Rädslan för demokrati…

I israel är man jätte entusiastisk över ett demokratiskt Egypten

Barak Obamas stundande huvudvärk

For Egyptians, who hunger for freedom and better governance, democracy will probably secure a brighter future. For America, Egyptian democracy, however welcome in principle, will significantly narrow the political space in which U.S. administrations operate in the region. On any number of fronts, a more representative Egypt will be far less forgiving and supportive of Washington. On U.S. efforts to contain Iran, on the Middle East peace process, on the battle against terrorism and Islamic radicalism – especially if Egypt’s own Islamists are part of the new governing structure – there is a great deal of uncertainty about how much cooperation we can expect.”
