Uprising in Egypt Will End Mubarak Tyranny

Egypt Unrest: Video of police killing teen protester, riots aftermath
This video shows the Egyptian police shooting a teenage protestor in cold blood.
The uprising in Tunisia has spread to Egypt, the most populous and important nation of the Arab world. Massive protests with tens of thousands of people have also broken out in Yemen. Having followed the developments in Tunisia closely on the BBC World Service, I noticed an attitude of unusual concern by the BBC toward the popular uprising that overthrew the Tunisian dictator Ben Ali. When similar uprisings have happened in Eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union they have invariably been praised and promoted as a sign of the progress of western democracy. This supportive attitude, however, was not seen in the BBC coverage uprising in Tunisia. The first question asked (with some concern) of every commentator was always, "Will the unrest in Tunisia spread to Egypt and other Arab nations?"
One got the distinct impression that the BBC is somehow afraid of democracy in the Arab world. Their attitude seems to be that the people of the Middle East do not have the same right to demand democratic governments as the people of Europe. Decades of U.S. (and British) support for dictators like Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak and the refusal of the U.S. and the "international community" to accept the democratically elected Hamas government of Palestine are proof (if any were needed) that the U.S. government does not really support democracy in the Arab world. Dictators are, after all, so much easier to control. Having fostered and supported virtually every dictator in the Middle East, the U.S. regime now finds itself wrong-footed and in an increasingly weakened position in the region. These popular uprisings will have profound consequences on U.S. stature and policies in the region.

The naysaying pundits on the BBC notwithstanding, the growing intifada in Cairo and across Egypt has shown that the popular revolt is spreading and will not be put down by Mubarak and his security forces. The writing on the wall is clear - the many long years of Hosni Mubarak's brutal tyranny are over. The dictators across the region are now planning their own escapes. A new day is dawning in the Middle East and there will be no going back to the darkness of the days of the dictators. The protests that are rocking the Middle East today will eventually result in great changes for the people of the entire region by ending the decades of tyranny imposed on their nations by the Zionist-controlled regimes of the United States, Britain, and Israel. "A new day is dawning"?? That may well be, but rest asured that the centuries old Imperialistic cunning of the Queen's British government will do its utmost to prevent that day coming unless they agree with every thing.Whatever Monarchical Britain might say publicly, it must be remembered by the people of Egypt and elsewhere in the region, that war-mongering Britain will be acting in its own interest. Just take a hard look at our occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan for confirmation. William Gladys.
ISRAEL IN "STATE OF STRATEGIC DISTRESS"
The overthrow of the Mubarak dictatorship puts Israel in "a state of strategic distress", according to Aluf Benn of Ha'aretz: "The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse."
