Islamist grip on Egypt may tighten: Muslim Brotherhood eyes presidency

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East War and Egypt’s part in it

It would appear that Egypt is getting very close to the day when a fierce king will rule over the Egyptians. We believe this king will be the King of the South that the prophet Daniel wrote of in chapter 11 of his book.

Already things are lining up to make Egypt just another Islamic state not unlike Iran, which will have as its leader an Islamic President who will institute Sharia law in the new Islamic government of Egypt. Check out the video below which features an Egyptian cleric calling for Sharia law which would see enemies of Islam either killed or maimed, (feet and hands cut off).  What a nice guy.  And this is what President Obama was so thrilled about for Egypt when Hosni Mubarak was toppled?

I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty. Isaiah 19:4 NIV

From the articles:
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, an influential group holding half of the seats in the new parliament, may field a candidate for the May presidential election. The move would break an earlier promise not to seek presidential power. ­The movement said it would not contend for Egypt’s highest office as part of power-sharing agreements among the country’s leading powers. It was meant to alleviate fears among domestic liberals and the military, as well as Western allies, that the country would fall too much under Islamist control. The situation may change now, Mahmoud Hussein, the Brotherhood's general secretary told AP, as the group is “forced to consider the option of fielding a candidate from its own ranks.” The Muslim Brotherhood wants to ensure that the future president is not openly hostile to the parliament they control.
The Islamists have won a clear majority on the panel to draw up the country’s new constitution after the liberal bloc staged a walk-out from the vote on Saturday, calling it a “farce.”  Islamists hold a majority among both parliamentary and civil panel members. Thirty-nine of the 50 lawmakers chosen for the 100-member constituent assembly are Islamists, AFP reports. The liberal Egyptian bloc, which consists of three parties, denounced the vote. "All our MPs withdrew," said Naguib Sawiris, founder of the liberal Free Egyptians Party, “It's ridiculous: a constitution being written by one force and one force alone. We tried our best but there was no use.”
