Six months ago, it was the over-whelming good cheer and peaceful demo of the protestors in Cairo that changed things there. It made a great impression, that here were people bringing democratic changes through non-violence.
By contrast, when you see the violence flaring up today, you realize that it is a sad situation.
Perhaps the government should do a short-term emergency welfare programme, and hand out some spending money to the people, until the elections on 28th November.
Egypt is a nation which has had great leadership, like Gamal Abdul Nasser, Anwar Sadat, Hosni Mubarak, all men of great leadership who advocated peace. Egypt has a great economy to which tourism contributes very significantly.
I pray the protestors in Tahrir Square will see the value of peace and non-violence.
May God help them restore their economy to peace and prosperity.
