The   Arab masses  dismissively referred  to as the "Arab Street" by governments  in Tunisia, Egypt,Yemen, Algeria, Jordan among  other governments, are now  unstoppable. The one million march  in 'Tahrir' square appropriately named "Liberation" square, is now evolving   into  20 million and more , with several  governments in the region  teetering  from loss of control,  electrifying  people all over the  world who were  in despair ,  exhausted  by decades of the domination of  inhuman  kleptocracies in a global alliance , stealing the resources, livelihood and labour of millions of people, fossilizing  their tyranny with skillful and  Machiavellian political manipulations and increasing use of para military and military  operations to control their own citizens, in a period of rapidly deteriorating economic conditions, the consequence of' Neoliberal economic policies  implemented in alliance with global capital and its  institutions, with run away inflation worsened by unemployment ,in countries where the majority of people are below the age of thirty , many without jobs at the threshold of their lives .

Who’s Falling In The Arab World? - By Justin Peters (13/2/11) PDF Print E-mail

Just 33 years ago, the Little Dragon set in motion an Armageddon that was not foretold by the Christian Bible. Now, beginning in 2011 in the Arab world, we witness the gathering start of seismic changes that will span the next 33 years, that were not foreseen by Deng Xiaoping when he ignited the fuse of China's economic rise nor predicted by any of those world-renowned self-styled futurologists, that will dwarf the digital revolution and herald the last days of the American Empire.
 
The last 170 years - begun with Britain's Opium War on China in 1840 - marked the international rise, to a giddying zenith, of the West's ruling cartels of industrialists and politicians, inevitably and eventually with America taking the lead in the mass enslavement of the rest of the world. Together with almost every Western European nation, big and small, America's lustful ruling class has ridden rough-shot over Latin America, Asia, Africa and, to this very day, the biblically fateful Middle East.

The Speech Delivered by Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah During the Solidarity Rally with Egypt that was Held in Ghobairy Municipality Square – Jnah on 7th February 2011 (11/2/11) PDF Print E-mail
Speech by Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah   
Friday, 11 February 2011 12:34

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the world. Peace be on our Master and Prophet Abi Al Qassem Mohammad and on his chaste Household, chosen companions and on all prophets and messengers. Peace be upon you and Allah's mercy and blessings.

We meet today with a clear-cut aim. We gather here to express our solidarity stand with the Egyptian people and youth as well as with the Tunisian people and youth. However before tackling some important points – and I am very cautious not to take much of your time and to reiterate what the dear speakers had already said as they were great in all what they said - I would like first to address the Tunisian people and now the Egyptian people with an apology for being a few day late in holding this rally. It's not that we were hesitant of doubtful or needed more contemplation – as we are parties which have this long history in resisting the US-Israeli project in Lebanon and the region and we can't stand on the hill when the struggle is between righteousness and oppression and between the oppressor and the oppressed. We were rather cautious that you won't be accused as you are accused now. This is what called on us to take a few days.

Egyptian Uprising, Facts And Fiction - By Ahmed Amr (11/2/11) PDF Print E-mail

Palestine Chronicle

As hundreds of thousands of Egyptians entered Tahrir Square on Friday, they were welcomed by a human corridor of young men clapping and chanting 'keep the faith countrymen - freedom is being born.'  The protest was billed as 'Yom El Raheel' - a farewell party for Hosni Mubarak. 

There was something obviously different about the crowd that showed up to participate in what turned out to be the largest demonstration since the uprising began. For one thing, they came without their children and there were fewer women in the crowd. That was to be expected. Fear of violent attacks by the hired thugs of the Mubarak’s ruling party haunted the event and the square was littered with stones and debris from the battles on Wednesday. Many of the veterans of those attacks were limping or walking around with blood soaked bandages. 

The few foreign journalists who came to cover the event were edgy and visibly concerned for their own personal safety. In a desperate effort to reduce coverage of the demonstrations, Mubarak’s goons had attacked them in their hotels and stolen or damaged their equipment. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 114 foreign journalists have been attacked or arrested in the last two days. The government blamed the intimidation campaign on unidentified rogue elements in the security forces but the harassment continues.
