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.

Palestine Chronicle

The news that Omar Sulaiman had a hot line to the Israeli government, that he was Israel's choice as president, even over Mubarak, and that he invited Israel to invade Sinai if it thought it could stop arms smuggling to Gaza, should surprise noone, but these revelations from the Wikileaks cables underline the rottenness of the Egyptian regime and the need to replace it without delay and without qualification.

The businessmen and politicians who have amassed immense wealth are inextricable parts of the same ruling class. They will hang on to power until the bitter end because of their property and because of the revelations already spilling into the public about their wealth, their means of acquiring it and their business partners in Israel and the US. Some have already fled. Those who have stayed – and some cannot leave now because of travel bans issued as a 'concession' to the protesters - are likely to face prosecution and lose their wealth. They are the equivalent of Sadat's 'fat cats' except they are probably even fatter but they are all part of the regime and  the system the US is determined to preserve, whatever Obama and Clinton say in public about meeting the 'hopes and aspirations' of the Egyptian people. Central to their thinking is Israel. An independent Egypt will have no problems in dealing with the US except for Israel, and on this question a separation from the policies of the past three decades is inevitable.
