    The latest developments in Egypt, where anti-government protests continue (hit your "refresh" button to be sure you're seeing our latest additions):

    Update at 10:48 a.m. ET: Navi Pillay, the U.N. human rights chief, released a statement saying Egypt has arrested more than 1,000 people during the ongoing protests. Pillay called on the government to respect the people's right to express themselves:

    "'I call on the Government to take concrete measures to guarantee the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and expression, including by restoring free use of mobile phones and social networks,' she said."

    I just received a call from a friend in Cairo (I won't say who it is now because he's a prominent activist) telling me neither his DSL nor his USB internet service is working. I've just checked with two other friends in different parts of Cairo and their internet is not working either.

    CAIRO – Thousands of anti-government protesters wielding rocks, glass and sticks chased hundreds of riot police away from the main square in downtown Cairo and several of the policemen stripped off their uniforms and badges and joined the demonstrators.

    An Associated Press reporter saw the protesters cheering the police who joined them and hoisting them on their shoulders in one of the many dramatic and chaotic scenes across Egypt on Friday.

    After chasing the police, thousands of protesters were able to flood into the huge Tahrir Square downtown after being kept out most of the day by a very heavy police presence. Few police could be seen around the square after the confrontation.

    Al Jazeera are running live on it - this will be a wake-up call for the US and banksters.
    The normally compliant and sleepy Egyption public, men, women, children and even gramps are getting stuck in.

    Interesting to see them all go quiet to stop for prayers, then the Police starting throwing teargas into the crowds of people praying..

    Very convenient because it looks like the revolution is on .
    Hillary Clinton advise the demonstrators to avoid violence . The same message for the authorities . Yet she is part of a government that did not speak about the condition of the population in Egypt for 30 years . Now that the puppet regime is under pressure Hillary talks about human rights ! The same human rights ignored in Guantanamo Bay, Iraq , Afghanistan etc by the US.
    How is it possible not to be violent with a regime that keeps enslaved the population for 30 years ?
    OFF with the heads of the torturers and puppets of the Washington's criminals . I enjoy every minute watching the US empire collapse .

    Syria Internet Down As Egypt Blackout Catches On In Middle East
    (Friday, January 28th, 2011)


    http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/General+News/82156/Reports%3A-Syria-Internet-Down-As-Egypt-Blackout-Catches-On-In-Middle-East.html

    On the same day that Egypt has suspended online activity, Syria has also blocked internet service.

    Syria is known for a tight control of the internet, which was tightened further after the unrest in TUnisia, reports Reuters. Now, Al Arabiya is reporting that internet services have gone down completely in the country.

    Egypt’s online services have reportedly been down since last night as the country’s deadly protests geared up for what was planned as the largest day of protests so far.

    Iran cleric: Mideast unrest replay of our 1979 Islamic revolution
    Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said protests in Egypt, Tunisia show the era of 'Western-backed dictators' in the Arab world is over.
    28/01/2011


    http://www.haaretz.com/news/international/iran-cleric-mideast-unrest-replay-of-our-1979-islamic-revolution-1.339796

    The "aftershock" of Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution was now rocking Egypt and other Arab states, a senior ayatollah said in the Friday prayer ceremony in Tehran.

    "I herewith proclaim to those (Western leaders) who still do not want to see the realities that the political axis of the new Middle East will soon be Islamic rulership and a democracy based on religion," Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said.

    "All these protests in Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan and Yemen are inspired by Iran's Islamic revolution and these countries are de facto rocked by the aftershock of the Iranian revolution," the ultra-conservative cleric added.

    The ayatollah said that the era of "Western-backed dictators" in the Arab world was over and the people have entered the scene with the slogan of Allaha Akbar (God is Great), which Khatami said.

    A surge of popular protests over police and government repression and poverty swept Tunisia earlier in the month and sent their veteran leader from power, sending a chill through unpopular authoritarian governments across the Arab world. This first ousting has led to a wave of protests throughout the Arab world, with citizens holding anti-government demonstrations and demanding reform. Protests continued in Egypt for the fourth day, despite at least 5 protesters being killed in clashes with police since the protests began.

    Worldwide protests back Egypt uprising
    Fri Jan 28, 2011

    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/162430.html

    Hundreds of people around the world have held demonstrations near Egyptian embassies to support the ongoing protests against President Hosni Mubarak.

    In Turkey, groups of people gathered outside the Egyptian Embassy in Ankara in a show of solidarity with protesters in Egypt.

    In London, demonstrators called on the Egyptian authorities to avoid the use of force against protesters.

    In the Tunisian capital of Tunis, a similar rally was held in front of the Egyptian Embassy to support the uprising in Egypt.

    "We are here to say that the Tunisian people are behind the Egyptian people. They have suffered in the way that we suffered. It's time for change," AFP quoted one protester as saying.

    A demonstration is also expected in Germany to show solidarity with Egyptian protesters.

    Egyptian security forces have clashed with protesters in the capital Cairo and several other cities where rallies are held against the government of Mubarak.

    Thousands of protesters have defied an overnight curfew and to stay on Cairo's streets.

    The Egyptian government initially announced an overnight curfew in the districts of greater Cairo, Alexandria and Suez. But later it was extended to the whole country.

    Security forces have been replaced with army troops on the streets of Alexandria while reports say security forces have opened fire on thousands of protesters in Suez.

    Latest reports say at least five people have been killed during Friday's protests, bringing to 14 the number of those killed in the unrest. Scores of others have been wounded in the massive protests.

    Egypt's largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood, earlier called on all Egyptians to take to the streets. Sources say the opposition leaders brace for massive arrests across the country.

    The Egyptian government has cut all cell-phone and Internet services amid anti-government demonstrations that began after the Friday prayers.

    The army has also been brought in and military vehicles are seen on the streets of the capital following violent clashes between police and protesters.

    Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei was among other top figures, who attended the rally.

    Reports say ElBaradei has been placed under house arrest after joining the massive anti-government protests in Cairo.

    Security forces initially prevented ElBaradei from leaving a mosque in Giza.
    The mosque was under siege for several hours before ElBaradei was put under house arrest.

    ElBaradei has said he would help head a transitional government if Mubarak steps down.

    Many more people including opposition activists have been arrested. Protesters want an end to the decades-long rule of Mubarak.

    Is U.S. behind Egyptian protests? Diplomatic cable reveals State Department supported leading dissident who wanted regime change
    By WIL LONGBOTTOM
    29th January 2011


    Cable published on WikiLeaks shows U.S. government lobbied for release of dissident prisoners

    The U.S. government has been supporting leading figures behind the violent protests in Egypt in a bid to promote regime change, it has been revealed.
    A 2008 diplomatic cable leaked by the WikiLeaks site outlines how the U.S. State Department supported a pro-democracy activist and lobbied for the release of dissidents from custody.
    The unnamed activist presented an 'unwritten plan for democratic transition in 2011' at a summit in New York and met with U.S. members of congress.
    One aspect of the plan was for 'a transition to a parliamentary democracy before the scheduled 2011 presidential elections', the Jerusalem Post reported.
    It comes after the death toll in the violent clashes between anti-government protesters and police hit 62.

    Protests Spread To Saudi Arabia
    01/29/2011



    While the biggest threat to the Middle East region is the possibility that the population of Saudi Arabia may try to imitate what has been happening in the area, thereby bringing total chaos to the established regional geopolitical and more importantly, energy, structure, the first protests in the Saudi Arabia city of Jeddah are already in the books. The clip below shows the peaceful demonstrations that have taken place recently, which as Fedupmontrealer explains are "taking place in front of the Municipality in protest of the severe lack of infrastructure, and corruption, that led the city to be inundated this week causing billions of dollars of damages for the second time in two years." That this is even occurring in a state where the average wealth is orders of magnitude greater than in Egypt is remarkable. On the other hand, we expect more news such as those from yeserday that Kuwait is paying its citizens $3,500 plus free food for a year to keep calm. Oddly, visions of money dropping helicopters, infinitely extendable unemployment insurance and tax breaks keep dancing in our head. Those who wish to follows the latest developments out of Jedda which appears could be the lightning rod for Saudi riots can do so by tracking #JeddahProtests on Twitter.

    There are two interesting articles on Globalresearch . One is about the new " Vice president " who is a very friendly with the CIA. The other article is about young people trained in the US as successor to President Mubarack . All very suspicious stuff . All very good reasons to suspect that the revolution might not be genuine . Until I see the USA embassies sacked and destroyed I will seat on the fence . The controller of the dictator Mubarack are in Washington . Until the links with the criminals state " par escllence " are severed ,I can assume that " revolutions in the ME are " colored revolutions " = manipulated .

    Egypt protests: America's secret backing for rebel leaders behind uprising


    "The American government secretly backed leading figures behind the Egyptian uprising who have been planning “regime change” for the past three years, The Daily Telegraph has learned.

    The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police.

    On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011.

    The secret document in full

    He has already been arrested by Egyptian security in connection with the demonstrations and his identity is being protected by The Daily Telegraph."

    The CIA's Role in Egypt's Regime Change? Who Is Omar Suleiman?

    by Jane Mayer

    "One of the “new” names being mentioned as a possible alternative to President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Omar Suleiman, is actually not so new to anyone who has followed the American policy of renditions for terror suspects. After dissolving his cabinet yesterday, Mubarak appointed Suleiman vice-president, and according to many commentators he is poised to be a potential successor, and an alternative to Mubarak’s son and intended heir until now, Gamal Mubarak. Suleiman is a well-known quantity in Washington. Suave, sophisticated, and fluent in English, he has served for years as the main conduit between the United States and Mubarak. While he has a reputation for loyalty and effectiveness, he also carries some controversial baggage from the standpoint of those looking for a clean slate on human rights. "

    U.S. demonstrations show support for Egyptian movement
    By the CNN Wires Staff
    January 30, 2011


    (CNN) -- Saturday saw protests across the United States, held to express solidarity with the anti-government demonstrations currently roiling Egypt. Whether on the East Coast or the West Coast, crowds carried banners, flags and signs as they chanted, hoping their support could be felt thousands of miles away in Cairo, Alexandria and other Egyptian cities.

    In San Francisco, demonstrators gathered at a corner on Market Street and quickly packed the sidewalk, waving Egyptian and American flags. Participants seemed to represent a rainbow of backgrounds and ages. There were elderly couples, teenagers and children with Egypt's colors painted on their faces. Many Egyptian-Americans were there, enlivening the chants with Arabic phrases. But plenty of people of Latin, Caucasian and Asian descent also turned out to march, support Egyptian demonstrators and demand the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.

    Among the call-and-response chants came a reference to recent protests in Tunisia: "Oh Mubarak, can't you see? Time to join Ben Ali."

    In Seattle, traditional Egyptian melodies were heard among the chants and slogans. One man who led the chorus of old songs was impressed by the Egyptian movement's use of social media. "Thanks to new technology and new communications, the people from Facebook and Twitter, we are able to come together and make this happen. All the young people ... they feel like sometimes there is no chance. But you see this and think ... there is a chance."

    There was a small demonstration in Texas outside the Egyptian Consulate building in Houston. It seemed to be a family affair, with small children flashing peace signs as their families waved flags and signs. "They need everyone to hear them," one demonstrator told CNN affiliate KIAH. "That's the only way we can get change. It's not going to come from within, it's going to come from outside. That's why we're out here now."

    Egyptian-Americans gathered in Toledo, Ohio, too. They waved Egyptian flags and carried signs that read "Defend Democracy" and "Defend Human Rights." Although only a handful of people braved the cold, nearly every passing car honked in support.

    On the East Coast, hundreds gathered outside the United Nations in New York. They held up signs that read: "Mubarak Regime MUST GO," "Egypt's Struggle Is Our Struggle!" and "Egypt -- We Hear You!"

    Meanwhile, they yelled out in unison, "Hey! Hey! Ho! Ho! Mubarak must go!"

    Sharif Sadek, a young Egyptian-American filmmaker in the New York crowd, said the ouster of the Egyptian leader is the only acceptable outcome. He urged U.S. leaders to make this happen.

    "The United States can urge Mubarak to step down and leave the country. Go to Switzerland. Go to South Africa. Go to the moon. We do not want President Mubarak," Sadek said.

    In Washington, protesters assembled outside the Egyptian Embassy before heading to the White House. One protester held up a cardboard sign that read: "Pharaoh! Let the people go!"

    Sam Abouissa, a protest organizer who said his brothers were arrested in Egypt while protesting, said he walked door-to-door in the capital to solicit support from fellow Egyptians.

    "We need freedom. We need freedom on the Internet. Freedom of communications. Freedom of expressing our opinion. Freedom of life. Freedom of choice," Abouissa said. "We have to choose. We have to be free to choose."

    Anti-Mubarak demonstrations were scheduled to take place in locations across the United States on Sunday too.
