The 10 Plagues

There's a classic question regarding the 10 plagues. HaShem (G-d) promised Avrohom (Abraham) that a nation - Egypt - would enslave the children of Israel. This seems to imply that the Egyptains had no freewill or choice as to whether to enslave us, they HAD to enslave us.  So how could HaShem punish them with the 10 plagues if they had no choice to begin with? 

Rambam (Maimonidies) answers that though the nation as a whole were bound by HaShem's promise to Avrohom, each individual Egyptian had the choice whether to be a part of the enslaving or not.

The Raavid gives two alternative answers: 

1) the Egyptians deserved the punishments for the other acts they had committed anyway. 

2) HaShem only promised that the Egyptians would enslave us; they went further though and gave us back-breaking tortuous slavery which was over and above what they could have got away with.
