12:48pm Thirty-four political prisoners, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, were released on Tuesday, according to Egyptian state television.

The government seems to be scrambling under pressure from international governments and pro-democracy supporters, Al Jazeera's reporter in Cairo said. She added however, that there are still an unknown number of people missing, including activists who took part in the recent protests.

Hey to the wonderful Limpan cheers

I would be surprised if they were NOT asking for JediJaney. We should send a note through saying,

'tough you cant have her because she belongs to us, so nee nawww'

afro

Seriously though I hope they find this place. Perhaps we should switch on our psychotic/pike-ick powers and send messages to them via ESP

It is a shame that they won't post this site. GLP talks about freedom in fact rants about it yet uses censorship. Hypocrisy

Human Rights Watch have issued the following damning report on continuing abuses under the Mubarak regime.
While Washington seems content with a Suleiman led process of 'political dialogue' this is what his intelligence services have been up to. Note the alleged involvement of the military which claims to be neutral in all of this.Egypt: Investigate Arrests of Activists, Journalists
Military’s Arbitrary Arrests, Beatings Are Trademark of Interior Ministry Repression(Cairo, February 9, 2011) – The Egyptian government should order military police, army officers, and State Security Investigations officers to cease arresting journalists, activists, and protesters arbitrarily, Human Rights Watch said today. Army officers and military police arbitrarily detained at least 119 people since the army took up positions in Egyptian cities and towns on the night of January 28, 2011, and in at least five cases tortured them.

Thanks for this important news and good morning Straw! It's good we have organizations like Human Rights Watch.

Strawberry wrote:Al-Qaeda in Iraq calls on Egyptian protestors to wage jihad

Al-Qaeda-front group The Islamic State of Iraq has called on Egyptian protestors to wage jihad and push for the establishment of a government based on Islamic law, the US-based SITE monitoring service said Tuesday.

The statement, which appears to be the first reaction of any group affiliated with Al-Qaeda to the ongoing protests in Egypt, was issued on jihadist forums on February 8, according to the US group.

The message, addressed to the protestors, says that the "market of jihad" has opened in Egypt and "the doors of martyrdom have opened," and every able-bodied man must participate.

The group urged Egyptians to ignore the "ignorant deceiving ways" of secularism, democracy, and "rotten pagan nationalism."

http://nowlebanon.com/NewsArticleDetails.aspx?ID=238731

you know this was only a matter of time before they said something. My only surprise is why this didnt happen sooner. I think Muh and I were wondering about this over a week ago now. If they seen an opening they take it. I think the good news is that their power base in Egypt is very weak, but they should still be watched
I wonder if they are still being run by CIA. Over here they seem to come up with fake Osama crap whenever the want to scare people. I no longer pay any attention to any of it.

It seems that it is all walks of people that are protesting not just the poor
Yes, we saw that trend big time yesterday and it will only grow. The revolution is growing.

Janey wrote:Middle East peace process 'at threat' from Egypt turmoil

The peace process in the Middle East is under serious threat as a result of the political instability in Egypt, William Hague has claimed.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/israel/8312848/Middle-East-peace-process-at-threat-from-Egypt-turmoil.html
This strikes me as just more fear mongering on their part. I am quite skeptical of their so-called peace process, which seems based on suppression of people in Egypt and in other countries allied to the US.
