Report: Miqati Informed Ambassadors his Rejection to Compromise on Any Political Issue

Premier-designate Najib Miqati met with more than 10 ambassadors in the past two days amid a report that he informed them about his rejection to compromise on any political issue.

Pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat quoted Western diplomatic sources as saying on Sunday that Miqati told the ambassadors that "he didn't intend to compromise on any political file."


And word given to the press that ``severe deterioration of the situation`` in the coming hours is expected in Egypt... HOPEFULLY this means that they know that Mubarak will leave the country...

Hopefully it's not Mubarak starting to just bomb and kill protesters like he just doesn't care. Or worse...foreign intervention to keep Mubarak in power?

He ordered his Forces (Thugs and Police) to damage historic Artifacts,killing and looting Protestors in the Night etc.

It clearly shows he doesnt care about Egypt one bit expect if its him in Power. I hope he comes to his senses and doesnt do something very,very stupid.

Saudi king tells Obama he supports Egypt stability

The Saudi press agency says King Abdullah has told President Barack Obama that there should be no bargaining about Egypt's stability and the security of its people.

SPA said Sunday that Obama phoned the king in Morocco, where he is recuperating from surgery, and that both leaders were not happy with the chaotic situation and looting.

SPA said Mubarak assured the king that "the situation is stable" and that Egypt was determined to deter attempts to cause disorder.

Insane. Just insane.

With the army withdrawn from the border and sent in Cairo and other cities, with a new gvt formed from ex-militaries
and now Al Jazeera down, I wonder what will happen? Will orders come to destroy the revolution? Will the army ignore their superiors and side with the people as they have stated before?
We will all see what happens in these few days ahead of us.

Hopefully the result is a coup against Mubarak for letting this happen.

My guess is that they're afraid of extremists taking over Egypt after Mubarak's fall. Losing another ally in the ME would be a kick in the groin for Israel.

He could be overthrown anytime soon from what we can all see.

Very reliable source from Egypt: Habib Al Adly authorized snipers yesterday to shoot at protesters.



Very reliable source from Egypt: Habib Al Adly was arrested for opening the doors to all jail cells yesterday so chaos ensues.



A Palestinian man was shot Sunday morning by Israeli soldiers while collecting gravel in northern Gaza.



Egyptian Stock Exchange will be closed on Monday for the second consecutive day because of the successive political developments in Egypt.


And about Israeli troops being deployed in the Sinai, I bet Mubarak approved this. Which might not go so well with the Egyptian military or population.
