Listen to political science professor Mona El-Ghobashy and other experts discuss the protests underway in Egypt on NPR's "On Point with Tom Ashbrook". An overview of the conversation from the "On Point" website:
"We can’t take our eyes off Egypt. The United States can’t. The Arab world can’t. The whole world can’t. It is so compelling. And so consequential what happens now, what happens next.
There is the thrilling sight of Egyptians standing up for themselves, against dictatorship and corruption. There are the questions still over what happens with this uprising. Whether it fully succeeds, partly succeeds. And then, what “success” means.
A “new era” it’s being called already, no matter what happens. From Cairo’s Liberation Square to the world, we look at the message from Egypt."
