Breaking: Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Wins Egyptian Election! (Video) …Update: Morsi Says “Our Capital Shall Be Jerusalem!”

Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi wins the Egyptian presidential election.
The radical Morsi will replace former American ally Hosni Mubarak as leader of the largest Arab nation.

Morsi promised Islamic Law in Egypt during his campaign.

Egyptian secular leaders blasted the Obama administration’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood this weekend.

USA Today reported:

The announcement of the president was supposed to be the end of Egypt’s post-uprising transition to democracy. However the military made a series of last minute moves that stripped the office of president of most of its major powers and kept those powers concentrated in the hands of the military. A court ruling a few days before that dissolved the freely elected parliament that was dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

In Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the birthplace of the pro-democracy uprising, a swelling crowd of thousands gathered in sweltering midday heat awaiting the announcement. They were a mix of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and ultraconservative Islamists known as Salafis along with some of the revolutionary youth groups that drove last year’s uprising. A separate pro-Shafiq rally of some 2000 protesters gathered in northern Cairo district of Nasr City.

UPDATE: Mohammed Morsi told supporters earlier this year,
“Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem!”
