Greensboro, NC -- An Assistant Professor at High Point University says she is hopeful but cautious when it comes to Egypt's newly elected president.
Nahed Eltantawy says President Mohamed Morsi will have to prove to the Egyptian people that he will be fair to everyone and not alienate Israel, women or Christians, despite the fact that he ran as a candidate for the Moslem Brotherhood.
Eltantawy told News 2 she didn't vote for Morsi or Hosni Mubarak's former general. She says that Morsi will now have to win over Egyptians that didn't vote for him, so the country can move forward.
She admits the military offers a challenge to any president, because they have given themselves more power under a new constitution. But she says Egyptians will once again take to the streets before allowing their country to turn into another Iran.
