Egyptisk demokrati på G

Två saker:

1) Islamsk domare skall rita upp den nya konstitutionen (ok…), som skall designa det för det Muslimska Brödraskapet (eller !!!??! Hmmm…) som dessutom visar sig vara kraftigt underrepresenterad av kristna (ok!) och helt utan kvinnlig representant (Väntar fortfarande på Mona Sahlins högljudda klagorop!!!).

(Telegraph)Egypt’s new ruling military council has appointed an Islamist judge to head the committee drawing up a new constitution, angering some of those who argued last week’s revolution would deliver the country to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Tarek al-Bishry, the chairman of the constitutional panel, is a respected judge who criticised former president Hosni Mubarak and is regarded as moderate in his views. But he has been associated with Al-Wasat, an offshoot of the Brotherhood.

He has selected a committee made up mainly of judges and politicians, including a judge who is a Coptic Christian, but also a former Muslim Brotherhood MP. There are no women.

Wael Abbas, the best-known human rights blogger in Egypt, who was sentenced to prison by the Mubarak regime last year, said it was a “worrying” choice.

“There is no such thing as a moderate Islamist,” he said. “We want a secular state that respects all religions and which belongs to all religions.”

2) Dessutom har de unga fredsdemonstranterna, den 6:e aprilrörelsen,  höjt sin röst

April 6 Youth Movement "Day of Anger" promotion

De verkar mest vara intresserade av:

a) Platta till Israel
b) Få ställa krav och peta i den demokratiska demokratin (!!!)
c) Ha ett teknokratisk samhälle…

 A coordinator of Egypt’s April 6 Youth Movement told USA Today on Wednesday that if the group’s demands “are not met, we’ll be on the street again.”

Among the group’s demands — one that breaks with the stated policy of the military government — was the halting of natural gas shipments to Israel, citing what it called Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians, according to the report.

The youth movement, along with 10 other democracy activist groups, was scheduled to meet with Egypt’s ruling Armed Forces Supreme Council later in the day, USA Today reported.

Tarek el-Khouly said that his group met with the military earlier in the week but did not make any demands at that time, according to the report. Because it has since become disillusioned with the pace of change taking place in Egypt, Khouly said, they will now make formal demands in the meeting.

Speaking of the military commanders running Egypt’s temporary government, he said: “At the end of the day, they’re [deposed Egyptian president Hosni] Mubarak’s appointees and loyal to him. The proof is he’s still in Sharm e-Sheikh under their protection.” Previewing one of April 6’s demands, he added, “We want him held accountable,” USA Today reported.

Among its other demands, Khouly said that a transitional and technocratic civilian government must be immediately appointed, and restrictions on freedom of speech, freedom of association and forming political parties be lifted without delay, according to the report.
