Christians in Egypt Blamed for Voting by Islamists

Christians in Egypt Blamed for Voting by Islamists:

 "By Michael Ireland

CAIRO, EGYPT (ANS) -- The official results of the first round of the Egyptian presidential elections were announced today, and the run-off will be between Mohamed Morsy, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, and Air Marshal Ahmad Shafik, former President Hosni Mubarak's last PM, who served for less than one month during the revolution and before Mubarak was ousted.

According to Egyptian journalist Mary Abdelmassih, writing for AINA -- Assyrian International News Agency,  , these results, which were expected since Friday, have enraged many Egyptians who feel that they are left with two options, each worse than the other, namely either going back to the Mubarak regime represented by Shafik or the Islamists who will drag Egypt into being another Afghanistan or Iran. Nasserist candidate Hamdeed Sabahy, favored by a great number of youth -- especially those who participated in the 25 January Revolution, came in third."
