Today he’s in denial, tomorrow he’ll be in the Nile?

Fingers crossed…

Of course he could seek sanctuary in Tel Awashington… oh no, major problem: he may be the greatest Arab arse licker to the Zionist Cause ever but he’s still an Arab!

A few worthwhile reactions from around the blogoglobe:

Very succinct:
Joe Biden is an idiot. Slightly belated observation perhaps but better late than never…

Surprise du jour:
Michelle Malkin gets it more or less right!

Surprisingly moderate reaction:
Payama Pam Geller

Angry Arab (As’ad AbuKhalil):
Ben Ali’s speech didn’t work, neither did Mubarak’s

Best so far, in my humble opinion: Max Ajl:
Yaskoot Hosni Mubarak

Richard Silverstein makes a
interesting connection between Tunis/Cairo 2011 and Tehran 2009. Not sure about that but overall good analysis nonetheless

Most risible, but far from surprising, from ‘Joseph W’ at the Brown Sauce in a post that’s not entirely Egypt related but close enough, wait for it because it’s a real corker: ”It is true, of course, that the USA assists democratic opponents of authoritarian rule across the world.” Two words: Latin America. But Joseph W, BTW, is a Zionist and they don't care about Latin America, so now you know…

Having said that, the Lord of Darkness himself, Bibi Netanyahoo, takes the cake with "Having said that, I'm not sure the time is right for the Arab region to go through the democratic process", he revealed in Time. Stoooopid Arabs.

Strange days, I’d never thought I’d find myself temporarily more in some reluctant agreement with Pamela Geller than with Bibi…

Meanwhile in Ha’aretz Aluf Benn frets that “without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East”. Perhaps Israel should look further a field for buddies? I hear Mugabwe is still free and possible looking for alliances? But alternatively it could just ‘do the right thing’…

I told you to keep an eye on Egypt. Needless to say my comrades are happy.

The Muslim Brotherhood first opposed demonstrations, now they are the rear guard. No demands for Sharia.

Yes but it's hardly a 'socialist' revolution now is it?

The masses don't learn from books. They will make mistakes.

Again the main problem in the world, is lack of revolutionary leadership.

Look what Russia went through before 1917. The masses even Kerensky a chance.

Even bourgeois democracy is a step forward.

The Islamists played no role in this.
