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.

  1. Dear Scott,

    I've just recently discovered your radio program at KPFK. Thus far my favorite interview of yours was with phil geraldi. Wonderful.

    A couple of other ideas, please consider doing longer interviews. 10 minutes is barely enough time for anyone to scratch the surface about anything.

    And, why not have a link at least to the interviews you're doing over at KPFK, as these are important interviews that are not being referred to here. Also, I like the format of the KFPK show better than your daily show with anti-war. The news briefs are fantastic, they get you thinking!

    Good Luck, Thanx for your work!
