4. That may be true, but tell that to the Supreme Ct with all its 5-4s, and the 2000 election came

down to a few hundred votes in FL. Sometimes, a majority vote is a bad thing, but we don't just ignore it when it doesn't suit us.

Frankly, the problem is that Egypt doesn't have a long-established Bill of Rights based Constitution for reference and stability. It's not goin to become a secular, rights-based American clone overnight, mo matter how much we may want that.
