Your are being illusioned by their internal differences hence you modified them as moderate/liberals/pro-west, pro-mubarak, islamist etc. Unless the west are deceiving themselves, how would they ever expect the pro-Mubarak in Egypt or pro-Sha in Iran to serve their interest while the rest knows that who ever serves western interest will be doomed by betrayal, - they are only taking you for a ride. After centuries of strife between the two cultures, the Middle Eastern have developed ways to conveniently frustrate western efforts. Things are not what they seem in the Middle East. The development in Egypt is a collective effort to undermine democracy.

Like the black hole to the scientist so is the Middle East is becoming to what I termed the new generation western politicians/analyst and incidences in Egypt could not squarely be blamed on Obama/Clinton policy.

Despite their differences, political, sectarian, religious (Muslim vs Christians) to the extent of going to civil war yet a times they are united against one thing or another.

There is need for the western new generation politicians/analyst to look back just some few decades and re-study colonial approach in the predominant Arab speaking/Islamic countries.

Mr. Pipes I quote for you from antiquity the Instruction of Svetaketu first Khanda 4, 5 and 6.

4. By one piece of Clay everything made of clay may be known – the modification is merely verbal distinction, a name, the reality is just a Clay.

5. By one Copper ornament, everything made of Copper may be known – the modification is merely verbal distinction, a name, the reality is just copper.

6. By Nails-Scissors everything made of iron may be known – the modification is merely verbal distinction, a name, the reality is just iron.

Thanks.
