This is the first time I have invited a guest to contribute to this blog. As our elected representative to the United States Congress I welcome Rep. Wilson to express his views on this non-partisan issue. We should know how our congressman thinks at this critical time for Israel, Egypt and the Middle East. I thank him for taking the time to contribute to this blog. I would welcome your viewpoint on his remarks.

Below is the excerpt the Congressman would like to submit for your blog regarding the situation in Egypt. Please let me know if our office can help you in any other way. Also, I have attached a high resolution photo from your recent trip to Washington.
“As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I am deeply concerned with the recent events surrounding the current administration in Egypt. Mr. Mubarak’s announcement to not seek re-election was the first step in moving toward a democratically elected government.
Egypt’s current administration should immediately take steps to schedule an open and free election. This political reform must happen without further delay so as to minimize the current violence and on-going chaos engulfing the country.
Leaders of the opposition movement must not embrace extremist elements who are merely attempting to gain power as a means to damage Egypt’s relationship with countries like the United States and Israel. Mr. Mubarak’s administration should see to it that the will of the people is satisfied sooner rather than later.”
