Egypt Government Cracks Down on Foreign Observers, Death Toll Rises

Egypt Government Cracks Down on Foreign Observers, Death Toll Rises
    Just this evening, today's New York Times reports that the Obama administration is in discussions with Egyptian officials about a proposal for President Hosni Mubarak to resign immediately and to turn over power to a transitional government headed by Vice President Omar Suleiman with the support of the Egyptian military. The proposal calls for the new government to 'invite members from a broad range of opposition groups, including the banned Muslim Brotherhood, to begin work to open up the country’s electoral system in an effort to bring about free and fair elections in September.'

     

    The uprising in Egypt entered its tenth day with more reports of violence and with the government arresting foreign journalists and human rights activists. The Feburary 3rd Guardian reports that, since violence between protesters and supporters of Mubarak broke out on Thursday, thirteen people have died and some 1200 injured. While the government seems to be making some concessions, Mubarak continues to refuse to step down immediately and claimed that, should he do so, there would be even more disorder and chaos in Egypt.

     

    Christiane Amanpour Interviews Mubarak

    In an interview with Christiane Amanpour of ABC News, Mubarak said that he is '"fed up"' with being Egypt's president and that '"after 62 years in public service I have had enough. I want to go."' With his son Gamal---who has resigned from the ruling National Democratic party, according to Egypt Daily News--beside him, Mubarak said that he had told President Obama:

    “You don’t understand the Egyptian culture and what would happen if I step down now.”

     

    The New York Times notes that the Egyptian government has been seeking to 'increasingly spread an image that foreigners were inciting the uprising' in which tens of thousands of Egyptians have taken to the street to call for Mubarak to step down after thirty years in power. These suggestions, the New York Times notes, are 'part of a days-long Egyptian news media campaign that has portrayed the protesters as troublemakers and ignored the scope of an uprising that has captivated the Arab world.' In Jordan, King Hussein dissolved his cabinet on Tuesday while in Yemen, the government offered concessions to the opposition, which has promised to call a demonstration every Thursday until March. And in Syria, there were calls for a “day of rage” this weekend against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
