A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

In the last few weeks we have all watched as a firestorm of reform works its way through the middle east, centered of course in Egypt. We are seeing many images that frame the situation in Egypt as volatile and violent. We are being told a  story of a thirty year dictatorship and  many faceted social movement in sound bytes that take minutes.

The reporting has been OK given mainstream media bias but it misses an important question: Will a dictatorship, even a crumbling one really let the whole world into its world?

Rachel Maddow takes a few minutes more to look at how the story of Egypt is being told and why it is so important. Watch the video and continue to journey with those seeking peace and democracy in Egypt!

    Thank you.
    Concise, clear and helpful.
    Especially about how the movement started as non-violent and the violence against it is tactical.
