02/11/11 – Adam Morrow – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 11, 2011 | Interviews

Adam Morrow, journalist with IPS News, discusses how Egyptian protesters remained peaceful despite scores of agent provocateurs inciting violence, attempting to discredit the demonstrations; crucial infrastructure in Tahrir Square (electrical, bathrooms) completed by volunteer professionals in hours, while it typically took the government years to respond to citizens’ needs; WikiLeaks documents that make the Egyptian government indistinguishable from Israel on Gaza policy; protesters staying put in Tahrir Square, for fear of being bluffed out by fake concessions; the soon-to-be revealed skeletons of Egypt’s recent and distant past; rumors of government involvement in the Coptic church bombing that was blamed on al Qaeda — raising tensions between Christians and Muslims; how Mubarak’s resignation strikes a huge blow to US regional influence, and marks the loss of a crucial Israel ally; and why, if it can happen in Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority could well be next.
