The Israeli killing of 5 Egyptian soldiers in Egyptian territory has enraged the Egyptian public, while the government tried to contain the crisis. What is your view?
Egypt should immediately downgrade diplomatic relations with Israel, throw out the Israeli ambassador and recall the Egyptian ambassador from Tel Aviv, demand restitution for the victims, halt gas exports to Israel and open the Rafah border with Gaza
Israel’s expression of sorrow is sufficient, especially when accompanied by a joint investigation into the incident. We should maintain good ties with Israel.
Israel was pursuing terrorists in accordance with the right of hot pursuit, and the killing of the Egyptian soldiers was an unintentional error. Egypt should cooperate with Israel in hunting down terrorists.
Israel’s criminal killing of Egyptian soldiers should not go unpunished. It absolves Egypt of the peace treaty, which Egypt should unilaterally declare null and void.
I don’t have a position on the matter.

It took enormous and sustained popular pressure to bring Mubarak to public trial. What are your feelings on where the trial might be heading?
It’s all theater; the officers are bowing and saluting the prisoners, the prosecution has deliberately bungled the case, and Mubarak will be acquitted.  (25.95 %)
 
178 votes
It is a historic trial, the first time in modern Arab history that people bring their ruler to account for his crimes. Mubarak is bound to be convicted.  (30.76 %)
 
211 votes
Mubarak has done great things for Egypt; it is a great shame that he and his sons should be humiliated in this fashion. This trial should be disbanded with due apologies to the Mubaraks.  (13.41 %)
 
92 votes
There are many loopholes in the case; the security bodies are for the defendants, but Mubarak, his sons and cronies will be convicted for their crimes.  (18.95 %)

The ruling Military Council and Prime Minister Essam Sharaf have made substantial concessions to the demands of the second wave of the Egyptian revolution. What is your position?
The administration has done more than enough to meet the demands of the revolution. Sit-ins and protest actions should end and the new government given a chance to move on with the transition.  (21.04 %)
 
150 votes
Important concessions have been made, but they are insufficient. Sit-ins and protest action should go on until all basic demands are met, and to ensure promises are fulfilled.  (27.63 %)
 
197 votes
It is all window-dressing; the Egyptian revolution has been betrayed, and protest action should continue until the military council is removed from power.  (44.32 %)

An open-ended sit-in in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and other Egyptian cities began on Friday July 8. The protesters say the sit-in will go on until a number of basic demands of the revolution are met. Where do you stand?

A nation-wide protest has been called for 8 July to press for the speedy prosecution of Mubarak and his cronies, as well as of all police officers involved in the torture and killing of citizens. Where do you stand?
Enough protests! We want stability and security. Prosecuting police officers would bring even more harm to the precarious security situation.  (22.25 %)

Though the Egyptian revolution emphasised equality and fraternity of Egypt’s Muslims and Christians, mob attacks against Coptic citizens and their houses of worship have become a frequent occurrence in post-revolution Egypt. What is your opinion?
The attacks are instigated and executed by local counter-revolutionary forces, including Muslim fanatics, Mubarak regime diehards and rogue security forces, and are backed and funded by regressive Gulf States.  (33.03 %)
 
143 votes
The attacks are the expression of deep-seated sectarian tensions, and their greater frequency is a result of the security vacuum created by the revolution, and have nothing to do with counter-revolutionary conspiracies.  (35.57 %)

Counter-revolutionary forces and regional powers are using deep-seated sectarian tensions to undermine the Egyptian revolution.  (21.25 %)

Post-revolution Egypt is charting a new policy towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Cairo has succeeded in mediating a Palestinian reconciliation, is removing the blockade of Gaza, and is tougher on the Israeli occupation. What is your opinion?

Egypt's prime minister is on a tour of Arab Gulf states. Gulf capitals are reportedly unhappy about Cairo's intention to normalise relations with Iran, and object to the prosecution of Mubarak. What is your position?
Egypt should take into consideration the concerns of the Gulf States, since we are in dire need of their financial assistance.  (11.3 %)
 
27 votes
Egypt should reject any and all attempts by these states to influence its regional, international or domestic policies through offering or withholding financial assistance.  (28.03 %)

Egypt's ousted president Hosni Mubarak stands accused of both corruption and crimes against humanity. What is your position?
These accusations are untrue, and we should express our gratitude to the former president and ask his forgiveness for the revolt against him.  (5.58 %)

He should be arrested and brought back to Cairo to stand trial both for corruption and crimes against humanity  (66.74 %)
