Sir-- Tens of thousands of Palestinian families have one or more family members in Israeli indefinite detention without charges. Indefinite detention without due process is an in-your-face violation of basic and universal human rights, and one that the Israeli government uses against Palestinians with reckless abandon.
Sir-- I find it encouraging seeing open debates leading up to the first free election for this new democracy. Hopefully this will make real debate, not violence, more popular. This is what we fought for when we were out on the streets, the right to see for ourselves the right leader to lead us and to make our own choice.
Sir-- Because they are not serious about peace with their neighbours, or the return of Palestinian land and their lack of vision about how they are perceived by the rest of world, Israelis are creating their own capsule, a prison in isolation from the rest of the world. They will build walls all around them for protection. You would think if Israelis have suffered in the past, they would become better people, more understanding, more compassionate, but they are just the opposite. Palestinians, on the other hand, have learnt the use of civil disobedience instead of violence.
What Egypt needs
Sir-- Both candidates are not the perfect representatives of the revolution. Moussa is reliable but a bit away from what the young people want. In the debate he avoided attacking the military. He is very much into the reality of the political power game. His challenger Abul- Fotouh is not that experienced but his advantage is that he is a recognised opponent of the military.
Actually Egypt needs a man who gives the people a new vision. How should Egypt be a democracy without being Westernised? And how should Egypt play its role in the Arab world and at the same time improve relations with Israel?
Sir-- The first debate and a real good chance the last. As soon as a Muslim conservative wins the election, this brief glimpse of "freedom" will quickly be squashed. Hope I'm wrong but history says otherwise.
Sir-- I hope you protesters aren't liberal seculars. If you take down the military right now you might find yourselves in a very sorry situation. Theocracies are never pretty.
