Voices of the Middle East and North Africa – February 2, 2011

A first-person account from the very heart of the Egyptian revolution, in Cairo’s aptly named Tahrir Square. (Tahrir meaning Liberation):
Khalil  Bendib talks to activist, blogger and regular contributor Hossam el Hamlawy who has been organizing and defending the popular movement in the streets of Cairo alongside many other of his brothers and sisters.
Then Shahram Aghamir talks to  Khaled Fahmy, who is a NYU Professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and is currently teaching at the American University of Cairo., as well as with Mona El-Ghobashy Professor of Comparative Politics at Barnard College, at Columbia University.
They take an  depth look at the covert and overt strategies of the Mubarak regime  to contain the popular uprising, the strength and weaknesses of the uprising and the role of the Egyptian military in aiding or preventing this revolution.
