And So It Begins


A street vendor in Tunisia – How appropriate that the Revolution starts on the street – and that he is called Mohamed.
The joke is on westerners like me, who started this revolution thread convinced that when people finally stood up and shouted “enough!”
– those people would be European or American.
I was wrong – by a long way.
The Middle East is rising up out of its misery and to be quite frank, I kind of envy them their desire to take control and responsibility for their own lives.
What courage. What fantastic courage. All the best to them.

Quote:
As the mood turned ugly after the last few days of euphoria, UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon said he was "deeply concerned" at the "unacceptable" violence.
He urged Egypt's leaders to "accept the will of their people that they should listen more attentively to the genuine and sincere wish of the people".

David Cameron sent the same message to the Egyptian authorities, saying it would be unacceptable for the Egyptian government to be supporting violence in any way.
"If it turns out that the regime in any way has sponsored or tolerated this violence, that is completely unacceptable," he said after meeting Ban Ki-moon in London.

The UN High commissioner for human rights urged the authorities to listen to demands for fundamental reforms.
"I urge all governments, both in this region and elsewhere to reflect on the fact that, in the long term, genuine and lasting stability does not depend on a ruthless security apparatus, or a ring of military steel, but on the development of human rights and democracy," said Navi Pillay.
"These are the principles on which the United Nations was founded. Stability cannot be approached solely through a security lens. This is a short-sighted method that, in the end, is bound to fail."
