When  I see statements by the High Representative of the European Union and by the US State Department refusing to condemn the conduct of the Egyptian government in these past elections, I feel disappointed. The West is losing every ounce of credibility when it comes to convincing people here that it is serious about their basic values: democracy, freedom, justice, rule of law. That fuels extremism. The West doesn’t realize that stability is not based on short-sighted security measures-stability will only come when people are empowered, when people are able to participate.
