    They should look over the border to Israel. Hundreds of Palestian political prisoners using nonviolence are put under administrative detention for opposing the Israeli occupation. At least those knuckle heads in Egypt go through the trouble of coming up with some trumped up charge. And he was at least released on bail. More than I can say for those political prisoners in Israel. By the way, Egypt was not really known for being a Democracy, unlike the so called Israeli democracy that the US blindly supports. US Dept. should worry about its closest ally it just finish kissing its ass when Obama visited. Rectify the injustice in Israel, and you will see a positive domino effect in the region. It won't fix everything, but definately a step in the right direction.
