Egyptian Transition to Chaos - from Gayle Mahon
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (ah-muh-DEE'-neh-zhahd) says Egypt's popular uprising shows a new Middle East is emerging, one that will have no signs of Israel and U.S. "interference." He spoke as his country marks the 32nd anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Shortly after this statement, Mubarak has given the "protesters" what they wanted - he resigned. Who will fill the vacuum left by his presidency? There is only one group organized enough to do that - the Muslim Brotherhood. For inquiring minds who have been confused who to support in Egypt - why would Iran's Ahmadinejad support the "Democracy movement" in Egypt? Where was he when his own people were, peacefully, in the streets crying out for freedom? He was busy ordering their imprisonment and/or slaughter. May God have mercy on this world.
