The news from Tahrir Square tonight seems more positive. But of course, that depends very much from which balcony you watch the proceedings. I felt proud of yet another demonstration of people’s power and the ousting of a man who seemed determined to rule for some more than other.
On the other hand, I felt unsettled that a man and Party elected only a year ago in what was deemed a fair and free election is being pushed out by ‘people’ who could be seen as sour losers.
And I don’t trust any military intervention. Sorry! I’ve lived too long in a country called Pakistan to know any different.
So let’s see what happens in that grand old country. It’s a country we need and a people we need to have empowered. Go Egypt!
In the meantime, as the dust settles, here’s a bit of Arabic pop from the one and only, former rude-boy of Egyptian music, Hamid el Shaeri.
