First of all I congratulate the revolting Egyptians on Tahrir Place, in front of the People’s Assembly and all around Egypt and the world for their brave efforts and peaceful fights. Keep on fighting. May God bless you. I am admiring your courage confronting this monster of a tumbling state. Hopefully there will grow more and more international solidarity.

The crackdown on the protesters is untold. So far Human Rights Watch estimates carefully that over 300 people have been killed mainly according to lists of the hospitals at the most important strategic places in the country, but expects the real figures to be much higher. Let us commemorate the victims as the courageous citizens on the street fighting for their rights and the rights of their families and fellow citizens against an unjust brutal regime. May they rest in peace. And may everyone be aware that they did not die for nothing.

As this is going on and US and EU politicians are paying their lip services to it, it has been reported that Abrams tanks possessed by the US-army were at the same time used allegedly by the Egyptian army during the crackdown on the 29th of January. Another thing is the report that an armored car of the US embassy in Cairo crashed in some pro Mubarak protesters. The US government claimed the car was stolen months ago. For details watch the latest news broadcast of Democracy Now, the War and Peace Report (www.democracynow.org).

Also gas bombs made in USA are used against the protesters in Egypt. I wonder how this topic looks regarding to the German Egypt relations. I could imagine it does not show much difference.

Here I want to give you at least two sources of media coverage about the revolt in Egypt. The one is the independent broadcaster Democracy Now! (www.democracynow.org) with news from the ground and many contributions in today´s broadcast for example (you can watch it free at the website), the other is Al Jazeera English from which I just want to present you a link to a comment on Egypt’s present prime minister Suleiman (Suleiman: The CIA’s man in Cairo, http://english.aljazeera.net/indepth/opinion/2011/02/201127114827382865.html).
