The ups and downs of our civil current
Despite the appearance of an Islamist landslide post-25 January, Egypt's civil and moderate culture remains strong, writes Ammar Ali Hassan
Obama's second term
While he has not fulfilled all his promises, Obama is likely to remain in power for four more years, writes Abdel-Moneim Said
What future for Egypt's wealth?
US support for the Muslim Brotherhood appears to have been cemented on its leanings towards the interests of private capital. This will not serve millions of poor Egyptians, writes Ayman El-Amir
The awareness factor
The non-materialisation of billions of dollars of investment promised by the Muslim Brotherhood is being blamed on a lack of awareness of the Egyptian people. Is it fair, asks Emad Gad
Where is the evidence?
While the Muslim Brotherhood claims to have renounced violence, can we be sure that the peaceful trend in the movement will always outweigh its fanatical other, asks Tarek Heggy
The worst apartheid in modern history
Palestinians not only endure a crushing occupation; Israel's apartheid system makes them pay for it as well, writes Mustafa Barghouthi
In focus: Facts of friendship
As long as Arab regimes guarantee US interests in the region, Washington supports them. This rule of thumb appears to be holding for Islamist regimes too, writes Galal Nassar
