Elections in Egypt

Fox News just reported that the Obama administration is pushing hard for elections in Egypt.

Sounds good, but what if the Egyptians vote for a government that hates America and wants to destroy the Jews in Israel? What if they--like the people of Gaza--elect a terrorist organization to run their government? What if they--like the people of Iraq--elect a government that tolerates the widespread persecution of non-Muslims?

I think our government should spend a lot more effort pushing for basic human rights like freedom of speech and freedom of religion, and stop being so naive in thinking that democracy is the solution to world problems.
