Mubarak's Thugs

Last week a protest occurred in Egypt by Pro-Democracy, Pro-Reform activists against the iron grip dictatorship of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. This is what happened:

"Down with the rule of the dog Mubarak," one young man yelled as he was being clubbed.

What should you make out of this? Just notice that:

1)This was completely ignored by the Canadian MSM.
2) The Arab and Muslim community groups across North America remained silent on this injustice and will not criticize the oppression of their own brethren at the hands of their own leaders. (Something they never do when it comes to Israel).
3) The Liberal-Left in this country ignored this act of bravery completely.
4) George W. Bush is still considered a worse leader by the tinfoil crowd.

Yep, same old story. The West continues to ignore the brutal techniques that the leaders of the so-called "friendly" Muslim nations employ to stay in power.

I'm curious as to why the Canadian MSM would ignore this. Is Egypt one of our new best friends, like China? Or is it that a potentially-legal election might imply that Bush's war in Iraq is actually accomplishing something?

I am glad that others notice this, it is the same situation in the US unfortunately.

You really expect Arab and Muslims to say anything against Middle Eastern/Muslim leadership? The only time they ever will is after some disasterous terrorist attack or the like occurs or if the CIA threatens to revoke local Mullah dude's visa.

I'll be honest: I find most Muslims and Arabs to be cowards. Afraid to confront reality.

Noting the silence of Arabs/Muslims w/re to Afghanistan (where both Muslim and Arab nations supported the Taliban), I lost hope with Muslim leadership in the US. Did it have to take Sept. 11th for them to voice an objection to the heinous Taliban regime?

I often find the same ubiquitous complaints on part of the Muslim community: Bosnia, Chechnya, Palestine and Iraq. They yet fail to ever acknowledge and comdemn Arab/Muslim violence upon one another.The Arab leadership in the US is even more myopic in comparison to other Muslims the US when condemning violence and terrorism. For them, it's all about Arabs. Forget the rest of the world. Arabs have continued to engage in a brutal genocide in Sudan. Where's the leadership?

I'm not arguing that Arab/Muslim opposition to the war in Iraq, occupation of Palestine, etc. are not legitimate concerns. They are. But they must simultaneously strive to oppose injustices by Muslims upon non-Muslims and Muslims.

Why don't we ever hear about Algeria? or the abysmal human rights records of the Arab Gulf, Egypt, and Iran?
