First Tunisia, now Egypt ?!! After the fall of the Tunisian president Ben Ali, there is definitely a growing concern amongst the unelected Arab rulers about who will be the next one.This is certainly the case of the unelected 82 years old dictator, Hosni Mubarak, who the U.S and other western goverment label as a good allie in maintening the Midle East stable. In recent days, thousands of people have gone to the streets demanding the end of Mubarak`s regime. In responce, Mubarak`s regime started a violent crackdown on protesters, which resulted in hundreds of arrests and at least 10 protesters killed.
The key questions for me are :
a) Will the protesters ( youth in particular) let themselves be intimidated by the regimes violent crackdown ?
b) Will the army support the regime ? Or will the army support the people of Egypt?
c) Will the opposition political movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood take this life time opportunity to bring down the Mubarak regime.
I personally hope the protesters will prevail, and Muslim Brotherhood will help end Mubarak`s 30 years rule.
