Egyptian Uprising: Six Questions that Remain Unasked, Let Alone Unanswered
“I do not march to oust the president. He must leave, but only as a means to an end, not an end in and of itself. If we conclude an era of dictatorship only to sink into an era of alternative dictatorship or chaos, we have done nothing. The only acceptable end for which I march is the ushering in of a new era of true democracy and stability.” -Ahmed Rehab
