International Business Times Reports Mubarak Fleeing

The beginning of the end of the Mubarak era. I never thought this would happen, and so fast. Who is next Jordan? Saudi Arabia?

Prostesters Defy Ban on Public Gathering
Protesters Set Government Building on Fire in Suez

I have unable to find any other reports on the fleeing of Mubarak's son.
There are also uncorroborated twitter reports of military using live ammunition on protesters.

This is very surprising news if Mubarak Jr. really did flea. Seems like the government didn't really give up yet.

I hope the people stay united and continue against this deviance all over the planet.

We should be able to peaceful protest ANYWHERE without being forced to split up.

Love

Not just for Egypt. I think this is the starting point for something bigger on the horizon.

You watch. this is the beginning of the end for Muslim Brotherhood rule and extremist Islam in the Middle East. If I were the Leadership of the Christian Brotherhood, I would be really quiet about now. People are tired of it, tired of government rule by edict, tired of having no job, no way to support the family that is legal, tired of having to live in poverty. Tied of having religious dogma shoved down their throats. Tired!

I disagree. I believe this could be the end of secular dictatorships crushing political dissent, and selling their people's resources and labor to western states. If anything this could be the beginning of a surge in what the west considers "radical" Islamic political ideology. In reality it is only radical because the west will no longer rape and pillage these countries at will.


Unrelated to that point
Here is the police station burning

The Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt, not part of the ruling class.
They are part of the protests.

It is not the end for them, but a new start.

The protest is not about religion. The common Egyptian people were protesting about poverty and unemployment. The riots have nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood.

As with most nations you can't be Pres if TPTB don't want you one.

Mainly in the Middle East is that a very minute subsect that numbers less then 10% of the population and it's ideals and agenda runs the spectrum over there all while living under constant fear of either Gov't or western takeover and quite frankly they are getting sick of it.

This is how real change goes down. This could also be a response to his recent standing with Christians over terrorism.

Lebanon first, Saudi Arabia next, Jordan is the most democratic in the entire region. Iran, Syria, Israel soon.

These rioters are becoming and taking their place as The True Martyrs Of Islam. This is Martyrdom personified, it is done to help out and help all and not allowed to be used to harm.

I'm a Holy Roman Catholic and like seeing the average Arab stand up for what is good. This is good.

To all reading this thread and viewing the videos, this is what Islam and all religion is all about, coming together to fix the ails of society.

When push comes to shove, revolutions are the only anwers to evict corrupt leaderships.

The only thing is, WHAT WILL BE REPLACED with for social order?

Theocracy cartel dictatorships, authoritarian military martial rule or democracy held by honest accountability?

Actually for Egypt this could very well be the start of Muslim Brotherhood rule. Mubarak is of the Nationalist Party. The Muslim Brotherhood is an illegal organization in Egypt, and is actively persecuted by the Nationalist Party. It stands in opposition to the nationalists, and did make parliamentary gains in 2005 (everyone ran as an independent, due to the group's illegality, of course - Egypt, last bastion of Ottoman bureaucracy) but remain a rather minor political influence so long as Mubarak has kept a chokehold on the government.

If the Mubarak regime falls, the brotherhood will likely be ascendant; it's very popular in Egypt, though some of this might just be due to the "underground" nature of the organization.

Many of the Middle Eastern leaders are Dictators and sooner or later Dictatorships do fall. Ironically these Dictators were kept in power by western powers and served as puppets .Are we witnessing the upsetting of the apple cart .thank you

Iran and Israel are both more democratic than Jordan, and both are far more prosperous for the "common person" than Jordan. That said, the monarchy is very popular in Jordan. Popular revolt is unlikely unless the king drops dead, or suddenly falls completely off his rocker or something.

Syria is actually doing pretty well for itself, considering Assad still runs it as a soviet-style police state. It's politically and economically stable, and Assad himself is probably the most intelligent national head in the middle east.

Saudi Arabia is just completely doomed. The only thing keeping it afloat is total American support. The Arabian people hate the Saudi government, the divisions between rich and poor are probably the largest in the world, the country has no regional allies (even Jordan would tell Saudi Arabia to piss off if push comes to shove) and the Saudi military's main claim to fame is being unable to fly their own jets. the al-Sauds should have toppled 20 years ago, and the US should let 'em.

Israel will be with us for a few decades yet. However at some point it is going to have to undergo some radical changes; there's no way that the Israel / Palestine conflict can go on for much longer. We're going to end up with a single state there, one way or another. Hopefully it'll come about as a mutual union, rather than simply demographic sweeping, but it is inevitable; two-state is dead.

Iran is also going to be around for a good long while. I predict some notable democratic reforms and some lessening of the Theocracy's power. iran is "transitional," but is nowhere near collapse. One or two violent protests does not a national revolution make.

Kuwait is in the same boat as Saudi Arabia. Huge rich / poor divisions, hated rulers, and remains existing only because of US support. However it does have the advantage of pretty much being only one city, and having a pretty docile population of imported slave labor.

Lebanon... Is a mess. There's really no solution to this place; the way the government is set up, with a set number of seats for each religion, is wacky and doomed to failure. Unfortunately, everyone in Lebanon is dead-set on maintaining that system, probably out of fear that one of the "other" groups will take over totally otherwise. I talk a lot about the political timebombs the British left scattered around the middle east and Africa; that's nothing compared to what the French left in Lebanon, good lord. That country will never actually function.

Iraq... could go either way.

Yemen is a crash course in crashing.

Turkey is the sleeper here. You've got a nation where popular opinion is pretty evenly divided between secular rule and religious rule. A substantial segment of the population is separatist Kurds. Many in the nation are desperate to become part of Europe, while others are pulling towards the Middle East. It's a democratic nation, where democracy is backed up by police force and is unavailable for religious parties, no matter how popular they may be. Basically Turkey is a big keg of gunpowder, but nobody has a match.

LOL Everyone everywhere should revolt! This world sucks balls! LOL These countries are showing the rest of the world what everyone in the world should be doing. The USA should start by revolting against the Federal Reserve. Everyone should go there tomorrow and burn that corrupt EVIL building down to the ground! Then NEVER let some corporation run your money ever again.
