The Egyptian Sphinx
Leslie Sacks warns a democratic election in Egypt today would result in a Muslim Brotherhood anti-Israel and anti-American government in which we can surmise from MB literature and speeches would certainly be a detriment to National Security and I might add to any Middle East fragile stability due to a huge sway in that region’s balance of power. Sacks correctly writes that the best case scenario is for the Egyptian Military to guarantee the current Constitution while there is a transition then present a reformed Constitution that provides better civil rights for Egyptians. Of course “better civil rights” through a Muslim filter is not the same as Western civil rights. I have no doubt a reformed Constitution even though secular will be based on a framework of Sharia Law tempering some of the cruel of Sharia.
