In a move that does not surprise anyone, Egypt has now shifted into religious mode, with former religious leaders flying back into the country, and there are even signs of some Iranian intervention in the country.
Yesterdays’ news talked about Wael Ghonim being not allowed on stage to talk to the crowds of people who gathered in the al-Taharir square in Cairo. It looks like the Google’s employee is not wanted around Yusuf al-Qaradawi – a religious cleric that came back home to drive the revolution its final 3 feet, to stop at yet another Sharia law country, another Islamic republic to the growing collection.
Now we should hope for yet another revolution of the sane and not religious, those who do not believe that thee is such a thing as a god, and that this god does not ask his blievers to decapitate 12 year old girls for not following the manual, listening to music or having a boyfriend (that’s not at 12, maybe more like 17). Good luck Egypt, it looks like you just replaced one set of problems for another.
