Egypt crisis: More danger for protesters?

[Update 11:33 a.m. Cairo, 4:33 a.m. ET] As protests in Egypt entered a third week Tuesday, the scene in Cairo's Tahrir Square might appear relatively calm. Cameras no longer captured images of Molotov cocktails and chunks of concrete flying through the air. But some say more danger could come.

[Update 8:53 p.m. Cairo, 1:53 p.m. ET] Google executive Wael Ghonim has been released in Egypt, the company announced. "Huge relief - Wael Ghonim has been released. Our love to him and his family," the company tweeted shortly after 8 p.m. in Cairo (1 p.m. ET). Ghonim's Twitter account, which had not had a posting since he went missing January 28, carried a tweet around the same time. "Freedom is a bless (sic) that deserves fighting for it," the tweet said, ending with the hashtag ".Jan25," a reference to the Egypt protests.

    Our prophet said; Beware one will arise and dominate, this is the one that's coming in Egypt, one that will be against infidels and be on the side of our people, at last we are going to have a true leader and help crush all infidels

      You are the one that sounds arrogant. Killing I thought in all religions was a sin. I guess some skipped that chapter and went just for the 72 virgin regime thing?
