Recommended Articles about Egypt

In this blog post I try to collect links to above-average articles about the current situation in Egypt. Please, note that “recommended” does not mean that I endorse the contents of the articles. It just means that (others indicated that) this is an article worth reading. I would especially like to mention that Egyptians that I meet have a more positive attitude towards an intervention by the army than several articles below. I don’t judge, but just notice it.
