em hotep all

Just to update you on the situation at the museum:
There have been streetfights right around the museum building all evening. At one point it was said on Al-Jazeera that soldiers weren't properly guarding the museum and there might have been more break-ins. I sincerely hope that turns out to be wrong!!
As of now, we can't do anything but to wait and to pray.

And you know, I'm feeling good about the fact that the area of Midan Tahrir and the street leading north along the museum is right now under control of the anti-Mubarak crowd. I'm trusting them more than I trust the government thugs when it comes to respecting the heritage of their people.

Short update:
An al-Jazeera journalist stated that the military had built up a kind of checkpoint right inside the museum, she knew that since she had been detained in there for a while (if I understood that correctly from the live stream).
Positive thing: they seem to still be guarding the museum. Since the fights are going on right beside the museum, in my opinion they should rather be guarding their people right now...

Agreed 100%.  The loss of the artifacts in the museum would be an incalculable tragedy to both Egypt and humanity.  But in the end, people are more important.

I will also agree with this.  Artifacts are important and I hope and pray that they are not destroyed, but people are still more important.

Now Pro-Mubarak protesters fight Anti-Munarak protesters. Their now using fire-bombs on each other... right on the side of the museum. Pray that the building does not go up in smoke! And pray for the people!

I'm not sure if anyone got to see this.  It's Zahi Hawass speaking about the Museum in Cairo and the looting that happened.

Interestingly, the guy was arrested right in front of a statue of Sekhmet... !!! (I know, I shouldn't be so surprised.)

Yeah I mentioned that I wasn't surprised that he was arrested in-front of the statue of Sekhmet on Youtube and someone made a comment that I didn't like. I think that he thinks that I'm stupid in believing in Sekhmet.

@Ffollowing Sekhmet:  People are free to believe or disbelieve as they see fit. As I am so very fond of saying, "a plant doesn't need to 'believe in' photosynthesis in order to green. So humans don't necessarily have to believe in the Gods in order for them to be real and valid.

Others can deny all they want, in the end it is what we hold personally dear and true that is what matters.   Faith is just that....faith.

Sorry - I didn't read all the comments. No offense meant; not trying to steal your thunder.

Ditto, we as people shouldn't deteriorate ourselves into animals. Even if many valuable things dear to us are lost. The protesters' attempts to keep the museum safe should be admired. The artifacts are very important nonetheless and they need to be safe for our future generations to enjoy.

Oh yes, the irony.

PS:
Now recently, Libya has gone out of control and Greece could potentially as well. I pray that things don't get any worse.
