ScreenHunter_942 Nov. 25 15.29

If Cairo Came to Kabul

Before Tahrir Square happened almost nobody predicted that President Hosni Mubarak would be forced out of office by a movement that didn’t pick up a gun. Had President Barack Obama expected that outcome, he might have publicly backed Mubarak’s departure before, rather than after, Mubarak stepped down.

Egyptian Blockade of Gaza: The March for Liberation Coming February 26

Is there any sane, right-minded person who supports the blatant and brutal collective punishment of the people of Gaza? So why would it carry on? There is only one reason, because we allow it.

Dateline Egypt: The Facebook Generation vs. the 20th Century

What strikes me most strongly is that this Tunisnian, now Egyptian event is part a bigger grander major shift on the global political techtonics.

Many speak English and want to live in the global world. Yet our own US Government seems stuck between the 20th and 21st century, between what was and what is to come and it’s starting to look like we are missing the history boat. Maybe we are on the wrong side of historicial? Maybe the future is here and we can’t see it through our 20th century eyes?
