Egypt Falls Over the Islamic Cliff

Both the Islamists and the opposition in Egypt confirmed that Egyptians overwhelmingly chose to become yet another Islamic, Sharia-based state with the adoption of their new constitution.

It is estimated that 64% of those voting in both rounds, voted “yes”, with numerous irregularities reported during both votes.

And to top it off, as pointed out in Forbes, the new constitution does more than just enshrine Islamic Sharia law, it also enshrines socialism as their economic structure.

Ahram Online reports that Egyptian President Morsi has announced his list of 90 representatives who will become members of the Shura council (out of 270 members).  The Shura Council will take on the powers from the president to issue laws.

But despite Morsi including a handful of women and minorities in his list, Ahram Online reports:

Tens of liberal and leftist figures have declined the positions offered to them by the president in the Shura Council.

This means that members of the main opposition’s parties, previously represented in the now-dismantled People’s Assembly, are now not represented in new appointments to the Shura Council.

One Response to “Egypt Falls Over the Islamic Cliff”

  1. Two things here, as an american, 1st. – the 64% of the voters ONLY made up 1/3 of the country's population, so how can either number be the base for creating a legit govt. for Egypt. IF 2/3's stayed home, did not vote, then there is NO basis for a legal Egyptian govt.. 2nd. – if one is offered a position in the govt., a place of power, and one does not take it or put your folks into those (that) position, are YOU not cutting off your nose to save your face and that is a silly position to take! So how can the moderates and other groups in Egypt say that they were NOT included in any coming govt. formation?
