lebih kurang sepanduk itu berbunyi ” Apa yang telah dilakukan oleh Israel terhadap rakyat Palestin itulah juga yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Hosni Mubarak terhadap rakyat Mesir”…
Maybe pemegang sepanduk ni berasal dari daerah Fayyum, Daerah Fayyum ini ditindas teruk oleh regim Mubarak yang merupakan kubu kedua terbesar Ikhwanul Muslimin selepas dari Suez
Egypt’s army promises no force against protesters
CAIRO – Egypt’s military pledged not to fire on protesters in a sign that army support for President Hosni Mubarak may be unraveling on the eve of a major escalation — a push for a million people to take to the streets Tuesday to demand the authoritarian leader’s ouster.
More than 10,000 people beat drums, played music and chanted slogans in Tahrir Square, which has become the epicenter of a week of protests demanding an end to Mubarak’s three decades in power.
With the organizers’ calling for a “march of a million people,” the vibe in the sprawling plaza — whose name in Arabic means “Liberation” — was of an intensifying feeling that the uprising was nearing a decisive point.
“He only needs a push!” was one of the most frequent chants, and a leaflet circulated by some protesters said it was time for the military to choose between Mubarak and the people.
The latest gesture by Mubarak aimed at defusing the crisis fell flat. His top ally, the United States, roundly rejected his announcement of a new government Monday that dropped his highly unpopular interior minister, who heads police forces and has been widely denounced by the protesters.
The crowds in the streets were equally unimpressed.
“It’s almost the same government, as if we are not here, as if we are sheep,” sneered one protester, Khaled Bassyouny, a 30-year-old Internet entrepreneur. He said it was time to escalate the marches. “It has to burn. It has to become ugly. We have to take it to the presidential palace.”
Another concession came late Monday, when Vice President Omar Suleiman — appointed by Mubarak only two days earlier — went on state TV to announce the offer of a dialogue with “political forces” for constitutional and legislative reforms.AP
