What started out as a day of anger ended in joyous celebration. Last night the people heard Mubarak say he was going to stay President until the elections in September. This angered the protesters so much they planned new protests and dubbed today Farewell Friday. Hundreds of thousands joined marches in Alexandria, Cairo and across Egypt.
Just before the afternoon prayer the Army issued a statement saying they wanted the protests to stop and would guarantee Mubarak kept his word in September. This did not appease the protesters and they defied the Army. The End Game was set in motion and Mubarak finally threw in the towel in the early evening by announcing his resignation from the position of President of Egypt with immediate effect.
After 18 days of protest the people of Egypt did it. President Hosni Mubarak – on the thrown for the last 30 years – finally listened to the people of Egypt and quit. This joyous news sparked celebrations by Egyptians from London to Jordan to Athens to Paris to Germany to Paris to Alexandria and to Tahris Square Cairo.
We wish the Egyptian people well in their search for a stable and democratic country. It is not going to be an easy ride, but the first steps have been taken.
