Egyptian Revolution in 2011 Time Poll 100 List

The Egyptian revolution has its share in the 2011 Time Poll 100 List boys and girls , it is not three covers :) The Time magazine will announce the final list next Thursday.

I have already sent to the committee through twitter and Facebook , it will be great we push this more and more even in the media.

Already I wished that Time magazine would have both Lara Logan and Swedish reporter Bert Sundström in the list. Bert was stabbed in Cairo and he survived by a miracle.

Now there are Arab names also in the list :

  • Mohamed Bouazizi , the man who sparked the Arab revolutions starting from his own country ,I really wish insh Allah to find this man as the Time man of the Year 2011.
  • Tawakul Karman from Yemen , I did not say this before but the Yemeni women and their role in revolution are historical.
  • Al Jazeera , I do not know if the question should be : What would Al Jazeera do without the Arab revolutions or what the Arab revolutions do without Al Jazeera !!? Of course I am angry from the channel now because of its poor coverage to what is happening in Syria , geopolitics play dirty role here I am afraid.
  • Feisal Abdul Rauf , the controversial NY Emam fighting for Ground Zero mosque. By the way he is from Egyptian origin.
  • Hassan Nasrallah , it is strange that he never made it to the final list despite the huge role he plays in Lebanon.
  • Muqtada Al-Sadr whom I am surprised to see in this year’s list , is he still there !!?

I think these names above are more important than Snooki.

According to the voting results we have the following :

  • Tawakul Karman in no.11 before Lady Gaga :)
  • Mohamed Bouazizi in no.16 :S
  • Mohamed ElBaradei in no.22
  • Wael Ghonim in no.26
  • Al Jazeera in no. 31 before Michelle Obama
  • Lara Logan in no. 127
  • Hassan Nasrallah in no.134
  • Faisal Abdul Rauf in no. 173

  1. This list is for media-made human celebrities. Susan Boyle, Beyonce, and Chris Colfer are in the top 10. I do see Bouazizi and ElBaradei ahead of Sarah Palin, not bad.

    I personally vote 'Tahrir Square' to top the list in 2011.
