Haggag vs. Eissa in ARB

This month's issue of the Arab Reform Bulletin pits two Egyptians against one another over the constitutional amendments. Since the two are Karim Haggag, the director of the Egyptian press office in Washington and former aide to Gamal Mubarak who operated out of the presidency, and firebrand journalist Ibrahim Eissa, there is really almost no debate to be had. Two worlds, hermetically sealed from one another, headed for collision?

Also, don't miss my friend Omayma Abdel Latif's report on Syria's parliamentary elections.
