A question to Dr. AMR HAMZAWY
Dear Dr Amr, Upon reading your article in ALWATAN, on the current disputes over formulating the new constitution of Egypt, I was expecting, as you should have for sure,a hall mark angery response, condemning you of calling on the Foreign non friendly poweres to intervene in Egypt's internal affairs, a response which will include everyone who has an opposition view to your firm stance on the democratic,civic and progressive future Egypt. So, my question is: How you will refute such accusation, which already had just started a build up today.
