"Egypt has struggled for decades to find a formula that balances the role of Islam with the rights of its Christian minority and a strong secular current. As details of a proposed new constitution emerge, it is far from certain that this round of the process will be any more successful than the others."

"If we really work on women's rights and children's rights and press rights, our sector of society civil Egypt will be happy. To reach consensus is another matter ... I don't think [the Muslim Brotherhood] will accept it."

Maybe they should borrow our Constitution to jump-start the process.
