Truly amazing Egyptians!
One mouth after the Egyptian revolution began, the Egyptians are STILL at it. I just was a report from al-Jazeera and Tahrir square is jam-packed, totally full, with a huge crowd demanding not puppet change, but regime change.
These people are just amazing! I don't think I have ever seen such a massive and spontaneous people movement in my life.
And the people Yemen and Bahrain are still keeping up their demonstrations. And the amazingly courageous Libyans are wining back their country, city by city, at a huge cost in lives.
Arabs can be really very proud today. In a time when the word "democracy" has been corrupted so much as to become meaningless or even repulsive, the Arab people are showing the rest of the planet what people power, *real* democracy, can (and should!) be.
