“The Islamists have cut Islam to their own measurements, and it is not the Islam we know, a religion of mercy. Now we look like terrorists to the world.”

This from David Kirkpatrick’s latest New York Times’ dispatch from Cairo (co-authored by Kareem Fahim.) Kirkpatrick’s work has been extraordinary throughout the latest crisis, and this report is full of key details on yesterday’s voting on the jammed down referendum.

The Muslim Brotherhood is claiming victory. Protests over the low turnout and fraud are mounting. Less than a third of Egyptians voted in the provinces where the election was coducted.

The awful slaughter in Newtown has of course absorbed the attention of America, but when they look up they will likely find that Egypt has been lost for generations to hard-line Islamists via a “constitution” that empowers Sharia and slices the rights of the Copts and secularists to bits. The president and Secretary of State Clinton did nothing to prevent this, and the “new Egypt” is half of their triple legacy, along with a nuclear Iran and a bleeding Syria en route to becoming another Islamist theocracy.
