    First of all, it'll be So hard to describe how much people were very respectful and helpful, as you enter el tahrir sq. a group of guys will check you for any kind of weapons. then people will give you Free Snack " Rasko " which is like Orio. and also Free water bottles.
    there wasn't any kind of harrasments or fights or even inappropriate words or cheers.
    and there was some guys and girls holding plastic bags and collecting garbage from the ground. you could see all kinds of people, muslim and christians, boys and girls, Black and white, all together, one was like a festival not a revolution. all people Cheering for 1 thing, which is ' Mohamed Hosny Mubarak, go Away, we don't want you'

    and about what happened on wednesday 2/2/2011 of violence. it all started with some of mubarak's Supporters which entereded el tahrir sq. wish horses and camels , and showed alot of violence with them. Alot of People believe, And i'm one of them, that most of the Supporters got Paid to do that. and i'm 100% sure. i know 2 people personally who was asked to do that for a raise.

    The Egyptian youth, The True Egyptians. are the ones who i saw on Tuesday, they're definitely not the ones who want to destroy Egypt, But definitely the ones who want it a better place for them to live in the future.

      Hi Ahmad,
      Yes there is a misunderstanding. Must be the language barrier between us.
      My blog is about changing the perception of the general public here in my country that Islam is equated to violence (associated with Jemayah Islamiyah, etc.). The peaceful protest is actually an important event because it goes to show that the real people are peacefully expressing what they wish in their own terms - employment, services, etc.

      I am not saying Islam is violent. The protest is proof it is not. The real people are standing up and saying we do not stand for corruption in a non-violent way. This really makes armed groups in the name of Islam and other form of ideology become POWERLESS in the face of non-violence.

      I'm about publishing today an article written by our fellow journalist Fadi Hammoud about Middle-East revolutions. May I ask your permission to use this amazing picture as an illustration?

      Of course, I should need a quick answer, or else I publish it (since I see from earlier comments that you don't mind too much) and change it if ever you refuse.

      Eventually, this could be the first of many collaborations in the future.
