#Jan 29 : After the 28th

  • 10: 01 AM I woke up on my iPhone , the mobile phones are working while the internet is still not working.
  • 10:25 AM Al Jazeera reporter in Alex : More than 20 bodies alone.
  • 10:25 AM Arkadia mall was stolen yesterday. Some shops are stolen in Gamaat Al Doul.
  • 11:15 AM Some mobile lines are working , some are not according to the the mobile phone operator and geography as far as I see.
  • 11: 19 AM Looters stole Arkadia. Nothing in Upper Egypt , what happened to Upper Egypt ?!
  • 11:21 AM I am going to check the streets soon in some quick tour.
  • 11:34 AM Before I go on a tour , here is a quick toll :
  1. Not less than 1000 were injured yesterday across the country.
  2. About 20 were killed in Egypt
  3. 3000 were detained by the security forces.
  • The cabinet has not resigned yet !!
  • 11:41 AM terrible clashes in Ismailia. The locals in Sinai kidnapped officers and took them as hostages.
  • 11:44 AM graffiti all over Egypt calling Mubarak names even on the Egyptian army tanks. There is an urgent meeting in the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs to discuss the matter.
  • 11:58 AM : Many injured are in Tawfikia needed to be transferred to hospitals.
  • 12:01 PM : Live ammunition were used last night.
  • 12:16 PM I talked to a friend in 6th of October city , she is living near the police station there, she told me that she heard in her house the sound of automatic guns , live ammunition.Carefour Maadi is allegedly on fire. I think we are getting close from a hunger revolution.
  • 12: 20 PM A friend in Shahab street, Mohendessin told us that  that the shops there were looted yesterday. The duty free shops branch at Gamaat Al Doul was looted too.
  • 12:22 PM Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei in a phone interview : Mubarak must leave , his speech was disappointing.
  • 12:24 PM  the locals of Sinai have blown up the State security HQ in Rafah , a person was killed and 12 were injured.
  • 12:30 PM To my tour.
  • 4: 30 PM I have come back at last , saw the vehicles and tanks of the army , saw a huge protest going to the Tahrir square , the NDP HQ on fire , a noise at a Arkadia mall  and the on going war at the Imbaba police station.

          - Ahmed Ezz has resigned from the NDP “LOL”

          - The curfew is now from 4 PM CLT to 8 AM CLT.

         -  I heard that the MOI released the thugs and thieves from 5 PM to 12 AM to create chaos before the arrival of the Egyptian army. Those thugs and thieves are responsible for looting in order to defame the revolution and spread free in order to justify the excess use of force. The MOI has called all the security from banks, the Egyptian banks are left without a single soldier , tomorrow is a holiday for banks in CBE “I think it will be extending to the rest of the week”

         - There is no single police officer , the youth , the wonderful youth of Egypt are the ones that are organizing the traffic.

         - I do not know if it is a rumor or not but I heard on the streets  that the Egyptian army issued a statement that it will not open fire against the protesters.

      - Again I am optimistic , all the people are attacking Mubarak , they are no afraid anymore. 

  • 4:44 PM people are roaming Zamalak island with microphones telling the youth to bring stick or a gun and go down to protect the buildings. People are frightened despite that there are public committees made to protect the neighborhood.

  • 5:13 PM According BBC Arabic : Habib Al Adly has left. I feel that millions are in the street in Egypt and Egyptian VIPs including Khadija Al-Gamal, the wife of Gamal Mubarak along with Ahmed Ezz’ wives “he got 3 wives” are in London.
  • 5:16 PM Omar Soliman has been appointed as the vice president of Arab Republic of Egypt.
  • I am against Omar Soliman , sorry dears now I can’t stomach  him anymore , I do not want Farag Abaza and Dalia Soliman instead of Gamal and Alaa. This is from the inside house choice , today I heard people calling for his trial “No choice except a trial for the president” while Soliman will not present Mubarak because he is part of his regime.
  • Omar Soliman is the choice which will America and Israel accept along with the Egyptian army. We should not forget that he has an appeal over any other man from the regime but it is too late.
  • 5:30 PM And now Gamal and Alaa Mubarak along their families were witnessed leaving their residence in Kataymia , the Mubarak brothers were seen in London later this day according to the Egyptian community in London.
  • 5:57 PM Mubarak has appointed Ahmed Shafik as the prime minister. The long time student of Mubarak in the air forces was our minister of aviation. The minister of aviation was considered a successful minister after the renovation of Cairo airport and Egypt Air “With Lufthansa “ Shafik was from the important candidates for presidency if you remember. He is a rude hot tempered . Once the 6 April youth sent him a SMS over his mobile  telling him that he will meet the same fate of Ben and he replied by a SMS “ Fuck you , you 6 April fagots !!”
