Egyptians caught between a rock and a hard place: Must choose between Muslim Brotherhood and Military rule!

Blogman's Notes: Back in Feb. of 2011 CNN's Anderson Cooper was in Cairo proclaiming a great victory for the Egyptian people as they embraced Democracy and finally became free after more than 3000 years of serfdom. However many of us in the alternative media were much more cautious that this movement could not possibly be an organic one, could not possibly be a grass roots movement but must have been fomented by outside powers. As we expected, Egypt is still embroiled in a power struggle that will almost certainly lead to civil war as has already happened in Libya and is happening in Syria. So today, the Egyptians, which are historically a moderate people, have supposedly elected a Muslim brotherhood government. But the Army that has been entrenched in power for decades is not willing to let go that easily. So the Egyptian people, as the Libyans and the Syrians, are now the victims of forces, internal and external, that will bring them much pain and destruction in the coming days and months. Jesus Himself prophesied that in the days of the end, kingdom must rise against kingdom, and nation against nation, much more so than is the historic norm. So I look for such unrest, protests, rebellions, civil wars and wars to increase, not decrease, as we move through the rest of this decade and into 2020. No, 2012 will not be the end of the world but it may well be the beginning of the end of the world.
Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
(Reuters) - Allegations of fraud delayed the result of Egypt's presidential election on Thursday, fraying nerves as the Muslim Brotherhood, which claims victory, threatened to take to the streets in protest at moves by the ruling generals to deny them power.

For a second night, thousands of protesters gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square, cauldron of the revolution that overthrew Hosni Mubarak 16 months ago, to demand that the officers who pushed him aside keep their word and hand over to civilians by July 1.

Though there is little sign that will happen after the ruling military council dissolved the Islamist-led parliament and set strict limits on the new president's powers, prominent Islamists sought to dampen talk of violence, for all their promise of permanent town square vigils until their demands are met.
