Two Views on Gamal Mubarak

I'm still busy, so a couple of reading assignments for you: a couple of days ago Tarek Masoud posted a piece on the Foreign Policy Middle East Channel entitled "Is Gamal Mubarak the best Hope for Egyptian Democracy?" (Before you make the jokes, read his argument. I don't buy it, but it's not an outrageous position to take.) Now Issandr El Amrani in Al-Masry al-Youm has responded with "The Case Against the Case for Gamal Mubarak," which takes on the argument directly.
