Egypt is at the end of a precipice. Freedom and liberty surrounds Egypt with a dictatorship that is still in place. Nobody knows for sure if Mubarak’s changes in government and further reforms are strictly to appease other countries’ pressures. After all, Mubarak’s moves could also be a charade to trick young Egyptians to keep him in power for as long as possible. Egyptians are asking for a radical change, a new form of government; more freedoms, jobs and for Mubarak to step down once and for all.
The problem is how to change and establish a new form of government on such a large country, with several borders to protect and a peace treaty with Israel that may or not expire. On Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks (not to mention Al-Jazeera) the anti-American sentiments are strong. Egyptians call Americans hypocrites because the US supports Mubarak’s dictatorship through the billions of dollars that go to Egypt. Where’s the money? Only Mubarak can answer that question. Egyptians and Americans want that “foreign aid” cut off.
A selfless way that Hosni Mubarak can guide Egypt on a positive direction is to seriously and honestly establish a change of form and structure of government from the ground up before he steps down. Mubarak must grant Egyptians’ wishes of what it seems a democratic government, change their Constitution and bring in the best people that do not have hidden agendas and have the capacity to not only deal with Egyptians’ issues, but be loyal to Egypt, to Egyptians and not allow outside religious extremists to interfere or take over. Mubarak can step down and allow a new form of government flourish and Egyptians can create their own path of freedom.
Hosni Mubarak has let power and greed in him, and he must relinquish all of it, come clean and get out of Egypt (that is, if he’s not out already.)
