EgyptFacts, for 10 minutes

This video was shared by an Egyptian friend of mine. It is remarkable!
It debunks the notion of "lunatic" muslims.
It also debunks the notion that Egypt's was an Islamic revolution.
Beyond the voice of the Imam who leads these silent prayers, a larger crowd roars and whistles joyously.
It is nice when something beautiful like this happens before our eyes ... may Egypt disambiguate all of us of the notion that the Arab world and the Islamic nations are backward, violent, grudging juveniles that need Mu-Barak, Barack Obama, or Ehud Barak to 'contain' them into 'civilization'.
P.S. I don't know Arabic well; but I listened carefully for words of "down" or "death" or "hatred", like I hear in this video, where Khamenei's fascists are chastising another fascist, Ahmadinejad's lover, and I could not pick any.

Egyptians have every right to be angry with America, or at least the most evil, insidious part of America: Wall Street. Come see my Feb 1, 4, 5, and 7 blogposts. *sigh*
