enlightened literate society
2. tribalism wins
zichron   (12.04.11)
this is tribalism and the anti western decadence revulsuion. just keep away from the jewish sanctuary in eretz yisroel.the jews remember the muslim brotherhood and the arab revolt which blocked jewish escape from nazi occupied europe and genocide and full payback time is close unless islam repents and allows the jews their small parcel of land and security.
3. back to the stone age
real vision ,   usa   (12.04.11)

4. Very Good
Abdel Karim Salim ,   Jerusalem   (12.04.11)
This is a very good analytical article about Egypt's parliamentary elections . I like it .
5. Democracy means dictatorship of majority in Egypy and in...
Gal   (12.04.11)
...many other countries, including Israel. In countries like Egypt the majority is illiterate and religious because they breed more. Accordingly, they take over the vote power in elections. In Israel, majority is literate and even well-educated, but the religious population growth is changing the entire country. Ashkenazim, educated, secular groups are becoming smaller and smaller due to their low birth rates and emigration. In a few decades Israel will turn into a proper Middle eastern country with religious, not well-educated, and aggressive population.
6. #5
Henry from New York ,   USA   (12.04.11)
Usually the high birth rate is a result of being uneducated religious people, not the cause. They have always had the same birth rate though. It's only that the death rate is lower now thanks to modern medicine. Overall assessment of the situation. Fun pair of choices, either the military openly in control or the Muslim Brotherhood's radical coalition. Either way the Egyptian people are in for a very dark future indeed.
7. Let us drive lessons:Chaos cannot be controlled
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (12.05.11)
CIA and US foreign policy makers think they can control chaos just like in their models of computer iterations, Arab spring initiated for the good of Israel by USA now will be worst problem for Israel and USA, No, Chaos cannot be controlled, you cannot draw a line where the revolutions shall stop when you once trigger..
8. Business upportunity
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (12.05.11)
It looks like the sales of burkas is going to be great. I would start making more fabric if I was a manufacturer there. These idiots are going backwards face down at a great speed.
9. No Worse Than US
emanon ,   USA   (12.05.11)
Regardless of which party wins in 2012, I am afraid as a Jew. Many in the Conservative Wrong are openly calling for the US to support "Christian Values". Those on the other side of the aisle want to show we are friends to "moderate muslims" and do not see there is not such thing. Between the two, there are many factions that will still make it very unpopular to be Jew. I have yet to see a candidate I can back 100%. At least in Egypt, the MB is not pretending to be anything other than what they are: another arm of the united front to wipe out Israel.
10. Egypt wants another dictatorship.
