Thinking about the Nile....

I was doing my daily blog-roll on Sunday morning (scanning Salon, Huffington Post, etc) when I came across a post by a Rabbi reprimanding Obama and the Administration for being "tone-deaf" to the grass-roots movement in Egypt.

In all fairness, I'm not sure anyone really saw this big of a change coming. Not even the grass-roots organizers. Especially after the momentous Green movement of Iran losing steam just a year ago.

I'm also not sure it's our business what the POTUS could have done concerning the protesters anyway. This was their time, their movement. And they didn't need America in order to make this great awakening that place in their country.

However, I am curious to see what will happen with the tremendous amount of aid we send to Egypt each year...
