    I ask – Why is the military cracking down so severely, if they are supposed to relinquish control sometime after the elections take place, anyways ??

    This, does not bode well. 😦

    The Muslim Brotherhood can’t wait to take control! Their first item on their agenda is to annihilate Israel!

    The Psalm 83 War is being set up….

    This is certainly an interesting scenario. I’m not sure what is really going on, but it doesn’t look good.

    Egypt: Egypt Runoff Exposes Tensions Between Islamists:
    A runoff Monday for Egypt’s first-round parliamentary elections exposed tensions between competing Islamist parties that have so far dominated the vote. In the southern province of Assiut, supporters of hardline Islamist party Gamaa Islamiya attacked and chased away campaign workers from the Muslim Brotherhood outside a polling station where the two groups were facing off in a vote. Supporters of one Brotherhood candidate said they received death threats and one of their clerics was beaten up by campaign workers of Gamaa Islamiya – an ex-militant group-turned-political party. The Brotherhood, the most established and organized party running, is in the lead so far, according to official results released on Sunday. Gamaa Islamiya is part of the second-place Al-Nour alliance with the ultraconservative Salafists, hard-liners who seek to impose strict Islamic law on Egypt. The elections are the first since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster in an uprising in February and are the freest and fairest in living memory.
