According to BBC Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has described events in Egypt as a “pivot” that could move the “whole of the Middle East” towards democracy.
Is that a wishful thinking?
Probably. If one excludes Israel from this list of future democratic Middle East it might work.
I seriously doubt that Israel and its policy of destroying Palestinian dream of independent country will not ever go away, nor will Israel give back the occupied territories and move back to the borders from 1967.
What else do I doubt?
I doubt that Egyptian Revolution will achieve its demands for a democratic system, taking to consideration the generals who govern Egypt now.
They all come from the stable of Mubarak, they are their product and he is still their leader, even after being pushed aside by the protesters in Cairo, Alexandria and other cities in Egypt.
Egypt’s military leaders dissolved parliament and suspended the constitution Sunday, and declared that they will run the country for six months until presidential and parliamentary elections could be held.
Should we expect a formation of new political parties that would take over the political part of Egyptian life?
This unpaved process will take a long time while everything is being done both in Tel Aviv and Washington D.C. to keep the status quo of fragile balance of power of both sides of the Nile.
Some revolutions in the past history were overtaken by mini revolutions just like in Russia.
Mensheviks won the revolution and were defeated by Bolsheviks who changed the country to enormous gulag, enslaving also neighboring countries.
So what has changed in Egypt since Mubarak was ousted?
“There is no change in the form, method or process of work. Matters are completely stable,” stated Shafik at the press conference .
This statement infuriated the protesters that crowded again the Liberation Square and do not intend to leave until the civilian authority is established and democratic system implemented.
Clashes have erupted between the army and the protesters.
Supreme Council of the Armed Forces insists on rulling the country for the next six months until the new election and the protesters want democracy here and now.
Is it a mini revolution within the Revolution for democracy? The time will show.
