Facebook pages have been launched calling for a second Egyptian revolution, on May 27, to replace the Council with a civil presidential council

To all who have studied the French revolution, the most prominent part is not the actual revolt: only a regime so in love with itself is unable to realize that when you have a massive social schism between the haves and the have nots without any well-funded government safety net would result in anything but beheadings and a popular uprising (right Tim Geithner?), but the Thermidorian Reaction imminently following the first wave of discontent. And as we wrote back in March sharing our outlook on the (first) Egyptian revolution, that very soon we would see the imminent second “revulsion” part in Cairo, as it happened in Paris over 200 years ago, so it seems that a second Egyptian revolution is now on the docket. From the Middle East Media Research Institute: “In response to reports that the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces is considering pardoning Mubarak and his family in exchange for the transfer of all their property and fortune to the state, Facebook pages have been launched calling for a second Egyptian revolution, on May 27, to replace the Council with a civil presidential council.” This next time it will be different. We promise.

In response to reports that the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces is considering pardoning Mubarak and his family in exchange for the transfer of all their property and fortune to the state, Facebook pages have been launched calling for a second Egyptian revolution, on May 27, to replace the Council with a civil presidential council.

The pages also call for purging the state institutions of corruption and freeing those arrested during the revolution.

One of the pages has 22,000 members, and the April 6 party expressed its support for it.

In contrast, the Muslim Brotherhood has announced its support for the military, and its opposition to another revolution – a position expressed on other Facebook pages.

The military council itself stated that it is not interfering at all in the question of the punishment for Mubarak or anyone else from the previous regime.
