Commmonweal currently has interesting pieces on events in Egypt here and here. A stable Egypt has contributed to peace in the region since the Camp David Accords, but our economic and strategic support of the regime has undoubtedly been in tension with our commitments to democracy and human rights. As someone who studies the region, I believe that this is a complicated situation that belies simplistic solutions. Let us pray for leaders in the U.S. and Egypt and most importantly for peace, justice, security and the defense of human dignity in Egypt.
