  3. In Egypt, as of now, no internet & no mobile telephone service. Landlines are still up. Al-Jazeera was shut down today.

  4. Al Jazeera online has been keeping us upto date and my hubby has been able to contact his family by land line each day. They are fine and comforted by our prayers and the militaries pledge to do no harm to civilians.

    "Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements." Bahá'u'lláh

  9. Still praying, watching and waiting. Calling on family now in Egypt. May be to early we are not getting an answer. Our family has been staying locked in their homes ocassionally watching state sponsered news very much aware that they are not getting the whole story.

    They are reporting that things are calm in the areas outside of Cairo.

  12. Very sad to see the destruction, violence and mayhem. This is not the Egypt I know...very sad...very sad.... Egypt must find a way out of this disaster....

  13. Today, Egypt's new Prime-Minister apologized for yesterday's violent events and promised to investigate it fully. He then spoke very eloquently about the principle of consultation, showing a thorough understanding of how it should be conducted.

  14. I am grateful that the army did not harm the protesters.

    Many of these protesters are the same people who raised their voices defending the rights of minorities in Egypt, when the minorities did not have a voice yet, while other have a more defined view on who should Egypt be for! I hope that this experience made groups like Al- Akhawan Al-Muslimeen realize that the need for justice is universal! It is critical to have a peaceful solution that guarantees a safe life and basic human rights to all Egyptians including the protesters. How the government reacts and where Egypt goes after this movement is critical for not only Egypt and the region, but also the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with all Egyptians.
