White House downplays Islamic supremacist, pro-Sharia power grab in Egypt
No surprises here. Not long ago the Obama regime had the hide to tell us that the MuBro’s are “largely secular”.
What else can the Obama Administration do? It hailed the coming of “democracy” to Egypt; now it can only hope that few Americans notice that what is developing there is anything but democracy. Of course, the mainstream media will do its bit to make Obama look as good as possible and keep Americans clueless and complacent.

New Egyptian Constitution Is Recipe for Tyranny (Moonbattery)
If you are ever tempted to take liberal claims to mean well at face value, consider this. Since September 11 and even before, they have sided with Muslims against the West at every opportunity. They elected the absurdly unqualified Barack Hussein Obama not only because his father was an African communist, but because they liked the sound of his name. Obama knifed our key ally Hosni Mubarak in the back, helping turn over Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt’s new rulers have prepared a draft constitution that is based on “principles of Islamic law.” A few highlights:
A new article states that Egypt’s most respected Islamic institution, Al-Azhar, must be consulted on any matters related to Shariah, a measure critics fear will lead to oversight of legislation by clerics. (Continued below the fold)
Eileen F. Toplansky from the American Thinker:
A little Egyptian girl born today named Jendayi (which means thankful) will one day grow to know only the following sharia-enforced laws, as elucidated by Syed Kamran Mirza.
- A marriage that can take place any time after birth and be consummated at the age of eight or nine years old.
- If Jendayi should be rebellious in any way, this gives her husband permission to beat her and keep her from leaving the home.
- Since there is no common property between a husband and a wife, if the husband dies, his property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.
- A woman inherits half what a man inherits.
- A man has the right to have up to four wives, and the wife has no right to divorce him even if he is polygamous.
- The dowry is given in exchange for the woman’s sexual organs. Thus, Jendayi is objectified as simply a reproductive machine.
- A man is allowed to have sex with slave women. Indeed, slavery still exists in the Arab world.
- If the enslaved woman is married, her own marriage is annulled.
- The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man — that is, two women are equal to one man.
- A woman loses custody of her children if she remarries.
- A rapist may be required only to pay the bride-money or dowry without marrying the rape victim.
- A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body which is considered “Awrah,” or a sexual organ.
- A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women.
- The perpetrators of genocide, mass rape, and plunder will not be punished if they repent.
- To prove rape, a woman must have four male witnesses. Furthermore, any woman’s testimony is not accepted.
- A Muslim man’s life is worth 33 times that of a Hindu woman in paying “blood money” or compensation.
Besides these draconian indignities, freedom of speech is non-existent. Even to sing any “modern music including any sexually explicit music of any kind is strictly prohibited and punishable by the Islamic sharia code of justice.” Jendayi will have little to be thankful for.
Yet there is nary a peep from Obama, who “refuses to criticize Egypt’s anti-free speech, and anti-women’s rights constitution, but finds time to criticize new Israeli housing projects.” So while the sinister threats to women, Christians, and any opposed to sharia imposition continue, Barack Hussein Obama remains mute.
