EGYPT’S FIRST FREE ELECTIONS IN 5,000 YEARS RESULTS IN ISLAMIC VICTORY

 GUESS WHO IS REALLY IN CHARGE

         For the first time in 5,000 years the land of the Pharoahs first freely   elected  president, the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Dr. Mohammed Morsi, 60, Chairman of its Freedom and Justice Party, was sworn into office June 30, 2012 after the military gave itself powers to arrest civilians for minor offenses such as traffic violations, amend the constitution, create laws, and removed  presidential powers including declaring war (on Israel), and the Hosni Mubarak appointed supreme court dissolved the Islamic dominated first ever elected parliament in Egyptian history.  

         Morsi (above and below) stated he would fight to regain the presidential powers stripped from his office by the military.      

        Morsi defeated the runner up in the first round elections, Ahmed Shafiq, 70, a  former air force general and last prime minister (until Feb. 11, 2011) in the Mubarak regime,  and supported protest  against the life sentence in prison (instead of death) given to 84 year old ill Mubarak where his wife was allowed to visit him because of his deteriorating health (going in and out of comas).    

         After being declared dead he was moved back to a military hospital.
