The Iranian regime congratulated Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi after the Islamist leader won a 57 percent “yes” vote for the Sharia-based constitution in voting this past weekend.
Fars News reported:

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani praised the Egyptian people for their high turnout in the Saturday referendum, and welcomed their support for the new constitution which has been”Despite the plots and conspiracies hatched on the international scene against Egypt, 57% of the Egyptian people stressed, by their presence at the ballot boxes, that Egypt’s laws should be based on the Islamic Sharia,” Larijani said in Tehran on Monday.

The Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt declared a victory in the first round of a hotly contested constitutional referendum. The Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, said Sunday its own unofficial exit polls showed 56.5% of voters cast ballots in favor of the draft constitution on Saturday.

The Freedom and Justice Party on Sunday said the voting unfolded in an “atmosphere of integrity and transparency under full supervision of the judiciary the local and international media and human-rights groups.”

During past elections, the Brotherhood has used its massive ground-level campaign network to keep reliable exit polls and turnout data that closely reflect final and official results. Final official results are expected soon after next Saturday’s second round.

The second round of voting, due to be held on Saturday, is expected to give another “yes” as voting will be in districts seen as even more sympathetic towards Islamists.

    BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! There is other news besides the death of the precious little ones. I grieved for them like everyone else, but this is the crisis Obama, Clinton and the others hide behind. Obama – the economy, Clinton and her second Vince foster cover up on the four lives lost in Benghazi. The doctor’s life saved for the loss of a brave Seal. What is happening in Syria – did they stop fighting because our precious little one lost their lives????? What about China and Japan and Korea??? The weather stopped happening and there are no longer storms and earthquakes????? Did the whole world stop just because of this one tragic incident???? What is wrong with this picture??????

    The photo in the last post’s ( ) caption claims the woman was waiting to vote- you can see the ink on her pinkie finger. Now this photo has a woman wearing gloves, interesting…

    I’m waiting to hear from the Mooch about voter suppression.

  • Any Egyptian woman that voted for this deserves what she gets. All others have my deepest and most sincere sympathy. Get busy Code Pink, Liberals, and Democrats, here’s a REAL war on women for you to object to and fight. What’s that? I don’t hear anything from you. Oh, yeah, I forgot, this is real and these people aren’t Republicans.

    I couldn’t find the audio on Youtube (how funny, everything else is there). This is a really good song if you can find it. It’s on the album “Once” by Roy Harper.

    I’m sick to the teeth of the news on the screen
    of hisbullah scum and jihad the obscene
    whose men plant the bombs and then live feeling free
    to watch women and children be killed on T.V.
    which satan delivers a child a death curse
    in the name of a worn out collection of verse
    I’ve not read the book so I cannot recite
    but I’d bet Salman Rushdie is just about right
    underneath the black cloud of islam

    What kind of publicity needs so much blood
    that’s not for some sad diabolical god
    selling himself as a two-bit Macbeth
    as the expert in sentencing cousins to death
    and what kind of god can this be anyway
    that you gotta prostrate to him five times a day
    with hate in your heart and a gun in your hand
    is force the only thing to understand
    underneath the black cloud of islam?

    and the butchers who’ve got all this blood on their hands
    are the ones who need god to be stood where he stands
    blessing this kidnapping, murder and war
    with books written hundreds of ages before
    and women in veils walking paces behind
    doesn’t sit easy in my kind of mind
    it speaks of oppression and no other choice
    that rigid compliance with the loudest voice
    underneath the black cloud of islam

    You can put a lead bullet clean through this guitar
    ‘cos I’m not overjoyed with the story so far
    sharing a world with the nutters of god
    is as good as being six feet under the sod
    words that are written are all here to stay
    and these are the latest there are anyway
    and I am the prophet so don’t believe me
    I’m the same as the old ones except that I’m free
    to give you a piece of my mind which is this
    you’re the worst of jehovas blind witlessnesses
    with your feet in the door of the deepest abyss
    which is underneath, which is underneath, which is underneath
    the black cloud of islam.

    Wait until they propose bagging all American women.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Are the other two women also Egyptian, or just there awaiting arrest?

    Just think of the covered female as being into voluntary idiocy…

  • saveus

    Thank obama for another disasterous foreign policy screw up ( but it was intentional once he promoted the MB in his Cairo speech and urged on the agitators, and lied about the MB to the US)
