2. They're doomed!!!!!!!
Mark ,   London, UK   (11.10.12)
In Egypt they have had many years to come up with a political system and they have never succeeded. They are very unlikely to succceed with the present arrangements. No doubt it will be someone else's fault. Who would want to invest in this sort of state? What about civic society?
3. The west often think all islamists are male but they are
EU   (11.10.12)
mostly backed by their women, there are many radical muslim women outa there, no radical ideology ever survived in history without being backed by the female!
4. israel should elect a civilian priminister
m.masry ,   cairo,egypt   (11.11.12)
as long as your priministers is a military Israelians will not cure of nervous and excessive worry and mistrust crisis because these people are manipulating you.
5. What's left of EGYPT? They all look SAUDI to me.

6. Women and religion
Bertram ,   London, UK   (11.11.12)
Let us leave aside, for the moment, the specific dangers of Islamism for Egypt as a whole as well as its neighbours. Am I wrong in thinking that there are similarities here with the position in orthodox Judaism? I believe that here there are also women who are trying to improve their status but not at the expense of changing its traditional and fundamentalist aspects of the religion. In other words, the glass ceiling will always exist while women's priorities are deemed to be domestic ones. It is interesting that such women appear to accept unquestioningly a patriarchal view of the world.
7. LOL No women allowed.
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (11.14.12)
Muslims are notoriously anti female. Watch these women disappear from political sight.
8. 6 out 100?
Lucas J.   (11.24.12)
wow, 6 out of 100 are women- how can we tell? They are all wearing black rags? Who would vote for someone whose face you can't see? Only an idiot- it is bad enough with a face, without it- forget it.
9. #4 civilian
Mimi   (11.24.12)
point take: #4 ,Egypt should vote for a secular man, not a religious fanatic. Don't know what the 'revolution' was for- you are now worse off than before. Israel has at least a working parliament- you guys don't, you have Pharao Mursi instead.
