Egyptian beats pregnant wife to death for not voting for Mursi Al Arabiya

An Egyptian plumber in Alexandria beat his pregnant wife to death upon learning that she had not voted for Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohammed Mursi, reported the Egyptian daily al-Wafd on Sunday.

According to police reports, the initial argument between the couple who was not named escalated into violence, despite her pleas. Battered and bruised, she was reported to have died at the hospital from injuries sustained.

Well, the military sorta stripped the presidency of its powers the week before, which, considering his affiliations may be a good thing.

Then again, perhaps he's as moderate as a "Muslim Brohood" member could be; he taught for a few years as an assistant professor at California State University Northridge, and received his phd from USC, annnnd he has two kids that were born in America.

Now that doesn't mean he isn't still a nut job, but atleast we know he realizes what it means to live as a civilized humanbeing.

We'll see.

The Gaza Strip erupted in into celebration on Sunday after news that the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate won the presidency in neighboring Egypt, with one person killed by celebratory gunfire.
Tens of thousands of joyous Palestinians took to the streets across the territory after Egypt announced that Mohammed Morsy won last weekend's runoff election, the first time an Islamist won that nation's highest office.

Gunmen fired automatic weapons into the air, while mosque loudspeakers rang with prayer. Some revelers handed out candy on street corners. Others waved Egyptian flags and blasted the country's national anthem from car speakers.

A Gaza health official said that one person was killed and six others wounded by celebratory gunfire.

Gaza is ruled by Hamas, a local offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood....

"Today is new era for us in Gaza. The days of suffering due to the Egyptian authorities are over," said Rawhi Talab, 51, a storeowner. "It's a day of joy ... I voice my hope that Egypt will work to improve our life here.”

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh phoned Morsi to congratulate him on becoming Egypt's first Islamist president. "This is a victory for all Arabs and Muslims, and this is God's promise to his believers," the Hamas leader said to the newly elected president....

Gaza resident Alam Mansour handed out candy to revelers. "Today is a festival for Gaza," the 25-year-old engineering student said. "I am sure that the president of Egypt will lead the Islamic nation to great prosperity, and he will help us here in Gaza," he said....

The impoverished enclave burst into celebration upon hearing that the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsy had won elections after former president Hosni Mubarak fell in a people's revolt last year....

"We will look to Egypt to play a big, leading role, a historic role, regarding the Palestinian cause, in helping the Palestinian nation get freedom, return home, and totally end the Gaza siege," Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas government, told Reuters Television....

We'll see but it doesn't look good at the moment.

'A new Egypt, but is it an improvement?

'Former deputy national security advisor Elliott Abrams explains what is ahead:“Morsi’s narrow victory sets the stage for a continuing fight in Egypt between the Brotherhood and all opposing forces — from the Army to the Copts to secular, liberal forces.” As for U.S. policy he counsels:“We should make it clear that relations between the US and Egypt will depend on whether the new Brotherhood-led government respects human rights and plays a constructive role in the region, including maintaining the peace treaty with Israel. And we should quietly consult with Egyptians who want a modern, democratic Egypt to see what we can do to help them in the long-term struggle they are now in.”

In the short term it is not certain how much authority Morsi will have. Stephen McInerney, executive director of Project on Middle East Democracy, tells me that “it’s unclear just how much political power Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood will have, following a constitutional declaration stripping key powers from the president and a court ruling resulting in the dissolution of the Brotherhood-led parliament. The days and weeks ahead will reveal much about the balance of power moving forward, as Morsi forms a government and we see whether the Brotherhood pushes back against the recent moves by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to retain control.”

There should be no going back to a corrupt and repressive dictatorship, but neither should the U.S. blindly celebrate elections for the sake of elections. Hamas won the 2006 Palestinian election, which turned into a disaster both for Israel and the Palestinians. It is behavior that counts, and we should use the array of carrots (trade, investment, aid, technical assistance, diplomatic respect) and sticks (diminishment of all of the above). We may, however, slightly influence the conduct of Egypt’s new government. But more to the point, we will maintain our own credibility as a force for liberty. We want to avoid a replay of Bahrain, where our support for the ruling government and resumption of arms shipments has turned the populace against the United States.'

Never seen anything good coming from muslim politics yet... but who knows? There a first time for everything.

What do you think about him picking "christian woman" as vice president?

www.cnn.com/2012/06/26/world/meast/egypt-poli...

Egypt's first ever democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, will make history in another way: by appointing a woman as vice president, his policy adviser told CNN.

He will also choose another vice president who is Christian, Ahmed Deif said.

The news came as the man Morsi beat for the presidency, Ahmed Shafik, left Egypt on a trip to Abu Dhabi, and as Cairo's administrative court overturned a rule that allowed the military to arrest people without a warrant.

"For the first time in Egyptian history -- not just modern but in all Egyptian history -- a woman will take that position," Deif told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Monday, referring to one of the vice presidency slots. "And it's not just a vice president who will represent a certain agenda and sect, but a vice president who is powerful and empowered, and will be taking care of critical advising within the presidential Cabinet."

To be fair, it's all very well and good memorising the Koran (or any other religious book) but can he put the teachings into peaceful practice?

People like Hasan Al-Banna, Sayyid Qutb, Ayman Zawahiri all known to have memorized entire Quran, see what problems they brought to the world.

Ex-muslims like Sam Solomon, Mark Gabriel, Timothy Abraham (later 2 were egyptions) also memorized Quran but later left Islam.

a muslim celebratory song -

bullets keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean that i fear being dead
virgins are ok by me
Cause I'm never gonna stop the bullets by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothing's worrying me.

Supernatural vs humanly, how do we start comparing? Not sure is Satan has brain cells to be programmed, but biblically it did quote from scripture. But to memorize or "know" inside-out is one thing, you could just as well throw it in a trash bin. That is the choice the results of keeping it.

Prayers for Egypt
The Washington, D.C., area’s large Egyptian Christian community experiences gloom and rising panic in the wake of elections in Egypt that propelled a member of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood to the presidency.

Daniel Habashi tosses a football at the summer day-camp hosted by St. Marks Coptic Christian Church in Fairfax. The Muslim Brotherhood's increased hold on Egyptian government has given local Egyptian-American Christians reason to attend church. They fear friends and family abroad will be persecuted as the minority religion.

Yes pray like the articles says, pray that God cleanses the idol worshipers from the land.
