Man! the news were not accurate about the army; the army didn't join any side. Egyptians and Aljazeera prejudged the army because what happened in Egypt was very similar to the Tunisian riot at the beginning.Originally Posted by Yara
Media I'm listening to nowadays:
- Aljazeera Arabic (There is no signal sometimes because of the political pressure on Nilesat to stop the stream, but other Arabic channels are supporting by "adopting"/ steaming Aljazeera's steam.. hehe, unstoppable! XD )
- Aljazeera English (We watch it sometimes)
- OTV Egypt (a lot of lies)
- A few Iranian news channels (no comment >_>")
- A few Western news channels (Watched them two or three times, because in the meanwhile I have no time, but whenever there is something very important happens in the world and I have time, I watch them too. Not fair to have one source of news; always listen to the other side (That's what I follow).. And then make your own decision. Even if a friend (same country, background, religion, culture, etc..) and I listen to the same news channels, each one of us will still have her own point of view. That's normal and nothing is wrong with that. )
Back to the riot:
In the Jum'ah Preach, the preacher said that the ethics of Islam and Jesus appeared (had been shown up) in those protestors. I heard him on TV but forgot the exact wording, so I searched for the exact quoting, but I didn't find any.
Christians prayed in the Liberation Square without any disturbance. So what is the phobia (regardless of the phobia type) that the media is spreading? To be fair, US isn't the only one who's spreading phobia; others are doing it too but they spread another type of phobia that is different than the Western's version. It's all about politics.
In addition, it's not an Islamic Brotherhood or a foreign agenda to take over Egypt as a Western and OTV Egyptian Channel are saying. In my opinion, Islamic Brotherhood will be good as ministers but not as leaders. They are wise and canny but they don't have diplomatic skills and this is because Mubarak didn't give them the chance to practice them. Elbaradei is good as a leader. He's a good diplomatic person, but not canny enough - For ME politics, a high level of canniness is required because there are complicated and sensitive problems around in ME and the Arab World. I don't know if the Egyptians have other choices or not, but time will show what happens at the end.
