CAIRO, Egypt -- I was sitting in a hotel room in Amman, Jordan staring at Omar Suleiman's grim face on television as he read his 20-second statement o...
Egyptians are getting more Mubarakism, sans Mubarak, at least for now. This not what most Egyptians want or deserve.
The youthful energy that spread from Tunisia into and across Egypt should inspire us all to reign in corporatocracy.
To view events in Egypt through the paradigm of what they mean for Israel -- as many US commentators do -- is shocking, disgraceful and counterproductive.
In raising concerns about the long-term meaning and results of Egypt's revolution, we must return to the very definition of revolution: a rapid, fundamental, and violent domestic change in the dominant values and myths of a society.
