E quando tanto se fala do Egipto, ler, ler sempre, ler muito

Porque Como um Verão Que Não Voltará, de Mohamed Berrada, talvez ajude a perceber que "há mais coisas no céu e na terra do que aquelas com que sonha a nossa filosofia".

Just got this:

Dear (_________),

Since day one of the democratic uprising of the Egyptian people against Hosni Mubarak, elite Washington debated how to react to the fast-changing events in Egypt.

One idea we never heard: AN APOLOGY.

Join us in calling for President Obama to issue an apology to the people of Egypt. Add your name to this message:


We call on you, Mr. President, to apologize to the people of Egypt on behalf of the U.S. public for our government’s crime of having propped up a vicious dictator all these years. Make it simple, make it clear, without equivocation. And do it quickly.

A forthright apology can help us reset our relationship with the people of Egypt, who suffered deeply and long under the U.S.-supported Mubarak dictatorship, which used the $1.3 billion in annual U.S. military aid to repress and intimidate Egyptians.

We need a new direction, Mr. President. And we will take it upon ourselves to engage in people-to-people diplomacy.

The undersigned urge you to apologize on our behalf – and pledge to extend our own loud and clear apology to the people of Egypt.
