    With luck, the modern, secular people of Egypt will keep control away from the backwards religious people. The radical Islamist factions aren't the majority and don't speak for most of the people. Egypt is going through the struggles that it must in order to come out a modern nation. Shaking off the shackles of crazy religious leaders is part of the process, and a part that Egypt seems intent on doing. Go Egypt!

    It seems the voice for inclusion and moderation has at last pulled ahead. I got to say with as much hope as I can muster, that they get it right the second time round.
    Moreover, there has to be 'egg' on the faces of a few here at DP, for their way off the mark predictions...

    Egypt just like America has a lot of uninformed voters.

    Obama is at fault for anything bad... AIDS, world hunger, random asteroid heading our way that is going to kill us, and when the aliens finally come and enslave us, it will be his fault also.

    Let's hope. Morsi appears to have won the prior election fair and square but there's more to democracy than elections and that may have been an artifact of the Mubarak days, when it was a highly organized opposition. Egypt didn't have the institutional framework and checks and balances to keep the Brotherhood from acting like petty dictators. But at least they proved themselves inept at fixing economic problems (probably because they fixated on religious ones), so hopefully they will lose the next election fair and square.

    It only counts as a democratic election if a guy we like wins.

    Well, it was a pretty undemocratic constitution that Morsi and the Brotherhood rammed through apparently to protect their interests, not those of minorities or the civil rights of others.

    This appears to be a big push back against the more fundamental forces in the region.
