    In the process many have formed some unusual bonds that reflect the non-ideological character of the Egyptian youth revolt, which encompasses liberals, socialists and members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    ''I like the Brotherhood most, and they like me,'' says Sally Moore, 32, a psychiatrist, a Coptic Christian and an avowed leftist and feminist of mixed Irish-Egyptian roots. ''They always have a hidden agenda, we know, and you never know when power comes how they will behave. But they are very good with organising, they are calling for a civil state just like everyone else, so let them have a political party just like everyone else - they will not win more than 10 per cent, I think.''

    Many in the circle met during their university days. Islam Lotfi, a lawyer who is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood Youth, says his group used to enlist others from the tiny leftist parties to stand with them in calling for civil liberties, to make their cause seem more universal. Many are now allies in the revolt, including Zyad al-Elaimy, 30, a lawyer who was then the leader of a communist group.

    Elaimy, who was imprisoned four times and suffered multiple broken limbs from torture for his political work, now works as an assistant to Mohamed ElBaradei, who won a Nobel peace prize for his work with the International Atomic Energy Agency. In turn, his group built ties to other young organisers like Moore.

    One light seen by most of the world today is the one shining on the Caliphate that is said to be the holy duty of Muslims to install and give precedence to, the en"light"enment came to America 9-11-01 our confidence and "what me worry" attitude were shaken into great agitation. Fear and agitation are not sedatives,,, both can cause one to hurt someone even ones self,,, fortunately we have Heath Care

    Only time will tell if Israel is more or less secure under the New Egypt. I will say this -- the Egyptian youth who are technically savvy are not just talking to each other, and they do not all seem like radical Muslims. I agree with Mr. Fitnah.
