  1. Anderson Cooper In Hiding In Egypt, Says He’s ‘Scared’

    After two straight days of being attacked on the streets of Cairo, Anderson Cooper brought viewers his Thursday show from an undisclosed, dimly lit room, saying that he was “a little bit scared” for his safety.

    Cooper was punched repeatedly and attacked for minutes by a mob of supporters of President Hosni Mubarak on Wednesday. On Thursday, another group of pro-government forces smashed a rock through his car window while he and his crew were in it. Cooper had been reporting from the Cairo streets, but by Thursday night he had gone to ground.

    “I can’t tell you where we are, frankly for our own safety,” Cooper said. “Systematically, we have seen journalists attacked…we would like to be showing you instead of…this strange image of us sitting on the floor of an undisclosed lighting in dim lighting, we would like to be showing you pictures, live pictures, of what’s happening in Liberation Square right now, but we can’t do that because our cameras have systematically been taken down through threats, through intimidation, through actual physical attacks.”

    He continued, “I don’t mind telling you I am a little bit scared, because we frankly don’t really know what the next few hours will hold. And I think there’s a lot of people who are scared tonight in Egypt.”

    So now Anderson Cooper is the story, eh?

  2. Copycat Protests Unfold in Yemen

    FEBRUARY 3, 2011, 8:45 AM

    (Euronews: 0815 PST, February 3, 2011) Inspired by the popular protests in Tunisia and Egypt, some 20,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Yemen in what was being called a “day of rage.” They rejected the offer made by the president yesterday to step down in 2013, and outlined their demands.

    One man said: “We want reform, we want political reforms and promises of honesty. We want stability and we want freedom. We want to apply Islamic law and if the regime is not ready for this it should go.”

    The struggle for freedom is long and hard, and then when people finally do get it
    they have no idea what to do, no plan, then its back to square one. This madness
    never ends. No one has all the right answers.

    (except God, sorry)

    Tony Blair: Mubarak Is ‘Immensely Courageous And A Force For Good’

    Tony Blair took an adversarial stance this by week by defending Egypt’s autocratic president as “immensely courageous, and a force for good.”

    According to the Guardian, the former British prime minister drew attention to Hosni Mubarak’s role in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process during a Feb. 1 appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN program. He went on to note that Western governments would be best served by backing Mubarak, despite the ongoing series of increasingly deadly protests throughout Egypt.

    “Where you stand on him depends on whether you’ve worked with him from the outside or on the inside. I’ve worked with him on the Middle East peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians so this is somebody I’m constantly in contact with and working with and on that issue, I have to say, he’s been immensely courageous and a force for good,” he said.

    STFU, Tony Blair! Lying liar who lied about WMDs in Iraq!

  6. Press TV Blames “Mubarak Thugs” for Clashes

    Iran’s Press TV reports that protests in Tahrir Square, or Liberation Square, have turned from peaceful to violent with clashes erupting between “pro-Mubarak thugs” and anti-government demonstrators. The army can no longer be seen in Tahrir Square with soldiers opting to remain in their vehicles. Press TV reports that “thugs” entered the square on camels and horses and that there have been reports of gunshots and Molotov cocktails.

  7. Egyptian Museum On Fire From Molotov Cocktail, Witness Says

    (Reuters) – Petrol bombs were thrown in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said. An Egyptologist said some had landed in the gardens of a museum housing the world’s greatest collection of Pharaonic treasures.

    The Egyptian museum itself however was unscathed.

    The Egyptologist, who had been in contact with Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, said it seemed the petrol bombs were being thrown by protesters demonstrating in favour of President Hosni Mubarak. “So far the museum is safe, but we don’t know what’s going to happen, because the Mubarak supporters are out of control,” the Egyptologist, who declined to be identified, added.

    Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum on Friday evening, smashing several statues and damaging two mummies.

    The army moved to extinguish the flames, a source from the Ministry of Defence told Reuters. Army fire engines were called to the scene to ensure that fire did no damage to “army property”, the source said. (Reporting by Marwa Awad and Patrick Werr; Writing by Shaimaa Fayed and Tom Perry)

    This was a pre-meditated attack by Mubarak’s people.
