Thank you Dr. Pipes, very interesting indeed

I would also like to remind the readers that in the case of Egypt there is no doubt that the death of the young man Khaled Said (Sa3eed) and the facebook page "We are all Khaled Said" was the straw that broke the camel's back in the case of Egypt and it inspired the 1/25/2011 uprising in Egypt and i suspect that it would have happened with or with out the tragedy in Tunisia

For the readers: Khaled Said (Sa3eed) with killed by Amn al-Dawla or Egypt's notorious secrect police because he was planning to post in a blog about the police's dirty dealings with selling illegal drugs and hashish.
