Muslim Brotherhood wins no seats in final round of Egyptian `elections'. What a surprise!

The Muslim Brotherhood won no seats in the final round of Egypt’s parliamentary elections..but that was after after police barred thousands of its supporters from casting ballots, closed off polling places in Muslim Brotherhood strongholds and made sure the `official' results continued to favor Mubarek's ruling party.IOL: Muslim Brotherhood 'won no seats' in Egypt elections

The final runoff election is still to come.

When and if Egypt has an actual election after an aging Mubarek dies, don't be surprised if Egypt ends up with a democratically elected hardline Islamist government-and puts an end to the Egyptian-Israeli Camp David Accords.
