‘Sheikdown’ Redux: Egyptian Islamists Threaten Insurgency Should Secularists Win Egyptian Presidential Election


Oh, and by the way, not only will Allah’s wrath be upon the people of Egypt if they vote for the wrong candidate, so will the wrath of Allah’s Islamists …

Isaiah 19:2, “And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, [and] kingdom against kingdom.”

By Michael Rubin, Commentary Magazine – “Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, while still mayor of Istanbul, famously quipped, ‘Democracy is like a streetcar. When you come to your stop, you get off.’ Alas, as Martin Kramer has so often warned, it appears that Egypt Islamists are taking the same tact. On May 19, Islamic Jihad Organization member Shaykh Usamah Qasim took to the pages of Al-Misri al-Yawm to warn that Islamists would not tolerate a victory by any of the non-Islamist candidates. According to a translation provided by the Open Source Center:

…The victory of former prime minister Ahmad Shafiq or former Arab League chief Amr Musa in the coming presidential elections would lead some Islamic and non-Islamic groups to respond with “armed action.” “Thus, the fate of any of them who reaches the presidency will be like that of former President Anwar al-Sadat, who was assassinated,” Qasim said.

One-in-three Middle Eastern Arabs live in Egypt. Unfortunately, it looks like the Nile may once again flow with blood.” Source – Commentary Magazine.
