US-Egyptian Relations- Post Ayman Noor Release
There has been much speculation about how United States policy towards Egypt will change given the surprise release of former Presidential candidate Ayman Noor. Some analysts from the Eurasia Group argue that, “…Mubarak wants Obama to recognize that he will not play the role of America’s obedient servant. When Washington applies pressure, Egypt can and will say no. Mubarak is 80 years old. He has held power for nearly three decades, and he wants some respect. The release comes on Mubar

There has been much speculation about how United States policy towards Egypt will change given the surprise release of former Presidential candidate Ayman Noor. Some analysts from the Eurasia Group argue that, “…Mubarak wants Obama to recognize that he will not play the role of America’s obedient servant. When Washington applies pressure, Egypt can and will say no. Mubarak is 80 years old. He has held power for nearly three decades, and he wants some respect. The release comes on Mubarak’s timetable, not Washington’s.” Moreover, they also believe, “The release of Nour also reveals that at least one Arab autocrat is no longer worried about the post-9/11 drive for democratization in the Middle East.”

Other experts such as Anthony Zeitouni are however cautiously optimistic that, “…Obama will be able to succeed where Bush failed in Egypt. I urge Obama to adopt a wise and intelligent policy of democratization in the Middle East.”
