Latest Hosni Mubarak Items
Arab and Muslim leaders facing pro-democracy protests need to lead the way rather than resist reform, a senior U.S. diplomat said Sunday while condemning violent crackdowns against demonstrators in Libya, Algeria and Yemen.
Moammar Gadhafi's forces fired on mourners leaving a funeral for protesters Saturday in the eastern city of Benghazi, killing at least 15 people and wounding scores more as the regime tried to squelch calls for an end to the ruler's 42-year grip on power.
Rivaling the biggest crowds since their pro-democracy revolt began, flag-waving Egyptians packed into Tahrir Square for a day of prayer and celebration Friday to mark the fall of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak a week ago and to push their new military rulers to steer the country toward reform.
The people flooding into the streets of Iran to seek regime change find no support from the U.S. government. President Obama, who hectored Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to transfer power "right now," suddenly doesn't want to get involved when it comes to the dictators running the Islamic republic.
In the wake of grass-roots protests that swept Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak from power, more than a few commentators have cautioned that the current political turmoil could end up bearing more than a passing resemblance to the events that led up to the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Ominously, the present situation in Egypt closely resembles the events leading up to Algeria's bloody 11-year civil war, which stretched from 1991 to 2002.
President Obama is siding with Israel's enemies. He is slowly fracturing America's long-standing alliance with the Jewish state and leaving it isolated on the world stage.
Thousands of protesters defied appeals for calm from the military and the country's most influential Islamic cleric and marched in cities across Yemen on Thursday, pressing on with their campaign to oust the U.S.-allied president.
For a moment, it seemed Egypt wasn't just throwing off its political shackles. Women long suffering from the scourge of sexual harassment reported Cairo's Tahrir Square, command central of the uprising, had become a safe zone free of the groping and leering common in their country.
A White House official says President Barack Obama has spoken with CBS reporter Lara Logan in the wake of the network's announcement that she was brutally attacked in Egypt.
