Shafiq wins 100% of votes cast by Egyptians in Israel

Voter tells Ynet: 'On one hand, I don't want to see the liar Morsi turn Egypt into Afghanistan. On the other, Shafiq is indeed a good man, but he's from the old regime and behaves like Mubarak'

Ahmed Shafiq has won 100% of the votes cast in the run-off presidential election by Egyptian citizens living in Israel, Egyptian media outlets reported.

 

Mohammaed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, didn't win a single vote among voters in Israel.

A source at the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv, where the balloting was conducted, told Ynet that over the past week, some 70 Egyptian voters had tried to influence the election in their home country, about the same number who voted in the first round in May.

 

"The results showed that Shafiq was well in the lead, which makes sense for Israel," the source said, adding that he hoped the losing side would respect the democratic process and honor Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.

"Shafiq will certainly honor it, and so would Morsi, whose expressions are more moderate than the other candidates'."

 

Morsi apparently heard that he'd lost among his countrymen voting in Israel, and during a conference of the Egyptian Engineers Association he described the Israeli votes as a "plague."

 

Rafiq Rafael, a 42-year-old Copt who moved to Israel five years ago, and his friend Hisham Farid, wrote in the names of both candidates as a protest.  

 

"We don't feel good about either of the candidates who made it to the run-off," Rafael told Ynet. "On one hand, I don't want to see the liar Morsi turn Egypt into Afghanistan, but on the other hand, Shafiq is indeed a good man, but he's from the old regime and behaves like Mubarak."
