The Egypt Unrest: Full Coverage

February 1, 2011

*Note* This will be the only post here on the subject, we are posting comprehensive coverage of the Egyptian events at our sister site – http://nosharia.wordpress.com

*We will say here however; that this is a very complex problem over there and where we do not support Mubarak as the dictator he is, we do recognize that in the grand scheme of things, his government has been an American ally with respect to even worse and more oppresive regimes than they. They have an important peace accord with Israel and have been an important part of what stability exists in the Middle East. That being said, here are the big questions: Is this uprising similar or quite different than the 2009 pro-western uprising in Iran? (we think more different than similar so far); Is this a grassroots uprising or is there more foreign influence than not? (so far we don’t know which outways the other, but Iranian and M.B. meddling is quite prevalent); So is this a revolution or a civil war? Will the outcome result in a more free and democratic Egypt, or an Islamic state more radical and unfriendly to the rest of the world than before? If the latter, is Israel and the stability of the entire region now at greater risk? All things considered, we must gauge our reactions and our own influence, in our best interests, and the interests of real freedom and genuine liberty, accordingly!
