The revolution in Egypt ~ a genuine uprising on the part of oppressed people but will it be used to further Israel's interests? Internationally-esteemed journalist Dahr Jamail and co-host Mark Dankof join Mark Glenn on the program to explore this question.

What is really happening in Egypt? I am sad to say, all is not as it seems to be. Sit back and listen to this excellent analysis of events in the Middle East, focusing on, of course, Egypt.... and Iran.... and the US.... and Israel. Learn what the players are really up to.

  1. I am 58 years old, and right now my eyes are brimmed with tears and I am sobbing.

    My tears are tears of happiness and my sobbing is sobbing of compassion.


  2. You have every reason to be proud of your countrymen and women. The ordinary people are showing the rest of the world how it should be done.... I just pray that they are not being manipulated... after all it is not as if Mubarak was of much value to the US or Israel...having one foot in the grave and all.... I keep hoping that this would work out well for the Palestinians also...
