I tried to tell you. I told you a year ago and longer ago than that — that the “Arab Spring” would not be a flowering of Western-style democracy and pluralism, but the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood and other pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists. And here we are. “Islamists win 80% of Egypt’s upper parliament vote,” by Oren Kessler for the Jerusalem Post, February 26 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
Islamist parties won more than 80 percent of seats in Egypt’s upper house of parliament, the country’s election board announced Sunday.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party took 58 percent of the seats in contention, while the harder-line Salafist Al-Nour party came in second with a quarter of all seats. The nationalist Wafd party came in third with just 7 percent of the vote….
Islamists also dominated voting for the lower house of parliament, with the Brotherhood taking 38 percent and Al-Nour 27 percent.
