Ahmed al-Assy, an Egyptian-American living in Egypt and a participant in the Tahrir Square protests, discusses the solid turnout for Egypt’s constitutional referendum vote; their jumbled mess of a legal system, made from a hodgepodge of colonial remnants mixed with Sharia; misinformation and voter confusion about the actual issues on the ballot; replacing the old oppressive security state with a new one; and the latest Gaza excursion, where Ahmed and others will take building materials and raw goods to break the siege through Egypt’s border.
