    that looks like muslim prayer to me.

    the irony is, if and when they do get democratic elections, egyptians will probably go and elect the muslim brotherhood, which doesn't bode well for other religious minorities in egypt...

    It doesn't seem that the protesters are rowdy. They should have not been pepper sprayed.
    Some of these are very touching.

    ^ You're so right, I failed to notice all those knelt muslims in the background...

    I think I remember that around Christmas or Easter Muslims protected Christians from violence by going with them in churches, something like that. That's what I was thinking of.
