As I responded to other user here is how I look at this. Iranian people are the most non-muslim people on earth, certainly compare to the Arab nations. If we end up getting the Aytollahs post our 1979 revolution, I can't imagine what a nightmare is awaiting for Egypt. Do not get me wrong. I am not justifying Mubarak. I am just sharing experience.

The organically grown Egyptian opposition consists of a wide range of people - religious, secular, young, old. Perhaps you ought not to be so frightened of the concept of religious parties like the Muslim Brotherhood playing a role in regional politics. They have shown themselves to be pragmatic and reform minded, and vastly more democratic than our regional allies, and will anyway be unable to enforce religious law when the constitution demands a secular state. Islamic groups are our "bogeymen" in the region. It is not our business to intervene. A great report on the make-up of Islamist (more)
