    Because democracy, or should I say indirect democracy, i.e. our constitutional republic, .. has worked relatively well for us, some make the mistake that to assume that democracy is well suited for all societies. It should be remembered that in a democracy the people are the ultimate rulers of a nation, and that not all societies have people that are up to this task.

    The fact that the military overthrew a democratically elected leader is not necessarily wrong. People have inalienable rights. In Egypt, Christian churches were being destroyed with impunity. Christians were being crusified. The Moslem brotherhood had established a Moslem constitution that all of Egypts people were subject to.

    There women in Egypt that don't want to be forced to wear the Moslem head covering. They want their daughters to have freedom to be in public without having to be accompanied by a male relative. They want their daughters to have the opportunity to get an education just as their sons do. In short they don't want to be forced to live by Moslem religious restrictions.
