  1. I have no doubt that the voice of the people is the ultimate truth.

    Ironic how the US and its allies are reacting to the “democratic” uprising in Egypt.
    Disturbing how Hilary Clinton unashamedly talks about “her” priorities for the region.
    Embarrassing how old friends are dropped and exposed as the true puppets they were.
    Interesting how 33 years after signing a peace treaty between Egypt and Israel it’s still not worth more than the true value of the two psychopaths who signed it, megalomaniac Sadat and war criminal Menachem Begin.

    You keep screwing people… people will screw you back whoever you are (that includes, individuals, countries and occupiers)

    Thanks Isobel for taking a stand.

    1. This whole event has fascinated me. The uprising itself to interpretations, reactions, prediction, threats…you name it. I certainly hope it will bring positive change – a change that will improve the lives of the people of Egypt.

  2. We are on the brink of a historic moment. For the first time in as far as I can remember, I’m watching the news with a smile on my face. We’re all supporting the brave men and women in Egypt. I have no doubt in my mind that their determination will bear fruit.

    1. I’m watching too, Omar, with bridled optimism. There are so many things that could go wrong, but so far and for the most part, it has gone right. I’m hoping beyond anything that the people get what they want.
