‘Islamists’ Claim To Have Won 1st Referendum

From CNN:

Islamists claim victory in 1st round of Egypt referendum

By Amir Ahmed | December 16, 2012

(CNN) — With the first round of voting over, Egypt’s ruling Freedom and Justice Party declared Sunday that citizens had given their thumbs-up to a controversial draft constitution.

For all intents and purposes this is the final nail in Egypt’s coffin. They are now an Islamic state. And, lest we forget, this is exactly what we predicted and what we were told by the Obama administration would never happen. And the same news media that lied to us then is barely covering this now.

And Hillary won’t ever remember her role in putting the Muslim Brotherhood in power. Neither will Obama or the media. There will be a sudden epidemic of ‘concussions.’

But a coalition of 123 local rights groups that monitored the Saturday referendum alleged widespread abuses.

One man’s abuses is another’s ‘Chicago Way.’

And the nation’s electoral commission acknowledged that it received — and will investigate — complaints of voter intimidation, bribery and other violations.

Just like in our country. And just like in our country these complaints will be ignored because the right party won.

The commission said it would not announce official results until after second phase of voting December 22.

But that didn’t stop President Mohamed Morsy’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) from claiming that 56.6% of the ballots were in favor of the draft; while 43.5% rejected it.

The big turnout in Alexandria — Egypt’s second most populous city and a stronghold of conservative Muslims — appears to have made a big difference in tilting the preliminary results towards a ‘yes’ vote, party members said…

Just like in our country, where the big cities carried the day.

"The democratic process in this first phase of this referendum … stresses the people’s desire to reach political and constitutional stability, despite all the unjust and harsh smear campaigns," the party statement said. "The process took place in an atmosphere full of integrity, transparency, and under full judicial supervision as well as presence of local and international media and human rights groups." …

Just like in our country.

"There were cases of voter intimidation, delaying the voting process, and early closure of some voting centers with no clear reasons," the Egyptian Coalition for Monitoring Elections said in a statement late Saturday.

The government-funded National Council for Human Rights backed up some claims of minor violations, including early closure of voting stations…

They’re just sore losers. The election was stolen fair and square.

    Concussions can cause short-term memory loss,
    even to forgetting that one occured. So her absence
    from the Congressional hearings on Lybia won’t be
    missed.

    Islamist Referendums flow through the barrel of gun held by a fanatic
