Popular uprising against the Egyptian government.

The following is from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization:

With incredible heroism, the spirit of sacrifice and a determination to win, the Egyptian people are taking to streets to end the rule of the hated President Hosni Mubarak. Police stations have been burned to the ground, as has the Cairo headquarters of Mubarak’s political party, the National Democratic Party.

Israel exists on stolen land and borrowed time.
