Egypt’s election: Islamists of every stripe to the fore
so far, it looks like the Muslim Brotherhood is getting about 40% of the vote, and the Salafi's another 20%...i.e. we pretty much have a re-run of Iran, where the socialists and 'moderate liberals' lead the revolution, only to be then taken over by the Islamists, who will most probably then re-do what the Mullah's did in Iran: proceed to kill off those very same socialists and moderates...only in Egypt, unlike Iran you also have 10%-12% of the population being Christian, who are also likely to get whacked off
that will pretty much end any prospects for peace in the middle east any time soon..especially with many of the muslim groups in Egypt advocating the abrogation of the peace treaty with Israel.
Preliminary results of Egypt’s strung-out parliamentary elections suggest that Islamists will be easily the largest and most potent political force
IF THE results of the first batch of Egypt’s elections are replicated across the country, the Islamists will emerge as a lot more powerful than most analysts predicted. In a string of villages and cities, including Cairo, Alexandria and Port Said, the Muslim Brothers seem to have scored between 30% and 40%, which would earn them at least 40% of seats in the People’s Assembly, the legislature’s lower house. Even more strikingly, the Salafists, who espouse a more extreme and puritanical Islamist ideology, have far exceeded expectations, in some places getting a good 20% of the vote. So the combined tally looks set to give assorted Islamists a straight majority of seats in the assembly. A new political dynamic is in the offing.
