UPDATE: Decmber 8,2011 AND THE BETRAYAL CONTINUES
Unhappy ( as we all knew way back when would be the case) with the Muslim victories in the recent election and especially the demands for removal of “their man”, the President and Mrs. Clinton, are predictably supporting/facilitating/financing military action against Tahir protestors, again, and working diligently to prope their guy up.
Of course its all about the Camp David Accord..All about Israel..Te Muslim Brotherhood is aniti Isreal and has made that known from before, as outsiders with no represnttaion in parliament. Now they are in charge through a process of free and fair democratic elections. A muslim country now has a muslim government.
The U.S. should stand down..go talk to Israel . Israel is going to have to “stand down”, no? Be a little more relaistic about its political realities.

I felt a revulsion watching the images this morning of Secretary of State Clinton walking through a calm, palm filled sunlit Tahir Square pouring holy water on a tainted process betraying and undermining the real democracy sought by the young revolutionaries.In an interview with Andrea Mitchell she said “ I feel very good about what the Egyptians are doing. ” What the Egyptians are doing includes the army assisting thugs in Tahir Square to drive the young revolutionaries out and keep them out of the public eye. Human Rights Watch and journalists on the ground report beatings and detainments of young pople keeping quiet vigil in Tahir Square. http://www.hrw.org/en/news/2011/03/11/egypt-end-torture-military-trials-civilians .It includes the army’s order of a news blackout around the consitituional referendum this weekend.. I have always considered Hillary Clinton one of the most brilliant and courageous people in government, a true champion of justice, human rights, women’s rights. And there she was so far away in miles and spirit from the young radical Wellsely valedictorian http://www.wellesley.edu/PublicAffairs/Commencement/1969/053169hillary.html blessing this unholy sham of reform being carried out in Egypt. ..for the same reason we tolerated Mubarak ..to keep the Camp David Accord working at any price. She was essentially saying America would continue its aid to whatever new government emerged. But also she was attempting to convince the wolrd that the young revolutinaries had secured their victory. The upcoming referendum on constitutional amendments is a sham..a cut and paste to an illegitimate document that could not possibly support the creation of a modern democracy http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/354307. In the absence of clear public support,and without public comment of Saturday’s referendum her presence undermines the young freedom fighters of Tahir square who are urging a no vote on the referendum. . http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/352785 Only the Army, the anti-christian, anti-womens Rights Muslim Brotherhood and the ruling deeply befouled National Democratic Party are pushing for a favorable vote on the referendum. It their vehicle for securing their place in Egyptian rule.
Is it really possible that a people’s revolt witnessed by the world..supportd by the world, revered by the world can be hijacked and manipulated into silence..right before the world..and if that is possible what does it mean for us at home here in America? Does it mean the plutonomy is now immune to a populist awakening? We are all stakeholders in what becomes of Egypts Revolution.
