Egypt protests: Three reported dead in ‘day of revolt’
And Egypt’s Foreign Minister said “It won’t happen here..”
It’s been just two days since the people of Tunis forced a heathen-dictator out and became free. This is the first dictatorship in the Middle East that has evaporated. This is the first chance ever for a real and first democracy to descend upon the Middle East and North Africa.
Every Arab leader – and the Israeli War Criminal Netanyahu – has watched Tunisia‘s revolt in fear while citizens across the Arab world watch in solidarity, elated at that rarity: open revolution.
Egypt, Jordan, Algeria and Morocco are seen as the other countries most likely to face serious popular unrest over unemployment, corruption and hopelessness, though social, political and economic conditions vary considerably between them. [Guardian]
Dictators – and frankly morons – like Gaddafi of Libya, condemned the Tunisian uprising; he had to open his mouth making such ridiculous comments that “Tunisians rushed into this.. and that the deposed dictator was “the best Tunisian to have ever ruled Tunisia..”[source]
Today – January 16, 2011, Libyans are about to do the same – and hopefully, topple this old senile and arrogant so-called leader as they pretty much make the same demands.
Thousands of Jordanians have taken to the streets. While we still hope to see them topple their corrupt dictator-King, they have demanded an end to corruption and demonstrated in front of the Jordanian Parliament and shouting anti-government slogans. It’s a start. (source Aljazeera)
Egypt’s idiotic foreign minister claimed that what happened in Tunisia will not be repeated in Egypt!He accused foreign media to be instigating chaos and
I don’t know what Zodiac influence he’s under, but I am willing to bet a dollar that Egypt will be next, followed by Jordan. Source
A young and unemployed man set himself afire today following in the footsteps of the young Tunisian who later died of his burns. Source
The people here have warned the government to take notice of what happened in Tunisia and warned against adjusting the country’s constitution to extend the current dictator’s term!
Israel and Palestine
While the protests may not be related to the Tunisian uprising, thousands of Israelis rallied in defence of human and civil rights alongside Palestinians.
Under the banner of the “Democratic Camp”, a coalition of organisations and prominent individuals, the marchers heard speakers lambast the Israeli government, singling out the rightwing foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, who is seen as threatening Israel‘s democracy.
Saad Hariri faced calls to remain in exile after 11 Hezbollah ministers quit, causing his government to collapse. Anything to do with Tunisia? You be the judge: the timing suggests that it may just be!
Hariri said today that the crisis, Lebanon’s worst in nearly three years, would not be solved without further mediation from Saudi Arabia and Syria, the two parties in a failed deal that was supposed to help end months of political paralysis.
Happy New Year. We’re off to a fantastic start!
Freedom and True Democracy coming to a country near you!
