It's imperative that the impasse between secularists and the Moslem Brotherhood be broken; this can only be done through free elections, as the people who don't want "sharia" outnumber the fundamentalists. The really bad thing about Islamic governments is that, once in power, they hold an IRON GRIP on the population (like Hitler, they ratchet things ever tighter, until disaster removes them all). The Islamist must be prevented from regaining power at all costs, other wise some lunatic in the Egyptian Air Force may fly off on his own an start dropping bombs on Damascus (or elsewhere). These extremist Moslems all speak "peace", but they have war in their hearts. (I overheard one in Jordan once say, "if anyone isn't a GOOD Moslem, well--he's going to feel it!). I hope you get it, because he had his hands on his hips and a determined look in his eye--and I don't lie. The U.S. must twist the arm of the Egyptian military and urge quick elections this fall!
