Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood ‘Trying to Rig Poll with Gifts’ to Secure Election Victory

If their prophet Mohammed ‘prophesied‘ recent events surrounding the ‘Arab Spring’ as the rise of Islam, then it must be Allah’s will that those who wish to implement Allah’s Sharia Law win Egypt’s resulting first election.  Unless, of course, Allah decided to change his mind yet again. If it’s Allah’s will that it is the time for Islam to rise, then why would the Muslim Brotherhood feel the need to cheat in order to secure a victory at the polls?  And if Allah has indeed changed his mind, then why are they going against the will of Allah? …

“The Muslim Brotherhood was today accused of attempting to rig Egypt’s election by handing out gifts and food at polling stations in a desperate attempt to win power.

Witnesses told the Evening Standard that the Islamist party, which is expected to secure a large share of the votes, had a strong presence both inside and outside polling stations.

Onlookers claimed some Brotherhood groups were allowed to set up tables with laptop computers in order to show ‘people how to vote’.

Voting laws passed after the fall of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in February outlaw bribes or campaigning inside or near polling stations.

Bel Trew, a film-maker working in Tahrir Square, said: ‘We have seen people offering gifts to people outside polling stations. This is against the law and would certainly not be allowed in other democratic countries.’

Today voting continued with turnout again reported to be high. Student Mariam, who would not give her full name for fear of reprisals said: ‘I wanted to boycott the elections, as the parliament will have no power and because of what happened in Tahrir, but if we don’t vote the Muslim Brotherhood will win the majority.’

But there is growing support for the Muslim Brotherhood with many claiming the party is the best option to bring order to Egypt.

‘The Freedom and Justice Party (Muslim Brotherhood) are the most organised party right now,’ said Hossam, 39, an insurance broker who went to a Catholic school in Cairo.

They have a religious view but they are the only ones who have a good plan for the country.Read more.

Really? So a good plan for Egypt is to break the peace treaty with Israel, kill all Jews, and judge Christians according to the intolerant and barbaric injustices of Sharia jurisprudence?  

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Holds Venomous Anti-Israel Rally, Vows to ‘One Day Kill All Jews’ – “A Muslim Brotherhood rally in Cairo’s most prominent mosque Friday turned into a venomous anti-Israel protest, with attendants vowing to ‘one day kill all Jews.’ Some 5,000 people joined the rally, called to promote the ‘battle against Jerusalem’s Judaization.’ The event coincided with the anniversary of the United Nations’ partition plan in 1947, which called for the establishment of a Jewish state.” Read more.

Muslim Brotherhood Set to Take Egypt’s Parliament and Impose Sharia Law – “As Egypt prepares its upcoming Nov. 28 elections to build a new government, the rising power of the Muslim Brotherhood may pose great dangers to the Christians living there. The Middle East Media Research Institute revealed in a report that the Brotherhood first said that they will not force radical Islam on the country, but the group is now focused on winning the elections and it plans to impose Sharia law. These fears come after 25 Coptic Christians were killed last month during clashes with police and with state television inciting Muslims to rise against Christians… Christians will also be forced to follow the law, which includes ‘being judged according to the Muslim principles of justice and equality.'” Read more.
