So a tiny minority voted for this constitution and it has been signed into law.  Is it really going to be that easy for Morsi's crowd?

Maybe, Eald...but I doubt it would be THAT easy here - nothing is :w00t:  we shoot at each other for fun sometimes - you can imagine what we'd do to outsiders.

I'm a peaceful person, but if Islamic radicals ever start a foothold in the US, all bets are off.

They can kiss their tourist industry good bye.  It was gone already because of this but it won't be coming back and that was about the only thing they had going for them.  I still don't think its over though.

The UK imports its own, welcomes them with open arms, showers them with benefits, alters the law of the land to accommodate their Stone Age belief system, then recoils in mystified horror when they make death threats against us! Remember, there are no moderate Mohammadans - every one of them, man, woman and child is a potential shaheed!

Hahaha. The same is told about you by radical muslims. We should put you all ignorant radicals of all dominations into one pot and watch how you creeps kick each other buts.

Low blow, Odas.  It's common knowledge that America has a gun culture.  We do not excuse ourselves to anyone outside our borders.  It's pretty appalling you'd say that to me.

Really feel sorry for the young Egyptian people all they wanted was freedom from dictatorships and religous domination that hijack their movements.:(

Yes, unfortunately it will be that easy. But, I also heard that Morsi will be making some liberal/secular ammendments to the constitution.

When is a revolution over?

I guess it's over when the fire in the hearts of the revolutionaries dims.  I hope for better than this for the Egyptians.  This man will bring great evil on them - no better than Mubarak and quite possibly worse.
