Expert: Egypt Election Results Are a Nightmare Come True
Israel's worst fears regarding its relationship with the Arab world and with Egypt in particular - are coming true before its eyes, Middle East expert Dr. David Buk'i told Arutz 7 in an interview Saturday night. The rise of the Islamists in Egypt means the end of the peace treaty with Egypt and the rise of a government committed to the ideological Islamist goal of the destruction of the State of Israel, Buk'i said.

With results in from the first round of voting in Egypt, it's clear that the Islamist coalition has emerged as the largest faction in the future Egyptian government, by far. The Muslim Brotherhood captured more than 40% of the vote, but the hardline Islamist Salafist Nour Party garnered some 20% of the vote placing the Islamist coalition firmly in control of Egypt's parliament, at least until the second round of voting in several weeks.

Buk'i is not surprised at the results, and in fact, he says, he warned months ago that this was exactly what would happen. It was already clear to me last February that the uprisings in the Arab world were not an 'Arab spring,' but rather a bitter 'Arab winter' and a return to chaos and violence.When you give a Muslim a free voice in electing his leaders, he will pick an Islamist leadership every time, because that's what he knows and appreciates. That the Muslim Brotherhood will solve Egypt's problems is clear to the average Egyptian, Buk'i said.

And once Islamism is firmly planted, it spreads quickly, says Buk'i. The foolish West helped Al-Qaeda win in Libya, and Al-Qaeda now controls Tunisia. And it is spreading to other nations. There are two powers in the Arab world military dictatorships and Islamism, and it is in the interests of the West to side with the dictatorships. Tragedy and catastrophe ensue when Islamists win, he added. Israel is seeing the catastrophe unfold now.

1. What nonsense
"The foolish West helped Al-Qaeda win in Libya, and Al-Qaeda now controls Tunisia"

Tell a Libyan that Al-Qaeda won in Libya, and he/she will laugh in your face.

pushing the envelope for some time now. Live by the sword... Well ya know the rest. Sorry to say that we in the US had to live through Bush/Cheney for eight years, and that was very destructive to say the least. Lets hope that the Israeli's vote for a better result next time around.

6. Blame the rape victim
Egyptians will suffer more for the folly of embracing tyrants and despots in this election than Israel will. Besides, your analogy is fundamentally flawed. IT is akin to blaming the rape victim.

4. yeah they should have kept their fucking dictator
that would have been much better.

Egypt will be fine. Relax. Israel is as religiously impaired by their wackadoodles as Egypt will be by their own wackadoodles. A pox on all wackadoodles.

5. This little piece...
was written to cater to people stupid enough to believe it. Like how Pamela Geller does her thing on Islam. It's not mean to be read by people with the ability to think for themselves.
