These Amazing Egyptian Men and Women Have My Deep Respect and Support

Political pundits and analysts in the West were saying "The protest is losing momentum."

The crowd in Cairo's Tahrir Square and in Alexandria on Tuesday February 8 was apparently the record number..

Here's an aerial shot of Tahrir Square, by AFP:

Another wedding in Tahrir Square, also by AFP. What a great way to start a new life:

According to Al Jazeera, not only they had already self-organized to set up checkpoints, they now have a welcoming party of some sort for the people who enter the square. There are people who patrol the square to keep order and offer help for protesters and journalists. There are food stalls and an outdoor barber shop.

Muslims continue to do their daily prayers, with non-Muslims forming the ring to guard them.

They know instinctively how to self-organize, and what's more amazing to me is that they do it with civility, equality, and fun. There are spontaneous concerts, people of all ages singing to the guitar or oud.

I think these people are natural-born Austrians. Lewrockwell.com and Ludwig von Mises Institute had better start translating their stuff into Arabic.
