The Head of the Election Committee said that the Freedom and Justice party, which represents the Muslim Brothers in Egypt, received 47% of the total vote, and Al Nour, a hard-line Salafist party, has another 25%.
The Muslim Brotherhood is expected to receive 235 seats out of the 498 seats in Parliament. Al Nour will receive 121 seats.
There will be an attack on Israel within 3 years.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

This is the sort of negative thinking of the right wing. I was just reading an article about preppers, a new generation of survivalist types who are stocking up on supplies for the impending collapse of our nation. Want to bet they're most white conservatives? Conservatives also think that most Muslims want Sharia law here or are terrorists, that gays want to destroy marriage, that the inner cities are all crime and drugs, and so on. They are paranoid. I find conservatives, typically living in their lilly white communities, armed with guns, as truly out of touch. Egypt is undergoing change, and yes there's a chance that the new regime can be rabidly anti-Israel, but the winning party has declared its interest in governing and not rehashing old battles, and there's a powerful progressive movement with women suing for rights, young people demanding a greater voice, and people from all walks of life fighting for a more civilized nation.
What's going on in Egypt is the age old battle of conservatives vs. progressive, and the reality is that conservatives never win. Look at them here. We see despite the dire conservative warnings, the murder rate is dropping, unemployment is dropping, gay marriage hasn't hurt straight marriage, multi-culturalism has not destroyed our country, the women's vote has only helped us, freeing the slaves has made us a better place, the minimum wage has helped many people move into the middle class, the CRA increased home ownership in poor communities, and so on. Sure, no country is perfect, but putting faith in the hands of the people over time plays out for the best. Don't be so afraid of democracy PF13.
Patters, don't worry about "the preppers" Louis Farrakhan and his "gang" will take care of them they have been doing the same thing, both of those Gangs think a lot alike, racism is the only thing that seperates them.

In The Absence Of Law And Order Society Will Surely Destroy Itself
In your right blindedness, which you will deny, this is the same old.. the right loves to criticize, but never offer a solution.
When the BP well let go, there was constant criticism that Obama did not know what he was doing.. I asked what should he do, and there was silence.
When Libya happend, there was constant criticism that Obama did not know what he was doing.. I asked what he should do, and there was silence once again.
Egypt happened, and it is intimated that Obama did not do something.. when asked what he should do, there was silence again.
The point is that there is a lot of criticism, but there is never a suggestion as to what can be done differently..
I am not part of the right or the left and that truly is a fact, not an opinion. Just because one does not follow lock-step to partisan values does not make them a member of the "other side". You may have your opinion because you're entitled to it, but I'm the only one who can determine where I fall on the political spectrum. Heck, even many democrats are conservative democrats.
I must admit you have a good point here. I guess that's become the American way...the easy way. We like to criticize, but rarely offer solutions.
What I would hope to happen if an Arab nation were to attack Israel is that in international force would stop it. I would also hope that force would include China and Russia.
The world can't afford to allow Israel to be destroyed.
