Arab dictators--kings, presidents-for-life, generals and colonels--feeling the heat from Egypt's determined protesters, have urged US President Barack Obama not to press the Egyptian tyrant Hosni Mubarak too hard. They fear that if Mubarak were to fall quickly, their own shaky thrones would be in danger.
The line-up of Arab potentates in interesting. The king of Saudi Arabia, Abdullah has joined his name-sake but bitter rival, Abdullah of Jordan, the ruler of the United Arab Emirates and the zionist rulers of Palestine to collectively urge Obama not to insist on Mubarak's immediate departure.
The Arab potentates need not worry. The Americans understand this all too well. They do not want to hand over an important country like Egypt to a "mob" that would in turn jeopardize their favourite client, Israel. Instead, the Americans are speaking from both sides of their mouths. Whether Obama, vice president Joe Biden or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have all repeatedly said they want an "orderly transition." This is euphemism for no sudden changes, that is no transfer of power to the genuine representatives of the people. Instead, the US wants transfer of power to an equally, if not more secure pair of hands.
Who else but Omar Suleiman, the torturer-in-chief of the Pharaonic Mubarak regime in Egypt. Suleiman and his side-kick, general Mahmoud Wagdy, the new Interior Minister, who had served as the chief jailer of Egypt when Suleiman was chief of Egypt's dreaded intelligence agency, are trusted US and zionist agents. They have been involved in horrible crimes against their own people for years.
Even now, hundreds of protesters have disappeared from the streets and their family members have no idea where they are held or whether they are even alive. It is not surprising that in addition to Mubarak, both Suleiman and Wagdy are etremely popular with the Americans and the Israelis. Both men have blood on their hands.
The virtually leaderless movement of young enthusiasts, however, have surmounted the biggest challenge of their life: fear. The regime can no longer intimidate them. Equally important is the fact that the regime cannot provoke them as it tried to do when it unleashed its thugs against them on February 2. If the pro-democracy and pro-dignity demonstrators can keep their cool and not succumb to provocations, they would surely prevail.
Gradually, they are also developing media skills since they are denied access to the regime-controlled media that continues to dish out drivel and paint the protesters as foreign agents. Is it not ironic that the regime that has been propped up by foreign money and has acted as slave of the US and zionist Israel should have its mouthpieces proclaim peaceful protesters as "foreign agents"? It is in fact to regain their dignity, one of the most popular slogans of the mass uprising, that has uplifted their movement.
Egypt is on the verge of a breakthrough. Thanks to the courage and spirit of sacrifice of the young people, they are about to return Egypt to its rightful place in the wider Middle East: the most important player in the region. This is what scares the US and its zionist allies. They want to keep Egypt subservient to US-zionist interests.
The people of Egypt are saying they have had enough and they will put up with no more indignity and insults: neither of the Americans or the even more pushy zionists. The people have found their courage and regained their dignity. The degree of support extended by people to each other is exemplary. Such power cannot be crushed by tanks or broken by vile propaganda. By their steadfastness, they have already written a glorious chapter in their history.
