I wrote about Farouk El-Baz’s plan to fix Egypt in The Boston Globe.
I debated an Egyptian cleric on Salafi TV: a report for The Atlantic.

I visited Nag Hammadi for the IHT and found an Egyptian Wild West.

CAIRO — It has been nearly three months since the last really big, unmanageable crowd converged on Tahrir Square and threatened to stay until its demands were met. On the eve of Ramadan, in early August, the Egyptian military smacked and clubbed that group — a broad but woefully inarticulate coalition opposing the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces’ hold on power — out of the square. And much to the protesters’ horror, the majority of Egyptians seemed fairly satisfied with the pushback, preferring a return to order even if it came with a military policeman’s truncheon.
