Reader comment on item: Transition in Egypt

Submitted by Howard Brown (United States), Feb 24, 2011 at 16:15

Dr. Pipes,

Isn't your optimism about the conduct of the Egyptian revolt tempered by the reported sexual assault of Lora Logan, also reportedly accompanied by anti-Semitic shouts?

Regarding the formation of a new government, the Muslim Brotherhood seems to be taking on the role of most vocal opposition. What do you make of that? And aren't you concerned that, as reported, Abdel Nour has a minister's portfolio?

Thanks for a good interview.

I suspect this foul deed was carried out by security agents.
