    Re: Egypt's Mubarak resigns as leader

    Do you mean the Mubarak supporters that were defeated by the will of the Egyptian people?
    The Mubarak supporters are Egyptian people...

    You are playing with semantics. We were discussing the Egyptian people as a political force. The Mubarak supporters were not part of the political force of the Egyptian people in their revolution.

    That's like saying that the, "Russian people", were a political force during the Bolshevik revolution.

However, one cannot automatically assume that such support grants license to extremism. In the very same poll, 61% of Egyptians expressed that they were somewhat or very concerned about Islamic extremism in Egypt and 70% felt the same about about Islamic extremism worldwide.
