I understand protest. Go for it. More power to you.
But rioting? In another country? What exactly does that accomplish? Do they think that it'll change this administrations mind? Gibbs is on CNN now supporting those protesting in Egypt.

But I'm jumping the gun. Perhaps it'll be peaceful.

Hmm, wonder if that would make the news here in the country, if it happens.

I know I can count on ATS to have info, but I am curious if the rest of the sheeple would be informed.

Interesting times, interesting times indeed.

Peace and Vigilance,

Gibbs and Hillary both supported the protesters but didn't support the Iranian protesters.

Iran cleric: Mideast unrest replay of our 1979 Islamic revolution
Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said protests in Egypt, Tunisia show the era of 'Western-backed dictators' in the Arab world is over.


There is something really strange going on.

Aren't there human rights issues in all these countries, and hasn't there been for a very long time?

I think the United states wants regime change throughout the area.

Except for Iran that is.


Where is Obama?

Oh geez. A nation is protesting its government and someone (doesn't even matter who made the decision or started the rumor) has to make this about Islam? Give me a break.

Here is the official Washington statement, not sure Obama's name isn't on it, but we all know he never writes any of this stuff anyways.

www.state.gov


We are We are monitoring the situation in Egypt closely. The United States supports the fundamental right of expression and assembly for all people. All parties should exercise restraint, and we call on the Egyptian authorities to handle these protests peacefully. As Secretary Clinton said in Doha, people across the Middle East – like people everywhere – are seeking a chance to contribute and to have a role in the decisions that will shape their lives. We want to see reform occur, in Egypt and elsewhere, to create greater political, social, and economic opportunity consistent with people’s aspirations. The United States is a partner of Egypt and the Egyptian people in this process, which we believe should unfold in a peaceful atmosphere. We have raised with governments in the region the need for reforms and greater openness and participation in order to respond to their people’s aspirations – and we will continue to do so.

Who do you think is protesting?

The history of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt following its founding in 1928 has been one of huge growth followed by successive government crackdowns. Both royal and nationalist Egyptian governments suppressed the Brotherhood in 1948, 1954, 1965 after plots, or alleged plots, of assassination and overthrow were uncovered. Periodic suppressions have continued even after the Brotherhood officially renounced violence in the 1970s. Today it is illegal but tolerated as Egypt's most popular and powerful non-governmental organization.

en.wikipedia.org...


The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has confirmed that it will takepart in the Day of Rage protests scheduled for January 25.

So it's not the people of Egypt but the Muslim Brotherhood. Um okay. I don't see that proof here.

My only point here is that religion is an issue unless someone wants it to be, and see therein lies the crux of this whole mucked up situation. Where anywhere did this brotherhood issue a statement or make a demand? The people have stated what they want. What's it matter what freaking religion the people are?

It riots break out in the streets here, are we going to hear "Christians Take to the Streets in North America?" Doubt it. Because Christianity's not the preordained enemy here. Not by the people in control of this and of the media, and not yet, anyway.

Furthermore, has anyone even confirmed "Jim from the U.S.'s" story?

I live within 5 miles of Dearborn and have not seen or heard anything about an alert on local news.

Similar rumors were circulating after 9/11 and I lived in Dearborn at that time and had no worries. Quit fearmongering.

Exactly. Detroit does have a significant Muslim population, however they are Iraqi not Egyptian. The Egyptian protests have nothing to do with anything other than the politics of their own country, so why would American Egyptians start rioting and protesting? It makes no dang sense.

Gotta watch out for the Muslims
I guess.

The only thing I have heard is that some Canadian Egyptians and others were going to protest at the Egyptian Embassies in Canada, haven't heard anything about similar events in the US. Even still, there is no embassy in Detroit.

Thanks.

Interesting about the Canadian thing. Are they protesting or gathering to show solidarity and support?

Yes, as far as I understand, I have never met an Egyptian that liked Mubarak or his regime and for the one's that have left that seems to be the most common reason.

cnews.canoe.ca...

Yes, as a show of solidarity they have no beef with Canada.

This is major, I am afraid most of us truly do not fully realize what is about to happen.

Wasn't "shooting" anybody, just giving observations from the area of which your post is about. Some average Joe posting on bbc about a "friend" in Dearborn was fearmongering and you threw it up with a title that makes it seem as if things were going awry in a community that you know nothing of.

No need for name calling (trigger boy), when I was just making an observation about the area in which I live.
