Contrary to what the Muslim Brotherhood-appeasing-and-embracing Obama administration expected (and more or less promised), the "Arab Spring" has not flowered into a Western-style democracy and pluralism, but to the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood and other pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists (Hat tip - Robert Spencer):

Islamist parties won more than 80 percent of seats in Egypt's upper house of parliament, the country's election board announced Sunday.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party took 58 percent of the seats in contention, while the harder-line Salafist Al-Nour party came in second with a quarter of all seats. The nationalist Wafd party came in third with just 7 percent of the vote...

Islamists also dominated voting for the lower house of parliament, with the Brotherhood taking 38 percent and Al-Nour 27 percent.
