– Jack Shenker (Newstatesman) | Why does the western media ignore Egyptian dissent? | Here’s a thought experiment: pick a random Middle Eastern country led by an unpopular autocrat whose legitimacy is being challenged by a growing wave of public dissent.

– Osama Diab (The Chronikler) | Should America fear a democratic Egypt? | A senior Muslim Brotherhood leader Abdel Moniem Aboul Fotouh, who is known for his moderation, recently said that the party is not as popular as people think.

A low key man with an awkward demeanor, Badie’s election is designed to maintain the status quo. [Qui si scriveva più o meno la stessa cosa una settimana fa]
