Now the big question is.... what happens next? I heard this morning on headline news that there Al Qaeda has already set up terrorist cells within the nation.
President Hosni Mubarak is expected to say in a speech Tuesday night that he plans on stepping down at the next election scheduled in September, according to Reuters.
He does plan to stay in office until then to meet the demands of the protesters.
Al-Jazeera reports that the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv is making preparations to welcome him into exile.

From the twitter messages and news coverage I've been seeing. They will accept nothing more than his Resignation ASAP.
He had ruled Egypt unchallenged until 2005, when multicandidate elections were allowed for the first time. However, requirements introduced to the constitution by his ruling party severely limit who can run in next year's vote, making a comfortable win for the ruling party candidate a virtually foregone conclusion.
