I Can’t Stop Watching Egypt

January 29th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

As usual, I’m totally uninformed and I have to play catch-up to understand what’s happening. This op-ed in the Independent was a good starter piece. Coupled with these pages from a leaflet the protestors are distributing. Okay, reading more … I support this uprising. I hope it doesn’t get more bloody. What’s going to happen today??

Update: Reuters is saying 74 dead.
Update: Dead being carried through the streets.
Update: Also from 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 … “Egyptian citizens tried to prevent them and were joined by the tourism police, but some (looters) managed to enter from above and they destroyed two of the mummies,” he said [Zahi Hawass, chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities].” Why??

    “This is not an Islamic uprising – though it could become one”

    I hope not!

    Yeah, but so far it doesn’t seem to be developing in that way at all.
