Egypt has a Chance! Let's hope so!

Reader comment on item: Egypt's Chance

The non-bright side, which is the most likely, is that the country will turn to the Islam to solve its problem and most of us know what chaos Islam could have on any society.

Muslim Brotherhood and other fanatics have had an influence on the Egyptian's people with their popular slogan "Islam is the solution".
