RADIO INTIFADA SPECIAL- The Popular Revolt in Egypt
Implications for the Middle East and US Foreign Policy
We have all been watching with bated breath for the past week as the non-violent popular revolt (intifada) in Egypt gained momentum; and now, with concern, as Mubarak’s “loyalists” are responding with violence.
What does the future hold, not just for the people of Egypt, but throughout the region? And what are the implications for US foreign policy, including massive US military aid to Egypt? What has the US learned in the past 32 years since the Iranian revolution? Will it stand with the Egyptian people and support peace and democracy for all of the people of the Middle East?
Adel EL-Mahrouky is an Egyptian/ American, who has lived most of his life in Egypt. He is a TV showhost, and currently a Journalism and Mass Communication Masters Student at The American University in Cairo.
Dr. Stephen Zunes is a Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco, where he chairs the program in Middle Eastern Studies
