Hot Air Delays Egyptian Result

Posted by SLRT on Sun Jun 24 10:09:00 2012

It was supposed to be 9 a.m. New York time, then delayed to 9:30. Then took time to get seated and play the Egyptian National Anthem. Now the guy who is supposed to give the result is droning on ... and on ... and on ... More than an hour since we were supposed to know.

It's Mohammed Moorsi, the Islamists won.

This will be derided as silly optimism (and it very well might be). But maybe a standoff where the military doesn't dare overturn Morsi, but Morsi doesn't dare impose fundamentalist rules on the people, could be the best for Egypt at the moment.

Considering that almost 40% of Egyptians are NOT followers of Islam, that would be wise.

But you are counting on Morsi to be wise, rather than principledideological. It is the military that will restrain Morsi, not wisdom.

I suppose bingbong is adding secularists and nominal Muslims rather than outright non-believers to her mix.

Likud is not a religious political group of any kind, so your comparison is baseless.

I don't think most people on this board are suggesting the Egyptian people shouldn't get to pick their own leadership. I do think people have varying concerns about what impacts that pick will have on aspects of Egyptian policy that might affect them personally.

Ah well ... the GOP is therefore. Thanks for taking it the wrong way. I suppose it's better to make it appear that the majority of people in Egypt are ready to go full Hamas then.

Fact is most folks over there aren't very religious, compared to some of the Shia countries. All they want is an economy and a better life than they had with their klepto in charge. Doesn't look like the outcome is what they wanted here either. The winner claims that he's not going to go nuts and impose it, and has already been made pretty toothless as a result of the military's actions. So for now, expect a lot of gassing off and not much else.

I'd be more concerned about north given that West bank is fed up with Abbas getting nowhere over the concessions of the last several years. Word I hear is that a third intifada isn't far away. I'd worry about that instead.

Um, Hamas is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. You somehow think that I should worry about a Third Intifada but not worry about what is going on Egypt? Before posting.. think twice!

They're one and the same. And the word "Hamas" is Hebrew for "violence" . . .

The military already defanged the powers of the Presidency right before the vote.

They turned the office into that of a figurehead like in Germany, Italy, Israel, etc.

The Military Council will retain all executive and legislative powers.
