  1. Thank you sister for a very informed debate.I agree with you that Tunisia is of less importance to super powers but I also feel that there’s another dimension to it which is country’s minority.Tunisia is mostly muslim(98%) where as egypt has big christian minority, so the transition for tunisia was smooth compared to egypt.I also fee that any govt that will come in egypt cannot succeed without taking into confidence its minority.I hope n pray that the issues the people of egypt faces brings them closer.

  2. Well articulated, though I have a problem with the factual content, the lack thereof.

    In principle, regardless of the unavailing thought exchange, I am on Myriam’s view.

    ‘All Power to the People’ is so much darkly shiny.

    My regards, Myriam.
