Even if Egypt's new President is the person most favored by the Egyptian people, that does not make him somebody we should 'believe.' While Iran had some issues related to its Presidential elections, the current President is liked by many Iranians. This whole prospect with Syria is also a pretty signficiant worry to me. Like Egypt, Syria has a significant Christian minority -- an Islamist party threatens millions of these people. There is no clear answer to the problems in the Middle East. We can only hope that the younger generation has been exposed to freedom via the internet -- and that these peoople will vote in large numbers for freedom.
