and spoke to them, John Hagee, Joseph Farah, Gary Bauer, etc. Conservative American Christians and Evangelicals strongly supported President Bush and his policies; sadly.

        • RoguePatriot6

          The lib/progs who profess to be Christians are the ones that want to throw Israel and the rest of the Jewish people under the bus. Obama is the one warring against your people. He's just figured out the politically correct and underhanded way of doing it. He simply funds and supports the Islamist revolutions in other countries in the name of "democracy" and tolerance knowing full well that it will lead to Islamic Totalitarianism and the extermination of any Christians or Jews in those countries. This is what he wanted all along.

          That same mentality is being applied here in the United States. Terrorism isn't the only form of Jihad.

          • WildJew

            I agree with much of what you've written. It is liberal / progressive Christian denominations that are the most anti-Israel. During the Bush years, I wrote and asked Pastor John Hagee (Christians United For Israel) to issue a formal resolution opposing the Bush road map for Israel's dismemberment. He refused. I wrote Gary Bauer leading officer, Christians United For Israel, and others. I called Joseph Farah (CEO – World Net Daily) when he was syndicated for a short time on a radio program in our area; he replaced Oliver North.

            All these people are powerful Christian Zionists. But no one was willing to go against or criticize Bush on his policies toward Israel or his immoral pressure on Israel or his repeated falsehoods about Islam. Mostly what I got was criticism of Israel's leaders for not standing up to immoral White House pressure. In the Christian bible (the gospels) there is Jesus relating all these people coming to him in the last days or in the world to come proclaiming all the wonderful things they did in his name and he will tell them, "I never knew you…."

            What do you think Jesus would say to these people (these committed Christians) who give Israel lip service?

      • RoguePatriot6

        Really?

        Yea, I can see your point as both Jews and Christians are being slaughtered as we speak from Islamists. Yet, you say that they are equally as evil. Before, the "Arab Spring" began, (interesting terminology), how many Muslims did Christians slaughter in those nations? How many scriptures out of the New Testament can you say, commands that Christians "…kill the unbeliever"? Or calls for us to lie and decieve others to achieve world conquest. Jesus changed people through reasoning and compassion, not the sword eventhough those that professed to follow Him did later. In doing so they violated His teachings and commands. In the case of Islamists they did exactly what they were told by Muhammad.

      • Drakken

        Christians have progressed into the 21 st century, Islam hasn't, but nice try at moral equiliancy when here isn't any.

  • WildJew

    Notwithstanding the fact the military controls the political levers in Egypt presently, Muslim Brotherhood has its (proverbial) foot in the door. If polls are credible, Muslim Brotherhood also has the majority of Egypt's public on its side; a public that wants more Islam rather than less Islam, a public that supports stoning women, killing apostates, amputating hands for theft, suicide bombings to one degree or another, etc. We will see what transpires in the months and the years to come. I do not see good things for Egypt or the region in light of events unfolding.

    Muslim's lie about everything, it's backed by Islam if it suits their purposes. Whose to say this election is just another lie. And don't forget what he said just recently, that if he wins, Jerusalem will be the capital of Egypt.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    A sickening situation in which America must sit back and watch the unfolding of what amounts to
    the end of peace on a scale not seen since Nasser's rule. The Caliphate is now closer to being
    a reality and this will further the decent into the vile past of Islamist rule and the slavery of sharia law.

    It is a day of infamy for any woman caught in this Islamist trap in which they are mere property and
    tools of their masters. Israel must watch closely and in no way allow any military presence in
    the Siani that is a threat. Watch Hamas go crazy, not a big jump but crazy enough to continue the
    attacks on Israel. Every day the Middle East grows more dangerous and closer to all out war.
    A change in Washington is more important than ever in the upcoming elections………..William

  • Coptic John

    My country has been lost forever and I'm standing here helpless … How many times we the copts tried to save it from it's doomed fate but the spirit of hatred and religious obsession from the majority finally prevailed … wish I were dead and wouldn't see that evil coming …

    • WildJew

      Maybe it's a good time for Copts living in Egypt to develop an escape plan?

    • KarshiKhanabad

      Copts are the original Egyptians and Arab Muslims in Egypt are descendants of invaders. But Arabs outnumber Copts seven to one. Time for Copts to come to America as Egypt and the Middle East are lost to Islam. Only the heavily armed Israelis stand a chance of survival there, now.

      Maybe President Romney will quietly order Operation Magic Carpet II to bring not only Copts but Melkites, Chaldeans, & Assyrians to the U.S. where Christianity at least remains the majority religion in the land. An infusion of Christian refugees who describe firsthand what happens when Muslims take over a society will raise consciousness among us Christians who have been blessed for so long & who seem to have forgotten that fact. Since 1948 there has been a Jewish homeland. Let America be Christianity's homeland!

        No, they wouldn't.

        They would explain that their creator gave them the rights they were born with, not any government.

        Then they'd wonder what God deists worship if not the one that created everything.

    THE WORLD has been dealing with JIMMY CARTER'S IRANIAN MULLAHS for decades. (Imagine if Barack Obama had supported Iran's GREEN REVOLUTION as vigorously as he did the ARAB SPRING and today there would be "democracy" in Iran instead of a country who's on the brink of acquiring nuclear weapons and sends its Armies, funds, and weapons to their proxies in Syria, Hamas, and Hezbollah with the goal of "wiping Israel off the map.")

    THE WORLD will be dealing with BARACK OBAMA'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD FOR CENTURIES since they will never give up power as they DISMANTLE THE VERY DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS that they used in their "democracy." Now they will be free to jail and even kill opponents AND CHRISTIANS, and to use their own Sharia Law to enslave women even as those very women voted for them.

    LOOK FOR A UNITED FRONT with Iran, and others including our so-called Arab Friends and the silence from Obama even as he fully supports them, AGAINST ISRAEL WHILE DOING NOTHING IN AREAS LIKE SYRIA only because he doesn't want to hurt PUTIN'S AND CHINA'S FEELINGS!

  • VoiceoFTruth

    There is little, if any, doubt in my mind that, the moment the chance arrives, the Brotherhood will do whatever it takes to break the current's Egyptian military's grip on the Brotherhood's future decisions. Given the fact that the Islamic doctrine of Taqiyya (i.e., using lies and deceptive tactics to lull one's enemy populations into a false sense of security and using the same to muster-up support from one's enemies) is a primary tactic of the Brotherhood and given the fact that it works like a charm for the Brotherhood, it should come as no surprise when things start to turn downright nasty for Israel and the rest of the not-yet Islamic world.

  • watsa46

    We may see a reversal of alliances. The ultimate goal of the Muslims and Putin are identical: the destruction of the Western world. We the help provided so far by our dear Pr. O this will become very tempting. Pr. Morsi had to say what he said to deceive the West and to prevent a new bloody revolution. But He will work with the MB to get rid of the "infidels" of Egypt while blackmailing the West to keep the US $ and undermining the Israelis. For the sake of ???? Pr. O has to go.

    • Drakken

      Don't put ole Putin in the same category as an islamist. Putin knows how to deal with the muslims he just doesn't advertise it.

    The more the muslims hate Americans, the more the Americans love muslims. Obama is an opology to muslims by Americans and they will vote for him again. Americans love islam, in fact if there was MB in US, their candidate would win in the upcoming elections hands down. But alas, there isn't MB of USA just yet so you have to make do with the Democrats. Hillary Clinton is the mother muslims.

  • RoguePatriot6

    "The Copts and other religious minorities must be wondering what will happen next."

    More of the same will happen, they and the Jewish communities, if any are left, will be exterminated or forced into exile. The "peaceful, sensitive and compassionate" liberals in this country, of course, will not even so much as raise an eyebrow over it. If it were the other way around, we would probably consider direct military action.

  • Iron Yank

    The sooner that the Brotherhood forces the military to attack Israel the sooner Israel makes Cairo part of the desert again. These throwbacks want to see Allah & the virgins….well why dont they give it to them. This could turn out to be a good thing for the world if the brotherhood gets there way and attacks Israel.

  • RoguePatriot6

    “The United States will continue to support Egypt’s transition to democracy and stand by the Egyptian people as they fulfill the promise of their revolution.”

    Yea, LOL, whatever. Really? Revolution into what? To an even more tyrannical totalitarian dictatorship? As foolish as this administration has been in so many other aspects of leading this country, it's still hard for me to believe that they are as blind as to believe that a democracy will result from something sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood.

    They aren't blind or stupid. This is exactly what Obama and this administration wanted from day one. Don't listen to the words or the poltical BS. Look at the actions and results. They have supported every Islamist supported group that would impose shariah law over the will of it's citizens and have overlooked the disaterous results from it, as Christians and Jews are exterminated in these "revolutions of democracy".
