Over-reach

A good article that summarizes and reports on the events in Egypt since the new power-grab by Islamist Morsi. Interesting that buried in the article is a statement that many equate the MB as an arm of our president’s administration.

It seems to me that Morsi actions were taken because he believed he gained political, international and popular capital with his work in bringing a peace treaty between Gaza and Israel and was anxious to use it immediately.

The Islamist will require an Islamist constitution in Egypt and when that work is completed and officially adopted then the people of Egypt will see what Morsi and the MB were all about.

 

Krauthammer’s newest column addresses the matter why exactly was there a war in Gaza?

All points lost on our current administration. The alarming reality of the change in the attitudes of our Muslim countries because of Islamist infestation of the governments.

All of this points to a bleak future for Israel. There will be absence of enduring real peace in Israel until the Lord Jesus Christ rules and reigns from Jerusalem with a rod of iron.

Until then Israel, Jerusalem will be a “cup of trembling” in the hands of the nations. Until then I will pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

[Revelation 19:15, Psalm 122:6,  Zechariah 12:2)

Mursi and MB continue moving to consolidate power and insulate themselves as the leadership in Egypt. O’s victor has given himself more powers and squelched secularists in the country.

From Reuters:

“As well as ordering retrials for Mubarak-era officials responsible for violence during the uprising against his rule, the decree shielded from legal challenge an Islamist-dominated assembly writing Egypt’s new constitution.

It gave the same protection to the upper house of parliament, dominated by Islamists allied to Mursi, and assigned the president new powers that allowed him to sack the Mubarak-era prosecutor general and appoint a new one.

It stated that all decisions taken by Mursi until the election of a new parliament were exempt from legal challenge.

Presented as a move to “protect the revolution”, the decree won immediate praise from Mursi’s allies but stoked fears among secular-minded Egyptians that the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies aim to dominate the new Egypt. It seemed likely to deepen the divisions that have plagued the post-Mubarak era.”

Hamas started firing missiles into Israel. After about three days of this Israel was able to target and kill the Hamas so called military leader. Hundreds of missiles are fired on Israel each day for the past week. Israel has slowly begun calculated strikes at areas where they have determined missiles are being fired from. Of course the Hamas being the cowards and murders that they are – place their missile and troops housing in the subdivisions (so to speak) of Hamas as protection via human shields. So daycare, schools and hospitals are the shields for these cowards.

Note in the article that MB leader of Egypt calls Israel “occupiers”.

Note that Hamas and Egypt position Israel as the aggressor in this past week’s activity.

There will be no peace in Israel as long as Hamas, MB and Hezbollah are allowed to exist in the region.

Gender gap?

“President Obama won women by 12 percentage points, while Mitt Romney won men by 8. That’s a 20-point gender gap, edging out the 1984 election when Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale in a landslide. ”

Quote is from 11/9/12 article on data from Gallup.

If that is correct analysis of all the actual vote data I have 2 questions:

1. Ladies, why?

2. Why does Gallup or anyone have a db of actual voting data? I want to see that data and confirm our votes were recorded accurately ( you should too).

UPDATE: I just read in Krauthammer’s newest article that in voting demographics the female gender gap is specifically tied to single women.

Sigh

For the 48% of us, this is really bad news.

For the 50% of them, this is bad news – but they deserve it.
They deserve having a partisan, arrogant individual as their president who is incapable of providing leadership.

I guess I will see if my fears about the whole Iran nuclear issue will play out.
I will also see if my fears about his liberal socialistic leanings will play out here in the USA.

Prognosis for our country: Four more years of economic malaise and four more years of bitter partisan maneuvers in our government.
