Christians Join Hands to Form a Ring of Protection Around Muslims While They Pray in the Streets of Egypt
Google News is presently posting 23,642 news articles covering the Egyptian uprising, which is the top news story in the world again for the 11th day. What’s different about day 11 is that protesters are now gathering in other neighboring countries to vent their rage and voice their support for the Egyptian protesters. In Iran, Turkey and on the West Bank of Israel protesters gathered to show their support for the Egyptian uprising against Mubarak. In one video posted below young Christians formed rings and locked hands to protect prostate Muslims while they prayed in the street. I never had seen an image like that, in my lifetime, until just a few minutes ago. It was dramatic and very moving.
To avoid igniting a Mideast conflagration of rage and violence, and a possible international firestorm as well, Mubarak needs to step down immediately. The situation is in the Mideast region is now getting worse by the day. I noted that a portrait of Barack Obama was burned along with photos and effigies of Mubarak. Here’s video coverage:
“What a difference a few city blocks can make. Crowds of hundreds of thousands upon thousands of Egyptians demonstrated peacefully on Friday, filling most of Cairo’s sprawling and once besieged Tahrir Square. They played music on loud speakers, danced and chanted “down with the dictator” in a rally dubbed “Day of Departure.”
But down the side streets leading east from Tahrir Square, just a few hundred meters away, fierce clashes raged between gangs of pro- and anti-regime youths.”
