Islamic Revolt 2012 “Social Insurgency vs Sectarianism” ? the Case of Ethiopia

Islam in Ethiopia is known since the time of the Prophet.
The first Hijrah was in Ethiopia at the order of the Mohammed the founder of Islam.

Since the Arab Spring of 2011 Ethiopia tested its share reaching climax in 2012.
This video shows the different positions of the Ethiopian Islamist and the different manifestations those anti and pro as the situation start being exploited by the regime which is leading to more exacerbation and more clamp down with no solution.

The revolt would lead to general uprising and regime change, if it is not kidnapped by sectarians and only if the other sector of the society joins the insurgency.

Uganda Joined the North African uprisings, Museveni spend his time buying Jet planes and Melese Constructing Death Dams in Ethiopia

The recent mutiny  in Abidjan, the army revolt in Burkina Faso and the uprising in Kampala demonstrate that Africans have joined the Arabic uprisings to eliminate there  in human dictators. In Uganda the Protest is led by the city which supported Musevenie to power- Mbale. The protest was triggered by food  price and the  repeted arrest of the opposition leader for the 4th time in a month  Dr. Kiza Besigye. The same is expected any time in Ethiopia while the regime is trying to divert the attention towards Eritrea and by constructing a Death Dam of inhuman proportion to irrigate the grabbed land of the starving millions.

The man in power in Uganda since 1986, President Museveni’s ordered his army to shoot at everything that moves the streets of Kampala like his friend Gaddafi in Misrata. It was  best  demonstration his dictatorial behavior which is similar to that of Gaddafi and Idi Amin Dada when his soldiers wounded a child in the streets of his capital today.

Uganda as a nation is start seeing the return of Idi Amin’s times when Museveni could not help the rising prices of basic commodities and fuel, and the loss of life and pain inflicted on them by his forces. Rather he bloody confirmed that the rising prices of food, is good news to farmers like Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia.  Musevine in Kampala and Melese in Addis Ababa  Knew well and good the high prices of food commodities are due to a number of factors beyond farmers’ control or could be controlled  by artificially imposing prices like in Ethiopia. It seems the African dictators are far disconnected from the reality on the ground.

First, prices are high due to low food production. It is simply  when the supply is low, prices tend to be high and vice versa. Farmers are not going to  reap money from rising prices just from the air. The Dictator of Kampala is responsible for the t negligence in the agricultural sector is to blame for the food scarcity and hence high prices and poor living conditions like his collage in Ethiopia Melese Zenawie. The later is megalomaniac is  building dams while over 2 million Ethiopians are starving to death.

The great lakes dictator dream that Uganda could become a food basket for Africa  is far from reality.

Like in Ethiopia the Ugandans are disappointed by the way the nation’s resources and money have been spent- purchase of the multi-million fighter jets. Again like Ethiopia  Ugandans need today is ability to feed their children, send them to school and be able to meet basic health care services. President Museveni is aware that sophisticated weaponry does not necessarily ensure the survival of a government since he defeated the mighty army of Milton Obote having started his guerrilla group with only 27 guns and his friend  Melees to defeat the great army of Mengistu Haile Mariam with few university drop outs. Nor the great  Death dam in Ethiopia will save Melees Zenawi from the coming Social tsunami.

What keeps the government in power and ensures the safety of its nationals is the WILL of the people. It was people’s will that brought President Museveni to power. Once people lose trust in the government, it cannot survive anymore. Gaddafi has got all sorts of arms but used it against his won people. Therefore, why should the nation waste all this money on weapons in Uganda and Dams in Ethiopia while people are starving in both countries?

In Ethiopian and in Uganda the only enemy one can think of is the opposition; those individual  who do not share the same political ideology with their respective  current regimes.  Not surprisingly, all the arms purchased will be used to kill nobody but Ugandans! And all the dam waters on the Nile will be used to irrigate the grabbed starving farms fields.

Yemen the End of the Road Blood and Bullet

The Yemen 32 years of dictator Security forces fired bullets    and tear a nerve gas at protesters yesterday, wounding at least 100 people killing unknown number of protesters camping out near Sana University. The day’s violence was the latest evidence that month long protests demanding the resignation of Yemen’s longtime dictators were spiraling out of control.

Embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh has resorted to increasingly violent tactics to try to put down the burgeoning uprising against his dictatorial rule, deploying dozens of armed supporters on the streets in an attempt to intimidate protesters.

Wielding clubs and knifes, police and regime supporters — described by protesters as government-sponsored thugs — attacked activists. Yemen would go soon worst than Libya lading to the split of the country into north and South once more.  Among the wounded yesterday, more than 20 suffered gas inhalation, and one was in critical condition after being struck with a bullet.

In the main square and in surrounding streets, people being beaten up and threatened, as well as disappearing. The violence came a day after security forces killed seven demonstrators in protests around the country.

Young activists camped out in the square near the university continued to expand the area of their sit-in and threatened to march on the presidential palace about 3 miles away. Rock-throwing battles between protesters and security troops broke out on the edges of the encampment.

Protesters said the authorities were trying to draw them into a cycle of violence to further justify a crackdown.

Arabian Social Tsunami is grooving Djibouti before the long coming Ethiopian uprising

The Social Tsunami that swept the Arabian world has just reached the Horn of Africa.  Thousands of demonstrators engulfed the divided dictatorial regime of Djibouti demanding the t president Ismail Omar Guelleh, the close friend of the Ethiopian killer Melese Zenawie to resign. This latest in a series will not leave Ethiopian untouched. The Melese Zenawie has already started tightening security around the universities and high schools.

In the capital Djibouti thousands of police are deployed around, the demonstrators gathered at a stadium on Friday with the intention of staying there until their demands were met.

At dusk the confrontation   escalated into clashes, as the security forced used batons and tear gas against stone-throwing protesters and sum shooting also being heard.

Omar Guelleh after serving two terms accepted advice of his friend Melese Zenawie the Ethiopian dynastic ruler, two present himself for the third time in April in the coming election in April. He changed in the constitution   to assure his third unlimited term.

Three opposition parties has joined the protestations   and demanded the embattled Dictator to step down.  Ismael Guedi Hared spoke in the meeting for sustained protestation till the dictator leave power.

The principal opposition leader Abdurrahman Boreh gave his support for the protestors from his forced exile in Briton.

Omar Gullah has been in power two years more than Mubarak in the tiny republic where politic is divided between the Afars and the Somali   tribesmen since independence in 1977.

The Little Eastern African country would have been taken out by the Somalian syndrome without the French and American strong military presence.

In Djibouti the protest started 3 day after the Egyptian uprising. Still passed unnoticed every Friday prayers since January 28 the demonstrations continue reaching now a climax to a sustained protest in the central stadium. For Djiboutian standards there is a high turnout of protestors seeing the nomadic nature of the population.

The 63-year-old Guelleh is preparing to win the coming April vote applying the methodology of his neighbor Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian dictator suspecting any time soon a mass explosion his starving subjects    the same ways as the revolution that swept away the 45 year old regime of the Emperor Haile Selasse in 1974.




Revolt and Massacre in the “Arabian Nights” : Bahrain,Libya, Yemen, Algeria …

The Arab streets declared war on ruling  dictators and despots extending from Tunisia via Libya cleaning Egypt and forcing the Jordanian King to reform his government, with nonstop revolting extending from Yemen to Bahrain.

Since the creation of artificial post colonial Arab states by Laurence of Arabia in the early 19th century for the benefit of the leaving colonial powers , the mass was set to sleep in long hibernation.  The dominated manipulated  sleeping giant  360 million strong Arabs are  weakling up by social Tsunami blowing  the despot  away through social media as  an arm of liberation as was guns in the  African revival in 1960’s and 70’s liberation struggle.

The new revival would eventually provoke new war in the region triggered by the Arabian night’s surviving  deposits against Iran with Israel.

The Libyan killer orders the shooting of his people over 70 innocent in the week end and lost the control of the country except the capital and the protesters cried  “Gadaffi Go Go To Africa  join the dictators”.  The worst come form century old Califa of Bahrain thinking he is in the Arabian nights orders his swards over his people.

At un  number  protesters were killed only 4 were accounted, while the number will soured over 100 in a bloody crack-down in Bahrain after tanks ordered by the Califa king entered the capital and security forces smashed a tent city in the main square, opening fire with grapeshot. The situation is fraught with risk since a Sunni monarchy minority rules a Shia majority with mixed Iranian ancestry and big ties to Tehran.

“Watch Iranian Press Tv on Bahrain Revolt”

The Saudis have already dispatched troops and equipment to put down the uprising before the social Tsunami. Iran is preparing to send two warships through the Suez Canal to support its Syrian ally led to hot words with Israel.

Kaddafi, the worst of the Arabian despot just killed cold bloody  20 people  to stop the “Day of Anger” , while there was a fifth day of violent clashes in Yemen continue menacing the to break the country to two.

Arabian revival increasing oil prices are becoming a threat to the global economy, hitting the net oil consumers of China, Europe, and Japan the most not sparing US.

Maher & Salah, SHABAB 6 APRIL Social Media bloggers led the Egyptian social Revolution that changed the country forever..

The Egyptian social Tsunami has started by a faceless face book Social Media movement known as the April 6 Movement’ has been organizing the last three years. It took the Tunisian uprising to get it a new social dynamic as spring board to start the protest.

They are the main organizers of the l upheaval that swept away the government of Hosni Mubarak.  Formed around three years ago, the loosely organized social network forum had never foreseen for itself back then a role as vehement as it holds currently.

The three years old movement started is seeds in the Egyptian workers movement similar to the polonaise movement of solidarity in 1980s but equipped with a social media at their service and disposal and younger groups than that of the Eastern Soviet satellite state in is time.

The movement was started three years ago by young internet activists Ahmed Maher and Ahmed Salah in order to mobilize support for striking industrial workers El-Mahalla El-Kubra. They used the power of media and organize people to support the cause of the workers, who were planning a strike April 6, 2008.

The young bloggers called on the supports and the participants to wear black and stay home the day of the strike. Bloggers and citizen journalists used Face book, Twitter, Flicker, blogs to inform one another and the general public about the protest.

In Egypt only about one in nine Egyptians has Internet access, and around 9 percent of that group are on Face book which make a total of 800,000 members. If we compare even that much of Ethiopians are not connected in Diaspora leave alone in the country. The recent estimate only one out 10 Ethiopian in Diaspora consult the internet today.

Under Mubrak Egyptian are legal prisoners of his system like Melese Zenawie of Ethiopia.  The only out let to the young Egyptian is the social media. Under Mubarak an estimated 18,000 Egyptians were imprisoned. The Egyptian police used to arrests people without any charges. The government has banned political organizations and makes it illegal for more than five people to gather without a license from the government. All Newspapers are monitored by the Ministry of Information in order not to criticizing Mubarak.   Thus the main base of the movement is the country’s media orientated youth, since they are the main benefiters of social media for social change.

The April 6 movement a youth coalition and says they are not political party and that it will not contest elections.

The Mubarak regime had sensed the movement back May 2008 by arresting   Maher  and found nothing tangible and realized him, and in July the same year as  a provocateur and unrest organizer then.  His co organizer of Social unrest through social media, Ahmed Salah, was finally arrested last week but it was too late to stop the volcano.

April 6 Movement Manifesto !

“We are a group of Egyptian youth brought together for the love of Egypt and the desire for reform  … Although the vast majority of us do not belong to any political trend or linked to politics , however, we are determined to complete the road, we believe we can continue from where others stopped.. We are convinced of our ability and our right to change this sad reality… We have agreed on the patriotism and sacrifice for it and the desire to reform this nation, we started on, April 6 2007 this historic day in the lives of Egyptians and Egyptian political movements, as we have with some parties and political forces called for a general strike that day to protest against the deteriorating living conditions, and we had to call for the strike by all means, including the popular Face book site, and there was a great response to the strike, where most students did not go to schools and universities that day, and most employees from different governmental sectors did not go to work, and the streets were almost empty all over the country, but the largest response to the strike was in the town of Mahalla , where Mahalla inhabitants stood against the blind stick of security ,as people took place in the mass protests ,faced the security and their tear gas and bullets, injuring dozens and killing three people and arresting hundreds of Mahalla people, despite the heated situation in the danger area Youth April 6 did not miss sharing Mahalla people their crisis and witnessing the arrogance of the security, and the violence against the people of Mahalla protesters and they also witnessed the destruction of Mahalla by thugs hired by the Security to complete the series of burning and destruction of the town of Mahalla , the castle of Egyptian industry.
Young people went out on April 6 heading towards downtown in Cairo to protest and actually a large number of April 6 youth went out to the streets that day, where some of them got arrested , and some of them continued detention for more than a month, and some were released on the same day.
Despite all that Youth April 6 refuses to surrender or retreat, they decided to complete the journey towards changing the current situation and reform the result of more than a quarter century of corruption and emergencies.
We Youth April 6 movement believe that the change and reforming of Egypt will not happen by claims or petitions, we will achieve it by providing real alternatives and real solutions to find a real alternative for political, economic and social Renaissance in Egypt that provides stability and security of the Egyptian citizen.
And we Youth April 6 movement believe that this will happen only by the move of young people – as they are the real one who will benefit from the change when it happens, as they exceed 60 % of the Egyptian population..
Our youth are the future leaders and our energy today.
And the cooperation of all political forces to unite and work together to bring about change for the reform of Egypt and get rid of the corruption, destruction and waste of wealth for more than a quarter of a century.
In the end, we do not call for a new group… Or a new party, but we call on all Egyptians (individuals – communities – parties – (dedicated in all sectors) to meet at one project: the awakening of the people to stop the unjust oppression of the corruptive gang and the elimination of corruption and despotism.

The fall of hard Dictator Mubarak announces end all dictators- 2011-2012

2011/2012 the year  the earth is changing  & cleansing  itself while the inhabitants of the planet due to the high rate of the catastrophe are no more linnet to support the incapable tyrant   who reign over them and use the international aid for their personal ends.  The global catastrophes are announcing the end of the dictators around the world. The Tunisia and Egyptian revolt is the being of the end of all dictators.

The Egyptian showed to the world how they will defeat the most outrageous dictator in Africa Hosni Mubarak.  Egyptian resistance is harsher than that of the Tunisia. The coming fight against the African dictators of the Horn of African will be bloody unless their sponsor forces them to relinquished power by depriving them their blind support.

In his last days, the Egyptian dictator ordered his security police to attack the protestors dressed in civil cloths after disarming the protestors?  The security van dashed through civilian protestors and passed crushing itself through. The Egypt police van video is just another example of violence in Egypt. Several journalists have been attacked in the streets of Cairo.

Despite the chaos, another massive Cairo protest in planned for today Friday, February 4.
The Mubarak ordered the soldiers to shoot on site and at the same time ordered his puppet newly handpicked Prime minster   to excuse for the death of the protestors the last three days.  The  dictator  of the Arabian nights  claimed his 62 years service  at the same time forgetting  Egyptian are beating  and crashed by his security forces in the disguise of  his supports.

Thursday Gunfire erupted in downtown Cairo again Thursday afternoon when anti-government protesters broke out of their barricades on the edge of Tahrir Square. It was the second day of violent clashes between the insurgents and s the security forces disguised as supporters of Egyptian deadly dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Soldiers fired over the protestors’ heads   though they were told to shoot by the dictator in his last days attempt to push them back.  Mubarak’s security forces disguised as his supporters in civil cloths and anti government protestors are well aware that the army has pledged not to use force, rendering the small number of soldiers on the ground ineffectual, reduced at times to trying to wave them away.

The army had attempted to keep the two sides far enough apart so their stone-throwing would be ineffective — planting tanks and soldiers in the no-man’s land of what had become enemy lines — but the protesters’ shift out of Tahrir Square onto open ground near the Nile River greatly complicated the soldiers’ task.

Yom Jumaa  a  potentially larger confrontation loomed Friday, the main prayer day of the Muslim week, when protest organizers have called for a redoubling of efforts to force Mubarak to step aside though he told  reports that he will resign as soon as transitional  regime is set in order to stop  coming  chaos .

His western allies knowing that they will not save their protégée from the Social Tsunami  demanded a swift political transition, the newly appointed  puppet prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, called the storming of the square on Wednesday by pro-Mubarak partisans a “fatal error” and pledged to investigate who had masterminded it, knowing his master the dying dictator Mubarak did it.

On Wednesday the dictator order an onslaught, which left at least dozen people dead and hundreds injured, produced surreal scenes, most notably a horse-and-camel charge by the attackers like the olden war in time of the great Egyptian leader Mohamed Ali. The two sides battled for hours with crude weapons, protestors used – sticks, stones, bottles, cudgels — while the dictator’s security men in civil dress used gunfire and firebombs aimed at the square’s defenders of liberty.

As always the dictator regime has denied fomenting the violence and distanced itself from the storming of the square. But organizers of what had heretofore been peaceful protesters in the square say the assailants — who staged wave after wave of well-coordinated attacks — were acting at the behest of the 82-year-old Egyptian leader and that their ranks included plainclothes police and criminals sprung from jail for that purpose.

Finally on Thursday, unlike the previous day, those disguised as the supports of President Hosni Mubarak, the armed security men were outnumbered. They were also extremely angry, taking out their ire on Western journalists who they see as misrepresenting them as the cause of the continuing violence.

In the afternoon of Thursday, the principal flashpoint remained a contested stretch near the world-famous Egyptian Museum, which abuts Liberation Square. Pro-Mubarak f security forces roamed freely in other downtown areas. Losing ground the security of men was seen confiscating food and water apparently meant for the square’s defenders.

The pro democracy forces captured and detained dozens of pro-Mubarak security attackers, placing them in a makeshift holding area before periodically handing them over to the army, rendering rough justice was sometimes dispensed on the spot for suspected  bought killers of the Dictators

The disguised security forces of Mubarak were attacking foreigners, and foreign journalists in particular, were menaced.  The insurgents took over the city of Cairo, Alexandria and Sinai and set up impromptu checkpoints, pedestrians and motorists were ordered to produce identification _ a token of the vigilante system that has taken hold across Egypt.

In incongruous scenes, some protesters in the square prostrated themselves in prayer while a hail of rocks fell nearby. On the square’s fringes, men smashed railings to make metal clubs. Some people wore motorcycle helmets, or swaddled their heads in blankets.

Mubarak fired everybody, but forgot himself as a true dictator…

The overdue Egyptian dictator  Hosni Mubarak appeared on television  late Friday  for the first time since the eruption  of the North African  social Tsunami on the streets of his capital,  refusing to accede to popular demands he fired everybody  but forgot himself  as a  dictators.


The modern Egyptian Pharaoh Mubarak announced that he was dismisses the Egyptian government and that he would see to appointing a new government just in overnight, like he would buy it from down town Giza besides the pyramid.  Arbo African dictator of the Nile not knowing the end has come when he declared  that he will press ahead with social, economic and political reforms after three decades of forgetting. He is not ashamed to praise the security forces’ crackdown on protesters.

Protesters have seized the streets of Cairo, battling police with stones and firebombs, burning down the ruling party headquarters, and defying a night curfew enforced by a military deployment. It is the peak of unrest posing the direst threat to Mubarak in his three decades of authoritarian rule.

The government’s attempts to suppress demonstrations appeared to be swiftly eroding support from the U.S. – suddenly forced to choose between its most important Arab ally and a democratic uprising demanding his ouster. Washington threatened to reduce a $1.5 billion program of foreign aid if Mubarak escalated the use of force.

The protesters were sure to be emboldened by their success in bringing tens of thousands to the streets in defiance of a ban, a large police force, countless canisters of tear gas, and even a nighttime curfew enforced by the first military deployment of the crisis.

While Cairo is burning not be the same again the smoke  rose in cities across Egypt as police cars burned and protesters set the ruling party headquarters in Cairo ablaze. Hundreds of young men tore televisions, fans and stereo equipment from other buildings of the National Democratic Party neighboring the Egyptian Museum, home of King Tutankhamen’s treasures and one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions.

Young men could be seen forming a human barricade in front of the museum to protect it.

The protestors are seen around the city looted banks, smashed cars, tore down street signs the images of the dictator and pelted armored riot police vehicles with paving stones torn from roadways.

Mubarak seemed faced with the choice between a deadly crackdown and major concessions to protesters demanding he step down this year and not hand power to his son, Gamal.

The once-unimaginable scenes of anarchy along the Nile played out on television and computer screens from Algiers to Riyadh, two weeks to the day after protesters in Tunisia drove out their autocratic president. Images of the protests in the smaller North African country emboldened Egyptians to launch four straight days of increasingly fearless demonstrations organized over mobile phone, Face book and Twitter.

The government cut off the Internet and mobile-phone services in Cairo, called the army into the streets and imposed a nationwide night-time curfew. The extreme measures were ignored by tens of thousands of rich, poor and middle-class protesters who united in rage against a regime seen as corrupt, abusive and neglectful of the nearly half of Egypt’s 80 million people who live below the poverty line of $2 a day.

Until Mubarak’s brief appearance on television early Saturday morning, he was ducking from appearance or statement and other senior figures in the regime were also notably absent.

Security officials said there were protests in at least 11 of the country’s 28 provinces, and unrest roiled major cities like Alexandria, Suez, Assiut and Port Said. At least one protester was killed Friday, bringing the death toll for the week of protest to eight.

Demonstrators were seen dragging blooded, unconsciousness fellow protesters to waiting cars and on to hospitals, but no official number of wounded was immediately available.

According to medical sources at least five protesters have been killed and 1,030 wounded in Cairo. Thirteen were killed in Suez and six in Alexandria, putting the current death count at 24.

Women dressed in black veils and wide, flowing robes followed women with expensive hairdos, tight jeans and American sneakers.

The crowd included Christian men with key rings of the cross swinging from their pockets and young men dressed in fast-food restaurant uniforms.

In downtown Cairo, people tossed cans of Pepsi and bottles of water to protesters on the streets below to douse their eyes, as well as onions and lemons to sniff, to cut the sting of the tear gas.

The US is in attainable position being between the hammer and the hard thing. It high time the US changes its position and be to the right time of history to words the Horn of African dictators like Melee Zenawie, since the force of change will eventually burn African dictators too.

Obama administration appealed for Egyptian authorities to respect the rights of citizens and halt the crackdown on swelling anti-government protests. It again urged the government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to bend toward demands for political and economic reform. The State Department urged Americans to defer any non-essential travel to Egypt.

Some of the most serious violence Friday was in Suez, where protesters seized weapons stored in a police station and asked the policemen inside to leave the building before they burned it down. They also set ablaze about 20 police trucks parked nearby. Demonstrators exchanged fire with policemen trying to stop them from storming another police station and one protester was killed in the gun battle.

In Assiut in southern Egypt, several thousand demonstrators clashed with police that set upon them with batons and sticks, chasing them through side streets.
Protesters appeared unfazed by the absence of Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed El Baradei, one of the country’s leading pro-democracy advocates. The former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency was soaked with water cannon as protests erupted after Friday, and then prevented by police from leaving after he returned to his home.

A Face book page run by protesters listed their demands:-

  1. They want Mubarak to declare that neither he nor his son will stand for next presidential elections;
  2. Dissolve the parliament holds new elections;
  3. End to emergency laws giving police extensive powers of arrest and detention;
  4. Release all prisoners including protesters and those who have been in jail for years without charge or trial; and immediately fire the interior minister.

The Egyptian Dictator, Mubarak has not said yet whether he will stand for another six-year term as president in elections this year. He has never appointed a deputy and is thought to be grooming his son Gamal to succeed him despite popular opposition. According to leaked U.S. memos, hereditary succession also does not meet with the approval of the powerful military.

The diehard dictator and his government have shown no hint of concessions to the protesters who want political reform and a solution to rampant poverty, unemployment and rising food prices.

Mubarak continuing the heavy-handed methods used by the security forces the past three days would probably buy the Mubarak regime a little time but could strengthen the resolve of the protesters and win them popular sympathy.

The alternative is to introduce a package of political and economic reforms that would end his party’s monopoly on power and ensure that the economic liberalization policies engineered by his son and heir apparent Gamal over the past decade benefit the country’s poor majority.

Even if he lift the emergency laws in force since 1981, loosen restrictions on the formation of political parties and publicly state  he will  not stand for another six-year term in elections this year, will not save him.

Egypt’s four primary Internet providers – Link Egypt, Vodafone/Raya, Telecom Egypt, Etisalat Misr – all stopped moving data in and out of the country at 12:34 A.M. Friday, according to a network security firm monitoring the traffic. Telecom experts said Egyptian authorities could have engineered the unprecedented cutoff with a simple change to the instructions for the companies’ networking equipment.

The Internet appeared to remain cut off in Cairo but was restored in some smaller cities Friday morning. Cell-phone text and Blackberry Messenger services were all cut or operating sporadically in what appeared to be a move by authorities to disrupt the organization of demonstrations.

The African and the rest of the Arabic dictators will soon pay the same price and not one will save them from the coming street social Tsunami of 2011. We heard many dictators are moving their families to the west fearing the coming social eruptions.
