From a delighted al-Reuters:

Egypt’s Islamists claim sweep of second round vote

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt’s two leading Islamist parties said on Sunday their separate party lists secured about three-quarters of votes cast in the second round of a parliamentary election, extending their lead in the three-stage vote.

A source from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) said it was on track to win about 40 percent of votes for party lists, based on results from most districts.

A spokesman for the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nour Party said its list received about 35 percent of votes.

In the first round of the six-week poll, the FJP won about 37 percent of votes for lists and Nour secured about 24 percent…

Despite their commanding position built up so far in the vote that runs till January, it is unclear whether the two rival Islamist groups will form an alliance in parliament, as they have each spoken warily of the other

It is only "unclear" to the Western news media and the Obama administration and everyone else who wants to pretend that we are not witnessing Islamic fundamentalists taking over Egypt.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian military’s desperate efforts to fend off the mullahs is being portrayed by our watchdog media as a war against humanity.

Such as in this article, also from al-Reuters:

Egypt clashes move into 4th day, US worried

By Marwa Awad and Edmund Blair

CAIRO, Dec 19 (Reuters) – Egyptian security forces fought opponents of army rule in Cairo for a fourth day on Monday and the United States, worried by the violence, urged the generals to respect human rights.

Medical sources said the death toll had risen to 13 since Friday. Hundreds have been wounded and scores detained.

Police and soldiers using batons and teargas drove stone-throwing protesters out of Cairo’s Tahrir Square, hub of the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in February, overnight…

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the "excessive" force used against the demonstrations that have widened a rift among Egyptians over the role of the army and cast a shadow over the country’s first free election in decades.

An army general told a news conference "evil forces" wanted to sow chaos and he defended soldiers who had shown "self-restraint" despite provocation by those trying to burn down buildings and create discord between the army and the people.

These peace-loving protesters have done more than try to burn down buildings – they have succeeded. They have even tried to burn down an important Cairo library in an attempt to draw in foreign intervention, who they hope will give them power.

Soldiers have been filmed beating protesters with batons even after they have fallen to the ground. A Reuters picture showed two policemen dragging a prostrate woman by the shirt, exposing her underwear

The outrage! Soon that won’t be a problem, since all of the women will be in burkas.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was "deeply concerned" about the violence and urged the security forces "to respect and protect the universal rights of all Egyptians"

That is the smartest woman in the world talking. Hillary ‘Always On The Wrong Side Of History’ Clinton.

"From the start of the revolution, the evil forces have wanted to drag Egypt into a chaos, putting army into confrontation with the people," General Adel Emara said, adding those guarding state buildings had a right to self-defence.

"What is happening does not belong with the revolution and its pure youth, who never wanted to bring down this nation," he said, adding that troops had faced people wielding knives, petrol bombs and other weapons

But even this general is afraid to point out who these forces are. But, of course, they are the Muslim Brotherhood and their fellow radical Muslims.

    Well, Hillary we were already deeply concerned when you and Obama supported the coup. So, did McCain so we need to know the Republican candidates take on this, aside Ron Paul and Governor Perry who have spoke out against our involvement in these disputes, and separate from the issue of Obama engaging U.S. Troops in wars without Congressional approval.

    The Muslim Brotherhood officially gained control of the elections a month or so ago, and it was clear where Egypt would “beheaded”. They announced new leadership in Egypt will have extreme Islamic law. Women will be forced to wear face covers, and won’t be able to drive, even though Saudi’s women finally are allowed to drive now. I’m sure there’s strings to that one as to who,when, and where they can drive.

    Why is the media avoiding for months now some muslims in Egypt have been blowing up oil lines. Forget their creeks, they s**t on the furniture and floors in their homes.

    The only one who was smart enough to get entangled in Arab politics was Reagan, as he armed 1 loser (Iraq) to gun down the other loser (Iran)—-brilliant! And he was smart enough to get out of Lebanon when he did.

    You ALWAYS have to protect the revolution from the counter-revolution that inevitably follows. Anyone with half a brain knows the islamist were going to rush in before the concrete had a chance to settle. This is the same technique SOCIALIST use. They run down the government, help the revolution, then strike again when people aren’t suspecting.

    Islamists don’ need no stinkin’ ‘percentage’ to justify rape & murder.
