The Muslim Brotherhood seeks to implement ‘sharia law’ (Muslim rule) in Egypt. Hence, those who commit adultery would be stoned to death. Those caught stealing get their hands chopped off and women lose all their political and property rights.
Nevertheless, President Barack Obama calls the Muslim Brotherhood’s election sweep in Egypt a “milestone of democracy.” The White House even praises itself for allegedly sparking the “first phase of a democratic transition and opening a new struggle with the still-dominant military rulers.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Islamist Mohammed Morsi was declared the winner Sunday in Egypt’s first free presidential election in history, closing the tumultuous first phase of a democratic transition and opening a new struggle with the still-dominant military rulers who recently stripped the presidency of most of its powers.”
Morsi intends to launch a Syrian-style revolt against the military powers of Egypt and has already deployed thousands upon thousands of young jihadists to take control of the streets of Tahrir Square in Cairo, where the Arap Spring first erupted in Egypt that swept Hosni Mubarak from power a year ago.
According to the Houston Chronicle, “the White House congratulated Morsi and urged him to advance national unity as he forms a new government. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Morsi’s victory is a milestone in Egypt’s transition ton after decades of authoritarian rule under Mubarak. The Obama administration had expressed no public preference in the presidential race.”
Apparently, Mosni read a speech verbatim, which sounded remarkably similar to statements issued by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It seems as if the Muslim Brotherhood has found a speechwriter from the White House. Leading some to ask, who really rules over the Egyptian people: Obama or the Egyptian government?
