1030 GMT: Some interesting remarks from Islam Lotfi, a lawyer and leader of the Muslim Brotherhood Youth, to The New York Times: "[Lotfi] points to pluralistic Turkey. On the question of alcohol --- forbidden by Islam --- he suggested that drinking was a private matter but that perhaps it should be forbidden in public."

But it is this paragraph that seizes attention:


Asked if he could imagine an Egyptian president who was a Christian woman, he paused. “If it is a government of institutions,” he said, “I don’t care if the president is a monkey.”

Another busy day for me. Nowhere near enough time to keep up.
It looks like the nation of Egypt is rallying.
Just checking in, will go back through the thread to pick the pearls. Good work guys.
Almost nothing to be heard about the uprising in Egypt here in Australia.
What is being conveyed in my country (OZ) is far from accurate, simply because too many pieces of the puzzle are not being aired.
Thanks for keeping on this guys. Your efforts are appreciated.

A friend says that the army raising yellow flags means they are preparing to use teargas. Good luck with that in this rain. #jan25

Every morning I seem to have a new theory - as the onion peels back on the regime and the region more and more actors enter the fray.

Today I wonder about the latest news that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE all offering billions in military support for the Mubarak regime, a deal that appears to have been brokered by the US. What could that mean?

Is the overall plan to build a coalition of dictatorial states to stand shoulder to shoulder to damp down popular unrest across the region, attempting to contain the bloodshed and chaos to Egypt alone? I also wonder about Al Jazeera, which has played a singular role in fomenting popular unrest out of Qatar. How long can that one small princelette withstand the pressure around it to rein in the coverage?

That's what I'm thinking about today.

On the way back to Tahrir after a quick break home. Traffic's bad, is this related to army/police mobilizations in Heliopolis?

yes, this is correct. If you remember, yesterday I said there would be an attempt to reach the palace today. Not sure how successful it will be. The palace currently makes Fort Knox look insecure!

The protesters surged forward, quickly routing the police. Police seemed skittish in front of the thousands of lawyers. #jan25 #egypt

quite right, there are major protests planned there tomorrow. That said, there were always plans by a couple of small groups to head there today also.

CAIRO — Civil rights groups claim scores of protesters in Egypt have been secretly detained by the army and some have been tortured, it was reported Thursday.

The report in the U.K.'s Guardian newspaper came amid renewed threats from President Hosni Mubarak's regime of a military coup if the protest continued.

A civil rights group leader told the newspaper that people had "disappeared" across the country in an unprecedented move by the military amid the ongoing demonstrations designed to drive Mubarak from power.

Good, guess the yellow flags don't mean tear gas.

Just ask an army guy. He told me that yellow flags on tanks signify presedential guard platoons, not tear gas. #jan25

If this has already been asked then please forgive me, but what can we do to help? Meaning what action can people here in the US and elsewhere do to physically help those who are protesting? Any ideas or suggestions?

Will it's about time. Can't they make 50% stay at Tahir and the rest march against the palace??

Every US citizen should call or mail the white house and their elected officials and demand justice and democracy in Egypt
