While you demand an answer.. Can you point out where he said they did? Your turning into another Oozy! Get off his back, he was simply saying that Iranian human rights "mold" is not one to emulate! To that I 100% agree!

Oh, because you say so? So your interpretation demands answers to verify your interpretation? Stop it! This thread is not a pissing match about how much you loath Israel and love Iran!

Start another thread deatailing how to have a proper debate about Israel .... While your at it, use Israel and the US as examples... We saw where that rabbit hole leads to!

I am sure they are surrounding the palace.... But, not for the reason we are hoping for.. There are surely enough soldiers, that still back the current tyrant. This is where the violence will get catastrophic... Once the protesters get the #'s outside the palace, they will undoubtedly storm the palace... This will lead to a blood bath.

That are pro-Mubarak military.


About 35,000 people have taken to the streets Friday in the Egyptian city of Suez, a spokesman for opposition leader Ayman Nour told CNN.

CNN's Ivan Watson reports that secret police are just outside the building he's broadcasting from. They're going to try to bring down the media reports again.



2 APCs preventing anyone from getting onto the bridge, so that way to the square is bloacked. Tanks moving around, lots of soldiers on foot, some of whom are wearing helmets.


15 thousand protesters in the city of Rafah in Sinai on the border with Gaza


AlMasryAlYoum_E: Four killed in fights over gas cylinders, many injured in fights over bread #Jan25 #Egypt

It's getting bad out there...


More from Wyre Davies in Alexandria (see 1420 entry): "A number of armed police - uniformed and plain clothes - were seen near the main square and several hotels in the area were told, under no circumstances, to allow in foreigners or journalists. As we approached the square, under the watchful eye of several demonstrators, I saw a secret policeman being dragged away by the crowd, beaten up and bundled into a car - we don't know what happened to him next."


Al Jazeera reporter in Alexandria: 2 big protests just merged. "Hundreds of thousands, possibly millions."



Army special forces are now on the perimeter of the square. Hardcore counter terror teams rather than regular army

Oh boy. Those are most likely pro-Mubarak thug... maybe they're waiting for darkness before striking...

Alshaheeed JP says tunnels between Gaza & Sinai are now used to send vital food supplies to Sinai not the other way round. #Jan25

Highly unlikely... Unless the situation in Gaza isn't as bad as we're led to believe


On that note- When are the world's nations going to send these protesters some food?! When *Gaza* is the one providing *food* for the protesters, you really know you've hit rock bottom..


Mubarak to ABC: Muslim Brothers will come to power if I leave now

Oh, he knows exactly what buttons to push...


100's of INFRA RED SMALL CAMERAS are given to Tahrir protestors to record any attack at night on Tahrir

And in other news- People mysteriously electrocuted in Tahrir square, protesters are blaming government lightning rays.


ProducerMatthew New: @AlArabiya_Eng: 1 RPG and 1 bomb attacks on 2 different security posts in Nothern Sinai

And so it begins..


Food running out in many areas of Egypt

This was Mubarak's plan all along- To starve out the protesters.


AlArabiya_Eng Egypt police detain 10 men with explosives

And so it continues to begin..


only about 3000 pro-Mubarak protestors out and 2 million anti-Mubarak protestors

One of these numbers must be off, how on earth could 3000 people take on 2 million like they did the past few days?


Finance Minister has announced that $850M will be distributed as compensation for property damage during the protests.

Yeah, right, I can see how the bureaucratic red tape is going to smother the money out of 70% of people who were wronged.

The fact that they never get their own hands dirty doesn't mean they don't send out and fund people to die for their causes.. Definitely doesn't make them peaceful.

It's like coyly asking "What has America ever done to influence Egypt? When has it ever attacked Egypt?".

Report: Saboteurs attack Egypt-Israel gas pipeline
One brief exchange was tantalising though. Mr Gibbs was asked if there had been an assassination attempt against Vice-President Omar Suleiman in the last few days. Looking rattled, he said he wasn't going to get into that. Other sources are equally reticent as to any detail but certainly suggest something happened. If it is true, the big question would be who would be behind it this attempt.

There are 8 million people in Cairo proper, 17 million in the immediate suburbs and outlying areas. 80 million in Egypt.

Here is Tahrir Sqaure at peak on Tuesday during the March of Millions....




Here is Michigan Stadium, during a football game, capacity 109,000...




Trying to remain objective, but I dont think there were was anywhere near a million people in the sqaure. Pay close attention to the density of people in the Michigan stadium shot, and the loose density at Tahrir.

I do not deny that there is a revolution taking place, and that Egypt is changed forever. I cannot deny that there is an agenda behind this, albeit an ancient one.

If anyone can find an aerial shot or a different angle that better depicts the crowd at the square I am prepared to reverse my position.
