I had noticed on the front page that there were so many threads
basically surrounding world protests, revolutions and regimes
toppling and decided to create a catch-all thread, a ticker of sorts
to read the play by play of the changing face of the world.

Please post your most recent updates concerning these world
events in one thread so they can be found easier in one index.

I was gonna put this in Middle East forum but decided Global
Meltdown was better due to this revolution might spill over to
other countries than just the Middle East. Mods move as you
see fit.

thanks for your help

Israel Fears Regime Change in Egypt




Israel is watching developments in Egypt with concern. The government is standing by autocratic Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, out of fear that the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood could take power and start supplying arms to Hamas.

In his remarks to Army Radio, Ben-Eliezer also explained Israel's position on the protests. "Israel cannot do anything about what is happening there," he said. "All we can do is express our support for (Egyptian President Hosni) Mubarak and hope the riots pass quietly." He added that Egypt was Israel's most important ally in the region.


There's a big key right there :::::::::>

"Egypt is Israel's most important ally in the region"

So stability is threatened by a regime change.

Looters destroy mummies in Egyptian Museum: official



CAIRO (Reuters) - Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum during anti-government protests late Friday and destroyed two Pharaonic mummies, Egypt's top archaeologist told state television.

The museum in central Cairo, which has the world's biggest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, is adjacent to the headquarters of the ruling National Democratic Party that protesters had earlier set ablaze. Flames were seen still pouring out of the party headquarters early Saturday.

why do ancient treasure always have to be
looted when chaos breaks out. This happened
in Iraq also when the US invaded.

Mubarak Appoints First Vice President



With 50,000 demonstrators on the streets of Cairo, embattled President Hosni Mubarak appointed a vice president Saturday for the first time in his 28-year tenure. Omar Suleiman, Mubarak’s intelligence chief and longtime adviser, will now serve as his vice president and likely successor, instead of his own son. Mubarak also named Ahmed Shafiq to be the country's new prime minister. Activists told Al Jazeera that they reject the new members of the government, and would not stop protesting until Mubarak himself steps down.

well there's a first,
Mubarek choosing a VP
and it's not even his son.
Don't think it really matters

An all encompassing thread about global issues? Sure, why not. It'll be hard to maintain though when SHTF on a much larger scale, not to mention the mixing of countries and all.

Egypt and Syria are now a hot topic around, so I'll link to the MEGA thread created by Vitchilo. 1 year coverage guaranteed.

ETA:




Mubarek choosing a VP and it's not even his son. Don't think it really matters


Who cares. The VP will be controlled by Mubarak anyway. I don't get it why he thinks that egyptians are stupid and are going to fall for it. Because they're not and they won't.
He's trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

Is Muammar Qaddafi Next ????



Libya's neighbors are in turmoil. To the west is Tunisia. To the east is Egypt.

And with Libya's immediate neighbors convulsed by public protests over the brutality and kleptocracy of their ruling familes, a newly leaked cable from the U.S. Embassy in Libya suggests that strongman Muammar Qaddafi has created a decadent, money-hungry family dynasty that could find itself the target of the next Arab revolution in the streets.


www.thedailybeast.com...

Could Libya be next in the string of
ousted dictators???

Qaddafi was just a short time ago
speaking about a CIA money laundering
operation that used Swiss bank accounts.
So let's see how he fares.

Sudanese police clash with students in Khartoum



KHARTOUM — Sudanese police beat and arrested students on Sunday as protests broke out throughout Khartoum demanding the government resign, inspired by a popular uprising in neighboring Egypt.

Hundreds of armed riot police fired tear gas on students demonstrating in central Khartoum and in at least two universities in the capital, which were surrounded by police reinforcements. At one, students hurled stones at police cars.

Police beat students with batons as they chanted anti-government slogans like: "We are ready to die for Sudan" and "Revolution, revolution until victory."


www.msnbc.msn.com...

and the Revolution hits the African continent.
I am beginning to wonder if this Revolution
won't end til it gets to the Vatican.

All going according to plan...



You can't force people to surrender their nations and constitutions to a one world government. They have to want it... to arrive at a place where they actually beg for it. And the only way to do that is to create so much misery and chaos that those long established foundations of culture and civilization crumble under the weight of the mayhem.

We haven't quite arrived at that point yet, but we are now well on the way...

US citizens are being told to leave and the army is now doing something as I write this: putting up roadblocks to keep people out of Cairo for the 1 million+ man protest and now protesters are starting to clash with the military. Craziness.
