I would hope they are not that fanatical but if they decide it's Mubarak or nothing.How would the US respond what,would they declare The Movement as being "terrorist inspired." ?

Probably not. Probably would say ``it's an internal matter``... or Egypt ``has fallen into civil war``... when in fact it's a dictator trying to stay in power.


Protestor handing biscuits out to all in the heart of the square. It feels kinda like an Egyptian version of Woodstock at the mo! #Egypt

Nice.


"Al-Jazeera reporter says too many road blocks for protesters to get from Tahrir to palace".



Al Jazeera English: Unconfirmed reports that that army and the police are clashing

Oh boy. UPDATE : CONFIRMED. Army arresting the cops who are doing trouble...

Update from AJ :

AJ: Army arresting "saboteurs and thugs" who are trying to infiltrate the protesters



Curfew now in place officially...government warning people to return to their home

Of course people ignore it.

Asr prayer in 2 hours, 8AM EST... lasts for about 20 minutes... then we'll see if they march on the presidential palace.

Indeed they are. But more important, it seems the opposition will create another government, leading to elections, ignoring totally Mubarak and his gang of thugs.

Basically there will be TWO governments in Egypt soon. One with Mubarak, and one with the people!

Now... will other countries recognize this? Will Mubarak allow this? Will Mubarak resign?

THIS IS THE END OF MUBARAK...RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. or the beginning of a civil war.


Al-Jazeera now reporting that there's more than a million people in Cairo in the Freedom Square.


WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Monday for the first time that it supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government.

The International Network for Rights and Development has claimed that Israeli logistical support has been sent to Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to help his regime confront demonstrations demanding that he steps down as head of state. According to reports by the non-governmental organisation, three Israeli planes landed at Cairo's Mina International Airport on Saturday carrying hazardous equipment for use in dispersing and suppressing large crowds.

We'll see about that... if they use new anti-crowd weapons, this report it's true... if they don't, it's false.

army has estimated number of protesters at entrance of tahrir at 2 million

TWO MILLION!!!!!!!!! While those retards at BBC say 100 000... BBC lying on purpose?


5 of the major streets into Tahrir Sq are FULL as far as eye can see - so many people noone can move



RT @NicRobertsonCNN: Reports soldiers taking big guns off their vehicles, say they have orders to avoid confrontation. #Alexandria #egypt #jan25 #mubarak

The army is not really siding with the people...


@tomgara @elbaradei will be joining the crowd in Tahrir. He just confirmed on Alarabiya TV #Egypt #Jan25



Ayman Noor, who spent most of his life in jail because of Mubarak, will probably end up president when all is said and done.

Yeah, look at all these people at the square, just freaking amazing pictures!

I think we should not be naive regarding the military, like everything else when things like this goes down, there could very well be a 50-50 situation among the military forces still loyal to Mubarak me thinks?

The Airforce seems to be very loyal to their own comrade in arms, Mubarak!

A possible civil war would be an awful result of this uprising. I just heard on Al Jazeera that the opposition today gave the military an ultimatum to decide which side they're really on - they want the military's answer before thursday!


Keep up the good work Vitchilo!

Well El Baradei is ``sick``... and the other big leader Ayman Noor is at the hospital because he was injured on January 30 when he was hit by rocks at the head.


In other news, the JORDANIAN GOVERNMENT HAS RESIGNED!!!!!!

But the new government will apparently be led by Maarouf Al Bakhit, which was prime minister from 2005 to 2007... and King Abdullah 2 is still in power. So... no real change there....for now.


NUMBERS OF Protestors #Egypt [#jan25 #Mubarak] 250,000+ In #Mansoura 250,000+ In #Suez 400,000+ In #Alex 1,000,000+ in #Tahrir #Cairo

Exactly, this is the most important and beautiful scene. Of course there are some organisations behind this gathering but it is fully authentic action of the people themselves. I am proud of them.
