What is your response to this article about Egypt's threat to reconsider its peace treaty with Israel?

I have two responses to this.
First, it shows how hard democratization is. Countries like Egypt have no tradition of democracy and so people who are in power think that things like nonprofit organizations are a threat to their rule rather than an important part of society.
Second, it shows how the "Arab Spring" is potentially a mixed blessing for the US. It is good in that it brings a chance for democracy to the area. But it is dangerous because sometimes the new regimes, as here, may well act in ways (like threatening to end their peace with Israel) that may be bad for the US.
