The Clarity of Choices Before Us In Egypt

I suggest you spend more time looking at news sources such as http://www­.democracy­ and http://eng­lish.aljaz­ rather than US MSM such as CNN. Listen to the actual people who have made this happen. Democracy Now has been especially good at interviewi­ng people in Liberation Square and in posting some of the viral videos that got this started. They all talk about freedom, love of their country, and honor not about Islam. And women have played a major role in the uprising equal with men and not wearing burqhas.

It is sad that many Americans can only view this as raising our fears and uncertaint­ies rather than feel solidarity with the brave Egyptian people. Its a sign of how much many of us have lost the idealism that used to make this country great.
