After 18 incredible days of a peaceful rebellion, the determination and bravery of the protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo had finally paid off. It's an amazing example of "people power" and they did it without resorting to violence. Huge kudos to the Egyptian people.
It's true that the military will be taking control at first. Al Arabiya (the Arabic- language television news channel) reported - via Twitter - that the Egypt army will suspend parliament, sack the cabinet, and head of constitutional court will lead with military council. Also, the latest news reported today is that Egypt is committed to all national and international agreements.
The whole world will be watching Egypt as a new government is formed and there is a transition to democracy.
Wael Ghonim, the Head of Marketing of Google Middle East and North Africa, delivered this important message to Egyptians via his Twitter account yesterday:
A call to all well-educated Egyptians around the world. Come back ASAP to build our nation.
The world is changing. The power of the people has brought down a dictator by organizing a successful and peaceful revolution.
