Camelot moment – Egyptian freedom
The shackles of Mubarak have been lifted and the Egyptian youth are feeling freedom like they and their parents have never felt before.
They are in a vacuum of course, awaiting the formation of a government, hopefully democratic and hopefully that will sustain individual freedom and liberty.
There is a chance for Egypt to produce a new model for the Middle East, and a better way than anyone can imagine. It will take luck and friendships and I hope the USA can provide the friendship.

Obama praised the protesters and their peaceful demonstrations that have rocked the country for the past 18 days.
"Over the last few weeks, the wheel of history turned at a blinding pace," he said.”
