Why Europe is shy to cheer for the Egyptians

Les Echos:
“Despite their [the U.S. and European] differences, they agreed on one point: it is better to have a stable authoritarian regime than a democratic government led by Islamists.”

And the Turkish media:

“Israel and the United States…are the two most concerned countries in terms of what is happening in Egypt right now.They have never supported democracy in the region because they have been afraid that if they did, it might inadvertently leave them in the role of acting as a midwife for an Islamist victory.”
