Protests continue unabated throughout Egypt demanding the end of the Mubarak Regime’s role, less than 24 hours after Mubarak asked everyone in his government except for himself to resign. Omar Suleiman was appointed Vice President today, Ahmed Shafik Prime Minister, to the continuing protests of the people. Meanwhile, Abbas and other jittery Arab leaders called to express their support for Mubarak, and the Israelis and Americans have expressed their concern for stability in the region (screw freedom). An unidentified Israeli minister quoted in Time Magazine put it best: “”I’m not sure the time is right for the Arab region to go through the democratic process.”
I’ve been following Twitter for the past couple of days, and compiled some of the funniest tweets on the situation.
