Cairo Protests Continue: Fires Burning In The Streets (Video)

Anti-government protests have reached a fever pitch in Egypt, as tens of thousands of people demonstrate against President Hosni Mubarak and his totalitarian regime.

Just hours ago, Care2′s Robin Marty reported on the Egyptian governments shocking decision to force national service providers to shut down all international connections to the Internet.

Since this internet censorship limits accurate representations of the violence and mass arrests taking place, television and radio coverage has become even more important.

The AssociatedPress recently posted this video clip on YouTube with the following caption: As darkness fell in Cairo, fires were seen burning in the city. Egypt’s military deployed on the streets to enforce a nighttime curfew on a day of rioting and chaos. (Jan. 28)

Even without a commentators voice, the scenes of unrest are truly troubling.

Another Jew against another Pharaoh and all other dictators from Cairo to the corporate boardrooms, from the Middle East to the Midwest, and from Wall Street to every Main Street.

Mubarak and his thuggish cronies must go!

Violence never cured anything. Violins, on the other hand are far preferable.

Mubarak is setting Egypt on Fire(2)...


12. Ordered the military fighter-jets to revolve over the heads of the Egyptians and cover the sky of Egypt
13. Announced that he fired the cabinet of ministers yet orders and directions from Habib Adly (former Minster of Interior Forces) and Hussein Tantawy (former Minister of Military Forces) are being communicated on TV channels and taken effect

Mubarak turned Egypt into a big dungeon with an open roof covered with helicopters & fighter-jets. His message is loud & clear: I have all the strings in my hand, you Egyptians are just puppets and I’ll keep moving you to whichever way I want. I am the pharaoh and I am well supported inside & out.

Where is the rest of the world? Are you still watching? Isn’t it time to act yet? The voice of human rights that ignited the Egyptians isn’t loud enough to ignite the rest of the world? More listening can save the world massive conflicts and possible abuse and bloodshed.

A call to the entire world, we need to be more active to stand in the face of bullying. A call to the entire world, show your belief in human rights. A call to the entire world, enough silence.
