The PRO-GOV demonstrators are ALL policemen so they are just “fake” hired thugs.

The ANTI-GOV demonstrators are ALL freedom loving citizens.

Brian Williams just told me so.

Geeezzzz...

Now back to regular FR programing.

Something very prophetic about this whole thing - and not just Egypt, but all the countries surrounding Israel. Something I feel has been set in motion. I may just have to dust off all of those end-times books I bought back in the 1970’s.

1534: BBC world affairs editor John Simpson, in Tahrir Square, says: “I am among a group of Mubarak supporters. They have been preparing all sorts of weapons - pulling down iron railings, breaking up paving stones - and using them against anti-government protesters. There has been a kind of counter-attack by the pro-Mubarak groups, who are determined to force the remaining protesters out of the square. The soldiers are right here, sitting on their tanks, looking on and occasionally taking shelter, but are not trying to intervene. People know the army is not going to fire on either side, so their presence is not intimidating. The Mubarak supporters are forcing their way into the square through all the main entrances, and trying to force out the protesters gathered there.”

1524: Ibrahim Zadran, co-ordinator of the opposition National Association for Change and an ally of Mohamed ElBaradei, tells the BBC: “We are asking the army to defend us. It’s their job to do that. Today, 15 people were shot in Tahrir Square by government supporters using live ammunition. We are a peaceful group looking for justice and democracy. Nothing else.”

1523: I R in Cairo writes: “I just came back from Tahrir Square, supporting Mubarak to continue his term. I am not an NDP member, never voted and never participated in a demonstration before last week. Ninety per cent of our demands have been met. Enough demonstrations. We need a smooth transition of power.”

Has anybody heard any estimates at all of crowd size today?

It seems like the crowds are small, but that may be just because the TV cameras are limited in their views.

It’s not the “egyptians” turning on each other. The police force (not military) have donned plain clothes and are out stirring up trouble for Mubarak. Those camel’s and horses are literally the police force’s “cavalry”.

Bingo!

My thinking is that the MB was sending in the camels and the whips to stir up frenzy. Then the army (Mubarak) had no choice but go in with tear gas. That makes the army looks bad after which the MB, backed by Obama, will save the day. Voila, islamic thugocracy established. Mission accomplished.

Let’s not forget that Obama has already said that the MB is a viable partner or some such. Let’s tie him to his words. He’s on record.

“Something very prophetic about this whole thing - and not just Egypt, but all the countries surrounding Israel.”

I agree. I was looking up the people groups listed in the prophecy in Psalm 83 and I was shocked.

Lebanon, Jordan, Arabs (in general), to name a few. And it’s interesting to note that Hezbollah has taken over the Lebanese government and that there are protests in Jordan.

King Abdullah II has (I think) been historically friendly to the West and I’m not sure what the Jordanian people think of him now, but if he falls and radicals take over Jordan....all of Israel’s neighbors will be controlled by radicals.

Psalm 83[a]
A song. A psalm of Asaph.
1 O God, do not remain silent;
do not turn a deaf ear,
do not stand aloof, O God.
2 See how your enemies growl,
how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.
4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

5 With one mind they plot together;
they form an alliance against you—
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
of Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Byblos, Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
8 Even Assyria has joined them
to reinforce Lot’s descendants.[b]

9 Do to them as you did to Midian,
as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
10 who perished at Endor
and became like dung on the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 who said, “Let us take possession
of the pasturelands of God.”

13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
like chaff before the wind.
14 As fire consumes the forest
or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15 so pursue them with your tempest
and terrify them with your storm.
16 Cover their faces with shame, LORD,
so that they will seek your name.

17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
may they perish in disgrace.
18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD—
that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

“Mubarak may have more support than the media is letting on.”

“You get further with a kind word and a gun, than with a kind word alone” Alphonso Capone

It isn’t so much who has more supporters, it is who has more supporters with GUNS.

I give the edge, so far, to Mubarak. When the tanks and arms are on the other side I will change my opinion.

Two things to note.

This is a CITY uprising. The farmers etc are not evident.

Bad development when they turn on each other. Means the cops and the Army will have to pick sides.

How soon is it before nightfall. I predict that after the sun goes down many of the members of the Egyptian Army will take off their uniforms and join the pro-Mubarak mob. Thats when the real headcracking will start. I hope that we've got all of the Americans out of Egypt by now.
