Unfortunately there is no shortage of women sexually attacked in Egypt - also by the Egyptian army.

The new "state security" agnecy will comply with international human rights standards ? maybe when libya exports ice.

No. There is a difference between criticism and hate.

Criticism = Constructive opinion
Hate = Sarcasm and bashing

I will let you decide what you really are / feel.

Mubarak/Saadat/Nasser have had their glorious moments in history, and if you don't know it you can just start reading some history books, though we decided to change in a more civilized manner, and we definitely do not need someone to tell us what problems we have cause we know it and we're working on solving them.

Thank you for your input.

He's apprehensive for Israelis, when to trust and when not to trust, who to trust and who not to trust. I wouldn't trust Amr Moussa and I certainly wouldn't trust Netanyahu niot even as a Jew. I think that they are both too self-seeking. Netanyahu fears ElBaradei, but I believe he is the only one who can bring lasting peace. For Israel it may be worth giving up gains built on illegal grounds for a settled stabile Middle- East.

Re: Egypt "Jan 25 - Day of revolution" [Update: Mubarak resigns]

Do you two ever mix up the topic across both the threads?

Probably not, because its the same topic, isn't it?

What would be funny is if you were flame fighting on one, and totally in agreement in another. Get it a try!

Of course - my farm in South sudan is exporting them. They are very easy to keep: feed them one tourist per day, but no scuba divers - it gives them gas.

"He explained that the Mossad wanted him to report on opinions, information and any events taking place in Egypt" - Why should the mossad pay someone to provide information which can be read online ?

Poor guy - probably an innocent business man paying the price for Egyptian paranoia.

He wasn't providing public information, this guy was gathering economical information regarding the stock market, businesses and surveying army deployments, if you don't believe me you can always contact Mossad to ask them why they wanna pay for that

P.S: My sources are the officials who arrested him who happen to be my friends, that's how i knew before he were even arrested.

Stock market & businesses are public info and nowhere in your news sources is army deployment mentioned.

Unless of course we are talking about the deployment of the Virginity checkers of Tahrir square - hardly a secret what their deployment is.

Your friends caught an innocent guy and tortured a confession out of him - so much for "international human rights".

The Egyptian security services are such proffesionals - blabbering to their friends before they arrest "spies".

Problem is that "confessions" are not as convincing as they once were.

If someone approached my private parts with a red hot poker I would "confess" to anything & everything they asked.

& contrarywise in the absence of a red hot poker then I would not confess to anything.
