    Egypt is a different story. The Muslim Brotherhood is very strong in Egypt, and will likely take over if Mubarak is overthrown. It looks like the Tunisian people are smarter. Baby steps, but some progress. As for Palestine, Mr. Tinmore, we have nothing to talk about there. If you support those Hamas Islamic thugs in Gaza, just because they won an election, then we're on completely different sides. Hitler also won an election.

    Those über-democrats don't see democracy as something universal, they only support democracy and human-rights issues in other countries if it fits their shoe.
    If it doesn't, they will support dictators.
    The privileges they have in their own system, which they see as fundamental right, they don't see worthy for those people leaving in the countries where they have installed dictators (the shoe thing).

    Isn't it illegal to interfere in the internal affairs of others?

    America sends money to Egypt. They can send money to whomever they want, there are no American troops there. As for Israel and/or Palestine, the Palestinians have asked America to twist Israel's arm as well. Let's forget what happened between 1948-1993. If the Palestinians hadn't acted in such a f---ed up way since Oslo, they'd probably be "free" in the West Bank by now.

    Oslo was the outsourcing of the occupation to the PLO. That did cause some problems.

    Now the occupation is outsourced to ex president Abbas and the PA.
