A Democratic Egypt?

...the Sarando episode and other land conflicts mushrooming in the fertile Nile Delta show that change at the top will be irrelevant to real freedom if it is not joined by the institutional development that protects rights and provides clear, peaceful means to settle grievances.

In the decades since Egypt's independence, the grievances of the working poor have occasionally flared but rarely coalesced into a broader movement, making it easier for the government to isolate democracy activists in the capital.

But if these groups begin to back the movement for change, President Mubarak's regime could face trouble.

It appears Mawar has stepped in since the 1990's and helped himself to other's land. He then started to charge them rent. What they need are documents, deeds, records, etc. They need a legal system to resolve these issues.

This is the wind that fans the flames of civil unrest. Civil unrest leads to a different form of government, or at least a change in how the government is run. To be honest, I do not know enough about the ME to suggest a plan of action other than seek the truth. If these are mounting problem, there are bound to more that are unresolved.

All Egyptians should understand and receive their basic human rights. These are people, and everyone one of them is precious in God's sight. They all have worth. Just like you and me. Do you deny this? Then you deny your own freedom and are a slave to hypocracy. Read the rest here.
