I feel the same Asala, thanks for your updates. I've seen a great deal of history unfold in my lifetime .... it never gets old. I only hope, however, that it all plays out peacefully for the folks in Egypt. The world is watching and waiting....

Even if he does step down, Egypt will still be a piece of crap/dangerous country.

here's the conflicting reports that I have heard in the last 10 mins..

Mubarak to step down.. military to take over until elections..

Mubarak to step down.. VP to take over...

Information minister in Egypt said that Mubarak is NOT stepping down..

two of the three would not sit well with the demonstrators, considering the rumors that have been circulating through the crowd and their spirits so high..

add to that, the report that the military has reportedly said that they will force the crowd to leave after this announcement..

I am hoping for the best for the folks in the square..

I forgot to toss in this somewhat related news...


DNI Clapper: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood 'largely secular'

...In response to questioning from Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) about the threat posed by the group, Clapper suggested that the Egyptian part of the Brotherhood is not particularly extreme and that the broader international movement is hard to generalize about.

"The term 'Muslim Brotherhood'...is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam," Clapper said. "They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera.....In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally."..

Last time I witnessed anything similar was while I was in Berlin when the wall fell.

Don't say that, you'll scare many of the members LOL

Yes, you are correct; and it was the British that in fact created them in the 1920's

I look at that news as a sign of the US gov't moving towards a working relationship with the group...

These kinds of things don't occur out of the blue

Thought I'd mention to you all that the largest Egyptian community outside Egypt reside in Adelaide, Australia.

Just the mention of the Muslim Brotherhood scares people but a majority don't know exactly who they are because the media has brought them down. The Muslim Brotherhood are among one of the most misunderstood organisation in the world.

I've found Al Jazeera the most well balanced of all media corporations throughout this revolution; they also have the most viewers, most tweets on Twitter.
