Expert: Egypt Election Results Are a Nightmare Come True
Israel's worst fears regarding its relationship with Egypt are coming true before its eyes, Middle East expert Dr. David Buk'i says.

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.
Peace treaty? Did any Jew in his right mind believe that Egypt, ie. Sadat, Mubarik, Egyptian on the street, wanted peace with Israel?
Maybe they wanted the Sinai Peninsula back.
Maybe then wanted Israeli tourists to spend money in their country.
Maybe they wanted a respite from the Yom Kippur War....
But, peace? No. They're Arabs for goodness sakes! Wake up!
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.
Last February? You have got to be kidding? Look a little farther than that, a lot farther than that.
At least this "expert" was right about one thing, when an Egyptian (Read: "Arab") has the freedom to express himself, he will choose the party which open about its desire to wipe out the Jewish People.
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.”
Well, how about that? This "expert" is right about another thing, too. The foolish West (Esau) mixing into the Arabs' (Yishma'el's) affairs has never helped anyone, particularly Jews, except for those Western leaders (Esau's) selfish motives.
Now, let me tell you what the real nightmare is.
The real nightmare is that Jews still live outside of their only, true homeland, and have become too comfortable in the lands of their sojourns, in the lands where are truly strangers.
The real nightmare exists simultaneously in England, France, and Belgium where Jews are in physical danger.
The real nightmare exists in South Africa where Jews prefer their creature comforts in a country with a rapist for a president, rather than in the land which was promised to them by The Holy One, Blessed Be He.
The real nightmare is when "experts" claim that Jews are actually safe, remaining in Turkey, one of the next countries up for grabs by Islamic extremists.
The real nightmare is that Prime Minister Netanyahu has given up on encouraging Israelis to return home.
The real nightmare is that American Jews were the ones who pressured Netanyahu to back down.
The real nightmare is that American Jews are quite comfortable in their strange land, and that American Jewish organizations and so-called "rabbis" (who to keep their powerful and high-paying jobs) are behind the push to keep Jews there.
OK. So, I was wrong. There are actually quite a few nightmares. But, the Egyptian elections aren't one of them. Those were just to be expected.
They are just another warning to what is to come.
Thank The Almighty that he is communicating with us so directly, reminding us of what we need to do, before it's too late.
Will you listen to Him this time?
