Egypt government feels its people's ire

Click on the pic to read my report on last weeks pro-Gaza demonstrations and crackdowns at Electronic Intifada. I originally wrote it last Wednesday but they've been quite busy over there for understandable reasons... Also, judging from the turnout at the demonstrations yesterday, the repression have had its intentended effect. Seeing the EU- and US-sponsored police state in full action without any reaction from the "international community" is depressing but hardly surprising. If Israel can bomb Gaza with impunity why would anyone care about Mubaraks gestapo beating up some demonstrators and journalists - aren't they all islamic fanatics anyway?
