Obama’s Greatest Achievement In 2012 Was Creating An Islamist Egypt

| December 23, 2012

 

US President Barack Hussein Obama’s greatest achievement in 2012 was creating an Islamist Egypt ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood. Make no mistake about it, without Obama giving the Muslim Brotherhood financial support and the backing of the United States, the phony Arab Spring never would have taken hold. Of course, all this was done to turn the Middle East’s largest Muslim country into a Sharia-ruled regime that just happens to sit on the southern border of Israel.

What a coincidence.

From Yahoo News: CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Islamist-backed constitution headed toward likely approval in a final round of voting on Saturday, but the deep divisions it has opened up threaten to fuel continued turmoil.

obama-islam-will-dominate-the-worldPassage is a victory for Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, but a costly one. The bruising battle over the past month stripped away hope that the long-awaited constitution would bring a national consensus on the path Egypt will take after shedding its autocratic ruler Hosni Mubarak nearly two years ago.

Instead, Morsi disillusioned many non-Islamists who had once backed him and has become more reliant on his core support in theMuslim Brotherhood and other Islamists. Hard-liners in his camp are determined to implement provisions for stricter rule by Islamic law in the charter, which is likely to futher fuel divisions.

His liberal and secular opposition, in turn, faces the task of trying to organize the significant portion of the population angered by what they see as attempts by Morsi and the Brotherhood to gain a lock on political power. The main opposition group, the National Salvation Front, said it would now start rallying for elections for the next lawmaking, lower house of parliament, expected early next year.

“We feel more empowered because of the referendum. We proved that at least we are half of society (that) doesn’t approve of all this. We will build on it,” the Front’s spokesman, Khaled Daoud, said. Still, he said, there was “no appetite” at the moment for further street protests.

Saturday’s voting in 17 of Egypt’s 27 provinces was the second and final round of the referendum. Though the constitution is widely expected to pass, the key questions will be over turnout and the margin of victory. Preliminary results from the first round a week ago showed only 32 percent turnout and a relatively low edge of 56 percent for the “yes” vote. Preliminary results from the second round are expected to emerge by early Sunday.

The new constitution would come into effect once official results are announced, expected in several days

In a sign of disarray in Morsi’s administration, his vice president and — possibly — the central bank governor resigned during Saturday’s voting. Vice President Mahmoud Mekki’s resignation had been expected since his post is eliminated under the new constitution. But its hasty submission even before the charter has been sealed and his own resignation statement suggested it was linked to Morsi’s policies.

“I have realized a while ago that the nature of politics don’t suit my professional background as a judge,” his resignation letter, read on state TV, said. Mekki said he had first submitted his resignation last month but events forced him to stay on.

The status of Central Bank Governor Farouq el-Oqdah was murkier. State TV first reported his resignation, then soon after reported the Cabinet denied he has stepped down in a possible sing of confusion. El-Oqdah, in his post since 2003, has reportedly been seeking to step down but in recent weeks the administration was trying to convince him to stay on. The government is eager to show some stability in the economy as the Egyptian pound has been sliding and a much-needed $4.8 billion loan from the IMF has been postponed.

“I don’t trust the Brotherhood anymore and I don’t trust the opposition either. We are forgotten, the most miserable and the first to suffer,” said Azouz Ayesh, sitting with his neighbors as their cattle grazed in a nearby field in the Fayoum countryside.

Over the past month, seven of Morsi’s 17 top advisers and the one Christian among his top four aides resigned. Like Mekki, they said they had never been consulted in advance on any of the president’s moves, including his Nov. 22 decrees, since rescinded, that granted himself near absolute powers.

Those decrees sparked large street protests by hundreds of thousands around the country, bringing counter-rallies by Islamists. The turmoil was further fueled with a Constituent Assembly almost entirely made up of Islamists finalized the constitution draft in the dead of night amid a boycott by liberals and Christians. Rallies turned violent. Brotherhood offices were attacked, and Islamists attacked an opposition sit-in outside the presidential palace in Cairo leading to clashes that left 10 dead.

The turmoil opened up a vein of bitterness that the polarizing constitution will do little to close. Morsi opponents accused him of seeking to create a new Mubarak-style autocracy. The Brotherhood accused his rivals of being former Mubarak officials trying to topple an elected president and return to power. Islamists branded opponents “infidels” and vowed they will never accept anything but “God’s law” in Egypt.

Both rounds of voting saw claims by the opposition and rights groups of voting violations. On Saturday they said violations ranged from polling stations opening late to Islamists seeking to influence voters to say “yes.” The official MENA news agency said at least two judges have been removed for coercing voters to cast “yes” ballots.

The opposition’s talk of now taking the contest to the parliament elections represented a shift in the conflict — an implicit gamble that the opposition can try to compete under rules that the Islamists have set. The Brotherhood’s electoral machine has been one of its strongest tools since Mubarak’s fall, while liberal and secular parties have been divided and failed to create a grassroots network.

In the first post-Mubarak parliament elections last winter, the Brotherhood and ultraconservative Salafis won more than 70 percent of seats in the lower chamber, which was later dissolved by a court order. The opposition is now betting it can do better with the anger over Morsi’s performance so far.

The schism in a country that has for decades seen its institutions function behind a facade of stability was on display in Saturday’s lines of voters. In the village of Ikhsas in the Giza countryside south of Cairo, an elderly man who voted “no” screamed in the polling station that the charter is “a Brotherhood constitution.”

“We want a constitution in the interest of Egypt. We want a constitution that serves everyone, not just the Brotherhood. They can’t keep fooling the people,” Ali Hassan, a 68-year-old wearing traditional robes, said.

But others were drawn by the hope that a constitution would finally bring some stability after nearly two years of tumultuous transitional politics. There appeared to be a broad economic split, with many of the middle and upper classes rejecting the charter and the poor voting “yes” — though the division was not always clear-cut.

In Ikhsas, Hassan Kamel, a 49-year-old day worker, said “We the poor will pay the price” of a no vote. He dismissed the opposition leadership as elite and out of touch. “Show me an office for any of those parties that say no here in Ikhsas or south of Cairo. They are not connecting with people.”

In the industrial working class district of Shubra El-Kheima just north of Cairo, women argued while waiting in line over the draft charter. Samira Saad, a 55 year old housewife, said she wanted her five boys to find jobs. “We want to get on with things and we want things to be better,” she said.

Nahed Nessim, a Christian, questioned the integrity of the process. “There is a lot of corruption. My vote won’t count.” She was taken to task by Muslim women wearing the niqab, which blankets the entire body and leaves only the eyes visible and is worn by ultraconservative women.

“We have a president who fears God and memorizes His words. Why are we not giving him a chance until he stands on his feet?” said one of the women, Faiza Mehana, 48.

The promise of stability even drew one Christian woman in Fayoum, southwest of Cairo, to vote “yes” — a break with most Christians nationwide who oppose the draft. Hanaa Zaki said she wanted an end to Egypt’s deepening economic woes.

“I have a son who didn’t get paid for the past six months. We have been in this crisis for so long and we are fed up,” said Zaki, waiting in line along with bearded Muslim men and Muslim women wearing headscarves in Fayoum, a province that is home to both a large Christian community and a strong Islamist movement.

The scene In Giza’s upscale Mohandiseen neighborhood was starkly different.

A group of 12 women speaking to each other in a mix of French, Arabic and English said they were all voting “no.”

“It’s not about Christian versus Muslim, it is Muslim Brotherhood versus everyone else,” said one of them, Shahira Sadeq, a Christian physician.

Kamla el-Tantawi, 65, said she was voted “against what I’m seeing” — and she gestured at a woman nearby wearing the niqab.

“I lose sleep thinking about my grandchildren and their future. They never saw the beautiful Egypt we did,” she said, harkening back to a time decades ago when few women even wore headscarves covering their hair, much less the black niqab. Many voters were under no illusions the turmoil would end. source – Yahoo News

    Many people fail to realize what is actually happening all over in that area, not just Egypt. There is an 1800 year old war going on between the Shiite and Sunni’s. This war was started at a dinner about 1800 years ago. Muhammad was at the dinner and he was poisoned. He took a bite of the food and realized it was poison and spit it out but it was to late. Thus the resulting 1800 year old war between the Shiites and Sunni’s. Both believe anyone who isn’t Muslim should die. But for now they are still fighting with one another as well. When that stops and it will shortly. The world better look out. The fight between Shiites and Sunni’s is happening in Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and the list goes on. All of those countries basically. It is believe that the whole area consists of about 80% Sunni’s and 20% Shiites. All the while the entire rest of the worlds leaders continue to try to force Israel to give up land for peace with them. What people do not understand is there will be no peace with them EVER. They will not stop until everyone who is not Muslim will die. They believe this from birth they are taught this. They believe that killing anyone who isn’t Muslim gets them into heaven. See the situation is this. During WW2 Hitler and the Germans eventually realized they could not win the war and they either killed themselves or surrendered. The difference is the Muslims believe that by killing you they get into heaven. They will not surrender as Germans eventually did. Everyone who isn’t Muslim must die, but they prioritize that in this order Jews, Christians, then everyone else. If Israel gives up land for peace it will be a short and false peace. As stated in the bible. The Lord actually warned not only Israel but the rest of the world about such a peace treaty and his judgement would come down on those who are involved. Which specifically states the whole world will be against Israel. That is where we are now. Everyone including the U.S. is trying to get and or force Israel to give up land for peace. What most people fail to see is that there is a unique situation arising over their that Obama can take advantage of. That is Iran’s nuclear program. If Obama takes out Iran’s nuclear program, he will then be able to turn to Israel and say you owe me one. Israel would never knowingly give up land for peace (cause they know the truth). However they may be forced to do it by signing some sort of treaty they didn’t know had that as a stipulation in it. Kinda the same way Obama has been passing all these laws against its own citizens here in the United States. Now your starting to see the big picture. I TOLD YOU SO!

    Thank you for the date correction, your a genius. 1400 year old war. I think you got the point though, unless your just one of those liberal trolls who looks for typo’s ;)

    Islam is a satanic religion and a most unhuman one! Alas, it’s been used by world powerbrokers to their nefarious ends of which EC is one of the most conspicuous victims currently….There is nothing beautiful and inspiring in islam and its rites. Look at muslims, they don’t have the appearance of normal human beings, and they are starting to become aware that islam is making them outsiders in a spiritual and rapidly ascending humanty. They are just left behind , no matter how brainwashed they are in iorder to be kept in the dark of the fact. Every human being , deep inside has an innate feeling about the truth of its divine essence. And namely that’s what islam is trying to hide from its followerse and not let them awake to the truth for then the whole sham will collapse…

    Thus says The Lord: Did you think My wrath would tarry forever?! Did you think My judgment sleeps?! Are My eyes closed to all these atrocities committed upon the earth, day and night, without ceasing?! Are My ears also stopped from hearing?!… Lo, I have seen and I have heard!

    My face draws near to this earth!…

    My eyes are filled with fire and fury!…

    My forehead wrinkles, and is set hard against you,
    O inhabitants of the earth!…

    For it is time!

    It is time to shake the cities of men by measure, and to bring up wrath from beneath! City by city shall be punished… One here and another there. Behold, it shall come upon them suddenly, and men shall fear, and with great perplexity shall their hearts fail!… A great trembling shall now come upon all people!…

    THE TERROR OF THE LORD IS AT HAND!…

    It shall come in swiftly, and you shall not know from where it shall come!
    It shall come upon city after city, without warning!

    For I have caused the earth to become angry. Lo, the depths of the earth tremble at My nearness, and soon this planet shall rage!… It shall rage against you, O deceitful generation! It shall devour and consume this generation!… Scouring from the earth all man has made!
    The Scriptures do not lie! And My prophets speak, yet the people refuse to hear!… They will not listen. Even My own people will not believe, yet their belief is not at all required… For My will is set, and can in no wise be turned back! The truth of My Word stands! It speaks throughout the generations and echoes throughout eternity!…

    For I AM THE LORD!… YaHuWaH!…I am EL Shaddai!…And I shall surely perform all I have spoken.

    I shall not cease, nor relent, nor shall I be turned back from My purpose!… The kingdoms of men must die! And the evil of men must be destroyed!… All must be wiped away!

    Peoples of the earth, you have hated life!

    You have polluted MY garden!

    DISEASED AND AWFUL GENERATION,
    YOU HAVE DESTROYED THE GARDEN!…

    And so I am come to cleanse! And to wipe away!…

    I am come down!…

    MY FACE IS VERY NEAR!

    Do you feel the heat of My wrath, O ignorant and vain peoples?!… You retain no knowledge at all! Only greed and wickedness, wickedness upon wickedness, passes before your eyes without ceasing… And oh how you love to have it so!
    DEAD GENERATION! Your hearts are stone!… Day after day you build up wrath, the vessels overflow! Day by day, the bodies are stacked up in heaps! Day by day, the unborn are slaughtered!… Whole generations of people murdered without cause! Multitudes of innocent cast off as refuse!… Yet you think Me too harsh, and My punishments too severe, My judgments unfair?!

    I AM THE LORD, AND THIS IS MY EARTH!
    THESE ARE MY CHILDREN!…

    All you see, from the ground beneath your feet
    To the farthest reaches of the universe, is MINE!…

    And I shall do as I please!

    I shall do according to the counsel of My own will…

    For I am God!

    Therefore, O peoples of the earth, because you have slaughtered the innocent and murdered your neighbor… Lo, you have even made for yourselves laws, that all may do their pleasure in unrighteousness and perform evil at their leisure… So then shall I also declare MY Law, and it shall fall hard upon the backs of all nations!
    Yea, I have put forth the decree, and hasten to carry out your sentences, O peoples of the earth! And what is the sentence, you ask?… Look upon the slaughtered innocent, look upon their torn and broken bodies… Behold how they are torn in pieces! See how their blood pours down and their limbs are strewn about!… LOOK!!! Look how they are scraped out of their mother’s womb!… Look upon the works of your hands, you evil and most wicked generation!… LOOK UPON YOUR WICKEDNESS!!! LOOK UPON ALL YOU HAVE DONE!

    THE TIME HAS COME!

    Hear the WORD of the LORD spoken to THIS modern generation!
