A Glance At Arab World Protests
Unfortunately the conspiracy against Muslim World of the USA seems to be successful. Turmoils, processions, protests , deathes and injuries are increasing day by day. My Brothers please do not fall pray to the fraudulent policy of America. USA has started crusade against Muslims anmd as it can not attack on any country so through the state people USA is going to devastate Muslim Ummah. Please My Dear Brothes In Islam do protest , take procession but not to replace your present rulers but make them right with respect of edadicating hunger, leaving lavishly livings, care the people, decrease prices of food items, provide chances of employment, forse your rulers to take all other steps for the welfare of the masses. But, please understand the danmgerous policy of USA. Democracy is most dangerous system of government. We Muslims can not make it run in true sense. What do you think the leaders you will elect through elections will not live in Palaces ? will not they be spending all the national money on themselves. Will they be sitting with you, will they be eating like you.? Never learn lesson from the so called democracy of Pakistan. Read the following paragraph and, see what is going on in the Muslim World and think who is the loser We the Muslims or the Western Kafirs? That the Western Press is highlighting? Do you think after the outer of Zai ul Abadeen Ali and Hosni Mubarak, the Tunisian and Egyptians brothers got the objective which they sacrificed for?
A summary of developments in the Arab world, as instability and anti-government protests inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia spread in the region.
Libyan forces fire machine-guns at mourners at a funeral for anti-government protesters in the eastern city of Benghazi. A doctor at one Benghazi hospital said 20 people were killed Sunday.
Libya is oil-rich, but an estimated one-third of its people live in poverty. The protesters demand the resignation of Moammar Gadhafi, who has ruled for 42 years. Gadhafi has clamped down, but has also promised to replace some government administrators to defuse anger.
Human Rights Watch said more than 200 people died mostly in Benghazi, from Thursday through Saturday. Switzerland-based Libyan activist Fathi al-Warfali said 11 people were killed in the city of Beyida on Wednesday night. The latest numbers brought the toll to at least 225 since Wednesday.
Several thousand protesters swarm the governmental palace to demand the ouster of the provisional government. Police briefly fired warning shots to disperse the crowd that defied government warnings not to challenge emergency measures enacted after the toppling of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's 23-year rule last month.
Thousands of people march in cities across Morocco, demanding greater democracy in the North African kingdom. Demonstrators shouted slogans calling for economic opportunity, educational reform, better health services and help in coping with rising living costs.
The demonstrations are Morocco's first since anti-government protests started spreading throughout the Arab world. The demonstrators' main target was the parliament, though they will likely put pressure on King Mohammed VI, who is seen as a reformer, but still holds absolute authority.
Yemen's president offers to oversee a dialogue between the ruling party and the opposition, in a bid to diffuse 11 days of protests across the country calling for his ouster. Opposition groups refuse all dialogue with Ali Abdullah Saleh, a key U.S. ally, as long as security forces suppress demonstrations. At least nine people have died since the protests began.
The demonstrators demand the resignation of Saleh, who has ruled the Arab world's poorest nation for 32 years. The main grievances are poverty and corruption. Saleh's promises not to run for re-election in 2013 or to set up his son as an heir have failed to quell the anger.
Bahrain's opposition weighs the regime's offer for talks after nearly a week of protests calling for the tiny Gulf nation's monarchy to give up its near-absolute control over key policies and positions. Deep bitterness underpins the political haggling after battles that included riot police opening fire at protesters, then pulling back to let them occupy a landmark square. At least seven people have been killed and hundreds injured.
Bahrain hosts the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet, the main U.S. military counterweight to Iran's efforts to expand its reach into the Gulf. Other Gulf Arab leaders strongly back the nation's ruling Sunni dynasty, fearing that Shiite powerhouse Iran could gain further footholds through the uprising led by Bahrain's Shiite majority.
Jordan's King Abdullah II calls for "quick and real" reforms to give the public a greater role in governing and to eliminate corruption following anti-government protests over the last seven weeks. Activists are demanding a stronger role in politics and greater political freedoms.
The king, a hereditary monarch and close U.S. ally, called for a change in a heavily disputed election law that critics say favors his loyalists. He did not mention curbing his own power to dismiss the prime minister and the parliament and rule by decree.
Descendants of desert nomads demonstrate for a third day to demand Kuwaiti citizenship and its lavish benefits. The stateless Arabs hold no citizenship but have been settled in the oil-rich Gulf nation for generations. Security forces fired tear gas to disperse them on Saturday.
Kuwait's parliament speaker appeals for an end to the protests.
