Disunity in Egypt

It seems that in the past few days, sentiments from the ongoing revolution in Tunisia have spread elsewhere in the Arab world and have manifested themselves in huge demonstrations today on the streets of Cairo and Alexandria among other places in Egypt.

Just as it is too early to tell what will result from the “Jasmine Revolution” in Tunisia, this protest movement in Egypt is only a first hurrah and a hat tip to their Mediterranean neighbor to the west.  Time will tell what government arises from the ashes of Ben Ali’s dictatorship and whether the street movements in Egypt will be enough to push aside Hosni Mubarak’s ailing regime.
