Police disperse crowds with tear gas in CairoIt is now clear that the Egyptian riots won’t take Mubarak down. The lack of coordination between the opposition parties, the absence of long-term goals, and nearly nonexistent organizational structure of the protests has allowed the tumult to evolve into yet another Egyptian-style incident like a hunger riot.

Widespread lawlessness, including the escape of inmates from jails, has set the middle class against the protesters.

The appointment of Omar Suleiman as the VP mostly confirms that Mubarak is no longer toying with the idea of passing the reins to his son Gamal, but has pragmatically chosen the Egyptian anti-terrorist tsar as his successor. The problem is that the seventy-four-year-old Suleiman himself will need a successor.

Israeli Arab citizen Amir Makhoul has been sentenced to nine years in prison for espionage and for otherwise assisting Hezbollah.

After the verdict was announced, Makhoul promised to continue his struggle after his eventual release. Which, of course, he will.

According to halacha, the only punishment for assisting Israel’s enemies is execution.

Meanwhile, an illegal immigrant from Eritrea murdered a woman of similar origin.
