Re: Egypt Revolts!

We can't use what happened 30 years ago as a measure of whats happening now, we're in the age where people want freedom, internet freedom, freedom to express themselves. This is a revolt against the government not lead by an Islamist but by Youth hungry for change. I think if the US continues it support of Mubarek then we invite Islamist and extremism in.

If this were ten years ago there wouldn't be all these fears. What has happened is that Americans are now so terrified of fundamentalist Islam that it is impossible to see any Middle Eastern events in any other terms. Being blinded by fear is, when you come down to it, being blind to events.
