    Al Jazeera live.
    Absolutely stunning

    More people are coming into the square. Over a million according to AJ and the Army is not preventing anyone entering despite the curfew starting.
    Amazing

    The Western-backed Palestinian government in the West Bank said Tuesday it will hold local council elections "as soon as possible."

    The move appeared to be a response to unrest in Egypt, where demonstrators have staged days of mass protests against the authoritarian regime. The Palestinian Authority has not held elections since 2006, leaving the president and parliament members in office after their elected terms ended.

    Lolol.
    Interesting how they are all shaking now and trying to buy off their own people

    There appear to be a lot of quasi-democrats quaking in their despotic little boots at the moment. Of course it's a worry that it's impossible to tell how this might all shake out, but if the dictatorial, corrupt oligarchs of the region are on their way out it cannot be a wholly negative turn of events.

    Historic moment that brings chills, just like the green revolution in Iran.

    Overthrowing the govt. has its potential consequences. Wonder how many people here really support the Muslim Brotherhood and the total elimination of Israel? Overthrowing the govt. is a lot easier than addressing what comes next.

    A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt told the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam on Monday that he would like to see the Egyptian people prepare for war against Israel, according to the Hebrew-language business newspaper Calcalist.

    A lot of this is rhetoric. I don't believe that the Muslim Brotherhood has the power to bring this about.

    The Green Revolution in Iran was crushed by the Iranian Theocracy.
