Ghonim: Facebook & Internet to Thank for Freedom:

My Commentary: Indeed, We are all Khaled Said… in spite of the fact that most don’t even know his name. The Egyptian Revolution started long before Jan. 25, but this date will forever mark the beginning of the end for Mubarak’s corrupt, brutal, murderous regime! Let us pray that it is also the end for US-puppet dictators in Egypt, as well!

(Al Jazeera) Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has resigned from his post, handing over power to the armed forces.

Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address that the president was “waiving” his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the armed forces.

Suleiman’s short statement was received with a roar of approval and by celebratory chanting and flag-waving from a crowd of hundreds of thousands in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, as well by pro-democracy campaigners who attended protests across the country on Friday.

The crowd in Tahrir chanted “We have brought down the regime”,  while many were seen crying, cheering and embracing one another.

Mubarak Family Fortune Could Reach $70bn, Say Experts:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/04/hosni-mubarak-family-fortune

President Hosni Mubarak‘s family fortune could be as much as $70bn (£43.5bn) according to analysis by Middle East experts, with much of his wealth in British and Swiss banks or tied up in real estate in London, New York, Los Angeles and along expensive tracts of the Red Sea coast.

After 30 years as president and many more as a senior military official, Mubarak has had access to investment deals that have generated hundreds of millions of pounds in profits. Most of those gains have been taken offshore and deposited in secret bank accounts or invested in upmarket homes and hotels.

According to a report last year in the Arabic newspaper Al Khabar, Mubarak has properties in Manhattan and exclusive Beverly Hills addresses on Rodeo Drive.

His sons, Gamal and Alaa, are also billionaires. A protest outside Gamal’s ostentatious home at 28 Wilton Place in Belgravia, central London, highlighted the family’s appetite for western trophy assets.

My Commentary: THIS is FASCISM! Working as partners with Egypt’s tyrannical, illegitimate US-puppet, Mubarak, the soulless corporations of the west quickly shut down the service of millions of paying customers for days in order to suppress free speech & revolution for profit! And, this is only ONE of A NUMBER of cases of corporations from the west working with dictatorships towards the goal of CENSORSHIP!

Here a few other cases worth mentioning:

2011-02-03 – Mainstream Media Monopoly’s Lack of Egypt Coverage of Equals Censorship

Corporate US Media’s Woeful, Sanitized Egypt Coverage Amounts To Censorship:

(Steve WatsonPrisonplanet.com)  While the ailing dictatorship government in Egypt is busy rounding up and arresting Al Jazeera journalists in an attempt to control the release of footage and accounts of the mass uprising going on throughout the entirety of the country, the disgraceful corporate American media has once again shown itself to be just as strictly regulated in terms of the content it provides to viewers.

In Britain and Canada anyone interested in following the mass unrest in Egypt can simply turn on the television and tune into the English version of Al Jazeera, which has round the clock reports and uninterrupted live footage from journalists on the ground in Cairo and around the rest of the country.

The channel has been running and offering its content worldwide since 2006, yet unless you live in certain parts of Ohio, Vermont or Washington, D.C., you cannot even access the channel in the US, because the cable carriers are not interested in allowing you to see it.

My Commentary: This is why the internet has become such an important tool of free speech and free press for all of humanity, and why the cowards-that-be should never be allowed to take full control of it! People have become fed up with the GATEKEEPING tactics, ALARMISM and FLUFF PIECES perpetually delivered by America’s mainstream media monopoly, and are HUNGRY for some TRUTH!
