Mubarak himself flew to his isolated palace in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, 250 miles from the turmoil in Cairo.
His fall came 32 years to the day after the collapse of the shah's government in Iran.
Vice President Suleiman — who appears to have lost his post as well in the military takeover — appeared grim as he delivered the short announcement.
"In these grave circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave his position as president of the republic," he said. "He has mandated the Armed Forces Supreme Council to run the state. God is our protector and succor."
The success of this revolution is being attributed to "The Social Media" such as Facebook and Twitter. Twenty years ago, the Soviet Union fell because of Fax machines, which spoiled the government's attempts to keep the people ignorant and to censor the news. It appears that we have graduated to a whole new level of the Media--that is, Media-Persia.
I don't know if Iran (Persia) really had a hand in this revolution or not, but they are trying to take credit for it. And the fact that Mubarak fell on the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979 seems to link Persia with the Social Media.
The Egyptian people are euphoric at the moment, believing that they now have "freedom." They will soon awaken to the reality of the situation. There is no true freedom apart from Jesus Christ. You can change political parties and ideologies, but until you change the heart, freedom will always be illusive. This is also why I do not focus upon political issues in America either. There are many others who believe they are called to that arena. My calling is to deal with issues of the heart through a better relationship with Jesus Christ. With Him as our Foundation, then we can begin to learn His ways and His Laws, so that we understand how the mind of God can be implemented in the family, in churches, in society, in economics, and in government.
