    How bad will it get in Egypt?

    How bad will it get in Egypt?

    Via Times of Israel:

    Egypt will release results from disputed presidential elections Sunday, the country’s top elections commission official said — an announcement that will put an end to the country’s nerve-wracking uncertainty about who is the official winner, but promises no end to the power struggles between Islamists, the military and other factions.

    A gathering of secular-leaning politicians criticized on Saturday what they said was US meddling on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has claimed victory. Other secularists have stood behind the Islamist group, calling it the likely legitimate winner and the best hope in the current circumstances against continued military domination of the country….

    The Islamist group has compiled what it says is a detailed breakdown of election results proving Morsi’s victory. Brotherhood leaders have called their followers to Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the birthplace of the 2011 uprising that overthrew Mubarak. Along with some secular-leaning activist groups, the protesters have vowed “a new revolution” if Shafiq is the winner, claiming that a loss would prove that election fraud was orchestrated by the military.

    Meanwhile, the ruling generals accused Islamists of stirring tension and threatened to crack down on any violence by any group unhappy with election outcome.

    I wonder if Obama’s Google Guy is anywhere to be found.
