The State of the... Middle East
Something amazing is happening in the Middle East. Revolution in Tunisia, directly threatening US (and Israeli) support of dictators; the resistance in Lebanon flexing its muscles; the amazing revelations from Al-Jazeera about the U.S., Israel and Fatah teaming up to sell out the Palestinian people; the Israeli government's whitewash about the Mavi Marmara. And now in Egypt. I'll compose my thoughts on all this in an upcoming post but meanwhile watch this incredible video just filmed in Egypt, as demonstrators stare down a police water cannon...shades of Tienanmen. Amazing and inspiring. First seen on Mondoweiss.
