No alternative presidential candidate in Egypt

The Western media have been discussing the failure of Egyptian presidential elections, in which the voters face a choice between pro-Mubarak and pro-Islamist candidates. Their message is that if the centrist candidates had joined forces and fielded a single candidate, he would have beaten the current two leaders. In fact, that choice was no better.

The only two other candidates who got a meaningful share of votes are Fotouh, a hard-core terrorist supporter and Sabahi, a hard-core Nasserite. Even Amr Moussa, who is supported by 11% of the electorate, is well known for his extremist pan-Arabic and anti-Israeli views.
