The longer the US keeps on propping up the rotten Mobarek regime the more the probability of an Islamic Revolution. The braindead US policy makers have learnt NOTHING from the Iranian revolution of 1979.

This is an Arab revolution, which makes it islamic by default.

With all due respect to Iranians of 1979, who made a miraculous achievement this is inspired by the people's own frustration, and critically by the heroic actions of the tunisian people.

As an Israeli newspaper said, this will give birth to a new middle east, one that champions human dignity be it in Tunis, Cairo, Gaza and the West Bank.

Indeed the Arabs need to end their humiliation by the Zionists/US and its lackeys. More power to the Arab and Muslims.

Interesting to read the Zionist view in Haaretz:

If Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak is toppled, Israel will lose one of its very few friends in a hostile neighborhood and President Barack Obama will bear a large share of the blame, Israeli pundits said on Monday.

Political commentators expressed shock at how the United States as well as its major European allies appeared to be ready to dump a staunch strategic ally of three decades, simply to conform to the current ideology of political correctness.

Netanyahu instructed Israeli ambassadors in a dozen key capitals over the weekend to impress on host governments that Egypt's stability is paramount, official sources said.

"Jordan and Saudi Arabia see the reactions in the West, how everyone is abandoning Mubarak, and this will have very serious implications," Haaretz daily quoted one official as saying.

There have been no peace treaties since. Lebanon and Syria are still technically at war with Israel. Conservative Gulf Arab regimes have failed to advance their peace ideas. A confident resurgent Iran has greatly increased its influence in the Middle East conflict.

Nervousness and near panic in Israel over the turmoil in Egypt stands in sharp contrast with jubilation and self-satisfaction in Iran. Whereas for Tehran pent-up popular anger is an opportunity to break US hegemony in the region as the United States drops the ball on the nuclear issue, the biggest worry for Tel Aviv in losing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak - its only "friend" in a hostile Middle East - is that the new realities may compel America to reset its regional sights as US economic power diminshes and its military entanglements in Iraq and Af-Pak bleed the dying US economy to a premature death.

The most important point these "western" Islmophobes forget is sheer weight of demographics. The Muslim world has the most youthful (average age 17 years) and increasingly better educated population. Even by very conservative and wishful "western" guesstimates Muslims will number over 3 billion people by 2030 or almost 30% of the global population. The real numbers will be closer to 35-40% at least.

The US has supported the worst despotic regimes and planted the cancer of Zionism in the heart of the Muslim world and Arab lands. This insane and humiliating situation was untenable to begin with and now with China/Asia's rise and awakening in the Muslim world the brutal neo-colonial post-Yalta 'world order" imposed by US guns and savagery has run its course. Iranian revolution was the catalyst in Muslim awakening. The sheer resiliance of Iranian revolution despite every US/Zionist effort to destabilize it has been a source of great inspiration to all Muslims and people yearning for freedom from these "western" thugs and global looters. The fires of freedom lit at Tehrir (Azadi-Freedom) square in Cairo are not going to be put out. The sheer thought of a real democracy in the Muslim world sends shivers down the facist US police state. Banning and censoring the truth from Al-Jazeera, Al-Manar and Press TV does not work anymore.

Pax-ZionAmerica has run definately its course.

Syrian President Bashar al Asad's perspective in Wall Street Journal:

Iran is an shining light for all Muslims.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has hailed Iran's Islamic Revolution, saying it has launched a new era in the Middle East.

"It is a new era, but it did not start now. It started with the Iranian revolution,” said Assad in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, which appeared on the US daily on Monday.

“What is new is that it is happening inside independent countries in the Arab world," he underlined.

Assad's comments came after Tunisia's recent revolution ended the 23-year-long rule of the country's President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and sent him fleeing to Saudi Arabia.

Heartened by the movement, people have started anti-government protests in Yemen, Jordan and Egypt, which is witnessing the most determined demonstrations in the region.

Assad reminded how people in Iraq staged a revolution against the executed dictator Saddam Hussein in 1991, but "it was oppressed with the support of the United States especially in the south." "They…allowed him to oppress the people in the south, the Shias at that time,” he recalled.

The Syrian leader said his country is stable despite all difficult conditions imposed by the West, suggesting that Syria owes its stability to poor relations with Washington.

"Egypt...enjoys financial support from the United States while Syria is under embargo by most countries of the world," he noted. "They tell you move faster and at the same time they impose an embargo."

Assad also advised the Arab states in the region "to upgrade yourself with the upgrading of the society."

Syria's president also called on Arab leaders "to improve your relations with every country and not to make it worse with any country, especially in an area where we need a big country like Iran."

"It is a big country, it is important, it is geo-politically an important country; nobody can overlook Iran whether you like it or not, this is the first point,” he added.

You are correct. Iran's astute diplomacy and soft power is paying
great dividends as the Arab and Muslims world awakes after a century of neo-imperialism and Zionist "divide and rule".

Iran says Egypt events herald Islamic Middle East

Iran says Egypt unrest echoes its 1979 Islamic revolution

* Iran opposition says it inspired Egyptian protests

* Analysts say Mubarak's fall would benefit Iran

* Tehran taunts Washington for wavering over Egypt

By Hossein Jaseb

TEHRAN, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Iran said on Monday it hopes mass anti-government protests in Egypt will lead to the emergence of a more Islamic Middle East that will stand up to its enemies, Israel and the United States.

The Islamic Republic, locked in a standoff with the West over its nuclear programme, sees gains for its own geopolitical influence in the region if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. and Israeli ally, is swept aside.

But Iranian opposition politicians, encouraged by scenes of "people power" in Tunis and Cairo, are hoping they will prompt Tehran's hardline rulers to allow greater freedom at home.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast, setting out Iran's official stance, said the people of Egypt and Tunisia had left foreign powers "bewildered" by rising up against U.S.-backed governments.

"With (the region) assuming a new shape and the developments under way, (we hope) we would be able to see a Middle East that is Islamic and powerful and also that withstands the Zionist occupiers," he told a weekly news conference, using Iran's term for Israel, which it does not recognise.

Iran has praised the Egyptian protests, saying they echo the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the U.S.-backed Shah.

Human Rights organization blames Zionists for arming Mobarek thugs and repression of Egyptians.

The International Network for Rights and Development has claimed that Israeli logistical support has been sent to Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to help his regime confront demonstrations demanding that he steps down as head of state. According to reports by the non-governmental organisation, three Israeli planes landed at Cairo's Mina International Airport on Saturday carrying hazardous equipment for use in dispersing and suppressing large crowds.

In the statement circulated by the International Network, it was disclosed that Egyptian security forces received the complete cargoes on three Israeli planes which were, it is claimed, carrying an abundant supply of internationally proscribed gas to disperse unwanted crowds. If the reports are accurate, this suggests that the Egyptian regime is preparing for the worse in defence of its position, despite the country sinking into chaos.

Egyptian leaders of the opposition and partys should avoid presenting themselves to interested US or other western powers for the assurances they seek.

They (oppositions)should keep a low profile because the Westerners actually want to know who to kill and who to promote later when Mobaraks been sacked.

Looks like Mobarek's latest pathetic attempt to hang on to power and defuse the revolution was a script written by the Zionist "ambassador" Wisner who was dispatched like Huyser was in 1979 to shore up the "shah". His latest speech was an insult to the intelligence of all rational people, not least the Egyptians who have chafed under his corrupt rule.

I don't think the Egyptian people are that stupid to be manipulated by the US/Zionist psy-ops machine just to buy time and calm the oppposition down. This US tactic will only inflame the sitaution more resulting in the evental storming of Mobarak's palace and putting him to flight. This delusional puppet MUST GO NOW.
