Revolution in Egypt

The Big Picture blog has a historic collection of forty images from the past two days in Cairo. Demonstrators heard rumors that president Mubarak would step down Thursday. The Egyptian president then delivered a speech in which he announced he was staying in office. Finally, on Friday he resigned from the presidency. This picture was taken only hours ago, after Mubarak handed power over to the military. Link

Egyptians themselves lead peaceful marches, but many protesters are from other Islamic countries and are being sponsored with food, blankets, and encouraged to raise violence. Do you assume it'll transition into a legit democracy after the Muslim Brotherhood have taken over? It'll be as democratic as Iran where it's illegal to use the word "pizza" and the fault of women if they are raped. Shariah Law is not democratic folks. Like I said, get your perspective from somebody who is from Egypt.
