Obama Joins Iran In Hailing Morsi Win In Egypt

Both Iran and the White House hailed the victory of Egypt’s president-elect Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood this weekend. For it’s part, the White House believes it represents a “milestone in (Egypt’s) transition to democracy,” while Iran views it as a “revolutionary movement of the Egyptian people… in its final stages of the Islamic Awakening and a new era of change in the Middle East.”

What remains to be seen is just how the Muslim Brotherhood president interprets the results himself. Now tasked with forming a government, some remain skeptical. Rep. Alan West took to Facebook, voicing his reservations in no uncertain terms. West called it “an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, calling upon Obama “to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.”
