Recent confrontations in Egypt have prompted US intellectuals to analyse the current events. The group called on Washington to use its influence and promote democratic reform in Egypt ahead of the parliamentary and presidential elections which are scheduled in autumn and 2011.

Strong willed protestors from the Muslim Brotherhood and the April 6 Youth movement had collaborated in demonstrations calling for amendments to the constitution only to be assaulted by security apparatus ordered by the so called democratic authorities. The political environment has witnessed escalating tensions with the continued targeting of opposition. The MB, the regimes' strongest opposition has suffered the brunt of the animosity with campaigns and daily arrests in predawn raids.

The group called on Washington to pressure Egypt into complying with free, fair and transparent elections. A demand the opposition has been advocating and punished for.  The US think tanks maintained that if the United States was to advance its interests into Egypt then it had to urge its allies into running honest and civilized elections which would ultimately result in the interest of both nations. Moreover this reform would benefit both the US and Egypt since it would add to the economic growth, expansion and safety of the territory.
