Egyptian President Does Not Step Down

Honsni Mubarack speaks to the Egyptian people on TV--tells them he is not stepping down but delegating some responsibilities to his vice president. This still of the Egyptian president, from the New York Times, about sums up how Mubarack is playing the people of Egypt. No matter how you feel about removing him, right now he is definitely playing his people, pulling at their feelings.

The showing of the sole of the shoe is deeply disrespectful in Arab culture. This is the response of the people in the square to Mubarack's speech.
