Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood told supporters last month,
“Jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.”
Voice of Russia reported, via ROP:

Egypt’s Constitution should be based on the Koran and Sharia law, presidential candidate from the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement Mohamed Morsi said.

“The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in his election speech before Cairo University students on Saturday night.

Today Egypt is close as never before to the triumph of Islam at all the state levels, he said.

“Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals,” he said.

The Muslim Brotherhood Islamist group has been banned in Egypt for decades before being legalized following the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in last year’s popular uprising, and has since emerged as a powerful political force.

Today Morsi won the presidential elections in Egypt.
Egyptian secular party leaders blasted the Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    If death is your goal then by all means kill yourselves and leave us in peace.

    The sad part is that the MSM will see no connection at all between this and Obama’s policies. None whatsoever.

    It’s funny, they don’t even pretend to be unbiased anymore.

    American Jews supporting Obama will bear all responsibility for the fate of Israel.

    So in a couple of years we will have to invade Egypt as a State sponsor of Terrorism and eradicate the terrorist training camps, but Barry and Hillary are congrtulating them on their free elections. It makes my head want to explode.

    Sauron has turned his eye upon Middle Earth, errrr, Middle East. The orcs are amassing and will soon be upon us. They are coming!

    If Islamists succeeded in killing every non-Muslim on the planet, then then would begin killing other Muslims.

  • Valerie

    Gee, was he quoting the Hamas Covenant? I only have it in translation, but it sounds close.

    Article Eight: [in full]

    Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    William Butler Yeats
