But even if merely a threat, the preparation of the measure suggested an escalation in the political battle between Egypt's new Islamist leaders and their secular opponents over an Islamist-backed draft constitution.

There are a lot votes in the hands of Americans as well. Most Americans are too stupid to oppose the evil that runs things.
Arab democracy = one man, one vote, one time.
Hope the Egyptians liked their one vote for the Muslim Brotherhood, no other votes of any consequence will ever take place under the current system.
