The most stable regime in the Arab world topples under mass peaceable protests, and people like this
Vox populi: Vox Dei
The Voice of Freedom has spoken across Egypt today
I can’t remember a moment like this since 1989 and the fall of the Berlin Wall. My take…
People are dancing on the streets, praying on flags, dancing on flags with soldiers. Their biggest repeated statement
We are not afraid
After the tear gas, the truncheons, water cannons, bullets. After the internet closedowns and withdrawal of policing, and paid thugs looting…
And then the paid thugs stoning demonstrators, charging them with horses and camels, snipers on roofs…
For all this, the blackmail and threats, the pain and the blood, the loss of livelihoods and the loss of lives..
The people stayed the course, never fell for the provocations.
Compare this kind of regime change to that imposed from the outside (by Bush in Iraq).
This is a great moment for democrats everywhere. A great moment for religious tolerance and mutual understanding. A great day for communication and transparency, a free press, a free internet…
We are all victors here. We should all be celebrating
