The recent Egyptian referendum on constitutional changes received 77.2% approval votes. These changes will be made by the new parliament to be elected in September 2011. Both the National Democratic (Hosni Mubarak’s ruling party) and and the banned Muslim Broterhood had called for a ‘YES’ for the consitutional changes.
There are nine proposed changes to be made in the 1971 constitution including a two four-year-terms limit for the President and free elections for both Parliament and President.
One of Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, Kamal al-Halbawi, scared the hell out of the Zionist-regime by not only visiting Tehran but also saying that he wants Egypt to be an Islamic State like Iran and have a leader like Ahmadinejad. However, the failure of Muslim Brotherhood to achieve any such result is due to its principle thinking of bringing Islam into government through the western secular political system. Imam Khomeini could not have achieved that in Iran. The Islamic political parties in both Pakistan and Tunis, have failed for the same reason.
Muslim Brotherhood leaders have announced to get the organization re-registered as a political party after the constitution changes and ahead of the expected new presidential election before the end of 2011.
The Jewish Lobby leaders in the US and the Zionist-regime have shown their nervousness on the prospects of Muslim Brotherhood taking a role in any democratically elected government in the future. Even though the newly appointed US Director of National Intellegence, James Clapper, told House Intelligence Committee that Muslim Brotherhood is strictly Kosher – it has no military arm to wage war against Israel. To be on the safe side – Israel would prefer to maintain a military or a secular civilian dictatorship in Cairo.
Interestingly, the former head of IAEA, Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, an acceptable civilian presidential candidate to Washington – had to run from the polling station after being pelted by rocks.
