So Mubarak wants to go but is concerned about possible chaos. It is his police, his henchmen and his corrupt officials causing the violence in a last ditch attempt to hold onto power. Here is some advice then as it is easy. Go back to Sharm El Sheikh, contact your nearest Israeli travel agent and stay with "friends", ( enemies of Palestinians) in the Israeli Government. They obviously want you.
How often have we been told during other struggles that the presence of reactionary forces is needed to maintain "peace"! Can't withdraw troops from N.Ireland as there will be a blood bath! Must stay in Iraq and Afghanistan to bring about stable civil government etc etc. Yet it is the illegal occupying forces denying people their rights, that has always been the cause of the violence.
In the meantime the US Administration is trying to hedge its bets as to which way it will go. Well the Egyptian masses have remained strong in their struggle for democracy, inspite of everything literally thrown at them. Today we will see the movement get even stronger. Again we salute the people in Tahrir Square, Alexandria, Suez and throughout the other cities and towns of Egypt who are standing firm against counter revolution.
The enemy is not "foreign forces" ,as stated by the Egyptian vice president yesterday. The enemy of the people in Egypt are those who have everything to lose as a result of the end of the Mubarak regime.The scenes in Yemen show that the movement has been internationalised and all despots are being shown the door.
Let us hope today is Mubarak's last day in office.

WORLDWIDE SOLIDARITY DAY FOR EGYPTIAN UPRISING
SATURDAY 5 FEBRUARY
ASSEMBLE 2.30PM UNITED STATES EMBASSY
GROSVENOR SQUARE, LONDON W1K
MARCH TO EGYPTIAN EMBASSY
Saturday 5 February has been designated a day for international
solidarity protests with the Egyptian uprising.
The London demonstration that assembles at the US Embassy in
Grosvenor Square at 2.30pm is one of hundreds in towns and cities
across the globe, from the United States to the Lebanon, from
Venezuela to the Netherlands, from Canada to Turkey, from
Australia to the West Bank and Gaza.
The Egyptian uprising is now facing its pivotal moment, with
Mubarak having unleashed his thugs to attack the pro-democracy
protesters. Mubarak is using state TV to spread the lie that the
mass demonstrations calling for him to go are the work of
The significance of international solidarity action across the
world cannot be over-stated. It sends a message to the millions
who have joined the Egyptian protests that their courage and
determination have been an inspiration to us all.
And it sends a message to our own government that it needs to
call for Hosni Mubarak to leave office immediately.
Making generalised statements deploring the violence, which has
been David Cameron's response, will not do, in particular from a
government, which like all those that preceded it, has up till
now given unqualified support to Mubarak's tyranny.
Tony Blair's statement this week that Mubarak is "immensely
courageous and a force for good" was not just more raving from
the swivel-eyed former prime minister: it was until the Egyptian
uprising the view of all British prime ministers.
