Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Eric Trager (Washington Institute for Near East Policy)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Eric discuss the surprising results of Egypt’s recent elections. Eric is skeptical that Islamist parties offer a way forward for Egyptian democracy. Matt asks whether the Muslim Brotherhood is a typical religious right party, and Eric argues that they’re something far more dangerous. Matt pushes back, and Eric suggests that Egypt’s future will be one of perpetual instability between the Brotherhood and the military. The two discuss the options facing US foreign policymakers regarding Egypt going forward. Finally, they debate whether it’s possible to regard the new Egypt as a true democracy.
