Scott Horton Interviews Adam Morrow
Adam Morrow, journalist with IPS News, discusses the renewed Tahrir Square protests in Egypt, where demands are being made for a complete purge of Mubarak’s cronies from the government; evidence of a brewing counterrevolution, where false flag attacks are used to incite violence and discredit the uprising; why the endurance of protesters – who have been waiting 30 years or more for this chance – should not be underestimated; the evolving relations between Egypt, Gaza and Israel; how the US provoked the Hamas-Fatah civil war in Gaza after the wrong party won the 2006 Palestinian election; the media’s characterization of all Israeli violence as retaliatory, and all Palestinian violence as unprovoked; the Egyptian protesters calling for a national referendum on the Camp David Accords outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo; and the uncertain character of Mohamed ElBaradei: is he a genuine reformer or a Western stooge?
